Prologue

The Indian subcontinent abounds as it were in a variety and diversity of health traditions. We have with us what is perhaps the longest unbroken health tradition which has not only a stream of practitioners but also a textual and theoretical backing. These knowledge systems didnít limit themselves in fulfilling the needs of primary health care alone but also ventured in specialised areas such as Netra (Ophthalmology) Visha (Toxicology) Marma (Orthopaedics)* One such popular but little known area is that of Bone setting.

(Here author confess that the marma cannot be restricted to orthopaedics alone as certain even neurological illness could be addressed through this)

Message of Ayurveda

Verily, there is no limit to the scope of the science of life. Therefore one must always be alert and receptive. Knowledge, even if it comes from rivals must be accepted with a free mind. In fact the whole world is a teacher for the wise and an enemy to the foolish
