Although its approach is holistic, its theories are logical and succinct. This book tries to introduce the lay reader to the basic principles of an ancient Indian science whose aim is to keep the body healthy in order to bring tranquility to the mind and satisfy the spirit by prescribing medicines which always originate in nature.
