Grouping of Diseases
Charaka emphasized that classification of diseases is not easy as the diseases are many with varying nature. As an easy method he preferred to group them on the basis of location which may shift, causation which is pre-disposing and precipitating and prognosis which tend to change. He had analyzed and discovered treatment solutions to almost all diseases descended in his time. In short, he was an encyclopedia on diseases and their containment.
Despite having passed 2000 years after the existence of Charaka Samhita, it is still a living and spreading medical text due to its vast coverage of internal medicine, comprehensive sketching of clinical details to minute level and dumps of medical management details.
