Lad, a leading expert in the field and founder of the Ayurvedic Institute (Albuquerque, NM), demystifies this ancient healing tradition from India. He provides handy self-analysis charts to determine one's constitutional type and describes down-to-earth Ayurvedic home remedies and routines for over 120 health conditions. A helpful resource list and glossary increase his book's value. (LJ 3/1/98)
Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Lad, director of an Ayurvedic educational institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, refers to Ayurveda as "the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature." This comprehensive and easy-to-use guide can be considered the Ayurvedic counterpart to a conventional home medical handbook. Parts 1 and 2 present the philosophy, principles, and therapies of this 5,000-year-old Indian medical system. The therapies include diet, herbs, exercise and yoga, oil massage, breathing techniques, meditation, and such adjuncts as sound, color, and aromatherapy. Part 3, fully one-half of the guide, is an encyclopedia of remedies organized in an AZ format by symptom or condition; see references provide adequate access to the more than 100 common ailments. Numerous sidebars throughout the text provide additional information or precautions. The guide closes with line drawings of yoga postures, a glossary, resources, and further reading.

I have tried several cures listed in the book, they have provided better and faster relief than any drugs. There is one for sinus headache (pg 250) that worked in less than 10 min. And the best story of all, is one he lists for food allergies which has allowed me to eat dairy and wheat again. This book has changed my life. I have been independantly studying holistic medicine for the past 9 years, and this book is a fast leap forward in my awareness of the field of alternative treatments.
I only hope to be able to meet Dr. Lad some day and offer my gratitude.
I think the book is five stars! I gave 4 starts to the kindle edition because the table of contents do not include the details for illnesses and remedies A-Z section and there is no index! It takes a really long time to scroll through it... and yes you can use search but you have to guess the right term. For example, I only found morning sickness because I was reading migraines...
Thanks in advance for future improvements to the kindle edition.
