Description
Message of Ayurveda

Keeping one’s body and mind healthy is itself the code of Righteousness (Dharma) of every person. An harmonious activity of the body, mind and soul is itself the human life. One acquires physical health by following the regulations of keeping the mind calm, daily routine and seasonal variations. One develops a strong mind by following the rules of righteous conduct (sadvrutta). One attains spiritual health by developing a philosophical attitude and practicing meditation and yoga.

Man is the epitome of the universe. Visualizing the self in the universe is the experience of Self realization and experiencing the universe in the self that is blending with the universe is the most evolved state of man. In this state, man experiences the Absolute Truth (Sat), Absolute Consciousness (Chit) and Supreme Bliss (Anand).

The treatment of a doctor, vaidya or hakim is successful only when the vital energy bestowed by The Almighty, the bestower of life is conducive to if and the patient gets cured completely.

Preface

The skin is the natural covering of the body. It weighs 10% of the body weight and covers a surface area of 18 square feet. It protects the underlying organs from dust, breeze and alteration of temperature. The skin is the sense organ of touch, temperature and pain. Sunlight helps the skin, to manufacture vitamin D from the fat stored below the skin. The skin controls the body temperature by release of heat and production of sweat.

This book discusses various factors which control the colour, complexion and elasticity of the skin. It indicates the diet beneficial and harmful to the skin. It also suggests measures to improve the colour and complexion of the skin as well as medicines which act as tonic for the skin.

The book describes various skin diseases and the Ayurvedic concept and treatment of these diseases. It also discusses the care that one has take while selecting and using beauty aids. The book also discusses how to take care of the hair and prescribes Ayurvedic treatment for common diseases like dandrufff, lice, etc. It also describes the skin conditions associated with beauty, e.g. acne, baldness, premature graying of hair, wrinkling of skin, etc.

The book lists various groups of Ayurvedic medicines along with their use in skin diseases. The book concludes with a description of various Ayurvedic recipes, their preparation and dosage.

We hope that this book will be useful to skin specialists, beauticians, doctors, vaidyas as well as medical students. It will guide patients with skin diseases and help to prevent skin diseases in healthy individuals.

We pray unto the deity of absolute air (väyudevatâ) to bless all the beings with a healthy skin.
