Every day, increasing numbers of people are turning to the ancient health system of Ayurveda to restore balance and well-being in their lives. While Ayurveda is easy to implement, its concepts and Sanskrit terms are often confusing. In Ayurvedic Nutrition, however Atreya has explained them clearly and lucidly. It is therefore the most accessible book on Ayurveda to date. For anyone who has struggled with one-size-fits-all diet fads, it offers a welcome relief with its comprehensive approach to nutrition adopted to every body type. Beginning with a self-test to determine specific metabolic and psychological profile, the book emphasizes the importance of balance among all levels of the healing process-mind, body, and spirit. It then presents clear guidelines for choosing foods and making lifestyle choices to support a natural, healthy state and avoid those practices that disrupt natural metabolic balance. Drawn from the author's twenty five years of practicing natural medicine, the book is highlighted by case studies, which illuminate the healing and balancing powers of Ayurveda. From weight loss to the reversal of disease, the programs outlined in this practical and inspirational book will help anyone recover natural rhythms and restore inherent balance.

I am inspired by your highly practical approach and your efforts to bring Vedic concepts to the West in its totality, without diluting it. I am amazed by your ability to express Ayurveda in the most holistic way.
