Global Trends in Traditional Indian Medicine Research – With Special Reference to G20

India ‘s presidency at G 20 is a golden opportunity for showcasing the country ‘s potential areas to contribute towards the world’s economic growth. Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicine which is the soft power of the country, must mobilise communities towards lifestyle as per ancient wisdom. This is possible by targeting “Life for All,” the key word given by our honourable Prime Minister at the climate for change summit last year. Life can be achieved by reducing poverty and bringing health for all by adopting a zero carbon lifestyle, pro-planet behaviour and integrated wellness with Ayurveda. The world’s economic growth depends upon “life “which further depends upon health, climate and reduction in poverty. Health can be achieved by an integrated approach by adopting an Ayurvedic lifestyle.

The youth can play a major role in achieving the above targets by creating start ups for environment cleaning projects for good climate and creating apps for sensitisation and awareness of an Ayurvedic lifestyle among the public. One health, one earth and one family, which is the tag line of G 20 2023, can be achieved by inculcating Ayurveda wisdom for a better life and mind.

Precision Nutrition and Meal Planning Through Ayurveda

Right from the conception, Ayurveda is designed to achieve wellness and longevity. Its knowledge base aims to educate and empower every individual regarding their discrete Psycho-somatic identity, through which it influences the diet and lifestyle choices that best fit a person’s health needs. Personalisation is done by determining one’s Prakruti (unique body type) and their emotional state, also great importance is given to Agni (metabolic temperament), Desha and Kaala (environment and seasonal variations), and Vyayama (physical activity).Detailed description about the qualities of various dietary substances, choice of herbs and spices helps with proper food combining. Finally emphasizing on the rules of eating and subjective quantity of consumption, Ayurveda highlights good eating practices for health and longevity. This presentation aims to highlight the principles of Ayurvedic nutrition and meal planning that guide individuals, families and communities towards precision diet.
