The Wellness Sense
by Om Swami

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Health & Fitness

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Why do certain foods harm some people and help others?

Why do the results of a weight loss programme vary from individual to individual?

And why do some people fall sick more often than others?

The science of Ayurveda holds answers to these questions and many more. Its scriptures took a holistic approach to health by combining our lifestyle with our natural tendencies (which vary from one person to another).

This groundbreaking new work from Om Swami combines the yogic view of food as sattvic, rajasic and tamasic with the Ayurvedic perspective, and further relates it to the modern view of food as acidic and alkaline. This is also the first time Ayurvedic prakriti (vata, pitta and kapha) has been discussed in the context of yogic prakriti (sattvic, rajasic and tamasic) in a truly cohesive fashion.

The Wellness Sense is a simple, step-by-step handbook on how to take better care of yourself. Accessibly written, deeply researched and distilled from Om Swami’s own livid experience, The Wellness Sense puts your health and happiness in your hands.

EXCERPT ONE:

My body needed rest but I could afford anything except time off. My projects, teams and clients needed me everyday in five different time zones and the immense stress at work left me gasping for breath. Exercising at the gym, playing badminton, eating organic food and taking supplements only helped a little. The fact remained that whenever seasons changed I fell sick.

At times I would look at those who remained mostly healthy regardless of the pressure at work or challenges at home. Most of these healthy people even ate unhealthy, yet they remained mostly fit. I seriously wondered what was the secret of their health. There was none, really.

In agreement with Ayurveda, I came to the conclusion that each one of us is truly different and some of us are more prone to certain diseases than others. I accepted the fact that asthma was my way of life. Fast forward a few years, however, I renounced the material world and becoming a monk, went to the Himalayas. I stayed in the woods and caves for nearly thirteen months, and while there, I didn't even so much as contract common cold let alone any major ailments or asthma. Surviving on one frugal meal a day and sometimes just on snow, when I emerged out of my hut many months later after intense meditation, I felt fitter and stronger than ever before. I meditated in open fields during spring and in caves during winters, but there was no sign of allergy.

I had never felt this before: being completely free of any physical ailment for months at a stretch. This experience challenged my earlier conclusion. I figured it's never too late to take control of our wellbeing and no matter what our genetic disposition, we can attain near perfect health.

  19. I believe my dominate is Kapha Predominant Type. ALthough I know that it's important to be active on a daily basis due to Kapha types are prone to sluggishness, depression, and being overweight, I find it hard to get motivated. I have made some changes. I recently read that tea with dried ginger and lemon is a great pick-me-up for Kaphas, so I have incorporated that into my daily routine. My biggest downfall is SUGAR. I can't get free of it! I crave it constantly! Would love to win this book, hopefully I can learn something new!
