Based on the ancient Indian healing tradition of Ayurveda, dating back thousands of years, The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies offers natural alternatives to conventional medicines and treatments for common ailments and chronic problems, giving effective strategies tailored to your personal needs with practical advice and easy-to-follow instructions.
A leading authority in this field, Dr. Vasant Lad explains why certain imbalances often result in illness and shows you how to restore your body to natural order.
He explains the principles behind the science of Ayurveda, exploring the physical and psychological characteristics of each of the three doshas, or mind-body types - vata, pitta, and kapha. Once you have determined which type or combination of types you are, Dr. Lad helps you to begin your journey to the ultimate "state of balance" and well-being.
You'll learn which traditional Ayurvedic remedies--herbal teas and formulas, essential oils, meditation, yoga--offer relief from a variety of conditions, such as cold and flu symptoms, headaches, toothaches, sore throats, high cholesterol, vision problems, anxiety, and depression. Dr. Lad also shows you how to use diet and specific Ayurvedic techniques to prevent future illness and to promote body consciousness and healthy living.
The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies enables us all to experience the benefits of Ayurveda's healing properties that have been refined over thousands of years. All of the herbs, foods, and oils Dr. Lad recommends can be found in local health food stores or through mail-order catalogs. Complete with an extensive glossary and resource list, this is the definitive guide to natural, safe, and effective remedies, everyday keys to a lifetime of vitality and well-being.
Dr. Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic physician and professor, is one of the world's foremost experts in Ayurveda, and published widely on the subject. He is director of The Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, NM, which he founded in 1984.
