The previous editions of this book were well received by research scholars, teachers and practitioners of Ayurveda and general public. The Keraliya Panchakarma are parts and parcel of Poorvakarmas and they are quoted in original granthas of caraka and Susruta, but they same is practiced in a refined form by the Kerala Vaidyas. The details of the Karmas are with Sanskrit slokas, photos and along with Hindi translation available to readers. Those who are interested may go through this book.
The Panchakarma therapy detoxicates the body tissues, cells, and cleanness the system so the drugs consumption for diseases is minimal with maximum benefit. It is beneficial in health, in daily regimen, in seasonal regimen and in diseases. In Kannada this book is the only book, which is available for teachers, students and general public. I am indebted to all the authors and publishers of the books cited in the bibliography.
