Ayurveda is more than just a medical system, as it does not only deal with medicine and the cure of ailments, but it deal with all aspects of life and can be literally translated as the knowledge or science of life. The rationale for the acceptance of Ayurveda worldwide is because of its role in promotion of health, prevention of diseases and mitigation of diseases. Taking excellent care of one's body, psyche, and soul promotes corporal, psychological, and ethereal development, which can be achieved by adhering to various Ayurvedic principles such as Dinacharya (a daily regimen), Rutucharya (a seasonal regimen), and so on. Ayurveda's holistic strategy, which treats the patient as a whole (i.e., with interventions aimed at overall corporal, psychological, and ethereal well-being), makes it an excellent preference for lifestyle diseases. To combat emerging challenges of healthcare like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, skin diseases, lifestyle disorders etc, there is a need for functional integration of Ayurveda and allied medicinal systems.
