Based on the ancient healing tradition from India that dates back thousands of years, The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies offers natural alternatives to conventional medicines and treatments with practical advice and easy-to-follow instructions.
Dr. Vasant Lad, a leading authority in this field, has created an invaluable guide to treating common ailments and chronic problems with strategies tailored to your personal needs based on your dosha. Dr. Lad first explains the principles in the back of the science of Ayurveda, exploring the physical and psychological characteristics of each of the three doshas, or mind-body types–vata, pitta, and kapha. After getting decided 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.
Dr. Lad explains why certain imbalances regularly result in illness and shows you how to restore your body to natural order. You’ll be able to learn which traditional Ayurvedic remedies–herbal teas and formulas, essential oils, meditation, yoga–offer relief from various 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 which were refined over thousands of years. The entire herbs, foods, and oils Dr. Lad recommends can also 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, secure, and effective remedies, everyday keys to a lifetime of vitality and well-being.
