This is my first time reading a Deepak Chopra book and I highly recommend it! Here is an opportunity to learn the basics of Ayurvedic thinking including the doshas, sub-doshas, and chalkras as they relate to five elements. I have always been a believer in 5elements but never quite understood indian quantum healing and what the take-aways are for modern living. I struggle with Vata imbalance and thrive on workaholism, granola bars, caffeine, and adrenaline. Adding sesame seeds to your salad, eating sprouts, massaging your skin, giving yourself hugs, and going multiple days in a row without coffee to break the addiction cycle when you are already following a strict 'diet' (atkins, keto, weight watchers) and being told to meditate and go on walks is going to sound super low key but all healthy choices are cumulative and it's not to late to cultivate that lifestyle for yourself. The solutions feel low key and you are not told exactly what to eat. If you are oppositional to raw foods, veganism, and kombucca I would say stick it out. No Karma Police officer is going to knock on your door when you cave and eat fried chicken, but it might help you squeeze more raw foods into your diet to give it a try while you read this book. Try it and see if you feel any difference. Namaste.
