Fine Introduction, but not Definitive

This book covers the fundamentals of holistic health / Ayurveda. This book helped me to understand the baics of our human body, why we get disease. It gave a positive perspective about health/life. So, Ayurveda not just treating the disease 'outside'. It's holistic healing with no side-effects (unlike alopathy). Be aware that this book is mainly an introduction book. If you looking for a highly practical Ayurveda book, following book by the same author is recommended: ~ The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies by Vasant Lad [If you want only one book,this is it! Every home who wants to be happy and naturally healthy should have this and follow it! ] Ayurveda will save your money and health! :) Be healthy and happy!

Great lectures

Same as the audio tapes, really great to have. Have them loaded on my ipod too. :)

A definitive reference book on Ayurveda

This book is the definitive reference book on Ayurveda. You will refer to it, time and time again.

excellent book

I had the privilage of being treated by Dr. Lad as well as going to several clases he gives at the Ayurvedic institute in Albuquerque NM. The book is a wonderful aid in trying to understand and identify health and disease. You have to be able to understand that "western" medicine is not the answer for everything and that in many cases it will eventually make you even sicker. What do you prefer, Prozac or a cup of some herbal tea that will eventually help you with depression?. What do you prefer, a cup of chamomile tea along with jatamansi or Pepto Bismol?. Ayurveda is something very real, helpful and extremely cheap. Hmmmm..... just wondering why allopacy wants to destroy alternative methods. Even better, is Ayurveda really an alternative treatment? 3,000 years before Jesus Ayurveda was being, just wondering who's really alternative. Give it a try, Vasant Lad is a great humble and loving person.

Yes, this is the definitive introductory ayurveda

Keeping it short: this is the only modern intro. to ayurveda that is utterly complete, thorough, concise... well written, top to bottom, thoughtfully organized.... full of very real everyday applications of ayurveda.... it's theory plus application.... confused about ayurveda? want more 'cause you still don't quite get it? yes, this is the book you need.... as an individual's very first book on ayurveda, it is potentially very dense, depending upon consciousness.... if you've already got the essentials in your head, this book will give you an acceleration of understanding...
