"Ayurveda : A Way of Life is an easy-to-understand, comprehensive guide for assimilating the fundamentals of Ayurveda—India's ancient life science and system of holistic health care—into our modern, daily lives. Most people are familiar with the three-humor constitutional types that form the basis for Ayurvedic treatment. This book is uniquely important because the constitutional types—and their combinations—are clearly explained so readers can create their own balance.
"Dr. Vinod Verma received a Ph.D. in Reproduction Biology from the Panjab University in India and a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the University of Paris. She went on to do advanced research at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland and the Max-Planck Institute in Freiburg, Germany. At the height of her career as a medical researcher, Dr. Verma came to realize that the modern approach to health care is non-holistic, and that more attention is often directed to curing the disease rather than maintaining proper health. As a response to this lack of attention to the conservation of the health of individuals, Dr. Verma founded NOW, the New Way Health organization currently housed at the Noida Center near Delhi, India.
"Dr. Verma has had numerous scientific papers published in international journals. Her eight books on Ayurveda and Yoga are published in various European languages. She has made a film on Ayurveda in collaboration with German television and this film has been shown in 130 languages in 100 different countries including India." No. 20552
"Dr. Vinod Verma teaches Ayurveda in a way that I have never seen before; simple, easy to understand and apply to daily life! She starts off by defining what the 5,000 yr. old philosophy and practice is about, then moves on to define the tridosha (vata, pitta, kapha)theory, allowing the reader to determine which type they fall under, then moves on to discuss numerous techniques that bring the reader to an improved quality of life based on mind, body and spirit. What also impresses me about this author is that she doesn't sound overly "new age-ish," but reveals herself as intelligent, well-spoken and knowledgable. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in a more natural approach to total health." - Melanie Schurr from USA
