Description

Ayurveda, the science of life, is the extraordinary natural healing tradition of India, going back over five thousand years. It is closely connected with the profound yoga and meditation paths of the region, emphasizing consciousness as the foundation of health and well-being. Ayurveda is a powerful system of mind-body medicine covering all aspects of physical, psychological and spiritual healing. It teaches us the language of nature so that we can take control of our won karma. It unlocks the secret healing powers of nature, transmitting the very wisdom of the life force (prana).

Ayurveda, Nature's Medicine contains a full description of Ayurveda on all levels from diet and herbs to yoga and meditation, explaining both Ayurvedic diagnostic and treatment methods. It covers all the material fund in two-year Ayurvedic programs in India for foreign students. Notably, it explains key Ayurvedic life-style recommendations for diet, exercise and sexuality, outlining daily and seasonal regimens for optimal health and vitality. The Book is an important addition to any Ayurvedic library and is excellent reading for anyone interested in the eastern roots of mind body medicine. It is perhaps the best available textbook on Ayurveda for the serious student.
