The Ayurvedeeya Itihasa is the First year subject of B.A.M.S. The First year BAMS students are admitted in to BAMS Course from Intermediate with Convent Education. They need the English version in a systematic order and as per syllabus. This book is written in simple English, as per syllabus hence it is helpful not only for students but also for Teachers.
