Vaidya Atreya Smith
Ayurvedic Nutrition is a clear guide to the complicated field of nutrition. Every day, increasing numbers of people are turning to the ancient health system of Ayurveda to restore balance and well-being in their lives. While it is easy to implement Ayurveda, its concepts and Sanskrit terms are often confusing.
In Ayurvedic Nutrition, however, Atreya has written the most accessible book on Ayurveda to date. For anyone who has struggled with one-size-fits-all diet fads, this book offers a welcome relief with its comprehensive approach to nutrition adapted to your unique body type.
Beginning with a self-test to determine your specific metabolic and psychological profile, the book emphasizes the importance of balance among all levels of the healing process – mind, body, and spirit. It then presents clear guidelines for choosing foods and making lifestyle choices to support a natural, healthy state and avoid those practices that disrupt natural metabolic balance. Ayurvedic Nutrition then provides a profile-specific, flexible 21-Day Plan to incorporate dietary and lifestyle changes sensibly. Most important, the Ayurvedic approach takes into account the many factors ignored by other programs that determine an optimal state of harmony and health for each individual.
Drawn from the authors twenty-five years of practicing natural medicine, the book is highlighted by case studies, which illuminate the healing and balancing powers of Ayurveda. From weight loss to the reversal of disease, the programs outlined in this practical and inspirational book will help anyone recover natural rhythms and restore inherent balance.
“Ayurvedic Nutrition opens up the world of Ayurveda and its invaluable wisdom to everyone - from novices to those who have been practicing for some time.”
“I am inspired by your highly practical approach and your efforts to bring Vedic concepts to the West in its totality, without diluting it. I am amazed by your ability to express Ayurveda in the most holistic way.”
“....it is always a pleasure for me to find a work on Ayurveda that eschews pomposity, and seasons its prescriptions with the levity of wit. I enjoyed Ayurvedic Nutrition for its topicality, for its focus on providing readers with tools for transformation, and above all for its tone. Even on topics where his convictions are decided and deeply held, such as the wisdom of eliminating meat from one’s daily diet....”
"Vaidya Atreya Smith is known to me as one of the few authentic western experts in the field of Ayurveda. His presentation of Ayurvedic material, in his books as well as his teaching material, forms a valuable contribution to the study of Ayurveda as it presents a modern and applied view on Ayurveda without losing any of the original classical principles."
"Atreya presents the wonderful system of Ayurvedic nutrition with remarkable clarity, simplicity, and finesse, and makes its wisdom accessible to everyone in daily life."
