Best Audience: Beginning herbalist and folks who are interested in learning about bringing balance to life through Ayurvedic principles
Of the three titles Yoga Will offered me to get me started on my Ayurvedic studies, The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies: Based on the Timeless Wisdom of India’s 5,000-Year-Old Medical System by Dr. Vasant Lad was my favorite. It was the second I read, so perhaps already having had an intro into Ayurvedic thought gave me a leg-up, but honestly, I think that Vasant made the basics of Ayurveda quite understandable. I loved that his approach was forgiving; he suggested that one ought to do one’s best to make choices appropriate to one’s constitution as much as possible. Many of his suggestions made plenty of sense and seemed doable, even if I’m not applying them all to my life at any given point. I appreciated that Vasant covered many aspects of living, too. He shows us how to tailor exercise, sleep, diet and nutrition, as well as a variety of therapies to our lives and constitutions in service of balance.
If I had space for only one book on Ayurveda on my shelf. The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies: Based on the Timeless Wisdom of India’s 5,000-Year-Old Medical System by Dr. Vasant Lad would be my choice. It’s practical and thorough, written in an easy style that’s understandable and enjoyable. I liked the section on conditions. Vasant offers a nice range of Ayurvedic approaches for each one.
The Bottom Line: The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies: Based on the Timeless Wisdom of India’s 5,000-Year-Old Medical System by Dr. Vasant Lad has earned a place on my bookshelf.
