I love Ayurveda medicine. Very similar to Chinese Medicine, they use herbs that grow in India and have their own list of points and other ways of treatment.
I am an Ayurveda Massage Teacher for many years now, and love every bit of my classes (I need to think in some new dates for my new classes).
About the book:
Going beyond the idea of medicine as just a healing science, Ayurveda serves a threefold function:
Preventive—a concept of health care and personal hygiene meant for every person.Psychological—a philosophy of life dealing with essential aspects of human existence.Curative—a medical science with a comprehensive approach to the concept of health and disease, offering extensive methods of cure.
Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Ayurveda explores this fascinating art along with its therapeutic approaches and its materials.
My 2 pence:
Very good book, great for beginners or to have a refresh on the memory, with excellent photos and facts.
