This self-help guide for women by leading Ayurvedic teacher Atreya shows women how to tailor a treatment plan that is exactly right for coping with health problems such as PMS, pre-menopausal symptoms, and osteoporosis.
Ayurvedic Healing for Women' addresses the need to treat the root cause of feminine disturbances rather than accepting the myth that symptoms of discomfort, pain and emotional swings are normal throughout life. Ayurveda is the best healing model to treat the root cause of symptoms by treating constitutionally, i.e., treating the whole person as an individual. Ayurveda has been successfully using these therapeutic methods for the last 5000 years.
Atreya presents an modern view of women's treatments according to Ayurveda covering not only physical remedies, but psychological insights as well. A practical full treatment section using common North American and European herbs forms the majority of the text. This book also disputes many of the common myths of menopause, HRT and offers safe alternatives. Included are a variety of herbal formulas to support a healthy and trouble free life - for women of all ages. Case histories clarify methodology and support the authors many years as a practitioner.

"Although I was new to the study of Ayurveda, with this book I found the right tool to cause a profound improvement in my health. The system seemed complex at first, but I soon realized one doesn't have to master it in order to begin applying its principles. Even without delving into the use of herbal formulas, I found much information here in terms of food choices and lifestyle that I could understand and implement immediately. The author explains that Ayurveda is an understanding of the nature of things, and the individual ". . . within the context of the whole or Mother Nature." Everything is unique yet interrelated, and ". . . Ayurveda strives to understand how your organism functions, how your metabolism functions, how your mind functions." He explains Ayurveda's many-faceted approach to understanding disease as a progression from prolonged imbalance, and then provides the knowledge for recognizing imbalances in your own body and positive approaches for correcting them . For me the most useful information came from the author's attention to diet and lifestyle as major contributing factors. Realizing the connection between certain foods and specific health issues in individual body types gave me the power to target my own areas of concern - and it works! I noticed changes right away and even more profoundly a few weeks down the road. Ayurveda is a wide system of study and there is a lot of information in this book. I often refer back to it. If you are looking for ways to help yourself to health, and have wondered how your lifestyle and dietary habits specifically affect your body, you will know yourself (and treat yourself !) much better after reading this book." - Reviewer from San Pedro, California
