COVID-19 has been by far the single most disruptive event in the recent past which has caused immense suffering and loss of human lives at a global scale. The pandemic has spread to the remotest places on earth including Antarctica. Ayurveda, the ancient science of healing which focusses on prevention and maintenance of good health by having the right thinking, balanced diet and an understanding of balance between body and mind may offer a solution to the already overwhelmed healthcare system in most countries. Although vaccination has slowed down the spread of virus but the long-term efficacy of vaccines is yet to be verified. As per the WHO, epidemics are becoming more common nowadays and therefore one ‘s own immunity and the country’s healthcare systems are the major defences before vaccines come into play. This paper reviews the literature regarding holistic approach of Ayurveda towards tackling the pandemic both at the individual and community level.
