As we know Cancer is a health hazard of present era, the whole world is worried about it and researches are being carried out intensively globally for tackling this disease.
This chronic and critical disease finds a brief mention in the ancient Ayurvedic literature in the 'Arbud' chapter because this wasn't a very well known disease then. But decades after, some authors have mentioned it as 'Karkatarbud'. The present day Ayurvedic physicians are treating this disease based on the 'Dosh-Dushya theory' by using various herbal, herbo-mineral and animal origin products.
I remember my first critical case of cancer that of Liver in the year 1978 which was brought to me after rejection of further treatment. I accepted the challenge and started treating him. I succeeded in this case which boosted my self confidence.
Thereafter I have treated more than 1000 cases of cancer, where I have succeeded fully or partly through the Ayurvedic treatment that is mentioned here in the book.
I have attended various conferences and seminars, presented papers, also many of my articles have been published in various souvenirs, journals and magazines in this regard. Later on I realized that there is need to have a book on cancer with Ayurvedic concept to impart the knowledge I have gained to today's world.
With this background in my mind I started working on this book along with my Assistant Doctors and have tried to incorporate as many subjects possible related to Ayurvedic science and cancer. I know that this is not the first or the last book on cancer but I have tried to impart my practical knowledge to the greatest extent I can.
I hope this book will be an eye opener for students, teachers and researchers of Ayurveda and Modern science as well.
