Paperback from Lantern Books
ISBN: 1590560671

The ancient Indian system of healing and medicine known as Ayurveda has proven effective in disease prevention and health creation for thousands of years. Ayurvedic medicine works by enlivening the body's inner intelligence and enhancing the immunity of the individual. It treats the disease at the source rather than the symptoms alone, without adverse side effects or creating a new disease.

Popularized in the United States by Deepak Chopra and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Ayurveda has become well known and is used extensively throughout North America as a holistic alternative both to allopathic and to homeopathic medicine.

In this comprehensive guide to Ayurvedic cooking--complete with a set of delicious and easy-to-make recipes--physician and naturopath Dr. Kumuda Reddy shows you how to determine whether your body type is vata, pitta, or kapha, so that you can optimize your individual health through healthy and nutritious meals that suit your body type.

The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook: Healthful, Healing Recipes for Life
The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook: Healthful, Healing Recipes for Life
by Amrita Sondhi
Paperback from Arsenal Pulp Press
ISBN: 1551522047
Ayurveda is a holistic healing tradition from India whose history is linked to the development of yoga. It is an ancient system in which physical and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful diet based on one's individual constitution.

Ayurveda is about achieving a physical and spiritual balance through a number of means, including yoga, aromatherapy, and diet. This all-vegetarian cookbook based on Ayurvedic traditions features delectable and nutritious recipes that appeal to particular doshas, which are one's personal constitution based on physical and mental characteristics: fire (pitta), air (vata), and earth (kapha). (The book includes a dosha questionnaire so readers can determine their own.) And while the recipes are authentically Ayurvedic, they feature easy-to-find ingredients and modern-day cooking methods appropriate for busy schedules.

The book also includes yoga postures, cleansing programs, and information on aromatherapy, color therapy, and Abhyanga massage. There are also suggested meat substitutions for non-vegetarians. (Ayurveda is not exclusively vegetarian, although this book is.)

Written with both converts and beginners in mind, The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook is a twenty-first-century approach to a five-thousand-year-old tradition that will restore your health, energy, and sense of well-being.
Two-color throughout.
