Book Review The Way of Ayurvedic Herbs by Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa and Michael Tierra [Book Review]

Prabuddha Bharata or Awakened India 118 (11):649-50 (2013)

Swami Narasimhananda
Prabuddha Bharata
This book contains some valuable appendices that present a synopsis of therapies, a list of vegetable juices helpful in detoxification, and even recipes of some Ayurvedic delicacies! A glossary clarifies technical terms and the bibliography, index, and endnotes make the work useful for serious students, practitioners, and researchers. With so much information packed in a compact volume, it truly is ‘the most complete guide to natural healing and health with traditional Ayurvedic herbalism’, as the subtitle of the book claims. It is a welcome addition to the slowly increasing literature in English about Ayurveda. Such guidebooks help bring back Ayurveda to its lost glory.
