Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of healthcare known to man. It means, literally, 'science of life', and according to ayurveda, just about everything is connected to your state of health. Written by Anna Selby, in conjunction with the European Ayurveda Health Spa, Complete Ayurveda Workbook interprets this ancient holistic system to suit the demands of our hectic lifestyles and sets you on the path to health and harmony. Part One explains the principles of ayurveda and shows you how to identify your own prakriti (your doshic make-up) by following a simple questionnaire. Part Two teaches you how to correct doshic imbalances by incorporating ayurvedic spa principles into your daily life through diet, exercise and meditation. Part Three reveals how you can maintain the inner balance of body and soul by embracing European Ayurveda's easy-to-follow principles in your home and workplace. This practical book will not only empower you to take control of your health and well-being, it will guide you towards a greater understanding of yourself as an individual and inspire you to get the most out of life every day.

inger pickle
Eating ginger pickle half an hour before meals stimulates and balances the digestive system. This helps you extract maximum nutrition from the food and reduces the chances of undigested food (ama) building up in the system. Vatas should take it before both lunch and dinner, while Kaphas should take it in the morning too. Pittas also benefit from ginger pickle, unless there is a severe excess of pitta in the system or in cases of stomach upset and diarrhoea.
For one day
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp honey
pinch salt
2 heaped tsp grated fresh ginger
1 Add the lemon juice, honey and salt to the ginger.
2 Mix together well.
3 Take 1 tsp of the pickle as a digestive aid twenty to thirty minutes before lunch and the evening meal.
For one week
Half of a 454g (1lb) jam jar of fresh ginger
Lemon juice to cover the ginger
Honey as required
Salt as required
Mix all the ingredients together as above. Store in a refrigerator and stir before taking, as before.

As complementary and holistic therapies have become increasingly popular, most of us have become aware that a beneficial diet and exercise are vital for maintaining good health. In addition to these disciplines ayurveda includes those that might initially seem quite unconnected with your health, for example meditation, the way you pace your day, breathing techniques and establishing a different relationship with nature. According to ayurveda, however, just about everything is connected to your state of health.

Kaphas can skip breakfast if they don’t feel hungry and they can also have coffee in the mornings – Kaphas are the only one of the doshas to benefit from this stimulation.
