Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda explores the enduring features of humanity's longest and continually practised systems of medicine. These two indigenous healing arts arising independently in China and India communed and exchanged experience, techniques, and therapeutic substances over the epochs of their development. This book's interesting and valuable comparison provides a pioneer effort in examining side by side two great systems of medicine, studying closely the historical, theoretical and practical relationships. In so doing, it offers these ancient paradigms into the practice of modern healing for a synergistic, inclusive approach.
...This book is a nice comprehensive work of high quality which should interest many students, practitioners as well as research scholars in this field. DR.C.S.SHAH Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda is indeed a valuable contribution to the theory and history
About the Author:

become a licensed Ayurvedic physician. Vimalananda, Svoboda's teacher, set
him first to study Jyotish, and he has since pursued this study under the
direction of various experts, including in particular Mr. Hart de Fouw.
