Cleetus, Burton. Review of Hereditary Physicians of Kerala: Traditional Medicine and Ayurveda in Modern India, by Indudharan Menon. Asian Medicine 15, no. 2 (February 2021): 342–44.
Excerpt: Menon interviewed many vaidyans belonging to the prominent vaidya families and has presented their views on a medical domain which is often unwritten and not found in the mainstream historical writings of the region.
After an introduction, four chapters follow on the background, on the contexts, on folk healing, poison therapy, and Muslim Ayurvedic lineages, and lastly on the Ashtavaidya physicians of Malabar.
