I am very glad to see the first issue of the case study focused Ayurveda journal by All India Institute of Ayurveda in India.

India has a rich heritage in traditional systems of medicine which include Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, Yoga, Naturopathy, Homeopathy and others.

Traditional herbal medicines an important part of most traditional systems of medicine including Ayurveda. Many people in developing countries still rely on herbal medicines to meet their health needs, particularly in rural and remote areas. Even in areas where modern medicine is available, the interest in herbal medicines has been increasing rapidly in recent years because of their potential contributions to health and well-being, because lifestyle-related diseases are becoming more common across the world.

Traditional herbal medicines are believed to have much to offer in the health promotion, disease prevention and management, particularly for lifestyle-related diseases, through their holistic approach.

The WHO Traditional Medicine strategy 2014-2023, promotes safe and effective use of traditional medicines and has one important strategic objective, that is to build and strengthen the knowledge base on traditional medicines through research. This need for an improved knowledge base was reinforced at the regional consultation on traditional medicine for the WHO South-East Asia region in 2015.

This journal is, therefore, important to build and strengthen evidence-based knowledge in Ayurveda through case studies and their documentation in this region.

I strongly believe that this journal can provide a platform to discuss, share and exchange experiences and knowledge among eminent experts and researchers. This will contribute to promoting evidence-based practices in traditional systems of medicine.
