McIntyre's (Complete Woman's Herbal) user-friendly subject guide is highly practical for both newcomers to ayurvedic healing, who require a detailed introduction, as well as veteran practitioners, who will find it a useful quick reference. The contents appear in four major segments and 18 total chapters. Covered are the practice's historical origins and principles, directions on how to determine one's constitution, an explanation of physiological processes as they relate to the body's humors, and treatment methods. Management plans are clearly explained, often via tables, and involve feasible dietary and activity alterations.
VERDICT A wonderful, functional guide for holistic and natural healing collections.
