Student Ayurvedic book Review/resources

The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies

Dr Vasant Lad

My first book on Ayurveda and I still reference it 12 years later. From the Elements to the Doshas,  Food Lists and Kitchen Home Remedies, this book also includes homemade herbal formulas.

Ayurvedic Cooking for Self-Healing

Dr Vasant & Usha Lad

Go directly to the Kitchari  recipe and enjoy! This is another book with many dog-eared pages. There is much information about Ayurveda provided in this book but more a treasure trove of yumminess. Enjoy! 

Eat, Taste, Heal

 by Thomas Yarema, Daniel Rhoda, et al. 

Again, providing a lot of information about Ayurveda, the Doshas, Tastes and Favor Lists, etc. this book offers MANY recipes and colored photographs of Chef Johnny's creations. Just delicious!

Misc Resources

Mahanarayana Oil

I have been using this Ayurvedic Pain Oil for 12 years now. It is warming, smells earthy and will likely stain white clothes as it contains Turmeric. Very soothing. 

My favorite brand is Banyan Botanicals  contains no milk and consistent.
