Ayurveda was side lined in the beginning of twentieth century due to the popularity and easy access to modern healthcare facilities as well as lack of enough promptness to popularize traditional health care systems. Sri C.Krishnan Vaidyan Panavally tried to make Ayurveda more popular and practical based on the principles of classical text books, through his clinical practices and books. One such notable work by the author is Vastipradeepam, a practical handbook, written in Malayalam published by C K Raghavan Vaidyan, CKV hospital, Panavally, who is the son of author. First edition of the book was published in 1933 and the second edition was published in the year 1988. This book contains a total of 109 pages and priced at Rs 100.
