By Chandra Chakraberty

Раритетное издание. Книга 1923 года издания, один из первых учебников по Аюрведе на английском языке. Аюрведу называют «матерью медицины». Аюрведа была впервые записана в Ведах – древнейших писаниях. Эта система оздоровления практикуется в повседневной жизни Индии на протяжении 5000 лет. Это одна из древнейших медицинских систем, которая оказала большое влияние на развитие арабской и европейской медицины. Аюрведа или “наука о жизни” учит, что болезнь есть разбалансирование различных энергий в теле человека. Она помогает восстановить равновесие между этими энергиями и таким образом поддерживать здоровье.
