Ayurveda: The Science of Self Healing - A Practical Guide
By Dr. Vassant Lad
This book offers a basic understanding of Ayurveda/holistic healing, the human body, and why we get disease. It was an easy manual to understand for such an esoteric subject.
The text explains:
- The history, philosophy and basic principles of Ayurveda
- Diagnostic techniques, treatment and diet
- Medical usage of kitchen herbs and spices, first aid, and food antidotes.
I would recommend this book to people with little knowledge of Ayurvedic practices; it is a very good introduction. If you want to learn about Ayurveda, this is a good read to start with.
There is much more to good health than eating natural foods and exercising. You need to learn which foods, herbs and exercises are best for your specific being, and Ayurveda provides this information and much more. This book has plenty of diagrams, charts, and tables to help visualize and clarify the greatly illustrated text. This book acts as a great introduction to the basics of Ayurvedic healing through food.
