About the Author

Birgit Heyn is a Viennese pharmacist who became disenchanted with conventional medicine and the over-dependency of patients upon synthetic drugs. She studied Ayurveda during a period of many years with several Indian teachers and at the Hindu University of Benares. This book is a synthesis of her studies and continued research, providing an excellent overview of both the science and philosophy of Indian natural healing.
