Ayurveda emphasizes on prevention rather than cure and for this purpose, Achar Rasayan has been described like other preventive health measures, for example, Ritucharya, Swasthwritta, etc. Physical, mental, social, and spiritual aspects of our life have been explained in Achar Rasayan providing a ho-listic approach to a person and thereafter, formation of a peaceful and developed society. Unlike the dichotomous nature of modern medicine, Ayurveda always follows a holistic approach. Preventive and social medicine, which is presently known as commu-nity medicine is a specialized branch of modern medicine. The WHO also emphasizes to promote this branch because, this is con-cerned with the whole society, not just with a person. The utility of Achar Rasayan is increased in the present society suffering from sex and violence, greed and anger, etc.
