From the Publisher

Scientific Foundation of Ayurveda is a treatise on the basic fundamentals of this holistic medicine. This book is divided into nine chapters.

Introduction consists of the comparison between the concepts of Ayurveda with other traditional medicines of the world. In the chapter of Indian Philosophies, an earnest effort is made to trace the roots of Ayurveda. Scientific face of spiritualism is brought out very clearly in the language of basic sciences in totally unambiguous terms. In chapter two author explained the concepts of Panchamahabhutas and Trigunas in the language of current sciences, along with experimental proof. In chapter three Tridoshas are explained in language of biochemistry and molecular biology.

Most interesting is the chapter on Embryogenesis and Prakriti. Various mechanisms proposed by Charak with regards to above said subjects are explained in terms of modern understanding of embryogenesis, intra-uterine fetal growth programme and genetic characterization of an individual. Seven prime elements of the body called Saptadhatus and their bioconversions are also explained on the basis of modern biochemistry. In subsequent chapters etiopathology of disease, Charak's ten types of examination and pharmaecology of Rasa, Guna, Virya, Vipaka and Prabhava are elaborated in detail. Lastly, Panchakarma, Rasayana and Vajikarana are also described. Last chapter discusses some concept-based Ayurveda researches by author and also need for integration of Ayurveda into main stream medicine.

The book is intended to bring out the true essence of Ayurveda with the use of totally new scientific vocabulary. The approach is very revolutionary in the sense of achievement. It is a common belief that Ayurvedic linguistic have no equivalent modern terms. This apparently impossible task is accomplished by the author with great finesse. Unique distinction of this work is to decode the subtle messages of the cryptic Ayurvedic sutras giving a very rational contemporary scientific terminology. With the vanishing of linguistic barriers between the modern medicine and Ayurveda, it will be easy to bridge the two never meeting banks of river. This book makes easier for a reader who is trained in modern basic sciences to appreciate Ayurvedic better and similarly it will also help an Ayurvedic student to understand his science in the context of current sciences. Ayurveda is a treasure of knowledge and experiential wisdom. This book presents a new approach of integration. The 21st century medicine can blaze a new trail to scale new peaks of success, with this approach presented by the book.
