Every postgraduate student in homoeopathy irrespective of the subject has to study man in Health & Man in disease during the first one and half of their training programme.

So far there was no specific  literature on the topic available and this book and this book will be very much useful for postgraduate students in homeopathy India.

This work is based on CCH approved syllabus for post-graduation in homoeopathy and it includes understanding of the healthy state of the man extending to cover biochemistry, biophysics, psychology in the light of doctrine of homeopathic  principles.

Postgraduate students will get outmost advantage of this book because of two reason – firstly CCH syllabus itself not precise, secondly author had successfully incorporated homeopathic principles  with the topic – that was an Herculean task to many  PG scholars.

The author believes that the concept of man in health not healthy man is very vital and primary – and the concept of man in disease is secondary,  more over the knowledge of man in health enrich the man in disease.
