There are not much valuable literature available in clinical medical practice in Ayurveda. Thoseavailable, are written by physicians who know theory and having good clinical practice. To my dismay, I find that communication and patient interaction is not still taught in Ayurvedic colleges. Even now, there is no organized help in the area of ayurvedic education and training. There is a deficiency in Ayurvedic curriculum and in my view this is the cause for clinical Ayurvedic stress. There is a definite deficiency, which the population suffers in seeking the medical help. This is also a cause for poor clinical image. There are more than 300 Ayurvedic colleges in the country today. Every year more than thousand Ayurvedic graduates add to the already existing Ayurvedic community. What a student expects from the hospital is not taught nowadays.
Clinical neurology is an art. I can tell, clinical neurology is equal to basic anatomy plus Mulasiddanta plus Yukti. It is like mathematics. Reading a sloka of Pakshagata may not help you to treat it. We know that you have to do sneha, sveda, sodhana, virecana in pakshagata. Everybody can chant this sloka. But in management so many things we have to learn. How can you learn? You should be able to see cases (at least a few) acute and chronic cases, and you should sit with a master, who can teach all these things. Even in brain there is vata area, pitta area and kaphaarea. Frontal cortex is a vata area. Occipital cortex is a pitta area. Temporoparietal is the area ofkapha. This is not textual, but experience. You cannot randomly do the same treatment for everybody. You cannot start with udvartanam and finish with lasuna rasayanam in all the cases. This work is an anastamoses between professionals and students. You have to conduct more research in some cases as I have done a few. In some areas we have done a lot. It is very difficult to use modern research methodology in Ayurvedic practice, because we are going on changing the medicines based on avasta. I accept that there are a few lapses which produce sleepless nights in clinical practice also. What I have not seen in my clinical career during curriculum I will miss. I have to work a lot to correct this mistake and grow clinically. Many people think,using knee hammer is modern medicine. I tried my level best to convey that knee hammer is an instrument. They don't believe it. Even in the reflexes you are able to see vata pitta kapha. To see vata pitta kapha in natural and in ill health is a vision. It is a beautiful clinical vision.
