Quatrième de couverture
A decade ago, Deepak Chopra, M.D., wrote the international bestseller, Perfect Health, the first practical guide to harnessing the healing power of the mind. Describing how breakthroughs in physics and medicine were underscoring the validity of a 5,000-year-old medical system from India known as Ayurveda, it went on to reveal how this ancient wisdom could be applied to everyday life. Now, in celebration of this classic work, this new edition has been revised and updated to include the very latest medical research.
Although we experience our bodies as solid, they are in fact more like fires that are constantly being consumed and renewed. We grow new stomach linings every five days, for instance; our skin is new every five weeks; each year, ninety-eight per cent of the total number of atoms in our bodies is replaced. Ayurveda gives us the tools to intervene at this quantum level, where we are being created anew each day. It also reveals how freedom from sickness depends on contacting our own awareness, bringing it into balance and then extending that balance to the body.
Perfect Health provides a complete step-by-step programme of mind-body medicine tailored to individual needs. A quiz identifies the reader's mind-body type: thin, restless Vata; enterprising, efficient Pitta; tranquil, steady Kapha: or any combination of these three. It is this body type that forms the basis of a specific Ayurvedic programme of diet, stress reduction, neuromuscular integration, exercise, and daily routines. The result is a total health plan that will re-establish the body's essential balance with nature, strengthen the mind-body connection, and use the power of quantum healing to transcend the ordinary limitations of disease and aging. In short, this is the ultimate guide to achieving Perfect Health.
DEEPAK CHOPRA has written twenty-six books, including the international bestseller The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. In 1999, Time magazine selected Dr. Chopra as one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century, describing him as 'the poet-prophet of alternative medicine'. He currently serves as CEO and founder of The Chopra Center for Well Being in La Jolla, California.--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
