    Good info on Ayurveda; Bad info on herbs, March 12, 2009

    This review is from: The Yoga of Herbs: An Ayurvedic Guide to Herbal Medicine (Paperback)

    I enjoyed the author’s description of basic Ayurvedic Medicine (TAM) principles and philosophy; as for the monographs of herbs and their actions not so much. I own the 2nd ed. and found many problems with the Materia Medica of the book. When the authors describe Basil (Ocinum spp.)they misrepresent the plant as Tulsi which is actually Holy Basil (Ocinum Sanctum)- one of the most used plants in TAM; the adaptogenic qualities of Tulsi are not present in other types of Basil. Another misrepresentation is Hibiscus (Hibiscus Rosa-Sinesis) for which they use the wrong species of plant (actually Hibiscus sabdariffa) and the wrong part of the plant used (the flower is not used as the book says but the calyx); Wikipedia also states the Hibiscus Rosa-Sinesis flower is used to shine shoes and in devotions to the god Devi, not specifically for beverages as the Hibiscus sabdariffa.
    Yes I did like the descriptions of TAM doshas and philosophy but if you wish to try the herbs mentioned in the book I recommend finding another book like those by Tillotson, Murray, Pizzarno, Gladstar, Hoffman or even Penny C. Royal for more dependable herbal monographs.

    This review is from: The Yoga of Herbs: An Ayurvedic Guide to Herbal Medicine (Paperback)

    An excellent guide to Ayurvedic medical applications of herbs. This book includes a good introduction to Ayurvedic principles, management of the doshas and good summary charts for over 270 as well as detailed sections on 108 of the most common herbs and special Oriental herbs. Invaluable for the herbalist interested in Ayurveda.

    The best herb book i’ve ever read., May 18, 2004

    This review is from: The Yoga of Herbs: An Ayurvedic Guide to Herbal Medicine (Paperback)

    This is the best, bar none. It goes into detail with each herb, telling us the energetics of the herbs, in terms of ayurveda-the oldest system of popular standardized medicine in the world. Ayurveda literally means science of life. There is indepth information on the physical and psychological effects of each herb. It even tells you how the herbs relate to the chakras. Dr. Vasant Lad is the countrys’ leading authority on Ayurveda (besides Deepak Chopra)and he got together with David Frawley-a very learned Vedic scholar to write this book. Together they make magic happen. This book is more than worth the money .
