About this Item

This book deals with the important animal products and foods prescribed in Ayurvedic material media. The modern perspective of the respective drugs and foods is also provided. Emphasis on the need of animal products like Kasturi (musk) Puti (civet), Agnijara (amber) etc is laid while expressing the need for careful collection methods without sacrificing any animal. The scientific background for the classification of foods in the ancient Ayurvedic texts is substantiated with the support of modern literature. The nutritive values of these foods are also provided on the basis of available information. This work also deals with the indigenous methods of food processing in ancient India. Various puddings and their role in the management of health and disease are emphasized. Pharmacognostic identification of some important medicinal plants (12 plants) as described in the CCIM syllabus was also included. This will enable the students of Ayurveda to learn about the easier methods of identification of herbs. It may be concluded that this is the first English work on Dravyaguna which is in accordance with the CCIM syllabus. Bookseller Inventory # 60662
