~I have read dozens of books on Ayurveda published in English; this stands out as simply the best of what I have read.
It is sensitive, sympathetic to the conditions discussed, and lucid.
A great work. So many others have been based on (and written with) excellent information and the best of intentions, but somehow have ended up being more confusing than helpful... even in something as basic as classifying doshas, I never really grasped them clearly until I read this book, which is laid out~~ calmly, clearly, and with massive knowledge and experience underlying its clarity.
Again, an excellent book by someone who also seems to be a great human being-- it flows through all his words.~

Format: Paperback
Ayurvedic Healing is an excellent book whether you know anything about the Vedic medical science of Ayurveda, or not. The book deals with:
a) Finding out what body type you have, (vata-air, pitta-fire, kapha- earth/water) based on a questionnaire of health related questions
b) It helps you determine what kind of diet you can follow to balance your system.
c) It deals with common ailments as well as major diseases, covering everything from arthritis to AIDS
d) You can learn how to use chants, colors etc to relieve stress.

And that s just section I. In section II, it deals with the technical preparations with the use of various herbs, oils etc, which ayurvedic doctors use.
Thus this book is a comprehensive study of Ayurveda, which can be used to good effect by both the layman and the ayurvedic practitioner.

I agree entirely with the other reviewers. This is one of the most complete, easy to understand, information rich "guides" on Ayurvedic Medicine I have read. Having taken many courses in this field, and using the practice, I have read much. I could have started with this one and kept it as a reference for the others! I highly recommend this one for anyone interested in Ayurvedic Medicine, from the practitioner to the remotely curious.

This is such a great little book. I no longer resonate with western medicine as I have had numerous reactions to it's "solutions" to my issues and I have trouble with the ineffective and limited diagnosis of traditional MD's. My issues of a "medical" or the physical imbalances, I used the remedies recommended in the book to jump start my thyroid. I feel great and also realized the unconscious reasons I slow down my thyroid. Funny how natural healing can open you up intuitively to why you create your own dis-ease or imbalances. I feel empowered to take care of my own issues instead of calling my practitioner.

This book is not for one who has a casual interest in Ayurveda as it is a "technical" Ayurveda manual. (for an introductory book I recommend Eat-Taste-Heal: An Ayurvedic Cookbook for Modern Living). The first part of this book deals with an overall look at Ayurveda philosophy and "right living"; the second part goes over the treatment for specific illnesses which are divided by type of illness (digestive, circulatory, etc.). Overall the content is valuable and well-presented. In fact I would give the book five stars except that the index is woefully inadequate, not even including the illnesses written about in the second portion of the book.
