Caption: Ayurvedic textbooks. Several textbooks on traditional Indian medicine (known as Ayurvedism). Most of the books are written in Sanskrit, the Hindu text, although some have English translation. Ayurvedism dates back to about 1500 BC and is based on empirical observations of diseases and their treatments. This is in contrast to the Chinese medical tradition which is based on philosophy. Ayurvedic treatments are usually herbal remedies for disease and illness, although the use of surgical techniques has been noted in the past. Herbal remedies are produced using parts of various plants in the form of herbal oils and preparations. Photographed in Bombay, India.
