About the Book

The book presents a vivid account of Rejuvenative health care in Ayurveda, with a special reference to the Carakasanthita; the oldest available text on the science of life.

Ayurveda is traditionally regarded as an Llpaveda of the Atharvaveda. Ayurveda does not only deal with therapeutics, but it spells out the healthy and unhealthy aspects of the entire human personality.

"Yuktaharavihara" constitutes the fundamental principle par excellence of Ayurvedic health care. Various details regarding human diets and regimens are, accordingly spelt out. Rasciyana (Rejuvenation) is nothing but the adoption of therapeutic and other devices aimed at the restoration of (Minus to their natural equilibrious state. Mere administration of a prescribed medicine is not enough. Psychological, spiritual, environmental, seasonal and even astrological factors play an important role there.

Proper identification of plants with their proper habitat and proper processing is considered to be the primary desideratum of rejuvenation therapy.

Preface

I have great pleasure in presenting this humble study of mine to the esteemed readers interested in the indetrienous traditions of health care.

But for the magnanimous generosity of Prof. Pramod Kumar Shrivastava, Head, Cancer Im-munology Programme, Department of Biological Sciences, Fordham University, New York and the resultant financial assistance from the same university, it would not have been possible for me to live in solitude and complete the work. Professor Emeritus Alex Wayman and Professor Theodore Riccardi of Columbia University were immensely helpful by providing library and other academic and physical facilities. Mrs. Hideko Wayman and Ms. Keiko Nakayama, a promising young acupuncturist inspired me to correlate the present study with other Asiatic traditions of health care. I have no words to express my deepest sense of gratitude to all of them.

I am also grateful to Dharam Hinduja Center of Indic Research, Columbia University including Dr. Mary McGee, Dr. Gary Tubb, Dr. Kenneth Zysk and Dr. Nancy Braxton for providing me with a forum to interact with distinguished scholars of New York, on the various aspects of Rejuvenative health care.

M/S Pratibha Prakashan and its proprietor Dr. Radhey Shyam Shukla deserve all my best wishes and thanks for bringing out this study so speedily and so well.
