Description

Introduction

'Nothing is worse than a familiar enemy' goes a well-known proverb and perhaps nowhere is it more appropriate than in the case of common ailments. While people rush too often and too soon to doctors for diseases like diabetes and angina pectoris, they tend to take more familiar diseases for granted. Take the case of headache, for example. Perhaps all of us are aware of that friendly middle-aged lady in our neighbourhood who gets a headache all too often and who takes a tablet of aspirin all by herself to relieve her headache. Such a practice is perhaps quite acceptable for a couple of occasions but by repeatedly doing it she may be suppressing the 'warning cry' of the body, trying to caution her of some serious disorder. There are a host of other common ailments which one tends to take for granted, yet which could be the early signs warning the sufferer of some grave disorder.

There is a strong case then to know something about these common ailments. An attempt is made in this book to identify a few such common ailments and give some interesting information about them. There is yet another reason why we must know about them. Knowing something about our body and its common ailments is much like knowing our automobile and its common troubles. We may not be able to mend our automobile ourselves, but once we know about its working and its common troubles, we take care of our automobile more intelligently and use it in such a way that it 'falls sick' less often. Not only that, if it does 'fall sick', we can interact with the mechanic more fruitfully and more intelligently, and an unscrupulous mechanic would be hard put to take us for a ride.

Almost the same function is served by knowing some common ailments of our body. These are the ailments which all of us suffer from day in and day out. Once we know more about them, we can ensure that we don't fall prey to them again and again, and if we do fall ill we could at least interact with our family doctor in a more meaningful way. This way we help our doctor by conveying to him more useful information and consequently help ourselves.

It is hoped that by going through the pages of this book we would become more informed about our body and its working in health and diseases. If, besides informing the reader, this book is also able to entertain and amuse the reader, its purpose would have been served.

Back Of Book

1. Are you troubled by allergy or eczema?
2. Do you get a nagging cold every winter and cannot get rid of it?
3. Is your sinusitis so obstinate that it would not go by any treatment?
4. Are you worried about your constipation and would do anything for a cure?
5. Does your child get diarrhoea every now and then?

Common cold, diarrhoea, constipation, etc. are the ailments from which all of us have suffered all too often. Yet, these are the very diseases about which we know so little. Many of us would like to know more about them but do not know whom to ask. Our physicians seem too busy to do the explaining which we would like them to do.

Written by a medical expert, this book explains everything about some of the common ailments. And, even if you have not suffered from these diseases, the book should be a pleasure to read, especially as it is full of amazing and interesting facts.

Dr. Anil Aggrawal obtained his doctorate in forensic medicine from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences before going for further training at the University of Edinburgh. He has been writing articles on health and fitness in various magazines and newspapers for the last fifteen years and has participated in several radio talks. Dr. Aggrawal teaches at the Maulana Azad Medical College, a leading medical institution in Delhi.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
