Ayurvedic Medicine for Westerners Book Description:

This textbook explains clearly the Ayurvedic understanding of pathology and how to diagnosis the different stages of disease in the body and mind. Based on the functional nature of Ayurvedic Anatomy & Physiology Ayurvedic pathology recognizes several steps before disease as we know it in the West manifests. Hence, a profound understanding of pathology allows Ayurveda to prevent disease before it becomes “disease”. Ayurveda is truly a preventive medicine when understood correctly. This book contains color photos to help students understand diagnosis better. Pulse and tongue diagnosis are clearly explained in a simple manner. There is also a special section on clinical psychology as per the Caraka Samhita. All the classical methods of understanding disease are explained in this textbook which is the result of the authors 27 years of practice.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 well-being supported by nature's 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 manner the two main approaches and many different categories of treatments available in Ayurvedic medicine, the basis of which is lifestyle therapies.“Pathology and Diagnosis in Ayurveda” by Vaidya Atreya Smith is Volume Two in a four volume series of textbooks for Western students of Ayurveda.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Westerners Book Description:

The majority of books on herbal medicine teach students about individual plants and the disorders they help to correct. The problem with this approach is that people end up using the herbs symptomatically. This textbook teaches about real life problems and which herbs, or combination of herbs, could be used to stop the pathology associated with it. This is done by stopping Dosha Vriddhi (Dosha accumulation) in the Mulasthana (primary location), the Dhatus (tissues) and the Srotamsi (channels). If Dosha pathology is removed the disorders disappear. Ayurveda uses this approach in herbal treatments. This textbook on the "Application of Ayurvedic Treatments Throughout Life" begins with conception and ends with treatments for old age. This volume starts off with a short revision of Dravyaguna, then more information on how to use different herbal preparations. This leads to the foundational treatments of the digestive system and metabolic disorders. Next the subjects of pregnancy, embryology, pediatrics, gynecology, menopause, men's health, Rasayana therapies for the elderly and Vajikarana or fertility therapies are explained with treatment protocols. This is followed by a number of disorders according to Dhatu, or location. Finally, there are 21 new herbal monographs that have been used in this volume in the treatment of various disorders. In addition to these monographs there are new formulas scattered throughout the text when and where as needed.

Dravyaguna for Westerners Book Description:

In Ayurveda, the science of herbal medicine is called Dravya Guna Shastra or the “science of the attributes of substances”. Unfortunately, this science has been unavailable to the vast majority of Westerns due to language, terminology and culture. This textbook is a bridge for the Western doctor, herbalist, practitioner, or therapist to the ancient science of herbal medicines in Ayurveda. It is one of three textbooks that form a series on the important subjects of Ayurvedic diagnosis & pathology, Ayurvedic treatments and Ayurvedic medicines.This textbook is the result of 13 years of clinical research and 10 years of teaching experience in Ayurvedic herbal therapies. The textbook includes 115 herbal monographs that explain in detail the herb according to Ayurveda. Additionally there are 45 herbal formulas indicated by disorders – each adjusted for the cause of the disorder according to vata, pitta, or kapha dosha. Each monograph has a color photo of the medicinal plant and space to make personal notes. This textbook is used by a number of schools in Italy, Holland, Switzerland, France and the USA since 2009.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Westerners Book Description:

Anatomy and physiology in Ayurveda are based on the body's function rather than structure. Eventually both are of equal importance. Nevertheless, this fundamental difference is primary in understanding the logic of Ayurvedic medicine as a whole. This textbook is written for the Western student of Ayurveda who lacks the cultural context of India - the context that views the body, and creation in general, functionally. Many different details on Ayurvedic physiology are clearly distinguished from Ayurvedic anatomy in this book. Most books on this subject are either obscure, overly detailed, disorganized or confused. 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 anatomy and physiology. 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. Once these concepts are thoroughly learned the following subjects of pathology, diagnosis and treatments become easy. In this book the Western student of Ayurveda will find a user friendly guide to de-crypt the profound ancient wisdom that is Ayurveda.
