'Amruth' literally means 'elixir of life'. It is also a Sanskrit synonym for Tinospora cordifolia, a wonder plant known for its rejuvenating properties.
Amruth is a magazine that seeks to address contemporary health care needs using traditional methods of healing. It seeks to tap India's rich native medical heritage - this is in consonance with the current global interest in alternative and complementary medicine. Articles in Amruth typically profile the indigenous systems (particularly Ayurveda, and diverse rural practices) as they attempt to help patients battle their ailments in today's stressful work environment. Even allopathic doctors have acknowledged the important role that these alternative systems play - especially in areas like diabetes, peptic ulcers, reproductive health including infertility and contraceptives, mental health, preventive cardiology,hypertension and obesity. Amruth thus hopes to play a pivotal rule in bringing back the wisdom of the ancients into modern life. Amruth also occasionally addresses the issues relating to the conservation of these medicinal plants -for without these resources there would be no heritage.
