"Katie Silcox leads the next generation of thought leaders—helping people live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives. The fact that she can deliver what she has to say with so much clarity, humor, caring, and yes, sexiness is a gift, because it means that more and more of us will continue to be drawn to listen and thus, benefit from the ancient wisdom she so expertly conveys." (Rod Stryker, American yoga master and author of The Four Desires)
“Ayurveda originated, in part, to address the disorders and ease the discomfort of a populous grown increasingly distant from the intimate practical knowledge of, and proximity to nature’s cycles, seasons, and wisdom. Katie Silcox empathizes with these city and worldly dwellers, and shares simple, light-hearted, possibly life-changing perspectives and techniques that hail from the time-tested sisters in Indian sciences: Ayurveda and Yoga.” (Dr. Claudia Welch, author of Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life)
“Katie Silcox, you are the Carrie Bradshaw of the yoga and Ayurveda movement in the United States.” (Meredith Hogan, voted Cincinnati's Best Yoga Teacher 2011)
"Katie translates the self-help ancient system of Ayurveda for the modern woman who wants to be more healthy, happy, and sexy, and achieve the goals of pleasure, prosperity, purpose, and freedom—living life to the fullest." (Sharon Gannon, founder of Jivamukti Yoga)
"Katie's book feeds her readers, no doubt, but more importantly in many ways, it also nourishes the Ayurvedic tradition itself." (Prashanti de Jager, founder of Organic India and The Pacific Center for Ayurveda and author of Turmeric and The Spice of Life)
"Katie Silcox has written a practical, spicy, and highly readable manual for creating a workable Ayurvedic lifestyle. She makes this ancient traditional approach to health completely accessible—and in the process, inspires us to revolutionize our health by following the principles she outlines. Carefully researched and irradiated by Kate's own years of practice, this is a book to keep by your side for guidance through all the seasons of your life. I highly recommend Healthy Happy Sexy–not least for the insights Katie offers on what it means to practice with the authenticity and radical self-honesty that real health and well being require!" (Sally Kempton, world-renowned spiritual teacher, and author of Awakening Shakti and Meditation for the Love of It)
"Katie Silcox’s voice is strong, clear, nourishing and empowering. Healthy Happy Sexy is a contemporary yogini’s book of ancient secrets and profound knowledge of our body, spirit and soul. Katie masterfully presents the philosophy and practices of Ayurveda with her own wisdom and experience. She shows how we can create our own journey into wellness and embrace our inherent sexual and creative power. Her book is an open–hearted and soulful invitation to align our natural rhythm with Mother Earth so that we too may reap the benefits of a balanced and harmonious life. Katie’s wise and witty guidance inspires us to make empowered choices about wellness so we can live a life of juicy freedom. This beautiful and inspiring book is for any woman who wants to come into alignment with herself and the Divine.” (Laura Amazzone, author of Goddess Durga and Sacred Female Power)
“Katie Silcox’s book, and indeed her life, is filled with refreshingly real, flowingly connected, and valuably accessible moments of Kala-Deshi-Patra, making her work more potentially ‘Authentic Ayurveda’ than the literally outdated Victorian attitudes that have attenuated Ayurveda’s blossoming for many decades now. Katie’s book feeds her readers, no doubt, but more importantly in many ways, it also nourishes the Ayurvedic tradition itself. By giving it a new license, and thus a new life, she sustains the perennial wisdom of this grand ‘Science of Life.’” (Prashanti de Jager, MS, founder of Organic India and The Pacific Center for Ayurveda, author of Turmeric: The Ayurvedic Spice of Life)
“Happy Healthy Sexy is a great introduction to the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda and is brought to life by Katie Silcox, one of a new generation of gifted writers. Intelligently written and witty, readers will be inspired to take greater care of their sacred self and bring the sacred into everyday life.” (Dr. Marc Halpern, president of the California College of Ayurveda and author of Healing Your Life)
“Katie translates the self-help ancient system of Ayurveda for the modern woman who wants to be more healthy, happy, and sexy and achieve the goals of pleasure, prosperity, purpose, and freedom—living life to the fullest.” (Sharon Gannon, founder of Jivamukti Yoga)

Katie recommends either eating according to your dosha or eating according to the season, Kapha (late winter/spring) Pitta (summer), and Vata (fall/early winter). That in itself is not new but what is great about the book is she really focuses on the entire lifestyle. What you put in your body...what you put on your body...what you think...what you breathe. For instance, Katie talks about what oils to use to moisturize or massage the body based on your dosha.
Katie has some very impressive credentials in Ayurveda and especially in yoga so she definitely knows what she's talking about. I love her tone throughout, she comes across like one of your girlfriends. I have had the pleasure of attending a few workshops with Katie for my teacher training as well as a one-on-one Ayurvedic consultation and she is a genuine and lovely soul.
If you want an in-depth, science based book, this is not for you. But if you are ready to change your lifestyle (yes, not diet, lifestyle) then let Happy, Healthy, Sexy be your guide and let Katie be your guru.
