Free sample

 Ayurveda, the science of life, holistic
medicine offers a complete solution with medicines, diet and lifestyle.
The radical shift occurred in
defining health encourages the medical fraternity of modern times to look
deeply into empirically evolved ayurvedic techniques for the maintenance of
positive health.
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.

pocket books or practical prescriber available for allopathic medicine in

of vitiation, the status of Dhatu & Srotas), Agni Sthiti and nature of Ama. 

It is
essential to get the practical training from the Guru (Teacher) in order to
become perfect in Ayurvedic diagnosis, as evidenced from the Vagbhata’s

I hope the Vaidyas will
become efficient by practicing the remedies, regime and diet described in this
