Introduction: The presented case report depicts gradual revival of a patient with head trauma from semivegetative state with complete Ayurvedic treatment. Main Clinical Findings: The patient was in semivegetative state with least mobility, due to partial motor function loss, drowsiness, speech and memory loss, no sensation or control over micturition and defecation, and need of PEG tube for feeding. Diagnosis: Shirobhighatajanya Vatavyadhi and Sannyasa. Interventions: Complete Ayurvedic treatment was administered focusing on Vatashamana, Raktaprasadana, Agnideepana, Marmaparipalana, and Indriyaprabodhana. Outcome: Mobility, speech and memory improvement, oral solid food intake by herself, and proper sensation and control over micturition and defecation are the main satisfactory outcomes. Conclusions: Timely and complete Ayurvedic diagnosis and Ayurvedic treatment along with Chatushpada Sampatchikitsalaya are the key factors in treating chronic and critical conditions of Marmabhighata.
