Book Excerpt :

Brought to you by Basmati.com! Ayurveda isn’t a new study: it’s been practiced for nearly 6,000 years in India. But it’s endured throughout the years because of its holistic approach to health. Often translated as “the science of life,” Ayurveda looks at each individual’s personal constitution as a mix of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha characteristics; your constitution affects your health, personality, and more. Check out our comprehensive ebook on all things Ayurveda - from self-care, to recipes, to choosing an exercise that's best for your dosha. Don't know your dosha? We've got you covered there too - the ebook contains a quiz to determine your dosha! Ayurveda advocates seasonal eating, so a lot of the recipes here focus on fresh, seasonal, healing foods that balance your body's constitution.

Digestive Buttermilk Traditional Ancient Buttermilk Recipe Spicy Salt Salty Buttermilk Traditional Clarified Butter – Desi Ghee Conclusion Author Bio- Publisher Introducing Ayurveda Millenniums ago, an alternative medicine science based on natural ingredients, began to be practiced in the area, which is now called the Indian subcontinent. This science was known as Ayurveda. The exact Sanskrit meaning of this word means life knowledge. For millenniums, the art of healing knowledge based on this science has been passed down through the generations to heal and cure people of the diseases known to man. More than 5000 years ago, two of these great wise men, who practiced this science, named Charaka and Susrutha made medical compendiums, which talked about healing procedures, operational procedures, and medicines which would be used to heal the diseases known to man down the ages. These classics written in Sanskrit have been considered to be the foundation of the ancient science of Ayurveda. At the same time, traditional Chinese medicine was also making a name for itself, thanks to great medical practitioners, who took the help of these compendiums in order to develop well-known medical systems. Nowadays, these systems are considered to be alternative and complementary treatments, supporting the more conventional forms of modern medicine. This science is practiced in the USA, as a complementary health care licensed practice. This science is divided into eight parts – General medicine, surgery, pediatrics, dentistry/ENT/ophthalmology, toxicology, psychiatric treatments, anti- aging remedies and remedies for bearing healthy children. So, one can see that even at that time, all the ills of human beings were studied and remedies hunted for them. Ayurveda is based on curing disease or disorders from the root level. It uses herbs which are 100% natural, and are definitely not going to have a detrimental effect upon the body, when you stop using them. According to ancient Ayurveda, a living body is made up of five elements. The proper balance between the five elements so that they work in harmonious tandem with nature. [Prakriti.] Prakriti can also be called Constitution, when it is applied to another substance like a mineral, a fruit or a vegetable, etc. A healthy person is going to have an inborn and natural combination of three important elements, which are going to put him in harmony with nature. That means he is in good health. When these important elements are imbalanced, you are going to suffer from diseases. Ayurveda is the method in which these three elements are balanced by helping to modulate the surrounding environment, the human diet, lifestyle and the behavior of a suffering patient so that he can be healed. An Ayurvedic lifestyle concentrates on more of fruit and vegetables in your diet to keep healthy.

Book Short Summary:

Research paper from the year 2012 in the subject Medicine - Alternative Medicine, grade: 2,0, Hochschule für Gesundheit und Sport, Ismaning, language: English, abstract: If people living in the western civilization think about medicine the first thoughts coming to their minds may be medical scrubs, syringes, illness, science and a lot of complicated words they don’t understand. Terms like philosophy, prevention, responsibility and being in tune with one’s self and the environment aren’t directly related to the orthodox medicine. But that’s what Ayurveda, mankind’s oldest medical system, is all about. Ayurveda is the doctrine of longevity, it’s a religious based science of how to live one’s daily life. This over 3000 years old scheme, invented by wise men who got together at the foot of the Himalaya Mountains looking for methods to cure diseases, recognizes a close relationship between human and a universe where everything (plants, rocks, animals) is inspired. On the following pages I will look at Ayurvedic medicine, with its basic assumptions, most important forms of therapy, remedies and its special nutrition system.

Book Short Summary:

All you need to know about Ayurvedic Diet and Cooking along with easy-to-follow recipes backed by the timeless wisdom of Indian heritage to balance your Pitta Dosha... India is well-known for its traditional medical systems, which include Ayurveda, Siddha, and Unani. Ayurveda, which derives from ancient Vedic scriptures, is a 5,000-year-old medical ideology and philosophy based on the idea that we are all made up of different types of energy. It is more than just a medicinal system; it is often regarded as a way of life. Ayurveda contains some miraculous practices for body rejuvenation through diet and nutrition. It is a user-friendly and practical immersive system that helps the person to be self-sufficient and accountable for his/her health. It is a system of empowerment, prosperity, and long life. According to Ayurveda, there are 3 elemental bodily doshas—Vata (space or air, equated with the nervous system), Pitta (fire, equated with enzymes), and Kapha (water, equated with the digestive system) (earth and water, equated with mucus). Psychology is governed by a parallel set of mental doshas such as Satogun, Rajogun, and Tamogun. Each dosha has unique characteristics and roles within the body and mind; the natural predominance of one or more doshas describes a person’s physical constitution (Prakriti) and personality. According to Ayurvedic practice, a significant etiologic aspect of the illness is a mismatch between the bodily and mental doshas. Each has its own special strengths and weaknesses. To align these, the concepts of proper lifestyles, eating behaviors, and daily and seasonal routines practiced in Ayurveda can be implemented with appropriate modification. I’ve made a complete cookbook series on all 3 doshas; this is Pitta, others are also available! You can use this series to adjust your lifestyles and routines to supports your constitution. Ayurveda emphasizes Ahara (diet) and Anna (food) as a means to a decent life, fitness, and well-being and asserts that proper nutrition nourishes the mind, body, and soul. The elimination of toxins from the system and the electrochemical enrichment of the body are the primary goals of Ayurvedic Cooking. It is thus both an art and a science when cooking becomes alchemy and food becomes Tantra. With this “Ayurveda Cookbook For Beginners Series,” I provide you the best dietary practices, recipes, and everything you need to balance and heal your doshas alongside enjoying the authentic Indian flavors. This guide’s Ayurvedic Cooking techniques tell what to eat and how to eat to help the healing process and assist the body in removing contaminants and maintaining equilibrium. It has a wealth of knowledge on healthy diet, proper food combinations, food quality, food timing, and cooking methods. In this guide, you’ll discover: ✔️An Introduction to Ayurvedic Cooking ✔️Benefits of Ayurvedic Cooking and Diet ✔️Common Misconceptions in Ayurvedic Cooking ✔️Rules to Consider for Ayurvedic Diet ✔️An Introduction to Pitta Dosha ✔️Tastes that Pacify Pitta ✔️Tips to Set Up Your Ayurvedic Kitchen (utensils, spices, cooking oils, and other stuff) ✔️The Recipes (featuring soups, rice dishes, sabji, curries, raitas, chutneys, salads, sweets, beverages, and special Indian treats) ✔️Food Combining for Doshas ✔️Pitta Seasonal Guide (Ritucharya) ✔️Ayurvedic Diet FAQs All the recipes in this cookbook are traditional, time-tested over decades, and are based on Ayurvedic principles. They can aid a yogi's yoga practice by keeping the mind calm and are thus ideal for all yoga practitioners. The beauty is that the recipes are not only sattvic in nature but are also tasty and have that authentic Indian taste! Now don’t bother, claim your copy right away!!

Book Short Summary:

Caring is at the core of what nurses and other health professionals do. But caring encompasses more than simply looking after people’s physical health needs. People requiring any health service will have psychological needs that affect their feelings, thoughts, and behaviour. Good psychological care can even help improve physical health outcomes. An Introduction to Psychological Care in Nursing and the Health Professions explains and promotes the importance of psychological care for people when they become physically ill, giving a sound theoretical basis to ensure care is evidence-based. It encourages the reader to think about the effects of illness and disability on patients, and to understand what can be done to identify and minimise any difficulties they might be experiencing in these areas. The chapters cover: the meaning and elements of care and holistic care; a model of psychological care in practice; the personal qualities and skills of carers that best underpin psychological care delivery, and how these might be enhanced; the knowledge needed for effective psychological caregiving; psychological care as it might be practised in a range of health care settings. This text contains key learning points, practical activities, reflective exercises and case illustrations. It is ideal for student and practising nurses, and health professionals who would like to improve their care for patients in this essential area.

  • Pdf File: doctoring-traditions.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Like many of the traditional medicines of South Asia, Ayurvedic practice transformed dramatically in the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With Doctoring Tradition, Projit Bihari Mukharji offers a close look at that recasting, upending the widely held yet little-examined belief that it was the result of the introduction of Western anatomical knowledge and cadaveric dissection. Rather, Mukharji reveals, what instigated those changes were a number of small technologies that were introduced in the period by Ayurvedic physicians, men who were simultaneously Victorian gentlemen and members of a particular Bengali caste. The introduction of these devices, including thermometers, watches, and microscopes, Mukharji shows, ultimately led to a dramatic reimagining of the body. By the 1930s, there emerged a new Ayurvedic body that was marked as distinct from a biomedical body. Despite the protestations of difference, this new Ayurvedic body was largely compatible with it. The more irreconcilable elements of the old Ayurvedic body were then rendered therapeutically indefensible and impossible to imagine in practice. The new Ayurvedic medicine was the product not of an embrace of Western approaches, but of a creative attempt to develop a viable alternative to the Western tradition by braiding together elements drawn from internally diverse traditions of the West and the East.

Book Short Summary:

A guide to the Ayurvedic personality types, or doshas, with psychology-based advice on cultivating balance, from the author of The Ayurvedic Self-Care Handbook At the core of Ayurveda is an understanding that we are all made of the same materials—the five elements of ether (space), air, fire, water, and earth—and how you look, think, and feel can be traced back to your unique proportion of these elements at any given time. This is your dosha, the true essence of who you are. Knowing your dosha is the key to deeper self-knowledge, easier relationships, and a happier future. In The Seven Ways of Ayurveda, you’ll discover which type fits you best. Vata: creator, multitasker, artist Pitta: perfectionist, challenger, leader Kapha: peacemaker, nurturer, lover Vata-Pitta: performer, innovator, first responder Pitta-Kapha: guardian, moralist, observer Vata-Kapha: dreamer, supporter, conversationalist Tri-Dosha: proficient in all trades, well-rounded Then, you’ll identify your innate strengths (and their “shadow sides”); whether you’re out of balance (and what to do); how your unique type approaches work, love, travel, and more; and how to forge true, mutual understanding with friends and loved ones whose doshas may differ. When you know yourself better, you can take better care of yourself—and others, too.

An integrative approach to support your health and well-being While Western medicine often relies on a one-size-size-fits-all approach to treating depression, Ayurveda offers an individualized, holistic model that draws upon five thousand years of scientific knowledge and practice to address depression systemically--restoring balance and nourishing mind, body, and spirit. The Ayurvedic anti-depression protocols outlined in this book can work alone or in concert with conventional therapies to help you develop a tailored plan that meets your unique needs.

This book will empower you to create daily and seasonal routines using dietary adjustments, mind-body training, and herbal remedies to reawaken your body and cultivate the wisdom needed to heal from depression.

Book Short Summary:

Ayurveda, the science of life, holistic medicine offers a complete solution with medicines, diet and lifestyle. The radical shift occurred in defining health encourages the medical fraternity of modern times to look deeply into empirically evolved ayurvedic techniques for the maintenance of positive health. The recent WHO report says that 70% of the world population is using herbal medicines for their primary health care. In last decade the use of herbal medicines increased tremendously. Many books have been written on Ayurveda medicine but most of them for health professionals. There are few books which addresses the primary health care needs of layman. To fulfill this need, I wrote this book, containing simple and effective home remedies which are available in the local market and online stores. These home remedies have been practiced since more than 2000 years. I hope the readers will satisfy and will get perfect health by adopting the remedies, regime and diet described in this book.
