BLURB:

Why do certain foods harm some people and help others?

Why do the results of a weight loss programme vary from individual to individual?

And why do some people fall sick more often than others?

The science of Ayurveda holds answers to these questions and many more. Its scriptures took a holistic approach to health by combining our lifestyle with our natural tendencies (which vary from one person to another).

This groundbreaking new work from Om Swami combines the yogic view of food as sattvic, rajasic and tamasic with the Ayurvedic perspective, and further relates it to the modern view of food as acidic and alkaline. This is also the first time Ayurvedic prakriti (vata, pitta and kapha) has been discussed in the context of yogic prakriti (sattvic, rajasic and tamasic) in a truly cohesive fashion.

The Wellness Sense is a simple, step-by-step handbook on how to take better care of yourself. Accessibly written, deeply researched and distilled from Om Swami’s own livid experience, The Wellness Sense puts your health and happiness in your hands.

Excerpt:

There are various ways to test pH levels but to tell you the truth that is an obsession in my view. Simply just eat a balanced diet. The definition of balance is that eighty percent of your diet should consist of alkaline foods and twenty percent with acidic. In the ideal world, one hundred percent of your diet should be alkaline because your body is already producing enough acids. For most people, however, it is not possible to go on a completely alkaline diet for a variety of reasons. So, go for the eighty-twenty rule in that case, that is, eighty percent alkaline and twenty percent acidic foods.

By following the dietary principles, your chances of remaining healthy grow exponentially. Is it possible to completely avoid the disease in our body, though? Or, more importantly, what actually causes disease? If I eat the proper foods according to my constitution, if I maintain an alkaline diet, does it guarantee I'll remain free of diseases? The answer is No. There's more to diseases than the food we intake. There's no doubt that your chances of falling sick are almost negligible if you use the eating-sense, yet, there's still a chance. And for that, we must have a holistic understanding of what causes diseases beyond food and how to avoid them. When I say, I'm sick, who is actually sick in me?

    1. Hi Richard,

      Hope your sister finds it useful. I myself used to suffer from chronic migraine for more than 15 years. No one could help. Only after reading this book, I started examining my own self and it reduced drastically.

      I have experienced disease and pain and know what it feels like when the modern science has no remedies but just a pill to pop in.

      This is not just a book, but a treasure you hold in your hands.
      I was so moved that I wanted to share it with everyone and hence this tour.
