More About Ayurveda Made Simple by Sally Morningstar
The traditional healing system of India, Ayurveda is increasingly popular in the western world. Literally translated, it means 'life knowing' or 'science of life', and is one of the oldest recorded health practices still used throughout the world. Ayurveda is a complete health system for mind, body and spirit. Rather than treating symptoms, it treats the whole patient, working holistically to prevent and treat disease. Ayurveda uses the elements, seasons, planets and bodily humours to discover areas of potential weakness; it operates on the assumption that everyone is composed of various combinations of the five elements: earth, air, fire, water and ether. According to the laws of Ayurveda, these elements are manifested in each individual through doshas, or body types; there are three main types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Maintaining the balance of your dosha is the key to successful Ayurvedic practice, and this is done through diet, exercise, massage, crystals, gems and colour. This accessible book explains how you can discover your body type and how the elements express themselves within you. It then takes you through the dietary requirements, massage techniques and appropriate oils, herbs, colours, crystals, gems, exercise and tonics recommended to maintain equilibrium for each body type. Whether you are actively looking for a complete holistic healing system or simply need to regain a sense of balance and harmony, this invaluable guide is a key to using and understanding the powerful system of Ayurvedic medicine.The ancient Indian healing system for spiritual harmony and physical healthDiscover your body type and how to maintain spiritual and physical well-being through diet, massage, herbs, colour, crystals and exerciseStep-by-step sequences for crystal and colour infusions, massage techniques, and tonics recommended to restore harmony and balance Advice on Ayurvedic self-help in the home with treatments for common ailments
