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)

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 have used it for a few years now, its getting a bit worn!
Really amazing helpful, everyday useful information.
The only trouble I had was a temporary side effect due to Yogaraj Guggulu. That seemed to be the right medicine but not for one who may be prone to pitta imbalance in addition to vata imbalance. It would have been better if the book included the warning, as it has for a few other remedies.
Perhaps inevitably, in covering so much ground, the author is not able to go into a lot of detail about each aspect or each illness. So for me this book makes an excellent introduction to Ayurveda for people who are interested in maintaining their health when it is already fairly good.
