RASA-PANCHAKA: (Ayurvedic Principles of Drug-Action)
RASA-PANCHAKA: (Ayurvedic Principles of Drug-Action)
Description
Foreword:

Despite rapid advancing theories in modern pharmacology; much remains to be said about Drug versus Disease, pharmacokinestics, bio-transformation, selective affinity of drugs to a particular cell or system and so on. Ayurvedic pharmacological principles offer new fields of research and re-orient the basis of drug-therapy.

There is much similarity in the Ayurvedic and modern pharmacology. Various factors influence the drug-action at the molecular level and even though the exact mechanism of drug-action is not yet fully known to modern pharmacology, they explain it one the basis of ionisation, polarity, inter atomic distances, stearic structure and isomerism, which fairly correspond to Rasa, Vipaka, Guna, Veerya and Prabhava, respectively.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
