Clinical Protocols & Treatments in Ayurveda (Vol 3)

Ayurveda is a beautifully complete system of traditional medicine. It does not rely on others systems, modern or ancient, to understand treatment protocols or clinical treatments. Nor does it rely on modern science for therapeutics in general.

This textbook explains clearly the Ayurvedic understanding of treatment as per the individual vs the disorder. Whereas Volume 2 established the protocols for Pathology and Diagnosis, this Volume 3 focuses on treatment protocols for different individuals and the way they manifest disease as Dosha imbalance.

Perhaps the most important aspect of Ayurveda today is the rich variety of therapeutic approaches integrated in the system. Therapeutics in Ayurveda is not a hodgepodge of different therapies, rather it is a comprehensive vision of health and wellbeing supported by natures abundant wealth of therapeutic substances. The fundamental vision of therapeutics is based on the functional vision of Ayurveda. This textbook explains in a clear, linear manor the main approaches and different categories of treatments available in Ayurvedic medicine, the basis of which is lifestyle and nutritional therapies.

This textbook also classifies all common foods as per Ayurveda with detailed information on each food and how it effects the Doshas. Dietary rules for eating are clearly explained in detail for the practitioner or student of Ayurveda. Menu planning and how to use diet to cure disorders is also explained. Anti-ama (anti-toxin) diet is also explained and the rules on to use this kind of diet safely is outlined; fasting is also explained with rules as per Prakriti or Vikriti type of person.

The goal of this textbook is to help students and practitioners of Ayurveda to better grasp the functional vision of Ayurveda through a logical, liner presentation of clinical protocols and treatment options. The author of this textbook is a practitioner since 1987 and teaching since 1994. This unique combination allows the author, Vaidya Atreya Smith, to clearly explain the basic principles of Ayurveda.
