Build Optimal Energy and Health in Body, Mind, and Spirit

Ever wondered why you're feeling out of balance, stressed-out, sick, and exhausted but still can't sleep? Western medicine often ignores the underlying issues that can lead to fatigue, illness, and disease, but there is a way to revitalize your body and mind without drugs or dangerous side effects. Ayurveda, the "science of life," is a complete wellness system that includes all that we associate with medical care -- prevention of disease, observation, diagnosis, and treatment -- as well as self-care practices that are generally absent from Western medicine. This truly holistic approach considers not just diet, exercise, and genetics but also relationships, life purpose, finances, environment, and past experiences. In this thorough and practical book, Michelle Fondin guides you gently through self-assessment questions designed to zero in on your needs and the best practices for addressing them, such as eating plans, addiction treatment, detoxification, and techniques for improving relationships. She outlines steps you can take, with minimal cost, to heal common ailments such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, excess weight, anxiety, and depression. These time-tested methods for body, mind, and spirit wellness offer benefits to anyone at any age.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A cancer diagnosis at age 28 inspired Fondin to explore Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old medical system developed in India that explores illness' root cause and how it originates in you. Combined with traditional treatments, Ayurveda helped Fondin get well, and she now outlines a multifaceted approach designed to help readers discover their own inner healing powers. She states that nearly all illnesses are preventable, identifying lifestyle as the primary culprit and the principle of spiritual, physical, and emotional wholeness as the root of health, and she uses the continuum of the wheel as an analogy for self-responsibility for wellness. The brief explanation of Ayurveda, covering seeking balance over imbalance, the stages of various maladies, and a Checklist for Health segues to advice for living one's dharma or life path. Chapters on physical, spiritual, and emotional health, healing wounds from the past, and maintaining healthy relationships, among other subjects, contain guidelines and exercises that, along with recommended resources, make this a comprehensive guide.--Scott, Whitney Copyright 2010 Booklist"
