What is this Book about?

In this book, we discuss Dinacharya, an ancient practice in Indian Ayurvedic Medicine that consists of a daily routine that helps to establish balance in one’s constitution.

Dinacharya is about carrying out various practices routinely to regularize your biological clock, aid digestion, absorption and assimilation, promote physical and mental balance, health, self-esteem, discipline, peace, happiness, and longevity.

We start the book by discussing the general characteristics of Ayurveda, Dinacharya, the Three Doshas, and the use of oils in Ayurveda.

We then move on to describing the Dinacharya routines, namely the early morning routine, the daytime routine, and the evening routine.

In the section about specific Dinacharya activities, you’ll find detail descriptions about the individual practices and modalities.

And finally, at the end of the book, you’ll find a supplementary section that gives additional info about closely related topics.

This book is not a training course or workshop but aims at providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the topic presented.
