Roga Nidana is the chief subject that connects physician with patient and then to medicine. Thus without pareeksha and analysis of roga and rog avinischaya chikitsa cannot be administered. Treatment is not that when you see few symptoms and then give drugs which are showing antagonistic features to that of symptoms. The chikitsa begins from understanding prakruthi, doshaavastha, vyadhiavastha, roga rogibala, agni, koshta, satmya and understanding disease process or samprapthi. For this one has to understand roganidana very well.
Do not suddenly jump or hurry for starting a treatment. A minimal mistake in assessment of roga and rogi is sufficient to bring bad prognosis or irreversible damage. Thorough theoretical knowledge, repeated study, continuous practice, regular visit to wards will make any student to be expert in this subject. Thus my humble request to student is that do not read this text just for the sake of passing examination in your curriculum. Use this book to understand samhitas, concepts and patients more. This will surely make your treatment successful. Thus read this text, read original samhitas, hand in hand regularly visit wards. Implement the theoretical knowledge in the practical curriculum too. The basic concepts are to be clearly understood before looking at the applied aspect. The intention of my work is to motivated students to read original and classical text rather than restricting them self or confining to the compiled texts.
Disease diagnosis is a must before any treatment in my system of medicine. The methods of examination, assessment criteria may vary from system to system or may depend on the physician based on his/ her clinical experience. Before that, a scholar or a student must know every theoretical aspects mentioned in the classics, In this regard text book helps as a guideline for every student who wants to study Roga nidana. The volume 2 of Roga Nidana comprises of systemic pathology that deals with etiology, pathogenesis, symptomatology, prognosis and complications of every disease as explained by Brihatrayees. The text also has made an effort to compile and correlate few diseases, its presentation and interpretation in present science so as the readers get to know in what new prospective it could be understood and what modifications can be made in intervention for better prognosis. The chapters are arranged as per present syllabus and the disease are named under individual srotas. I request all the readers to use classical texts to study further in details about the disease and use this text book as guidelines for is interpretation.
