This book provides in-depth knowledge of skin dis- eases and its treatment through ayurvedic and herbal medi- cines. The important aspect of this book is that it takes care to give detail description of the herbs available in India and western countries. Hence the readers in India and western countries will find this book interesting and valuable in curing the problems of skin diseases. More than 40 herbs are used in this book on the basis of their therapeutic value. It also in- cludes yoga therapies that are relevant in skin diseases. It is written in simple language avoiding as far as possible difficult terms. This book is divided into four parts.

Part-I includes brief description of anatomy of skin and its diseases with their causes, symptoms, investigations and management.

Part-II focuses different types of ayurvedic and herbal medicine in skin diseases.

Part-III comprises special reference on yoga therapies such as yogasanas and pranayama that are useful in skin re- lated problems.

Part-IV includes glossary of some medical terms used in writing the book, an index, and a list of herbs with their botanical, English and Indian names.

If this book helps any physician in the treatment of skin problems of a single patient, I will feel that my effort put in the preparation of this book is amply rewarded.



In rural India, there is a great dearth of hospitals, dis- pensaries and health centers. The cost of conventional or al- lopathy drugs are increasing day by day and sometimes be- yond the reach of poor people which constitute the majority of our population. The greatest advantage about allopathy lies on its ongoing research in respect of improvement upon the already existing medicines, and introduction of new medi- cines in which alternative medicine lags behind. Allopathy has risen to present heights because it is backed by enormous financial assistance from the states and voluntary organization and countless individuals. These advantages were denied to other systems and this is the leading factor that compelled the alternative or complementary systems of medicines to adopt a low profile. Certain therapies were confined to specific areas, tribes or even selected homes. As a result the benefits of alternative medicines could not reach the vast majority of people. However no one can deny the importance of conven- tional drugs and surgery in the treatment of life threatening disorders. But it is also a known fact that in some cases con- ventional drugs does not cure the diseases rather than make the symptoms of the disease more complicated. On the other hand, alternative medicines fail to achieve the task of curing problems in certain cases. Hence a holistic or rational ap- proach is requited to make the people free from diseases and lessen their sufferings. Conventional and complementary practitioners need to exchange ideas and cooperate to com- bine the best drugs, herbs and other treatment approaches to improve the well being of their patients. Integration is the key to the best possible health care for the future.

The author strongly believes in integrative medicine whereby a combination of conventional and alternative medi- cine work wonders in controlling and curing any type of dis- ease.
