Ayurveda, Secrets of healing is a seminal work, the basis of which is deeply rooted in the scriptural knowledge behind Ayurveda. Maya Tiwari demonstrates in meticulous detail the power of our own nature-based memories as the primal force of human healing. She introduces the ancient secrets of sadhanas, i.e. spiritual practices, therapies, remedies, diet and natural biorhythms--which, when applied, awaken the cognitive memories necessary to achieve our deepest personal healing. Secrets of Healing is the most complete offering of the original cleansing and rejuvenative therapies, Pancha Karma, first taught and practiced by the ancient Vedic seers. In this definitive work, Maya Tiwari is the first author to reveal these sophisticated and timeless healing processes in a way which is both comprehensive and readily adaptable to modern western culture.

Ayurveda has gained an incredible amount of popularity in the West in the last 10 years. Few people realize that this natural science of health and well being has a more than 5000 year recorded history. Ayurveda has lasted this long because it has real, lasting value as a paradigm for health and wellness. Of particular interest is the classification of people according to "body types" and the tailoring of the therapeutic action to the constitutional type so indicated. We also have a number of other traditional health modalities represented including the Chinese and Tibetan models. This present volume is the first of the Todarananda Ayurveda Saukhyam Series. It deals with the portion of the Materia Medica which is generally known as Nighantu. The Materia Medica of Ayurveda represents a rich storehouse of knowledge of drugs based on centuries of experience. Scientists, research workers, physicians and students interested in Ayurveda will appreciate this volume as it is translated into a language which is generally understood by all.
This book gives readers a new perspective in the practice of Ayurveda. It is not meant to replace what exists at present, but to be complimentary. This system is not new, but is offered as a revitalized approach to Ayurveda. The thesis put forth by the author in this text is that it is not constitution, as modern Ayurveda contends, but rather Seven Disease Tendencies which are fundamental to the treatment of disease. In fact, this approach is mentioned by Charaka, the father of Ayurveda, in his CHARAKA SAMHITA, the authoritative texts of Ayurveda.
