Ayurveda is a science of life, therefore it is the science, by the knowledge of which life may be prolonged. It is human nature to aspire for longevity and this desire is found practically among all the peoples of the world. Accordingly if longevity is desired, there must be a system of rejuvenation for one who keeps on remaining young. Rasayana therapy has been described for this person in Ayurveda as a systematic and scientific medical discipline and great results were claimed by this therapy.

There are present 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, which together offer more than 50 health sciences degree programs. But as the Society's membership is shrinking and the financial risks involved in sponsoring health sciences education are rising, the question arises whether the Society should continue to sponsor health sciences degree programs. In fact, at least eight Jesuit health sciences schools have already closed their doors.

Medycyna Nowozytna: Studia Nad Historia Medycyny

The need for support in case of illness or poverty has probably existed ever since. In ancient times this need was indicated by means of a mythical Aesculapius staff. The importance of charity toward one's neighbors was already emphasized by Hippocrates, also in his wording of the medical oath. In those times, however, rationalism determined actual approach towards the sick or unfortunate, and such concepts as "charitas" or "misericordia" were unfamiliar in the contemporary Greece and Rome.

This is a report of a prescription book which Munetomo Murayama, a medical doctor attached to the Date Watari Feudal Clan, inherited from his ancestors and handed on to his descendants. It is now preserved in the Date Museum in Date, Hokkaido, Japan, and the records there show that it was donated by a descendant of Dr. Murayama. The prescription book is unique in its detailed descriptions that are different from traditional medicine. It describes specific illnesses and the medications that were used in their treatment.
