Ayurveda, or ‘the science of life,’ is one of today’s most popular and fastest growing complementary therapies. Based on the ancient philosophies of India, ayurvedic medicine provides a unique, holistic approach to healing which assesses the individual and his or her lifestyle, rather than focusing narrowly upon symptoms. The Handbook of Ayurveda introduces this complex medical corpus in simple and straightforward terms. Starting by defining the three energies, or doshas, of vata, pitta, and kappa, it offers suggested diets, therapies, activities, and spiritual measures for attaining dosha balance. A practical daily plan exemplified through case studies, and advice for couples and mother and baby, offer readers an opportunity to meld this ancient wisdom into their own lives.
