Commentaries and Additional Information:

Dr. Pati is an authority on Ayurvedic medicine. He says Ayurveda has become one of the most important natural remedies among westerners, especially among Americans where people believe in natural organic and health foods.

Ayurvedic medicine works very well, when it is in standardized extract form. When the active ingredients of an herb are extracted in high concentrations and administered in capsules or tablets and measured in milligrams, it works very well and quick. In the earlier days, the activity of herbal products, preparations and dispensing remained mainly upon the responsibility of a practitioner and was on a one to one relationship between physicians and his patients. It was a matter of sacred trust. However, with the socio economical changes in modern times, the technological advances, commercial factors, consumer preferences, changing lifestyles, etc. all influenced the way Ayurvedic drugs are being manufactured, marketed, distributed in USA, Europe and Australia , Canada and other western countries.

Dr. Pati says, there are hundreds of Ayurvedic products, from tablets, capsules, tinctures, to perfumes, essences, and aroma-therapy products. Some of them are being manufactured in the USA widely available in Health food stores, and pharmacies in America. Many western people do not know which Ayurvedic herbal remedies originated from India. We know it from their respective scientific and botanical names. There are approximately 100,000 Health Food stores in the U.S.A. alone and 20% herbal products in health food stores are from India whereas 40% from China. Among the popular products are: Gugul for cholesterol,Ggymnema (Gurmar) for blood sugar, Valerian for insomnia, Boswellia for arthritis, Withania (Ashwagandha) as an adaptogen, Psyllium as a mild laxative and many others. Nutritional supplement Industries in the USA was a US$ 25 billion dollar business during 2006.

Recently, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA has recommended introducing Ayurvedic Pharmacology in their regular medical curriculum. The U.S. Government is already negotiating deals with the Indian Government and universities in India. A large number of Ayurvedic research scholars and professors will be coming to major U.S. Universities from India. At present more than 1000 highly qualified Ayuredic physicians are already in U.S.A. who came from BHU and other Universities in India and more will be coming during upcoming years. Many Ayurvedic doctors are teaching in US-based Universities and doing research in pharmaceutical and health food companies. <

Dr. Pati, continues to promote Ayurveda through his publications and websites. Dr. Pati says, we need our strength in technical expertise in the field of medicinal plants, biotechnology, phytochemistry, pharmacology, pharmaceutics, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, pathology and clinical research in order to do advance research and development in Ayurvedic medicine. Furthermore, he approaches Ayurvedic students, professors, physicians and researchers to work together for advancement in research on Ayurvedic medicine, the present and future of natural health care system. Ayurvedic medicine is not only used for a cure, but it is a preventive health care science. The Orissa Government must aware of the fact that it is a medical science and plant based nutrients are regarded as a big emerging bio-industry which has domestic and export markets.
