Ayurveda is perhaps the oldest medical tradition and is still practiced all over the world by millions of people. Its origins are lost in time and over the centuries it has exercised an indisputable influence on Chinese and Tibetan medicine, and most likely on Western medicine. Its most evident trait is a close union between spirituality and humanity and its practice is inseparable from the philosophy, religiosity, customs and traditions of the populations that have always inhabited the Indian continent. In this book, the author, a psychiatrist with a degree from Yale, presents its history, evolution, foundations and practice, with particular attention to the balance of the organism and the dietary aspect, one of the cornerstones of Ayurvedic therapy. .
