Ayurveda: The Science of Traditional Indian Medicine

 
Vaidya Bhagwan Dash (Editor) Vaidya Bhagwan Dash (Translator) Suhasini Ramaswamy (Author)
Synopsis Rooted in the wisdom and practices of a 2000-year old civilization, handed down by generations of sages and ascetics, Ayurveda or the 'science of life' is one of the oldest systems of healing in the world. Although its approach is holistic, its theories are logical and succint. This book tries to introduce the lay reader to the basic principles of an ancient Indian science whose aim is to keep the body healthy in order to bring tranquility to the mind and satisfy the spirit by prescribing medicines which always originate in nature. The book discusses lucidly the practical concerns of Ayurveda focusing on the Ayurvedic concept of the human body, causes of diseases, their cures, medicinal herbs used and certain basic measures to keep sickness at bay. The authors also offer a range of home remedies which can be safely tried out by readers without any fear of violent side-effects or reactions. Vividly illustrated in colour, this book makes for interesting and informative reading.
