About The Book
The ancient concept of the "Science (veda) of Life (ayur)," Ayurveda, dates back more than 5,000 years. Ayurveda provides a holistic approach to healthy living, providing guidance on how to enhance our physical, mental, social, and spiritual harmony. Reenita Malhotra Hora's approach in this book is to provide her readers with insight into understanding and applying Ayurveda to modern life. As an Indian-born American who has traveled the world, she explains these ancient techniques in a manner accessible to a contemporary audience. She discusses three key concepts of understanding Ayurvedic techniques, including Nidana - the diagnostic measures that an Ayurvedic health care provider would implement; Ahar - the idea that food is the primary source for preventive medicine; and Chikitsa - the Ayurvedic therapeutic support available commercially or through self-care.
