Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Lad, a leading expert in the field and founder of the Ayurvedic Institute (Albuquerque, NM), demystifies this ancient healing tradition from India. He provides handy self-analysis charts to determine one's constitutional type and describes down-to-earth Ayurvedic home remedies and routines for over 120 health conditions. A helpful resource list and glossary increase his book's value. (LJ 3/1/98)
Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

Lad, director of an Ayurvedic educational institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, refers to Ayurveda as "the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature." This comprehensive and easy-to-use guide can be considered the Ayurvedic counterpart to a conventional home medical handbook. Parts 1 and 2 present the philosophy, principles, and therapies of this 5,000-year-old Indian medical system. The therapies include diet, herbs, exercise and yoga, oil massage, breathing techniques, meditation, and such adjuncts as sound, color, and aromatherapy. Part 3, fully one-half of the guide, is an encyclopedia of remedies organized in an AZ format by symptom or condition; see references provide adequate access to the more than 100 common ailments. Numerous sidebars throughout the text provide additional information or precautions. The guide closes with line drawings of yoga postures, a glossary, resources, and further reading.

Format: Paperback
This book is the first one I've read on Ayurveda which makes immediate sence. Written in a practical straight forward way, It is obvious the author genuinely cares about his readers.
I have tried several cures listed in the book, they have provided better and faster relief than any drugs. There is one for sinus headache (pg 250) that worked in less than 10 min. And the best story of all, is one he lists for food allergies which has allowed me to eat dairy and wheat again. This book has changed my life. I have been independantly studying holistic medicine for the past 9 years, and this book is a fast leap forward in my awareness of the field of alternative treatments.
I only hope to be able to meet Dr. Lad some day and offer my gratitude.
Sincerely
Eric Lloyd

I have been buying books on Ayurveda for several years. I usually read a little and then put them on the shelf. Not so with Dr. Lad's The Complete Book of Auyrvedic Home Remedies. I immediately adopted his simple morning routine, and it has helped me physically and mentally. I recommend this book to anyone interested in making a profound, positive change. It's practical and easy to follow.

This book is incredibly useful, and full of home remedies for a very wide variety of problems. I've tried many of them myself - for sinus troubles, insect bites, ordinary fatigue, and simple stomach complaints. It also has guidance on more serious issues, to be used in concert with a physician's medical advice. As a physician, I have over 20 "home medical guides" in my house, and I usually turn to this one first. I highly recommend it for any household.

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who is actively involved in attaining a good health or someone with health issues who is looking for a natural way to fix it. I have read this and many other books by Dr. Lad and also been to a 3 day health convention where he personally discussed the Ayurvedic ways of achieving perfect health. I cannot say enough about Ayurveda in general and the way Dr. Lad puts forth the information and it all makes so much sense. I have personally used his remedies discussed in this book for severe respiratory allergies, sciatica and common colds etc and it works!!!!! However, any user has to understand that these remedies are not like weatern medicine but they work as a life style change in terms of following a daily routine of life, watching your food combinations and knowing and eating according to your body type. I have recommended this book to many of my friends. I fact, I own 3 copies and keep lending two to friends and still have one for myself to consult.

For common ailments like sore throat, constipation, headaches.. ayurveda works wonderfully. Why spend $20 co-pay to your physician for these ailments when you can get the cure in your kitchen (e.g. honey, pepper, milk.. ). Its worth it!!

This is probably the best book on ayurveda available today. It is clear, doesn't go into excessive detail, and gives you a wonderful sense of self-understanding. Dr. Lad has written other books as well, but this one is the most approachable.

Who would have thought that mixing a mashed banana with two very common kitchen ingredients would help with a little girl's cough? Or, that a tea containing cinnamon combined with two other tasty kitchen spices would reduce a little boy's fever?

Dr. Ladd's book is full of simple, home remedies that are wonderful for children and perfect for parents who are interested in natural home medicines for their children. Our family has used the recipies in this book extensively for both children and adults over the years with great success. If you are looking for a replacement for the standard over the counter drugs for kids, this is the book for you.
