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.

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.
