Ayurveda, Nature’s Medicine contains a full description of Ayurveda on all levels from diet and herbs to yoga and meditation, explaining both Ayurvedic diagnostic and treatment methods. It covers all the material found in two year Ayurvedic programs in India for foreign students. Notably, it explains key Ayurvedic lifestyle recommendations for diet, exercise and sexuality, outlining daily and seasonal regimens for optimal health and vitality. The book is an importand addition to any Ayurvedic library and is excellent reading for anyone interested in the eastern roots of mind body medicine. It is perhaps the best available textbook on Ayurveda for the serious student.
