FOREWORD:

The knowledge of Ayurveda is now accepted throughout the world as a positive health science. The ancient Vaidika traditions cognised by Indian Acharyas offer a wealth of practical knowledge on how to live a healthy and meaningful life. Vaidika wisdom is timeless and unbounded and therefore it is relevant in this modern age.

Ayurvedic medicines are preferred instead of Allopathic medicines as it maintains the natural rhythm of the body on a mental, physical and spiritual level - leaving absolutely no side-effects. Ayurvedic medicine being not harmful, is furthermore not toxic or cruel in resting on animal.

Using Mother Nature's tools - in taking purely plant-based medicines, which are both eco-friendly and bio-friendly, is the most significant aspect of the system.

Different Kalpanas prepared from these herbs act on different systems with different mechanism of action on various diseases.

This book of Bhaishajya Kalpana includes the Good Manufacturing Practices (G.M.P. Rules), latest manufacturing techniques along with the descriptions of modern machinery and methods. The methods of collection and latest methods of taking out plant extracts and preservation of Ayurvedic medicines are explained in a very practical manner.
