Women's health is the pivot not only for the healthy and happy status for her family, rather to the whole society or event to the nation at large. Though the importance of health care was recognised by the earliest man, and consistent efforts were being made by subsequent generations, yet twentieth century has evidenced maximum cry on this front. To-day the health delivery systems more so in developing countries are at great variance, on one side big hospitals located in palacial buildings, equipped with most modern technology, medicines and trained manpower are catering to the needs of few who can afford and on the other the sizeable chunk of population is left to the mercy of almighty with almost negligible health care facilities provided to them. The paradox is not new it has existed from time immemorial, of course now there is open acceptance of this difference by health planners and various agencies, governmental and non-governmental are pooling their might to cope with this. It is in this attempt that the health planners have recognised the values of traditional system/remedies and have accepted that without exploring this source the solution of health problems will remain in mirage.

Ayurveda, the oldest system of medicine, still serving major part of society in the countries like India, Shri Lanka and Nepal etc. has dealt each and every aspect of health, but the available books are voluminous, specific topics/subjects are scattered in almost whole compendium and the language of original books (Sanskrit) or its translations (Hindi / English)are not intelligible to common health worker or public. It is the need of present society to translate this age old, time-tested knowledge in systematic, simple, intelligible language. The book "woman health care through Ayurveda" by Dr. (Mrs.) MANJARI DWIVEDI is a noble attempt in this direction.
