E-Book – Dispensing With Tradition (Anne McIntyre & Michelle Boudin)

Dispensing with Tradition; A Practitioner’s Guide to using Indian and Western Herbs the Ayurvedic Way, is a unique herbal reference guide, blending Western Herbal and Ayurvedic traditions in a modern way for practitioners and students.

In short monographs it classifies over 240 herbs, enabling an understanding of Western herbs from an Ayurvedic perspective as well as Ayurvedic herbs from a Western perspective. In this way it provides a guide to dispensing from both traditions while dispensing with formal tradition, in that it is enabling practitioners to use herbs outside of their normal repertoire.

According to Ayurvedic philosophy all matter is derived from pure consciousness.  The amazing natural world gives us herbs, incredible healing plants, which are manifestations of the conscious intelligence of the universe.  Prana is the life force, the dynamic manifestation of consciousness and each herb has its own subtle intelligence or unique wisdom and pranic energy or attributes which give it ‘energetic’ effects as well as pharmacological constituents, and its potential ability to heal.  Herbs from all over the globe can impart their wisdom or intelligence to us and help balance pranic disturbances that create imbalances and health problems in mind and body, and reconnect or align us with consciousness, and this is the ultimate aim of Ayurveda.  They are an extraordinary gift.  Whether we are trained in the Western or Eastern tradition we can benefit from the healing ability of the herbs around us and use them to care for ourselves and others.

The purpose of this book is to enable an understanding of the Ayurvedic classification and use of herbs for practitioners employing herbs within the framework of an Ayurvedic approach to treatment.  It presumes a prior knowledge of Ayurveda and its terms although there are glossaries at the back.  It consists mainly of a Materia Medica divided loosely in Western and Ayurvedic herbs and indexes of actions and therapeutic uses.

Each herb has its own unique blend of many different attributes.  It has myriad chemical constituents and physiological actions; it has its qualities and properties, being for example hot/cold, dry/moist, heavy/light, and with time and experience it is possible to become acquainted with each individual herb almost like a different personality.  Taking all this into consideration we can consider a herb as a whole and not assess its healing potential based solely on its ‘active’ constituents or even their quality or qualities (guna).  Each short monograph classifies the herbs according to basic traditional Ayurvedic specifications (including their tastes, post digestive effect, energy, guna, which doshasdhatus and srotas they mainly affect) and according to the Western medical model, their latin name, botanical family, pharmacological constituents, actions and indications.

E-book – Ayurvedic Perspective on Skin Problems

A clear, concise and beautifully illustrated introduction to the principles of Ayurveda and how these principles can lead us to an understanding of skin problems.

In more than 100 pages, Anne gives detailed advice about the treatment of a range of common skin problems from an Ayurvedic perspective using diet and both Western and Ayurvedic herbs, plus providing descriptions of many of the most beneficial herbs.

E-book – Herbs to Calm the Mind and Support the Practice of Meditation

“One who sees equally the entire universe in his own self and his own self in the entire universe is in possession of true knowledge.” Charaka Samhita 5.6

Herbs have traditionally been used to calm the mind and ease tension, stress and anxiety. In this beautifully illustrated e-book of more than 100 pages, Anne discusses the role of meditation and some of the recent scientific research on the changes to brain chemistry that meditation brings about. She also describes a more profound and subtle use of herbs and their ability to support meditation practice, to increase focus and awareness and enhance our spiritual life.

Why Meditate?
The practice of meditation can help to balance the mind and emotions by providing a means to go within and quieten the endless chatter in the mind. Meditation takes us on a journey of awareness towards the inner self and provides space and time for quiet reflection and silence, away from the hustle and bustle of life.
