In spite of phenomenal advancement of modern medicine, many diseases continue to remain incurable, and for some curable diseases, the after-effects of drugs bring more miseries than the disease itself. Ayurvedic physicians handle these diseases with considerable success and since centuries Ayurvedic therapies are well known to be free from toxicity. Scholars and physicians of different countries have contributed in the past, to the development of the fundamental principles and practices of this science as a result of which Ayurveda has universal approach and it is not confined to any geographical, religious or political group. Therefore, Ayurveda is not the property of the present day. Ayurvedic physicians alone, and doctors of modern medicine in this country and abroad have equal, if not more, right over this science of health. For enabling them to appreciate and utilize this so far unexplored knowledge to mitigate the sufferings of humanity it is necessary to make Ayurvedic principles and practices intelligible to them. This is what is attempted in this book.
