The recent WHO report says that 70% of the world population is using herbal medicines for their primary health care. In last decade the use of herbal medicines increased tremendously.Many books have been written on Ayurveda medicine but most of them for health professionals. There are few books which addresses the primary health care needs of layman. To fulfill this need, I wrote this book, containing simple and effective home remedies which are available in the local market and online stores. These home remedies have been practiced since more than 2000 years. I hope the readers will satisfy and will get perfect health by adopting the remedies, regime and diet described in this book.
Safe and effective prescribing is a basis of proper patient care. For prescribing Panchakarma treatment the beginners face lot of trouble especially specific slection of therapy and formulations for specific stage of disease. In order to fulfill this lacuna we have undertaken this task.
I hope the Vaidyas will become efficient by applying the therapies and formulations described in this book after accurate diagnosis of disease, its type, stage and examining Dashavidha, Ekadasha and Ashtavidha Pareeksha.
