India has a rich tradition of herbal remedies, practiced through Ayurveda and other disciplines. While herbal healthcare backed by the deep-rooted ancient science of Ayurveda had been widely practiced and accepted in India, there are several challenges that hinder its practice today. The first is the dwindling knowledge among the new generations about the herbs and their properties. The second, related hurdle is the lack of a mechanism of creating awareness in a systematic manner. However, the biggest obstacle is the easy accessibility to these herbs, especially in an urban environment. There are herbs, many known but may be less known, for essentially all major ailments. However, due to lack of information and constraint in space, these herbs are not easily available in an urban environment. The CSIR-NISTADS ‘Ayur Vatika’ is an attempt to bring this herbal healthcare to home.
