Life is an opportunity to unleash and experience abundance. In the constantly changing and hyper competitive society we live today, it is a challenge to maintain wellness, which is the very need to liberate abundance. It is fact that wellness obtained by medication is conditioned and limited. Wellness flows as result of adopting a conscious healthy lifestyle.

The efforts at FRLHT-IHST are supported by various specialized centres that take care of research, documentation, dissemination, training, teaching and conservation of Indian medical heritage.
Why a university for trans-disciplinary health sciences and technology why a university for trans-disciplinary health sciences and technology?
All over the world there is evidence of growing 'public' demand for increasing available healthcare choices, based upon best knowledge and practices, drawn from different healthcare systems.
India can be a world leader in this new field of ‘trans-disciplinary health sciences and technology' because we have a reasonable degree of competence in bio-medical and life sciences and we possess an incredibly rich medical heritage of our own.
A university platform is needed to establish foundational, theoretical, experimental and functional relationships between the traditional indian health sciences, bio-medical sciences and other basic natural and social sciences and to deliver the knowledge created in novel and efficient ways for societal benefit.
It is a task that is required to be sustained through creative exploration and applications for at least a century ahead.
“To revitalize Indian Medical Heritage”
Application of traditional knowledge blended with modern science and technology to design healthcare solutions that are low-cost, safe, effective and accessible to rural and urban populations in India and globally.
The university has two central goals viz:
1. Development of affordable, accessible and effective strategies to significantly enhance Health Security of communities & their livestock.
2. Creation of new knowledge in health sciences through trans-disciplinary research in basic, clinical, pharmacological, pharmaceutical and social sciences.
It also has 2 supplementary goals:
i. Design of innovative and scalable strategies for Conservation and sustainable use of natural resources (flora, fauna, metals and minerals) used by India’s medical heritage.
ii. Training of high quality human resources at doctoral, PG, UG levels and including rural and urban schools, households and grass-root community workers, in selected dimensions of traditional knowledge and Trans-Disciplinary Health Sciences and Technology using as feasible the ICT platform for global reach.
