This is a comprehensive book on ayurvedic medicine, which covers all the aspects of ayurveda, presenting scientific interpretations to classical concepts of ancient India. This handy manual will prove very useful for students and researchers as well as for practitioners of alternative medicine.

Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity is an ancient Indian system of holistic medicine, which has emerged as an important form of holistic therapy throughout the world. Its essence is the conjunction of the body and the mind and their coordination that achieves optimal health and happiness.

This book is a resource of information on Ayurveda and presents a comprehensive study in an easy-to-understand style. A simplified exposition of complicated theories with minimal use of technical vocabulary makes the book intelligible to scholars and general readers alike. It reiterates that Ayurveda is not based on mere assumptions but on pure scientific facts. It is built upon the concept of Tridosha, the three bio-regulatory principles that sustain the human body.

The distinguishing features of this book are its classification of diseases, focus on causative factors and a discussion on various forms of therapy and treatment. The attention paid to detail should make it ideal for students of Ayurveda and all those interested in this system.
