Ayurveda has its own significance taking into account the historical and cultural importance will only benefit India. Ayurveda and its treatment is going places, most department of ancient treatment like Naturopathy, Unani and Yoga is exploring export opportunities. At this stage if plants are extinct it will hamper the industry, and we may have a blink nature in Ayurveda.
