From the Jacket :

For over 3000 years, Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of living, has addressed itself to the fundamental principles of good health and longevity. It has developed a tradition of medicine and a system of treatment based on the inherent ability of the human body to rejuvenate, to heal and to restore its natural balance. It seeks to strengthen and enhance the body's own healing processes - to help the body help itself.

The book shares the millennia of Ayurvedic experience of preventing and effectively treating over 100 common and not-so-common ailments, using time proven concepts of regulated diet and a healthy lifestyle, supported with remedies and treatments that are safe, effective and affordable.
