In a sweeping look at Ayurveda, India's 5,000-year-old medical system, Dr. Lad skillfully combines a comprehensive explanation of Ayurvedic principles with practical tips on how to use its ancient techniques to improve your life today. To begin, the book helps you determine your mind-body type, or dosha (Are you a Vata, Pitta, or Kapha?), and then shows you how a self-care program tailored to your basic dosha will be particularly effective in combating disease and preventing future illness. Of special interest is an easy-to-follow A to Z guide, in which Lad provides advice on everything from allergies to yeast infections and gives you specific recommendations about using herbs, diet, yoga, and mind-body exercises to restore your health.
