How much do we know about Ayurveda - the world's most ancient cure and wellness science? My score would be a meager 3/10. Unfortunately, urban people like us grew up with a limiting conception of Ayurveda. This nine-chapter book is an absolute eye-opener in regards to this subject. The author, Dr. Narasimham Jammi, has earned a Ph.D. from the University of Utah in Biological Chemistry and then went on to do postdoctoral research at Stanford, explains the nitty-gritty of this ancient and potent treatment method. This 150-page book is a treasure trove and a must-have for every knowledge seeker. It provides vast knowledge about lost practices from our traditional lifestyle. The language is fluid, engaging, and not expository in the slightest. This book beautifully demonstrates the saying by David Frawley, "As long as we are not living in harmony with nature and our constitution, we cannot expect ourselves to be really healed. Ayurveda gives us the means.

Verdict: The book is worth treasuring.

Dr Jammi has written a wonderful and easy to read introduction to Ayurveda for everyone. Filled with wit and science it is a clear exposition of the passion that has driven this book into creation. As an expert in both the Ayurvedic aspects of healing and a researcher with global experience, Dr Jammi has shared his insights on an ancient method of healthful living. This book will be a great appetizer for those wanting to dive deep into

the banquet of medicinal knowledge that lies underutilized. I hope the future leads to an integral use of all that works for any malady. Future pandemics will greatly benefit from increased research into Ayurveda. This book has gone over many myths and also openly declares that quality assurance is critical and only trained practitioners should prescribe. Readers will surely enjoy this holistic approach using simple and low-cost methods to heal and comfort.

Student, doctor or just curious? You will not regret your decision to buy this wonderful testimony of applied Ayurveda. Dr. Jammi captured my attention, by taking me on a journey through the stories of his ancestors. The cultural aspects, knowledge, and wisdom, expressed through these stories, shaped a man with a great understanding of life and the ability to share this with his readers. Although this book is packed with knowledge and case studies, it showed me that the real value comes from "understanding". For knowledge might be a powerful heritage, but "understanding" is needed to create a better future.

A book that has something for everybody from children to adults. There is Science, there is Ayurveda, and a multitude of little stories from the Puranas all of which are intertwined beautifully and seamlessly. An amazing blend of Indian culture and science. One of the best books that I have read in recent times, which gives you a feeling of reading several books at the same time.
