Kayachikitsa or internal medicine is a subject, which has attached attention of all those who are eager to learn Ayurveda. Physicians of other medicines, students and common people all want to know more about this subject as it deals with description of various diseases and its treatment. The subject is very vast and it is practically difficult to cover the entire matter in one book.
However this book has been written more in the interest of the students of Final Year of Ayurveda. The syllabus of Kayachikitsa for Final B.A.M.S. examination has been divided in 4 papers. In this book I have covered first three papers in detail. The fourth paper deals with Panchakarma and we intend to publish seperate book for this paper.
I have also given due consideration for the common readers who are interested in this important subject. The book deals with basic principles of Kayachikitsa, description of all important diseases and their treatment.
The treatment has been described in detail and proper care has been taken to include all important herbs, decoctions, avalehas, ghrutas and readily available herbo-mineral combinations. Totally more than 1000 formulations and their effect on various doshas, dhatus and diseases have been described.
I am a sure student of Final B.A.M.S. as well as the scientists, physicians and common people who are interested in this subject will find this book useful.
