For many years, the definition of “health” has remained untouched as a narrow concept, encircling physical well-being from a medical context. Over the past years, different healthcare experts, whether groups or individuals, have developed and defended various definitions of what a proper state of “health” actually means in the present time. Human health cannot be separated from the health of our total planetary biodiversity in today’s world. Human beings live in an interdependent existence with the totality of the living world. We now know how liable our human well-being is to the “health” of the Earth’s energy exchange systems. The sustained good health of populations, along with the holistic approach to health and diseases, also requires a proper management of our social resources, economic relations, and the natural world because today’s public health has its roots in the same socioeconomic variations. India is known for its own traditional medicine, far older than modern medicine, with a state-owned education, practice, and research system. The world has recently recognized science’s efficacy in health and wellness. Ayurveda is not limited to medicine or therapy for a target organ; instead, it implies a holistic approach to life and living in harmony with nature. Ayurveda perceives human beings as the microcosm of the macrocosm and highlights how human life is interconnected and interdependent on nature. In achieving health, it always stresses this connection and uses strategies connecting humans to nature. Ayurveda practices assist individuals in taking control of their health and increasing self-reliance, and re-begin their relationship with the environment. Thus, Ayurveda can play an essential part in the One Nation, One Health System as the whole wellness of a nation and environment rather than individual health.
