Description

Transform your relationship with habits, lifestyle, health, and disease using Dr. Kavitha Chinnaiyan s remarkable approach to health. The Heart of Wellness shows you how to optimize the workings of the body and mind so that the bliss of your true nature can be revealed. Presented in two parts, this book begins by exploring the nature of disease: the causative and risk factors, the role of diet, exercise, and medication, and how Eastern and Western medical practices can come together. A holistic practice is then outlined, based on the author s successful Heal Your Heart Free Your Soul programme, that will guide you toward good health and better living.

Review quote

Praise:



"[The Heart of Wellness] is a must-read for anyone who wants to truly understand what it means to live whole-heartedly--regardless of one's state of health."--Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age



"Along with her expert modern medical knowledge, [Kavitha] has brought compassion, gratitude, and Vedic wisdom in a clinical, helpful way to bring about total heath."--Vasant Lad, BAMS, MASc, Ayurvedic physician and author of The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies



"Provides a welcome paradigm shift in how we approach health, wellness, chronic disease, and for that matter, life."--Barry A. Franklin, PhD, FACSM, MAACVPR, FAHA, director of Preventive Cardiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation at William Beaumont Hospital



"Once in a generation a book appears that defines a new paradigm in its field. The Heart of Wellness is that book for our generation."--Joel K. Kahn, MD, FACC, clinical professor of medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine and author of The Plant-Based Solution (Sounds True, 2018)



"Heart of Wellness is a perfect blend of Vedic Wisdom with latest Medical Science. Dr. Chinnaiyan has created a much-needed template for the true application of Vedic Sciences in Integrative Medicine. Kudos!"--Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar BAMS, MD, author of Change Your Schedule Change Your Life (Harper Collins, 2018)



"What sets Dr. Chinnaiyan's work apart from other books is the vital additional message that "we are not our body-mind." That is, while the wisdom of traditions such as Ayurveda do promote and sustain the health of the body-mind through diet and lifestyle, their ultimate value is the recognition of the primacy of Consciousness and capacity to cultivate awareness beyond the body-mind, of the Self, the true foundation of wellbeing."--Paul J. Mills, PhD, director and professor of family medicine and public health at UC San Diego's Center of Excellence for Research and Training in Integrative Health



"The Heart of Wellness details how the body can be an ally to self-inquiry, not an impediment. I recommend this unique book, whether your interest is physical health or spiritual enlightenment, or both."--Dr. Greg Goode, PhD, author of After Awareness, The Direct Path, and Standing as Awareness



"[This book] harnesses the power of our mind, senses, and spirit, the discovery of latent bliss, and admirably refutes our endless seeking of material things and desires."--Barry A. Franklin, PhD, FACSM, MAACVPR, FAHA, director of Preventive Cardiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation at William Beaumont Hospital
