Overview for Concepts of Health and Disease in Ayurveda

The book ‘concepts of health and disease in ayurveda’ written by a well known author Prof. P.V. Tewari is a comprehensive book dealing with all the aspects of health and disease i.e. philosophy of ayurveda, components of body involved in health and disease, method of diagnosis with preventive, protective and curative (both sodhana i.e. evacuative and samana i.e. pacificative) treatments with an eye to provide sufficient knowledge for practical application of pancakarma. The therapies not falling strictly within the ambit of sodhana or samana cikitsa are appended; probable mode of action of all therapies is also discussed.

Topics specially preventive and protective care of mother and child though dealt elaborately in classics, yet not specifically emphasized by later authors, have been dealt in detail. Some other topics particularly related to women have also been discussed.

In the book efforts have been made to present the views of different authors giving relevant reference in footnote with the aim that readers besides knowing difference of open ions of the authors can consult the treatises themselves without exhausting their energy in searching the topics scattered at number of places and make their own openions.

It is hoped that the book will prove to be beneficial not only to students but teachers and researchers also.
