Ayurveda Materia Medica

Ayurveda has gained an incredible amount of popularity in the West in the last 10 years. Few people realize that this natural science of health and well being has a more than 5000 year recorded history. Ayurveda has lasted this long because it has real, lasting value as a paradigm for health and wellness. Of particular interest is the classification of people according to "body types" and the tailoring of the therapeutic action to the constitutional type so indicated. We also have a number of other traditional health modalities represented including the Chinese and Tibetan models.

This present volume is the first of the Todarananda Ayurveda Saukhyam Series. It deals with the portion of the Materia Medica which is generally known as Nighantu. The Materia Medica of Ayurveda represents a rich storehouse of knowledge of drugs based on centuries of experience. Scientists, research workers, physicians and students interested in Ayurveda will appreciate this volume as it is translated into a language which is generally understood by all.
