Preface

Evolution of disease deals with 1. Various aetiological factors 2. How the aetiological factors bring about changes in the structural and functional units of the body that is vata, pitta and kapha 3. How these molecular changes bring about structural derangement in various tissues and organs 4. How these structural changes derange the function of organs 5. How the deranged function of one organ leads to derangement of other organs that is complications.

Ayurveda describes in detail the various stages of evolution of disease as 1. Chaya that is accumulation of doshas because of action of aetiological factors, 2. Prakopa that is further increase in in the doshas, 3. Prasara that is dissemination of doshas which correspond to the stage of septicemia, viremia or toxaemia, 4. Sthanasanshraya that is localisation of dosha in a particulartissue or organ, 5. Vyakti that is manifestation of disease because of functional derangement, 6. Bheda that is further differentiation into the sub-type of the disease.

Ayurveda emphasises that the physician should not allow the disease to evolve further by recognizing manifestations of the disease in its incubation period and guiding the patient appropriately. It is surprising that even 5,000 years ago, Ayurvedic physician could visualise the derangement at molecular level as the root cause of the disease. Ayurveda has rightly emphasised on the importance of understanding the Evolution of disease (pathogenesis). Unless the physician gets insight into the Evolution of the diseases, he cannot treat the patient appropriately. A physician who does not bother to go to root cause of the disease suppress the symptoms but is unable to eradicate the disease. This book describes in detail the basic principles of pathogenesis which will help the reader to understand the pathogenesis of any symptom or disease.

One can't but appreciate the wisdom of our ancient physicians, when one realises that our understanding of disease process and its evolution has not altered significantly even today, in spite of all the modern research. I am sure that not only Ayurvedic physicians, but students, teachers and research workers of modern medicine also will be benefited by reading this book

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
