About This Book
The Wisdom of Healing, by David Simon, M.D., is an engaging, thoroughly practical guide to the many benefits of mind body medicine, in particular those derived from the ancient Indian medical system known as Ayurveda. In Ayurveda, David Simon has found a system based on individuality--on our unique responses to food, exercise, stress, medicine, surgery, and a wide range of external factors. By using the mind body questionnaire that begins on page 51 of The Wisdom of Healing, you can establish your own mind body type and find a daily routine that is ideally suited to creating optimal health for you.
        
In these pages you will also learn how to use food as medicine; relaxation techniques; healing breath and neuromuscular exercises; techniques for detoxification, purification, and rejuvenation; and strategies for addressing such specific conditions as reproduction and pregnancy, aging, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and chronic pain. Intermingled with medical advice is the story of the author's journey as a young medical student, his disappointment with the traditional emphasis on the mechanics of disease and diagnosis, and his discovery of a medical science that focuses on the patient in its strategies for achieving and maintaining optimal health. By integrating this book's information into your life you will become as nature intended--restored to optimal health in body, mind, and spirit, free to experience the joy in every moment.

    Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives

    Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives
    A Holistic Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth
    A much-needed antidote to our modern, assembly-line approach to childbirth, this new book is designed as a guide for all who wish to participate in the wondrous process of bringing new life into the world. Its ideas derive from two sources: the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, with its emphasis on body, mind, and spirit, and the latest Western scientific prenatal research. By integrating the best information from these two very different perspectives, this remarkable book gives readers the tools to ensure that our children are nourished by thoughts, words, and actions from the very moment of conception. Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives is rich in practical information, including strategies to help enliven the body intelligence of unborn babies by nourishing each of their five senses, as well as through Ayurvedically balanced nutrition and eating with awareness. Specific yoga poses and meditation techniques reduce the mother’s stress and improve the infant’s emotional environment, as do tips for conscious communication with a partner. Exercises prepare parents for the experience of childbirth itself, followed by natural approaches to dealing with the first weeks of parenting, from healing herbs to enhancing your milk supply to coping with postpartum depression. Inspiring, expansive, and remarkably informative, this unique book from acclaimed experts in mind-body medicine will profoundly enhance the experience of pregnancy and birth for both parents and baby.
