ABOUT THE BOOK:

Forced by cancer to reexamine and redirect her life, Maya Tiwari left a highly successful New York design career and returned to her native India to study Ayurvedic medicine. Her book, a profound but practical testament to the healing power of balanced living, shows how Ayurveda’s ancient principles of health can help you achieve the highest levels of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

The traditional form of medicine in India for more than five thousand years, Ayurveda relies primarily on the proper use of foods and herbs to maintain  or restore the body’s natural state of balance. While Ayurvedic healing has in recent years become increasingly well known in the West, Maya Tiwari  is the first author to provide us with a comprehensive working guide to Ayurveda as a way of life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Maya Tiwari was born and raised in a traditional Hindu home in British Guiana (now Guyana). After her recovery from cancer, she returned to her native roots in the Vedas, and became a devout student of Ayurveda and Vedanta. Now a veteran teacher of the centuries-old healing art, Maya gives seminar throughout the United States. She is a coauthor of Diet for Natural Beauty.
