COVID-19 Lessons and Emerging Strategies in Ayurveda

The Council for Ayurveda Research will host a one-of-a-kind international summit from 7 a.m., September 25, to 5 p.m., September 27, bringing together the latest, direct and actual work on COVID-19 using AYUSH systems, an acronym for Ayurveda, yoga and naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and homeopathy, the six Indian systems of medicine prevalent and practiced in India and some of the neighboring Asian countries.

The global pandemic has put huge amounts of stress on healthcare systems, and it has also shone a light on what is considered as alternate and complementary systems of medicine. The summit will cover case studies with preventative and therapeutic protocols, a deeper understanding of COVID-19 with AYUSH systems, innovation, policy and more.

Many landmark decisions have been made and pioneering projects have been launched within a short span of time, resulting in AYUSH systems now being utilized in the forefront for the treatment of COVID-19, not just for prevention. This has facilitated immense data generation and documentation. It seems relevant and necessary to organize a meeting of the minds to review and consolidate the conclusions and trends from analysis of this ongoing massive learning.
