Foreword

It gives me immense pleasure to write a foreword to the "Advanced Dravyaguna " authorized by Dr. Chadani Gupta . The Book is facilitating various modes of learning practices in Dravyaguna by considering attention to Dravyaguna and Ayurveda in current scenario. The book aptly presents a modern, luced and concise account of advancement in the field Dravyaguna is a branch Shastra. Most of the topic is explained in the form of tables , flow charts and diagrams to give clarity to the subject. Aushadha (a dravya) is one of the three pillar of all the eight branches of Ayurveda. Dravyaguna is a branch which explains the properties and safe usage of treasure of dravya especially of plant origin. But in present scenario many advanced topic such as Nutraceuticals, consmeceuticals , pharmacovigilance, pharmacogenomics, animal experiments etc. are incorporated in the field of Dravyaguna to make it more exientific and advanced . So this book is very helpful for all U.G. ,P.G. and Phd students and for teachers also as it gives concise and to the point explanation of a topic . The author need to be congratulated for her pioneering venture and it is hoped that many more books in this area will be brought in function.
