The advice in this book is based on the body-typing system of Ayurveda, India's traditional system of healing. Yoga and meditation are well known elements of Ayurveda, but fewer people know about the body type diet and how it affects physical, emotional and mental health. The three body types, or doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, reflect and affect everything from the health of our skin to the state of our finances. This book answers questions such as Why can't I lose that last bit of weight? Why is digestion so sensitive to raw food? Why do I get angry so quickly? Why can't I tolerate hot spices? It also contains recipes and stories from people whose lives have changed after implementing the body-type diet.
