Description
PREFACE

Ayurved Materia Medica is very rich consisting of material from varied sources. Plant material constitute about 95%, animal product and material consisting about 2-3-% and remaining is from metal, mineral marine sources. Ayurveda believes that all the substances existing in this universe are having medicinal values, only intelligent and proper use is required human being is considered as a miniature replica of Universe, living and non-living things are made up of Panchmahabhutas. Any imbalance in the composition of Panchmahabhutas or functional imbalance - results into manifestation of diseases.

Ayurveda has given more importance to organic material in the treatment strategy as, such material is very close to humen body. Many animal produce and material are used in preparation of madicines and as food items also. Ayurveda strongly believes in non-violence. Hurting any- one is considered a sin and this is the reason Ayurveda believes in using the animal produce without sacrificing the animal.

This book on "Animal Inventory" is unique work of CCRAS, which describes General Information, Habitat and Marphology, Parts Used for Madicinal/Cosmetic Purpose, Medicinal/Cosmetic uses described in different Systems of Medicine and Classical Formulations.

I hope this book will be very much usefull to researchere of ASU system of medicine as well as modern medicine. It is an indispensable piece of literary research and will be a authentic reference source for the use of medical professional as well as scientists and scholars for various disciplines particularly for the sciientists, academicians interested in Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Pharmaceutical Industries.

I appreciate Dr. S. Venugopal Rao, Dr. N. Srikanth for their dedicated efforts and hard work in compiling and editing the manuscript. I am also thankful to Dr. M. M. Padhi, Dr. Sudesh Gaidhani and Dr. A. Mangal for 'their sincere efforts in bringing this edition. I am extremely thankful to the National Bio-resources Development Board, Department of Bio-Technology ,Ministry of Science and Technology, New Delhi for sponsoring the project. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Secretary and Joint Secretary, Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India for their motivation, encouragement and appreciation of the work.
