Description
About the Book

This book is about how I perceived Ayurveda. The aim is to explain Ayurveda with an integrated perspective. As a subject of health, it should not be a masquerade forever. A candid presentation is the recent need of Ayurveda. The book is for the new generation who learn Ayurveda and is about how it should be looked at in the modem period. It is explained with the support of all the philosophies on which Ayurveda is based. The importance of mind body concept and the need of Photochemistry in Ayurveda syllabus also is emphasized.

About the Author

Dr. K A Latheef is a senior Ayurvedic practitioner since 1986. He had graduated both in Botany and Ayurveda from Farook College, and Vaidyaratnam P. S Warier Ayurveda College, Kottakkal respectively, under the University of Calicut, Kerala.

Distasting the orthodox philosophical explanation of health and disease in Ayurveda he started learning it analytically. According to him the 5000 years old concepts in a medical syllabus deprived the rights of the so far scientifically educated students to know the developing health science. He debated on the need of exploring Ayurveda applying contemporary knowledge.

This book is a reflection of those experiences.

Preface

Attuned to the principles of M other Nature, Ayurveda is the 'Science of Health', fully portrayed by philosophy. One who wants to understand this science has no way than understanding those philosophies. Philosophy is the pursuit of wisdom; it is the 'love of wisdom'. The philosophies on which Ayurveda is based are briefed in the following chapters.

Ayurveda waned and perhaps became stagnant in medieval and British Periods. Social stigma attached to blood, dead body or dissection among higher cast members played a major role for this. Its follower's constraints to come out of the conservative philosophies to the updated modem views were another reason. It is important to note that hypothesis and theories are never absolutely proven. A theory is a set of propositions and concepts that provides a reliable, systemic, and rigorous account of an aspect of nature. If a hypothesis continues to survive a testing, it may be accepted as a valid theory.

A science cannot prevail with the "if... and then" reasoning. In a scientific research the hypothesis is falsified and deducted if it is not tested true after the experiments or through the reliable information. If the hypothesis passes the test, it is subjected to more severe testing. The procedure often is made more efficient by constructing and testing alternative hypothesis and refining the hypothesis that survives the testing.

In the modern world Ayurveda had come to the front line. But labels in the contemporary lexicon, such as "mind-body" and "holistic," have connotations of their own and further fail the test of descriptive accuracy.

Ayurvedic students learn their healing 'Science' through the Philosophies, mostly embellished in Sloga. In this book I took a strenuous effort to explain Ayurveda using modern scientific terminologies. I regret; it would never have the charm of the real poetic narration of t he texts. Hope the students would accept it.

According to Louis Pasteur "Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is a torch which illuminates the world". Maharshi Charaka emphasi2ed the importance of updating knowledge to practice medicine.
