Ayurveda: A Comprehensive Guide to Traditional Indian Medicine for the West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word, denotes the Traditional Medicine of India. Translated as the science of life, the term more accurately implies the wisdom in living. Several thousand years old, its ancient roots produced an integrated body of enduring knowledge and practice incorporating medicine, psychology, aesthetics, philosophy, the humanities, and spirituality. Yet, it goes beyond only immediate care of health symptoms and illnesses by suggesting principles and practices for overall self-development and good health. This book offers the reader a concise yet detailed overview of thousands of years of deep thought and clinical work aimed at improving the human condition. Concentrating on healing and prevention, the practice is intended to restore balance and instill better health through consciousness and the connection between body, mind, and spirit. Through Ayurveda, Dr. Ninivaggi offers guidelines toward achieving a better quality of life and health in all areas of one's life.

Synopsis:

For thousands of years, Ayurveda has merged the traditional wisdom of eastern medicine, psychology, aesthetics, philosophy, the humanities, and spirituality to form the foundation of a worldview that is today prevalent throughout India. Now, Frank John Ninivaggi introduces one of the oldest medical systems to the West in a manner that is intelligent, understandable, and practical. By moving beyond conventional treatment of symptoms for illnesses such as diabetes, obesity, coronary heart disease and others, Ayurveda offers alternative principles and practices for overall self-development and better overall health by focusing upon life's purpose, its ills, and their treatments.
