The primary objective of Ayurveda, one of the sciences of Vedic wisdom, was not to cure people but to ensure that people never fall sick at all and stay healthy, happy and in a state of ultimate bliss. This book will explain you the science behind basic principles of Ayurveda in the contemporary language like; The three fundamental forces on which human mind and body work; How different foods affect these three forces inside us in different parts of the body thereby manifesting in different behaviors as well as diseases proving the point that WE ARE WHAT WE EAT; How different combinations of these forces, makes each of us different and that’s why ONE’S NECTAR COULD BE ANOTHER’S POISON; How absence of disease does not necessarily mean good health; How indiscreet dependence on modern medicine and consumption of so called superfoods is the cause of all the chaos and misery in today’s world; How science and spirituality are closely connected and how eating and offering the right food is the foremost Karma; How every choice that we make has a consequence of either invoking  the GOD or DEVIL inside us. The book will gradually move from Ayurveda to higher knowledge of occult sciences and explain that how Astrology (another discipline of Vedic Sciences) is an outcome of Ayurveda; How Astrology can explain that we are living in a simulated world which Vedas referred to as Maya- the illusion; and How can the principles of these Vedic sciences be gainfully utilized to transform this world from a state of chaos to a state of Ultimate bliss.
“The Root Cause is not just a book but a guide towards complete holistic wellbeing in a very short format for everyone to gain knowledge and modulate oneself to be a better being in the scheme of this universe.”
– Dr. Madhuri Patil
B.A.M.S. (Ayurvedacharya), MD (Ayurveda Samhita & Siddhant)

About the author

After completing his graduation in Botany, Capt. Alok Jain, the author of the book, served the Indian Army as a Short Service Commissioned Officer in the Corps of Air Defense. During his civil stint, he has worked in various organizations managing the Infrastructure, Facilities, Procurement, Health and Safety. It was those soul-stirring experiences, which he has captured in the beginning of the book that pushed him to go beyond the mundane and understand the connection between contemporary science and the various fields of Vedic sciences like Ayurveda, Ashtang Yoga including the occult like Astrology. The author realized that Vedic Sciences were nothing but the User Manual gifted by the higher world in order to get the optimum output from our mind and body for becoming truly spiritual and healthy. His advice to all especially the younger generation being the flag bearer of human race is that Vedic Sciences must be understood and implemented in true letter and spirit in case we wish to transform this world from a state of chaos to a state of bliss. And for that, they must shun wrong foods that negatively affect our mind and slowly push us deeper and deeper into the whirlpool of chaos.

Explains how to use your Taoist astrology birth chart as a personal nutritional guide for health, longevity, and organ energy balance

• Explores how to help balance your birth chi through your eating habits as well as explaining how foods address your five-element energetic profile

• Provides detailed food lists based on ancient Taoist wisdom that reveal their effect on the Yin, Yang, and five-element energies

• Shows how your five-element energies outline your life and influence success in relationships and at work

We are each born with a unique combination of heavenly and earthly energies defined by the five elements and dictated by the universe at the moment you take your first breath. This “birth chi” can be calculated using the year, month, day, and time of your birth, and it reveals your personal profile of health and emotional strengths and weaknesses as well as the energy cycles you will encounter throughout your life.

In this Inner Alchemy astrology nutrition guide, Master Mantak Chia and Christine Harkness-Giles explore how to strengthen your birth chi through your eating habits, revealing which foods will address imbalances in your five-element organ energy profile. The authors explain which organs are connected with each element--fire, earth, metal, water, and wood--and provide detailed food lists based on ancient Taoist wisdom that reveal the energetic temperature, flavor, and organ related to many common foods and superfoods. They emphasize the importance of local, seasonal, and fresh foods and of yin-yang balance for health. The authors illustrate the five elements’ characteristics through sample profiles for celebrities such as Paul McCartney and Meryl Streep, along with Taoist nutritional recommendations based on their charts. The authors also explore how your Inner Alchemy astrology profile determines your life and relationships and explain how Inner Alchemy practices and five-element nutrition can improve all aspects of your life.

By eating in line with your personal five-element energetic profile, as part of ancient Inner Alchemy techniques, you can improve health and longevity and strengthen connections with your loved ones and the energies of the cosmos.
From the physician behind the wildly popular NutritionFacts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.

The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer.

History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks.

In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day.Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.
