Ayurveda: The Ultimate Medicine
Ayurveda: The Ultimate Medicine
[hard cover edition]

Dr. S. C. Sharma

This book dissolves the myth that Ayurveda is a supplementary or an alternate medicine suggesting, with evidence, that it is the ultimate in medicine. Ayurveda is one of the most ancient medical systems where the concept of specialisation originated be it in surgery, internal medicine or psychiatry; they all evolved in Ayurveda before anywhere else in the world. This system, also called the mother of medicine, focuses not only on eliminating the diseases but on providing a holistic cure of the patient, propounding his total well-being. It considers the human body as a miniature cosmos and attempts to create a balance between the forces outside and within the body.
