At the preliminary level of many diseases, one can cure them by following few suggestions given in the book. At the disease level, along with treatment, it suggests the management of the disease with medicine, food, rest and other paraphernalia associated with health care. The volumes remind us that we can treat many of our diseases ourselves or at least prevent their severeness if we are aware of the available herbal remedies. These can do wonders in our daily life, both economically and healthwise.
The remedies given in these volumes are specially targeted at the present-day fast-moving lifestyle, which is loaded with stress and strain, intake of non-nutritious food/junk food, and lack of exercise. This phenomenon leads to imbalance in the doshas of the body and disturbs its harmony or biorhythm, paving the way for many diseases, or leading to severity or intensity of the disease if one is already sick.
