Overview

Beautifully repackaged and completely redesigned, this practical guide to the ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda has been a popular reference since its 1995 publication.

Ayurveda offers personalized ways to achieve and maintain long-term wellness based on your unique combination of fundamental energies. In an accessible, practical format, The Book of Ayurveda unlocks the secrets of health and longevity by exploring the influence of these vital energies on your physical and emotional wellbeing and offers a lifestyle guide designed to maximize health, longevity, and enjoyment of living.

According to Ayurveda, it is the imbalance of your vital energies that leads to the development of disease. The Book of Ayurveda offers suggestions on how to tailor your diet and daily routine to balance your energies and achieve physical equilibrium and harmony. Included is a chart indicating foods that can pacify or aggravate your constitution, conditions and diseases to which you are specifically prone, and holistic techniques—such as meditation, herbology, and massage—that can soothe and balance.

Ayurveda is the system for healthful living advanced in bestsellers such as Deepak Chopra's Ageless Body, Timeless Mind. In this practical guide, Morrison explains in detail how to practice a daily regime compatible with one's constitution. Photos & drawings, many in color.

    Great Easy to Read Introduction to Ayurveda

    I sometimes have trouble staying interested in a book long enough to finish it; however, this book kept me entertained and interested all the way through. I learned a tremendous amount in regards to the basics of ayurveda. There are many diagrams/pictures which make the book enjoyable and easy to follow! I highly recommend this book as a great and complete introduction study to this practice!
