Although 22 years old, this book has been widely praised as one of the best introductory looks at Ayurvedic medicine and the ancient healing methods of India. Here Dr. Lad presents a basic overview of Ayurvedic principles and covers the eight major Ayurvedic specialties (pediatrics; gynecology; obstretrics; ophthamology; geriatrics; ear, nose and throat; general medicine; and surgery) considering them in part through the traditional lens of the five elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, Earth). The book is richly illustrated with photographs, drawings, tables, and charts, making it particularly useful for the novice.
