Ayurveda, Spirituality and Healing examines the changes undergone by the South Asian health-care tradition, Ayurveda, as a result of its assimilation into the Western holistic health milieu over the last four decades. It explores the ways in which the mind-body-spirit sector in the West, with its focus on seekership, spirituality, and self-empowerment through self-understanding, shapes Ayurvedaâe(tm)s interpretation, promotion and practice in modern transnational Anglophone contexts. As with other Eastern traditions that have gained popularity in the West in recent times, âe~globalisedâe(tm) Ayurveda has generated a host of competing discourses on what constitutes âe~authenticâe(tm) tradition, and whether Western forms of this tradition can be considered legitimate. This book makes a unique contribution to the scholarship on the subject by arguing that the new forms of Ayurveda in the Western holistic health milieu must be taken seriously, not dismissed as âe~inauthenticâe(tm), or measured against traditional South Asian forms of Ayurveda. These new manifestations reflect the particular concerns of âe~alternativeâe(tm) health practitioners in late-capitalist contexts in the West, who draw upon this tradition in creative and expedient ways to address the perceived needs of their times.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The classic guide to using Ayurveda to harness the healing power of the mind—now revised with updated medical research. Translated as “the knowledge of life span” in Sanskrit, Ayurveda is the 5,000-year-old medical system from ancient India that has been validated by modern breakthroughs in physics and medicine. Deepak Chopra’s Perfect Health is the original guide to applying the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to everyday life. Although we experience our bodies as solid, they are in fact more like fires that are constantly being consumed and renewed. We grow new stomach linings every five days, for instance. Our skin is new every five weeks. Each year, fully 98 percent of the total number of atoms in our bodies is replaced. Ayurveda gives us the tools to intervene at this quantum level, where we are being created anew each day. Ayurveda tells us that freedom from sickness depends on contacting our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. Perfect Health provides a complete step-by-step program of mind body medicine tailored to individual needs. A quiz identifies the reader's mind body type: thin, restless Vata; enterprising, efficient Pitta; tranquil, steady Kapha; or any combination of these three. This body type becomes the basis for a specific Ayurvedic program of diet, stress reduction, neuromuscular integration, exercise, and daily routines. The result is a total plan, tailor-made for each individual, to reestablish the body's essential balance with nature; to strengthen the mind body connection; and to use the power of quantum healing to transcend the ordinary limitations of disease and aging—in short, for achieving Perfect Health.

Life is full of challenges, both big and small. Spirituality is here to offer solutions. Over the course of his career as physician, teacher, and bestselling author, Deepak Chopra has received thousands of questions from people facing every kind of challenge. They have asked how to lead more fulfilling lives, how to overcome relationship problems and personal obstacles. What’s the best way to deal with a passive-aggressive friend? Can a stagnant career be jump-started? In a world full of distractions and stress, how does one find time for meditation? Hidden among all of these questions are answers waiting to be uncovered. In this groundbreaking book, Chopra shows you how to expand your awareness, which is the key to the confusion and conflict we all face. “The secret is that the level of the problem is never the level of the solution,” he writes. By rising to the level of the solution in your own awareness, you can transform obstacles into opportunities. Chopra leads the reader to what he calls “the true self,” where peace, clarity, and wisdom serve as guides in times of crisis. For Chopra, spirituality is primarily about consciousness, not about religious dogma or relying on the conventional notion of God. “There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness.” With practical insight, Spiritual Solutions provides the tools and strategies to enable you to meet life’s challenges from within and to experience a sense of genuine fulfillment and purpose.

Do you experience hot flashes, stomach acid, and loose bowel movements? Do you tend to be demanding, frustrated, angry, or intense? Is your skin ruddy and prone to rashes and eruptions? Are you often irritable or impatient? Is your hair prematurely gray or thinning? Do you feel discomfort in hot weather? If so, you need to balance your Pitta Dosha... Ayurveda, which derives from ancient Vedic scriptures, is a 5,000-year-old medical ideology and philosophy based on the idea that we are all made up of different types of energy. There are three Doshas in Ayurveda that describe the dominant state of mind/body: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. While all three are present in everyone, Ayurveda suggests that we each have a dominant Dosha that is unwavering from birth, and ideally an equal (though often fluctuating) balance between the other two. If Doshas are balanced, we are healthy; when they are unbalanced, we develop a disorder commonly expressed by skin problems, impaired nutrition, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are all important to our biology in some way, so no one is greater than, or superior to, any other. Each has a very specific set of basic functions to perform in the body. That said, when the Doshas are out of control, our well-being can be damaged. However, before we get into the particulars of each of the three Doshas, it is helpful to understand their basic nature and their wider function in the natural world. Each of the Doshas has its own special strengths and weaknesses, and with a little awareness, you can do a lot to remain healthy and balanced. You can use this series to adjust your lifestyles and routines in a way that supports your constitution. I’ve made a complete series of these three, one for each. This is the Pitta; the other two are also available. To Ayurveda, Pitta is one of the three Doshas—energetic forces of nature that make up the universe and everything within it, including us! Pitta is associated with the components of fire and water, but the former is more prominent. Together, they are the powerful power that controls the transformational processes of the body; metabolism and even the hormones of the body are believed to be regulated by Pitta. Pitta is the hottest, oiliest, and sharpest of the three Doshas of Ayurveda. When you feel overheated in any way, there may be an abundance of the Pitta Dosha inside your body. In this book, we’ll dive deeper into what Pitta means, what throws Pitta out of balance, and how to identify the Pitta Dosha in your environment, in yourself, and in others. With this book, I’m going to share with you everything you need to know in order to balance Pitta Dosha and use it to your overall vitality, joy, and well-being. Reading this you’ll discover: ✔️Pitta Characteristics ✔️Pitta Doshas and Sub-Doshas ✔️Disorders Caused by Pitta Imbalance ✔️What Causes Pitta Dosha or Imbalance ✔️Ways to Deal with Pitta Dosha ✔️Pitta-Stabilizing Lifestyle Tips ✔️Clarification on Pitta Dosha and Fasting ✔️The Relation Between Pitta Dosha and Cool Foods ✔️Guidance on Different Pitta Diets ✔️What Tastes to Favor for Pitta Balancing ✔️Foods that Pacify Pitta and What Foods to Avoid ✔️How to Eat for Pitta Balancing ✔️Pitta Friendly, Delicious Recipes ✔️Pitta Seasonal Guide ✔️Best Yoga Poses ✔️Essential Herbs ✔️Ideal Oil Massage for Pitta Balancing Just follow the book along, and you’ll reveal the easiest step-by-step routine to balance your Pitta Dosha by the end of it!
