ABSTRACT: – Ayurgenomics is the integration of the principles of Ayurveda with genomics. It presents a personalized approach in the predictive, preventive, and curative aspects of stratified medicine with molecular variability. It expresses the study of interindividual variability due to genetic variability in humans for assessing susceptibility, and establishing diagnosis and prognosis, mainly on the basis of the constitution type of a person’s Prakriti. Prakriti is a fusion of the comparative proportion of three main things, i.e., Tridoshas, namely, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Prakriti is denominator in Ayurveda, which defines physical, physiological, and psychological traits of an individual and is the template for individualized diet, lifestyle counseling, and treatment. Prakriti is a key factor in determining individual’s susceptibility to disease as well as response to treatment include the recognition of both the extrinsic (environmental) and intrinsic factors (physiologic and genetic). Ayurgenomics is an emerging field of interest where the therapeuticand lifestyle regime selection is made on the basis of clinical assessment of an individual maintaining one’s Prakriti. This Ayurveda-inspired concept of personalized medicine is a novel concept of genomics suitable for one’s genetic makeup with the help of Ayurveda. Here, we propose and present this novel concept of Ayurgenomics and its emerging areas of research, which may unfold future possibilities toward smart yet safe therapeutics.

Keywords: Ayyurgenomics, Prakriti, Tridosha, Genomics, Correlation with genes.

I. INTRODUCTION

There has been with many life-style disorders global increase in prevalence of chronic and complex diseases. Due to slow development of new drugs medical need is remain unmet which leads to, many complications. Due to frequent side-effects many of the drugs being withdrawn. With respect to disease and individuals there is massive variability in success of treatment. Due to cancer and infectious diseases, resistance to drugs is a common problem and they required lifetime medication[1].
