Guide Review - The Complete Illustrated Guide To Ayurveda

At a time when more and more people are turning to the holistic medical system of Ayurveda to stay healthy, this book is a must for reference. But unlike many reference books on the topic, this one is quite enjoyable! Written by two experts, this is a great comprehensive and practical guide to the ancient medical system of ayurveda full of color photographs and illustrations. It explains how the ancient system works, its current applications — disease, diagnosis treatment and prevention.

This is one of those rare books on the subject that has been presented in a wonderfully pleasant visual format, which makes the study of such an arcane topic relevant and enjoyable. It answers almost all your questions and everything is put in the right perspective for the layman. So it makes for a great read for the uninitiated, across age groups.
