It shows just how simple and practical a body-balancing seasonal lifestyle can be, helping you beat stress, lose excess weight, and feel energized and positive every day.Ayurveda for Modern Life guides you through the process of determining your dosha type and teaches you how to eat for your own dosha and make your body feel light, vital, energized, and well again. This ultimate guide to living the Ayurveda way also includes expert advice from leading nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik, TCM practitioner Annee de Mamiel, and the founder of The Organic Pharmacy, Margo Marrone.
