Introductory books for Ayurveda/Tibetan Medicine?

Post by BrianG » Sun Jul 19, 2015 8:18 am

I'm trying to develop the diet side of my practice. Anyone know of any good introductory books that have information that is well sourced, and useful to a Buddhist practitioner?

Do you know how different that book is from this other item: Tibetan Medical Seminar: On Birth, Life, and Death?

No, sorry.

For ayurvedic medicine, I like this:

The Yoga of Herbs: An Ayurvedic Guide to Herbal Medicine ( David Frawley, Vasant Lad)

It's not about diet per se, but there are few valuable pages about the ayurveda system and the herbs and spices are nicely documented.

There are also many resources on the net, probably you will need to cover these bases:

- determine your body type (dosha)
- get a list of foods advisable for your body type
- adjust for other factors (season, age, geographical location, physical effort)
- combine the ingredients and get cooking

I've read various resources on the topic, if you need to find something more specific, feel free to PM me, I might have an idea.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I'll give it a read and see where that leaves me.
