This book is based on Ayurveda, the ancient healing science of India, by a Westerner first ever to obtain a degree in Ayurveda. It is meant to reintroduce modern man to 'walking with naked feet' through life to come back into contact with Nature. Although centuries old the concept of individual constitution is a new concept for the modern mind, a new way for all of us to understand our 'relationship' with nature. Ayurveda is above all meant for all people who by harmonizing themselves seek to act as harmonizing forces in the universe.
Ayurveda is the product of a civilisation which is deeply rooted in Mother Nature. Through this book we can overcome the Nature's ire and restore to vitality of natural health by shunning overweening, arrogant passion for self-indulgence. Nature is part of the individual, since we all are created from, exist in, and return to nature. Nature is always magnanimous, and She will be as generous to you as you are generous to yourself and to other beings. You cannot buy, beg, borrow, or steal health; it is Nature's gift to you. Actually all of us have a Mother in Nature and only She can lead us to happier and healthier life.
