This book IS NOT an easy read. The Ayurveda healing system requires serious and long term study to understand how to apply the healing principles. This is a book that must be seriously studied to actually understand the material. If you can find an experienced Ayurveda instructor or take a college level course on this healing system than this book is a great reference source.
This book is organized into thirteen chapters and covers a wide range of topics. It is also fully illustrated with numerous charts. Some of the material you will find in this book includes: history and philosophy, the first life science, Ayurveda and human potential, Ayurveda and the western mind, the five elements of man, the human constitution, disease process, attributes, diagnosis, treatment, diet, taste, lifestyle and routine, time, longevity, medicinal, and many other subjects.
If you are seeking to learn this Indian healing system (Ayurveda) you may want to check out this book; however, be aware that this is a complex system to learn from a book.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Chair/Seated Tai Chi, Qigong, and Yoga for seniors and the physically challenged).
But I must admit that I not are living with, or accepting, quite the same ideas about the grouping of persons, behavior, diseases and so on. For example, with the left side of a person contains female, or lunar, energy while the right side contains male or solar energy, and thereby with effect for which side to sleep on.
While in the Appendix B, First Aid Treatments, there are many advises, with among other herbs to use, which I accept, and think to be fine.
But again, for me mostly a historically informative book.
