The global community is facing the pandemic of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus - 2 (SARS- CoV- 2). In spite of worldwide efforts to contain it, the pandemic is spreading rapidly, and there is an urgent need for the development of evidence-based therapeutic strategy. The dimensions of this pandemic require an urgent harnessing of all knowledge systems available globally. So far, no cure specific to COVID-19 has been developed either in modern western medicine or in traditional medicine. In this case report, a 30-year-old male health worker, diagnosed with COVID-19, was managed with Ayurveda intervention within six days. The patient reported with predominantly moderate symptoms of COVID-19, and the management approach was personalized and holistic in nature incorporating diet, lifestyle, and Samshamana aushadha (~pacifying treatment) along with Satvavajaya chikitsa (~psychotherapy).
