Non-communicable diseases and lifestyle disorders are on the rise in the present scenario (Sedentary jobs, stress and wrong food habits). Ayurveda is a choice of medicine for such conditions without a second thought these days. In this regard, the present case study is a silver lining in the successful management of such chronic conditions.
