Introduction from Nancy Lonsdorf M.D.
.Getting healthy requires self-effort. This booklet is for those whowish to take more control of their health in their day to day life. If you are ready to be proactivefor your health, then you are ready for Ayurveda. I believe this booklet will provide you with theknowledge you are searching for to naturally and systematically fulfill your health goals.There are two principles that guided me in organizing this Ayurvedic knowledge for you.
1. The knowledge must relate to your personal life at every step.
Each section is personalized for you through questionnaires that help you assess your state of balance or health, and shows you how that aspect of Ayurvedic knowledge can deeply influenceyour health and well-being. Once you understand your symptoms more deeply, and what lifestylefactors are causing them, it is easier to make changes. I feel it is important to have personalquestionnaires at each step to inspire you to move away from the symptoms of imbalance andtoward the experience of health.
2. The knowledge must sequentially lead you through steps of regaining health that I woulduse if you were a client in my office
Many books on Ayurveda overwhelm readers with too much information, provided in a sequencethat is not practical for implementation in daily life. My patients have educated me over the yearsas to what recommendations have priority and how much a person can reasonably do in his or herlife.I wish I could meet all of you in person and develop a personal professional relationship withyou. That not being possible in most cases, I feel this booklet is the best attempt I can make toshare this health-giving knowledge with as many people as possible. I am glad you are a seekerof health and wish you the greatest success in your endeavor to live the happiest, healthiest lifepossible.Wishing you the best of health!Nancy Lonsdorf M.D.
