Ayurveda, which was first documented in Rig Veda and Atharva Veda has the eternal wisdom for health and healing. Its principles are valid beyond space and time. The book is written to promote the scientific wisdom of Ayurveda for prevention of ailments with detoxification, appropriate lifestyle and purification of the body and the mind. Ayurveda takes into consideration our internal, external, social and cosmic environment.
In today's world Ayurvedic wisdom is extremely valuable, as most of the prevalent ailments are our own creation. Here is a little citation from the book:
"What happened that tragic night is happening to all of us each day and we accumulate the same intensity of toxins in our body in about thirty years as the victims had in one night in Bhopal. In other words, we are victimising ourselves to a great tragedy due to ignorance."
Based on Author's lecture in Germany with Sächsiche Landesapothekerkammer, Dresden, the book provides an overview of Ayurveda to a layman and endless benefits of its practice.
This book is also published in German by Sheema Verlag.

About the Author

Along with a doctorate degree in reproduction biology in India, Dr. Verma studied Neurobiology in Paris University and obtained a second doctorate. She pursued advanced research at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda (USA) and the Max-Planck Institute in Freiburg, Germany. At the peak of her career in medical research in a pharmaceutical company in Germany, she realised that the modern approach to health care is basically fragmented and non-holistic. Besides, we are directing all our efforts and resources to cure disease rather than maintaining health. In response, Dr. Verma founded The New Way Health Organisation (NOW) in 1986 to spread the message of holistic living, preventive methods for health care and to promote the use of mild medicine and various self-help therapeutic measures.
Dr. Verma grew up with a strong familial tradition of Ayurveda with a grandmother who had enormous Ayurvedic wisdom and was a gifted healer. She has studied Ayurveda in the traditional Guru-shishya style with Acharya Priya Vrat Sharma of the Benares Hindu University for 23 years.
Dr. Verma is an ardent researcher and is working hard to compile the living tradition of Ayurveda and spread it in the world through her books and other activities. She has published twenty three books on yoga, Ayurveda, Women and Companionship. The books are published in various languages of the world. Besides, she has published numerous scientific articles. Several other books are in preparation. She lectures extensively, teaches in Europe for several months a year, trains students at her two centres in India and gives radio and television programmes. A film on Ayurveda with her was made by German television in 1995 and was shown in 100 countries, in 130 languages. It was the first film on Ayurveda.
Dr. Verma has founded Charaka School of Ayurveda to train interested people with genuine Ayurvedic education so that they can further impart the knowledge of Ayurvedic way of life and save people from becoming a victim of charlatanry in Ayurveda. She is doing several research projects on medicinal plants and their combination in the form of remedies. She is the founder and chairperson of The Ayurveda Health Organisation, which is a charitable trust for distributing and promoting Ayurvedic remedies and yoga therapy in rural areas of India. She does lectures and workshops for school children in the rural and remote areas of the Himalayas to promote wisdom of traditional science and medicine.
