JMSC alumna Reenita Malhotra Hora will be hosting a book launch and signing of her new book, Forever Young: Unleashing the Magic of Ayurveda, at Dymocks bookstore in the International Finance Centre from 6:30pm to 8:00pm on Thursday, April 25.
The book is Hora’s third on Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old Indian natural medicine system.
It is published by the Indian branch of Pan Macmillan, and provides guidelines, fitness routines and nutrition advice for improving health and well-being.
“In a nutshell, Ayurveda is to India what Chinese medicine is to China”, said Hora (MJ, 2012), a Hong Kong-based Ayurvedic clinician.
“Both are very holistic and based on harmonizing the mind and body with the environment, and involve lifestyle choices, diets, herbs, and stretches and exercises for healthier living”.
Hora, who also works at RTHK Radio 3 as a presenter for the Asian Threads radio show, and as a presenter and producer for the show Money for Nothing, explained that Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning “science of life”.
“Ayurveda doesn’t just treat symptoms after you’ve gotten sick, it focuses on the way you live every day”, Hora said. “The premise is: if you live right, and live your life in harmony with the natural life of the universe, then you will always maintain your peak health”.
