A Little Bit of Ayurveda - An Introduction to Ayurvedic Medicine

Author(s): Deacon Carpenter

General Health

This entry in the popular Little Bit of series introduces the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda.

Known as the "grandparent" of modern medicine and the sister philosophy of yoga, Ayurveda lets patients take control of their own health by focusing on prevention, not medical intervention. Practitioners become active participants in their own wellness by managing stress, consuming healing foods, and understanding which remedies work for their particular body/mind types. A Little Bit of Ayurveda explores the history, philosophy, and practical application of this ancient and relevant system: it looks at Ayurveda's influence on both Eastern and Western medicines; outlines the "five element theory" and the doshas; reveals how disease manifests itself; and offers simple rituals to keep you balanced, from seasonal eating and deep belly breathing to dry brushing and tongue scraping. A quiz at the end helps you complete an Ayurvedic self-evaluation . . . and starts you on the path to wellness
