Dr. Vasant Lad is an Ayurvedic doctor and educator who founded the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. He brought Ayurveda to the west. His introductory book I mention on the Books tab above was my introduction to Ayurveda. I still use it periodically for reference and remedies decades later.
A documentary film is now being made about the life of this remarkable pioneer.
They’re currently fund-raising to complete the film, if you’d be interested in supporting it.
