About the Book:

Materia Medica, literarily means medical material. A branch of Ayurveda, Hindu materia medica fell into disuse with the wide popularity of European medicine in India. Chandra Chakraberty an authority of Ayurveda, and well-versed in European medical science undertakes a comparative study of Hindu medicine, and proves that various substances which are used in Hindu medicine have greater efficacy; and hence, more medical value in the treatment of diseases than European medicine.<-p>

A majority of the indigenous drugs prescribed in Hindu medical works are excellent therapeutic agents, because a drug used in its native fresh state has more virtue than the European drug.<-p>

In this well-researched book the author provides, arranged alphabetically, a list of drugs used in Hindu medicine and describes their medical value together with their European and Hindu names. The author has described more than 190 genera and 800 species.<-p>

Needless to say, Chandra Chakraberty`s book will be of invaluable help to the Indian botanists, herbists, druggists and medical practitioners. Its reprint will therefore be a very welcome addition to the small number of Ayurveda books in English.<-p>

Comparative Hindu Materia Medica, by Chandra Chakraberty
