Globally, traditional systems have experienced a resurgence in recent times. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 88% (170 of 194) of WHO member states report the use of traditional medicine (TM) among all WHO regions. Both in the governmental and private sectors, the Ayush system has grown significantly in recent years. However, there is substantial potential for further development and expansion in the Ayush sector. To promote growth and address difficulties that impede further growth, the Ayush sector needs innovations and research. This paper attempts to highlight the innovations that are necessary for the various potential fields of Ayush. It is essential to strengthen the Ayush systems further and increase opportunities and standards of various domains under Ayush to meet the current health needs. Essential areas for promoting innovations in Ayush include Education, Research, Clinical Practice, Health and Wellness, Public Health, Digital innovations and technologies, and pharmacovigilance. It is essential to create an ecosystem for innovation in these areas. There is a need for Ayush human resources capacity building, identifying young talents, and supporting them for innovations. Innovative ways that bring together Ayush systems and modern medicine can accomplish the promise of futuristic integrative health systems.
