I thank Chopra for this wonderful and succinct book on how one easily can manage to maintain a good diet and lifestyle.
This is the book that helped me start healing my IBS when nothing else would and I couldn't eat anything and had lost 50 pounds in 6 months. It's basically about eating according to ayurvedic principles; his quiz on how to determine your dosha is the best I've found anywhere. (I also recommend Heather Van Vorous' books and website for IBS help.)
A simple book brimming with both scientific and practical information and tips! Written in his typical style, with simple exercises and follow up routine , it ensures that you take it seriously!
muy bueno. Algunos consejos los tome para mi vida diaria, aunque si tuviera que seguir todos los que da el libro, no tendria tiempo para nada.. hay que buscar el equilibrio.

Deepak Chopra is a physician who writes on a variety of health topics, sharing the wisdoms of his native country of India. In this case, he addresses IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) from an Ayurvedic perspective and presents you with a questionnaire to determine your metabolic body type (vata, pitta, and kapha doshas) and the food recommendations that go with each. He is a good author to recommend to patrons exploring Indian philosophies on health and wellness as he writes in a way that is simple ...more
I don't have digestive problems myself, but read this to see if I could learn anything useful for loved ones. It was quite good. I learned a lot about ayurvedic philosophy/science (I don't know if that's the right term, but that's what I remember) and there were surprisingly simple tips for improving one's health. It was not just all about changing your diet. I would definitely recommend this to anyone struggling with IBS or other digestive disorders.
My dad bought this book and it was read by all family members. I tought it was fantastic the little but helpful advices Deepak give us on this book, easy and effective, I also like the ayurveda diet thing and the type of bodies quiz. Easy to read, easy to apply to real life :) We loved this one.
Explains digestion from a holistic point of view, derived from Ayurveda. This book has good information that I was not familiar with. It has a questionaire section where you can determine your metabolic body type and then gives diet suggestions for how to bring your body into balance.
I liked this, but I read it before Chopra came out as complete mystical freak. It's hard to take him seriously now.

Nothing normal nutrisionist would not tell you, if not more, without fancy wording and complecations.
I am a fan of deepak chopra- another great book with advice on mind/ body and spirit.

I assiduously completed the book's weighty exercise, but it didn't work.
