The holistic living approach of Ayurveda has its origins in Indian tradition and culture. The deep-rooted ancient knowledge of Ayurveda and therapeutic herbs has been reintroduced to the world as a result of pandemic-related global disturbances. It is predicated on the idea that mental, physical, and spiritual wellness are intricately entwined. The Ministry of AYUSH is supporting the Government of India’s initiative to promote medical tourism through ‘Ayurveda Parv.’ With the potential to become a pioneer in the study, production, and consumption of natural goods and traditional medicines, Shillong, Meghalaya and its neighbouring regions are home to a diversity of medicinal plants, both known and undiscovered.
