More About the Author

Dr. Scott Gerson, M.D., Ph.D. was born in New York City and attended Brandeis University in Waltham, MA and received his B.A. in Philosophy. He then travelled to Europe and eventually to India where he met one of his early teachers, the highly renowned vaidya Dr. V.N. Pandey, the director of the Central Council For Research in Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine. Through this friendship, Dr. Gerson began to earnestly study Ayurveda and eventually continued his studies at the College of Ayurveda in Trivandrum, where he spent almost three years. He completed his full Ayurvedic training at the Tilak Ayurved Mahavidyalaya in Pune. As his knowledge and insight into Ayurvedic principles developed, Dr. Gerson's interest started to become focused in the area of Panchakarma Chikitsa--the science of detoxification and rejuvenation. He therefore took up residence for some time in Kottakkal, India the home of the famous Panchakarma facility, the Arya Vaidya Sala, directed by the late Dr. P.N. Varier who became Dr. Gerson¹s second important mentor.

Dr. Gerson founded The National Institute Of Ayurvedic Medicine in 1982, his private medical practice, and since that time has integrated Ayurveda with conventional allopathic medicine. He does not travel extensively except for trips to India once a year. He prefers to remain as quiet and still as possible and to assists his patients with their understanding of their health conditions. The primary activity in his life is to be available as an Ayurvedic consultant and physician for his patients in his New York office. He supports the spread of Ayurveda through the research and educational activities of The National Institiute of Ayurvedic Medicine, where he gives regular seminars and workshops on Ayurvedic Medicine and related complementary medicine topics.

Currently, Dr. Gerson is the only Westerner to hold a Ph.D. degree in Ayurveda--the highest level of Ayurvedic education--and the only physician in the United States to have complete formal training in both conventional and Ayurvedic medicine. His Ph.D. thesis in Panchakarma Chikitsa (Detoxification Therapy) was accepted jointly by the Univerity of Poona and Tilak Ayurved Mahavidyalaya in 2003. He was appointed Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Ayurved of University of Pune in 2004 where he is active in academic and research activities. He is a member of the teaching and research faculties at the prestigious Institute of Indian Medicine in Poona as well as numerous other academic affiliations including the Central Council for Rsearch in Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine, the Indian government¹s principal Ayurvedic organization. Dr. Gerson holds the position of Clinical Assistant Professor at New York Medical College in the Department of Community and Preventive Medicine.

Dr. Gerson uses the ayurvedic approach to weight loss and diet in his clinic and has been very successful in aiding his patients in gaining long-term control over their weight management strategies. When Dr. Oz did his recent program on Ayurvedic diet for body type, it became clear that the experience of Dr. Gerson and his work with his patients was both very relevant and very timely. Even applying just a few of the tips can make a difference in how one feels and how one controls one's weight. One particularly useful tip for me was the recommendation to sip room temperature water through the day to moderate the appetite. Simple, yet effective.

Ayurvedic diet can be complicated since it isn't one size fits all, rather you need to tailor what you consume and create new habits for optimum health. While it can be confusing, if you are not familiar with the concepts of dosha's, once you or your practitioner has determined yours, this book becomes valuable in your plan to lose weight and regain health and vitality.

With so much diet advice coming from so many different places, it's nice to have a source that is not only grounded in a tradition based on thousands and thousands of years of experience, but also incredibly effective. I've been a patient of Dr. Gerson's so I can attest to the fact that this guy really knows what he's doing (he was able to quickly resolve some issues that no one else came even close to figuring out). With some simple dietary tweaks I've been able to resolve my health issues and greatly improve my health (e.g., I almost never get sick anymore, and when I do, it clears up in about 1/3 of the time it used to take me to fully recover from sicknesses in the past). While modern medicine has its attributes, more people would be better served by first visiting someone like Dr. Gerson (easily one of the most intelligent and witty people I've ever met).
