Note

While some people do not except the above definitions due to private agendas they have been approved by a number of educators and university professors in India and Europe. The above definitions follow the guidelines indicated in Caraka Samhita with the additional of the middle level of “practitioner / therapist” which is a result of our modern medicine avoiding the reality that people need to be addressed at a human level for more than 10 or 15 minutes.
