A beautiful book that brings the body to the centre stage. In a comprehensive fashion, Healthy Living with Ayurveda Provides us with an understanding of the prakriti (constitution) of a person, highlighting the necessity of personal participation and adaptations to seasonal changes, dietary intake, preventive measures and therapeutics. Healthy dietary alternatives, stress alleviating massages, and non allopathic medicinal regimens, all tailor made to suit your unique constitution make this book a must-have for those in search of a holistically healthy lifestyle.
The first step to living with ayurveda is to understand the body's unique requirements and responses to the environment based on individual prakritis (constitutions). The body is naturally intelligent- the right regimen, if followed with care and consistency, gives the perfect impetus to bodily wisdom. The ingenuity of Ayurveda lies in providing an optimal sense of responsibility to the individual for his or her well-being and happiness. Good health is at your fingertips: living the healthy way is living with ayurveda.
