This book is a profound but practical testament to the healing power of balanced living and shows how Ayurveda's ancient principles of health can help you achieve the highest levels of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Cancer survivor Maya Tiwari provides a thorough profile of the seven body types and the foods best suited to each. Her book is the first to include a complete discussion of the personality or psychospiritual attributes of the Ayurvedic body types, as well as food charts, seasonal menus, and recommended daily routines for each type. A chapter on sadhanas focuses on activities of the hearth, home, garden, and community that activate our "cognitive memory" of right living. An extensive section of uncomplicated recipes, keyed to the body types, and another on home remedies help provide a painless transition to a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
