Reviews

"In this timely book, Vatsala Sperling takes us back to a preindustrial age when we lived according to the cycles of nature and shows us that it is once again possible to restore vibrant and radiant health by following the practices outlined in this lovely book. This should be required reading for anyone interested in Ayurvedic dietary principles and lifestyle." * Marianne Teitelbaum, D.C., bestsellling author of Healing the Thyroid with Ayurveda *
"Vatsala Sperling has gathered a lifetime of cultural influence, serious study, and daily practice into this book. I have sat at Vatsala's table and eaten her food. She knows how to create a life-affirming, healthy, peaceful oasis and offers wisdom and guidance on how to accomplish exactly that. Ayurveda means 'science of life.' In this remarkably thorough work, Vatsala provides all the knowledge required to bring life into your kitchen and your home. This is beautiful stuff." * Christopher S. Kilham, author of The Five Tibetans and The Whole Food Bible *
"In Ayurvedic Reset Diet Vatsala Sperling presents practical tools and authentic Ayurvedic guidance with precision and insight. The book is replete with practical methods that one can integrate into everyday life with ease to achieve better health and wellness." * Shubhraji, founder of Namah Vedanta Center and author of In the Lotus of the Heart *
"The Ayurvedic Reset Diet is an easy-to-read guide to using basic Ayurvedic principles to achieve health. Most people, especially in the West, have been conditioned to eating in ways that actually rob them of vibrant health and often lead to illness. This book offers a way out of that routine. Vatsala explains very clearly how and why to follow simple dietary guidelines to recover health in a very down-to-earth way. By explaining the rationale for the guidelines, the author makes it even easier to apply them. This is one of those books that can make a big difference for anyone motivated to achieve better health. I recommend it highly." * Alan V. Schmukler, chief editor of Homeopathy 4 Everyone *
"I have met many doctors--allopathic, Ayurvedic, and naturopathic--and the best have one thing in common: they were raised by healers. They grew up in a living tradition, imbibing everyday wisdom from a parent or grandparent. Vatsala falls into this category and seamlessly combines her medical knowledge with traditional know-how. For those of us who didn't have the good fortune to be raised in such an environment, this book provides the next best thing." * Simon Chokoisky, author of The Five Dharma Types *
