Susan Weis-Bohlen for The Beginner’s Guide to Home Remedies

January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Beginner’s Guide to Ayurvedic Home Remedies is a much-needed westernized guide to Ayurvedic remedies that addresses 21st century health concerns, including colds and flu, digestive disorders such as IBS, arthritis, menopause, immunity, and aging well.

The Beginner’s Guide to Ayurvedic Home Remedies is a modernized and accessible guide to this ancient system of health and well-being.

Ayurveda is the oldest medical system in the world. It has been used for over 5,000 years. Yet, for all of its incredible healing wisdom, it can often seem complicated or hard to translate for today’s audience. Free from esoteric information that you don’t want or need, this guide gives you simplified, need-to-know information on finding your dosha and the best ayurvedic approach for you.

The Beginner’s Guide to Ayurvedic Home Remedies includes practical remedies for the most common modern ailments/health concerns, including immunity, quality sleep, hormone balance, pain relief, longevity, and aging well.

Each remedy gives a three-part action plan of herbal remedies, food, and lifestyle practices to restore balance:

Struggling with pain? Eating an anti-inflammatory diet, taking turmeric root, and incorporating Vata-reducing practices may bring relief.
Fighting off a cold? Licorice root tea can help thin mucus while supportive yoga poses open up the chest and airways.
Is your digestion sluggish? Look to your breathing patterns and incorporate regular movement breaks into your day.

Filled with practical and easy remedies that you can use right away, The Beginner’s Guide to Ayurvedic Home Remedies will have you healthier in body, mind, and spirit.
