Journal of Ayurveda Case Reports (AyuCaRe) is a Quarterly Journal of All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA). The institute is an autonomous organization under the Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India, New Delhi. AyuCaRe is a multidisciplinary and peer-reviewed journal publishing Case Reports from clinical specialties and provides opportunities for students, researchers and faculty of Ayurveda and allied medical sciences to be a part of it. This initiative is expected to play a pivotal role in researches, further generating evidence base for claims and principles of Ayurveda and allied sciences in a systemic way.
Ayurveda practice is challenging. Many physicians come across with certain clinical situations that have not mentioned in textbooks and presented in an unusual way. On the other hand, physicians may also have success stories for certain conditions, where no satisfactory answers are available in contemporary field. Dissemination of such success practices is a way of sharing knowledge that will help in shaping the health care system, what we see today.
Case Reports help practitioners to share their experiences with peers, researchers, students and other interested. Ayurveda needs more and more evidence based success stories. Journal of Ayurveda Case Reports is focusing on this aspect and attempting to create a unique platform for all stakeholders of Ayurveda to share their experiences.
