A WORD BY THE PUBLISHER

     Gandhiji wrote these chapters while he was confined in the Aga Khan Palace at Poona during 1942'-44. As the manuscript indicates he began to pen them on 27-8-1942 and completed them on 18-12-1942. To him the subject was so important that he hesitated to release them at once, and took time to go through them again and again till the treatment was to his full satisfaction. He intended to correct these chapters if his ever-growing experience so dictated. The original was written in Gujarati and Gandhiji got it translated into Hindustani and English by Dr. Sushila Nayar under his own guidance. He also went through both the translations to give them the final touches.

    The reader can therefore take the translation as Gandhiji's own rendering of what he wished to convery to his people and to the world on the vital question of health. To him the study of this question was part of the service of God and His creation which was his mission.
