Good as a starter kit

"There are two parts to the product: one booklet that provides a very general outline of ayurveda and provides a simple grid of determining your body type: spring, summer or winter. Depending on your body type, the booklet identifieds the symptoms that you may experience and a general cure. The DVD is split into the following parts: explanation of ayurveda, the foods that are associated with your body time and they use a patient-doctor to explain the process; the final part is related to to tools to use and is further broken down to 12 minutues meditation, 15 minutes of yoga, massage => great if you can dedicate a good hour before you go to work. in my real life, I can only use bits of it during the work week.
I like the message that avurveda is to prevent stress rather than a lot of products out there that try to cure the symptoms. Good enough for me to be encouraged to look into more of avurveda"

"Dr John Douillard did a great job explaining stress management methods for the body. The visual tools used in the DVD helped to illustrate some of his points. He provides a quick overview of the doshas pitta, kapha, and vita. He adds additional info on how stress impacts the body by dosha. I also like how he mentions the connection of food cravings and the energy levels in the body. Dr. Douillard discusses an eating style that I thought was interesting which is based on the 3 seasons.
The Alternative Nostril Breathing technique is demonstrated which he mentions brings oxygen to both hemisphere of the brain.
Additionally, Dr John Douillard performs a sequence of yoga poses for stress that last approx 20 minutes. I thought it was bonus that he explains why each pose is used in the sequence. For example, the eye of the needle reduce muscle tense from stress."
