Quantity:

Ayurveda, with its base in medicinal plants and its origins in ancient Indian history, is recognised as one of the major systems of alternative and complementary medicine. Of particular significance has been the fact that the therapeutic values cited in the ancient texts and the oral tradition have been subject to continuous interpretation and consolidation by scholars in the field.

The concerns of medical botany, horticulture and the industry associated with these which have focused on the treatment of disease conditions have lent critical importance to the necessity for the accurate documenting and identification of such plants.

Indian Medicinal Plants, based on a treatise prepared by S. Raghunatha Iyer, a scholar of both Sanskrit and Ayurveda, aims to make an authoritative contribution to the field. The original work which drew on classical texts, current research as well as the oral medical knowledge of tribal groups has been updated by scholars associated with the Arya Vaidya Sala in Kottakkal, India.

This unique compendium offers profiles of 500 key species with detailed taxonomic information. One of the lead features of this compilation is the special technique used in the illustrations, both colour and line, which aims to achieve authenticity of texture, colour and form. The outline information includes distribution and the popular nomenclature in English, Sanskrit, Hindi, Malayalam and Tamil. The main texts present properties and uses in a format which cites ancient verse texts and ethnobotanical sources.

This rare work in five volumes should be of special interest to practitioners of alternative medicine, students of Ayurveda, the research and industry associated with medical botany, pharmacologists, sociologists and medical herbalists. The compendium should also be of relevance to the fields of ethnobotany and Sanskrit studies.

TESTIMONIALS

It has given me great pleasure browsing through your netsite and choosing some wonderful Sanskrit books.It is a sad state of affairs that most book stores do not keep such Sanskrit books,the greatest disappointment was that even Crossword does not.That made placing the order on the net and receiving books hassle free and in good time from you even more encouraging. Thank you and God bless...
