Description
PREFACE

Every country has its traditional health care practices. These practices have evolved based on cultutre, philosophy, geographical conditions, flora, and mineral resources. From historical point of view it is evident that plants, metals, minerals and animal products extremely used in alleviating the wide range of disease conditions. History of use of natural products of medicinal value can be traced from remote past.

Ever since dawn of history man has been in pursuit of new substances that could cure illness and promote health and longevity. Ayurveda, one such science that philosophises is not merely treating the illness, but counter balancing the disequilibria that results in disease. It is the traditional system of medicine holds out to the world, the promise of healthy long life.

Ayurveda literally meaning the science of life is a comprehensive system of health care of great antiquity, based on experiential knowledge and grown with perpetual additions. Original dimensions of Ayurveda are in built in the ancient compendia of Indian wisdom called Vedas, which are believed to be documented around 6000 years back. Rigveda and Atharvaveda are replete with information on health and maladies and their management with natural modes and modalities. The knowledge expanded further will laying down of fundamentals and concepts of Ayurveda and systematization in classical texts like Charak Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Astang Sangrah.

India, endowed with rich diversity in its flora and fauna is considered to be one of the top twelve mega-diversity countries of the world. Being a subcontinent, it encompasses 15-different agro-climatic zones, 10 vegetarian zones, 25 biotic provinces and 426 biomes. Almost all the shades of climates, from the hottest Thar desert to arctic environment in Himalaya, with intermediate gradations, occur in India. The nature of diversity in environmental regimes and its position at the tri-junction of African, Eurasian and Oriental biotas have enabled India to harbour over 125,000 species of living organisms, constituting about 5% of known species of the world. India probably harbors additional 400,000 living species, especially of the microorganisms, to be discovered and documented in the near future. This country has very rich elements of endemics in its flora. It has been estimated that about 35% of the higher plant flora is endemic to India. Out of the 18 hot spots of biodiversity identified in the world, India has two hot spots located in the eastern Himalaya and Western Ghats containing, 3,500 and 1600 endemic species of higher plants respectively. About 65% of population in India is reported to use Ayurveda and medicinal plants to help meet their primary health care needs and the safety of this vibrant tradition is attributed to time tested use and textual reference. Rasayana therapy is a specialized branch of clinical medicine in Ayurveda meant for slowing the effect of ageing and to improve intelligence, memory, complexion and sensory and motor functions. Numerous single and compound Rasayana drugs possessing diversified actions like immune-enhancement, free-radical scavenging, adaptogenic or anti-stress and nutritive effects are described in Ayurveda literature for their use in health promotion and management of diseases with improvement in the quality oflife. Many classical preparations are in routein practices in India and outside, like famous Chavanaprasha, Aswagandha Chuma etc.,

A vast number of indigenous plant drugs coupled with innumerable claims of their varied uses in alleviating wide range of Geriatric problems calls for scientific validation for their attributes and principles. The present compendium comprises of information on about thirty-five Ayurveda and Siddha medicinal plants used in Geriatric Care, common formulations, and a profile of Evidence based Research on Safety and Clinical efficacy.
