Overview

Ayurveda is a holistic, integrated health system that originated in India over 6,000 years ago. It has gained great prominence and interest in the west thanks to the work of best-selling Ayurvedic practitioner Dr. Deepak Chopra. Ayurveda teaches that there are three governing principles (doshas) that make up each individual, and that each person must be aware of the connection between the mind and the body in order to create harmony and good health. By properly balancing one's doshas with the use of herbal remedies, color therapies, music therapies, massage, aromatherapy, and yoga (among others), Ayurveda can be used to combat illnesses ranging from depression to insomnia to ulcers. This comprehensive guide to Ayurveda is presented in a practical, accessible style that will appeal to the millions turning to alternative therapies.
