That book, combined with information er.vasant by the doctor, helped set the stage for getting the most out of this text and moving my understanding of Ayurveda forward. It’s not that The Science of Self-Healing is an advanced-level medical book, but for those of us only familiar with western-style medicine, some of the concepts and practices may seem alien, confusing, and vague.
However, it’s worth the effort to work through the material and develop an understanding as this 4, year old science can provide great assistance in preserving your physical health and quality of life. By consulting with an experienced doctor who investigates beyond what your physical body currently looks like and general personality traits, you will gain a greater understanding of what you need to sustain well-being through your dietary choices.

It’s tempting to just write “hogwash” and be done with it, but I don’t want to be that disrespectful either to another culture or to someone who based on his acknowledgments seems like a really nice guy.

Other things didn’t sit right, but then the next big alarm was therapeutic vomiting. After that, when I questions onions alleviating severe epileptic seizures, zodiac influence on organs, and the curative properties of gemstones, then it didn’t mean that much anymore – I was already checked out.
I was never going to support something that encourages a life free of attachment anyway.
That being said, I was amused to read that garlic is sexually stimulating and should be avoided by celibate people. Perhaps that is what gives Italians their reputation.

Yet another mechanism that made a lot of sense to me was the accumulation of toxins on eating junk and unhealthy food, and the different ways in which I could counter it.
Since the content described in this book was originally mastered during a time when there was little incentive to con people, the book seems to contain a great amount of truthful advice. Jan 30, Jason Prasad rated it it was amazing.
I’ve been practicing yoga’s sister ayurveda for a few months now and am absolutely loving it! Self-hexling out that I’m kapha dominant has made a massive difference to my energy levels, digestion, yoga. It’s been great to know that many of the things I’ve learned to do intuitively has already been laid out in ayurveda, and it’s as if someone’s already understood and done the rest of my homework for me!

Vasant Lad Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing
Read this book this week, it was a great introduction. Easy read and great to have handy for easy reference. Feb 28, Jule rated it really scisnce it Shelves: This is a great introduction in case you want to learn about ayurveda without prior experience. It is a concise read that outlines the major concepts and principles of vedic science.
When i get sick, have some kind of health issue or am looking for advice on lifestyle more generally i like to search the index and table of contents and start from there.
I always find this book very insightful and have it at hand. Jan 25, Debra Brunk rated it it was ok.
However, I felt like this book ‘dumped’ a bunch of terms and I ecience left floundering trying to put all the information together in a logical way. If you’re just getting started in this area, I would try to find another book that takes the time to go into some of the history and details.
Jun 10, Andrew rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Excellent, goes well beyond the simple lists of balancing foods for each dosha, but explains the theory behind them. Branches out into appropriate if, waking practices, eating patterns and delves somewhat into more advanced learning. Jan 08, Shala rated it really liked it.

Apr 23, Aurore Henze rated it really liked it Shelves: A very simple Ayurvedic book- too simple in my opinion, but it gives a very good understanding about the meridians and diagnostics such as urine, tongue and pulse diagnosis.
Aug 22, Natalia rated it it was amazing. I definitely recommend it to someone that’s looking for an introduction of Ayurveda.
It was really interesting to me. Feb 04, Robin rated it liked it Shelves: This book conveys aelf-healing I see as a very classical version of the Ayurvedic science. While I am sure that the practices outlined in the book have been helpful to people over the centuries, I think some of them would be hard to transfer to the lives of most Americans.
There is definitely some wisdom to the Ayurvedic system, but our fast paced American life and the practices of our culture would make it hard if faithfully adhere to the Ayurvedic practices.
It would mean a complete shift in lifestyle This book conveys what I see as a very classical version of the Ayurvedic science. It would mean a complete shift in lifestyle. We are all different and therefore a generalized prescription of how to take care our YOUR body may not be effective.
Apr 28, Christina Wiseman rated it liked it. The author tried, but too often went down tangent paths difficult for me to follow and remember. May 30, Hannah Henson rated it it was amazing.
Touched on a little bit of everything that Ayurveda has to offer, much like a beginner’s course.
Definitely opened the door for me to delve deeper into this ancient science.
