The Book of Ayurveda is a fully illustrated guide, making this ancient Indian system of health and vitality easy to understand. Ayurveda interprets your constitution type as a combination of three fundamental energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. This unique imprint affects your eating and sleeping habits, digestion, metabolism and moods, as well as your predisposition to particular health conditions. If your lifestyle is out of balance with your constitution, you will be prone to illness until the energy is adjusted. Includes illustrated charts and questionnaires to identify your Ayurvedic type, lifestyle and exercise advice for vitality and health, plus food charts to explain how to balance your diet the Ayurvedic way.
