Modern medicine consists mostly of antibiotics and chemo-therapeuatic drugs, which are employed to kill the bacterias responsible for production of diseases. These drugs kill not only pathogenic becterias but also becterial flora which is considered essential for the maintence of health and longevity. Moreover, their prolonged use makes the pathogenic becterias resistant to these drugs. They also produce serious side-effects and interfere with the metabolic process of the body, causing more and more diseases, and producing various types of allergic reactions.
Thus, there is an urgent necessity for an alternative and effective system of medicine, which not only cures discases, but also preserves and promotes health. In this field, Ayurveda continues to play a promiment role. It increases the resistance of the patient without producing any side effects.
The diseases discussed in the book are given their allopathic names, so that those conversant with the terminology of modern medicine can easily follow the line of Ayurvedic treatment.
The book mentions the causes and symptoms of diseases according to Ayurveda and prescribes the treatment for them. Most of the drugs used are home remedies which are within the reach of everybody. Standard Ayurvedic preparations manufactured by drug companies are also given.
The book is written mainly for the laymean, as well as foreigners and practitioners of different systems of medicine like Allopathy, Ayurveda and Unani. It is beyond the scope of this book to give descriptions and procedures of manufacture of the drugs mentioned in the book. Most of the common idseases are dealt with in the book and their treatment given along with diet and regimen.
