9780128012826: Integrative Approaches for Health: Biomedical Research, Ayurveda and Yoga

Despite spectacular advances, modern medicine faces formidable global challenges in several key areas―notably the persistence of major killer diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, leprosy, and newer threats including HIV/AIDS, resistant infections, and Ebola. As such, modern medicine has not led to a significant decrease in chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, and other degenerative and autoimmune diseases. The authors believe that modern medicine needs to experience a paradigm shift, an integration of traditions―in particular from the ancient systems like Ayurveda and Yoga.

Integrative Approaches for Health: Biomedical Research, Ayurveda and Yoga brings together the basic principles of interdisciplinary systems approach for an evolving construct of future medicine. Such an approach is already emerging at the cutting edge of current research in omics, bioinformatics, computational and systems biology. Several leading institutions of medicine have adopted Yoga and complementary medicine to widen their reach, and deepen effectiveness in therapeutic practices. The amalgam of modern medicine, with its strengths in scientific rigor, blended with the basic principles of life drawn from Ayurveda and Yoga might evolve into a medicine of tomorrow. Integrative approaches are no longer alternative, perhaps taking these approaches is the only possible way to heal our sick planet. This book introduces important trends and tools for biomedical researchers and physicians alike, to innovate the practice of medicine for the better.

  • Contains a harmonious confluence of ancient and modern concepts, historical perspectives, philosophical underpinnings, and a relevant review of literature supported by worldwide case studies.
  • Provides a critical analysis of ancient wisdom, pointing to potential areas for future research, which provide food for thought for public debate on integrative health care for the twenty-first century.
  • Explains Ayurveda knowledge, and its relevance to drug discovery, nutrition, genomics, epigenetics, regenerative biology, longevity and personalized medicine.
  • Shares Yoga knowledge insights, and explains its relevance to body–mind complex relationships, psychology, neurobiology, immunoendocrinology, bioenergetics, consciousness, and cognitive sciences.

Review:

"...offers a long-awaited, revolutionary blend of holistic practice and biomedical science... completely unique in its scope, content, depth, and approach, and cannot be compared to other books. Score: 94 - 4 Stars"--Doody's, Integrative Approaches for Health

"...an extremely timely publication...It covers an incredible breadth and depth of issues...a good resource for all inquisitive readers who are interested in integrative medicine and health."--Current Science, Integrative Approaches for Health

"...can be read and used along the same lines as a valid manual, not only by those who work in the field and wish to clarify concepts which are frequently misinterpreted in the Western world but also by those not expert... we recommend one to read it."--J-AIM, Integrative Approaches for Health

"...serves an important point of drawing attention to the negative side of contemporary health care systems and practices and suggests the importance of integrating the best of modern and “ancient wisdoms."--Proceedings of Indian National Science Academy, Integrative Approaches for Health

"The subject is well researched, meticulously documented, discussed thoroughly from historic perspective, current opportunities and challenges, as well as futuristic possibilities. The monograph should become an integral part of medical education in countries like India, for students of both allopathic as well AYUSH systems " - Gundu H.R. Rao PhD

"Integrative Approaches for Health by Patwardhan et al brings for the first time traditional systems of medicine like Ayurveda within the framework of Integrative Medicine in an engaging scholarly analysis that is comprehensive and incisive." - Ram Manohar P, MD (Ay)

"The book brings together the basic principles of interdisciplinary systems approach for an evolving construct of future medicine." - The Times of India

"Authors of this book, as noted in the authors’introduction, “represent the three generations of scientific progress and “bring a unique blend of domain expertise in each of the three components ofthis book Biomedical Research, Ayurveda and Yoga . - S. C. Lakhotia, Cytogenetics Laboratory, Department of Zoology

"I look this [Integrative Approaches for Health – Biomedical Research Ayurveda and Yoga] as a treasure and as a reference book as not only it covers India, but also touches upon many other countries in the process which also gives equal opportunity for us to understand that the evolution of modern medicine has such a strong base with the traditional wisdom that these countries in the Asian region and partially in the west Asian region has." - Dr.V. Prakash 

"... a book which can be read and used along the same lines as a valid manual, not only by those who work in the field and wish to clarify concepts which are frequently misinterpreted in the Western world but also by those not expert but who wish to understand clearly and effectively the true meaning of Ayurveda and Yoga and potential that both of these offer if implemented in an interactive manner in national health systems; a difficult, but already necessary challenge. We can only conclude, therefore, by paraphrasing a quotation used by Doctors and Patwardhan et al., ‘The totality of a book is certainly more than a review of it’ and it is for this reason that we recommend one to read it." - Paolo Roberti di Sarsina, Charity for Person Centered Medicine-Moral Entity

"...an important step in the direction of informed integrative healthcare as it outlines knowledge and perspectives that can help shape strategies for disruptive innovation and leap frogging into 21st century healthcare."--Current Science,Integrative Approaches for Health
