It is a must for every aspirant for Ayurvedic treatment. After going through this book, the patient will understand the doctor better and thus becomes a partner in the curing and healing process, facilitating speedy recovery. Ayurvedic treatment, on the other hand, may appear as a slower process, involving longer periods of treatment and adherence to strict medication and diet regime. This is compensated for by the disease being eliminated at the grass- root level. Thus the results achieved are not only long lasting but also are also astonishing. Hence it is that we are witnessing a noticeable shift to Ayurveda and other Traditional health care systems. In this context the timing of the release of this book is most appropriate.
