Describes what holistic health is and how to achieve optimum health through cleansing, nourishing, exercising and meditation
Written in 1978 by Swami Rama, the founder of the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy, this book acts as a blueprint for a holistic (the study of the entire being) approach to health. Swami Rama's education ranged from monkhood in the Himalayas to studies in both Japan and Europe as a young man, and his intention is to bridge the gap between ancient Eastern teachings and modern scientific approaches. The text reads more like an essay on the secrets to good health than a step-by-step handbook. Though there are specific practices covered in detail, such as cleansing, nourishing and exercise, the book's main goal is to address the connection between good physical health and good mental and spiritual health. Swami Rama utilizes Ayurveda (a form of medicine and diet to control the aging process) and yoga as the basis for his preventative medicinal philosophies. Yoga is defined by Swami Rama as not just the physical practice, but also self-awareness. The physical practices of yoga and diet, while necessary for good health, are only a small part of the battle. In addition to the control of mental, emotional and spiritual health, Swami Rama stresses the ideal of "self-training"--the ability to find the healing powers within each of us. This is a perfect introduction for those newly interested in holism, as well as a mindful reminder guide for those already on a holistic path.
