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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
