Important Chinese and special Ayurvedic herbs are introduced. Beautiful diagrams and charts, as well asdetailed glossaries, appendices and index are included.

The term 'yoga' has many traditional meanings. In Ayurveda, the medical science of India, yoga refers to the ìright usageî and ìright combinationî of herbs. A special combination of substances designed to bring about a specific effect upon the body or mind is thus called a 'yoga.' This coordinated or integrated usage of herbs was based upon the ancient Ayurvedic science of herbal energetics. In this is a system for determining the qualities and powers of herbs according to the laws of nature, so that herbs can be used objectively and specifically according to individual conditions. A yogic usage of herbs implies such an harmonic application of the potencies of herbs.

In this book, for the first time, this Ayurvedic herbal science is applied to western herbs, as well as to a few major oriental herbs, both Indian and Chinese. It is the purpose of this book not to present Ayurveda in the distance, as something foreign or ancient, but to make it
a practically applied system of herbalism.
