Diagnose, Treat, And Cure All Disease With Traditional Indian Holistic Therapies

Our body has been perfectly created to function optimally, providing we observe the laws of nature.


Published:

The human body is a latticework of energies vibrating at different frequencies, encompassing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.

Our body has been perfectly created to function optimally, providing we observe the laws of nature. When we divert from these laws through breathing polluted air, eating food far from its natural state, drinking chemical-laden water, ingesting toxic medication, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, using inorganic body and household products, being exposed to electromagnetic pollution, and even thinking negative thoughts, imbalances result within our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body, creating disease.

The symptoms of any disease are merely the body’s innate method of correcting the imbalances within, to allow us to return to our natural state of wholeness. When we attempt to treat our disease by the administration of medication, we are merely temporarily suppressing the symptoms. We are not addressing the root cause of our disease. The medication causes further imbalances, disrupting our body’s natural immune system, which is rarely given the opportunity to fulfill its role.

Over a period of time our initial disease reappears with more serious symptoms. Our body, once again, is attempting to correct the imbalances within, to regain equilibrium. Our new symptoms are diagnosed as a new disease, stronger medication is administered and the vicious cycle continues.

Traditional energy healers of India had a wealth of knowledge for diagnosing, treating and curing disease by natural methods. The purpose of applying traditional Indian holistic therapies is to empower the body’s innate ability to self-heal. Through the generations many of these holistic practices have been kept alive, a few of which are described here.

Acupressure is the holistic practice of diagnosing, treating and curing disease by applying intermittent pressure on specific areas of the hands and feet that correspond to specific organs, glands, tissues, and areas of the body. This regulates the vital energy of that body part, empowering it to function optimally. Traditional Indian medicine widely recognizes that the physical root cause of all disease lies within our endocrine and exocrine glands, and it is through the application of acupressure that our glands can be rebalanced and reactivated.

Mudras are hand gestures that balance the vital energy throughout the body by joining together different combinations of the fingers and thumbs. It is believed that the human structure is a miniature form of the universe composed of the five elements, each of which corresponds to a specific finger or thumb. Holding these precise combinations together for a short period of time allows the elements to regain equilibrium, creating a positive environment to encourage the body’s natural healing response. Traditionally mudras were practiced in conjunction with pranayama.

Pranayama is the holistic practice of controlling the breath to increase the vital energy within the body. Our breath is the life force that flows through each and every cell in our body. By expanding our life force we can harmonize with the life force of the universe. The regular practice of breath exercises alters our physical, mental and emotional states to initiate the body’s natural capacity to self heal. Traditionally, pranayama was practiced to release negative energy, calm the body, and prepare the mind for meditation.

Chanting is the holistic practice of repeating a mantra for a short period of time to return to the present moment and detach from stress, anxiety and fear. A mantra is the rhythmic speaking or singing of a word or sound. It is believed to calm our restless mind and rid it of negative thought processes to create tranquillity and mental purity. Chanting starts loudly, gradually becoming quieter, and ends almost silently. This resonates with the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of our body to instill inner peace. Traditionally, chanting was practiced to awaken the divine light and love within us to experience the unity of life.

Chromotherapy is the holistic practice of applying specific colors to parts of the body to heal imbalances. The sun is comprised of seven colors, each of which has its own vibration and carries its own healing property. Each of the seven colors is associated with the seven energy centers known as the chakras. Color can be absorbed by our body through sunlight, artificial light, water or visualization to correct imbalances and empower our body’s natural ability to cure disease. Traditionally, the sun was highly praised for its healing capacity as an unlimited source of light energy.

Crystals are well known for their capacity to heal and treat the systems of the body, mind, and spirit by placing them within the body’s magnetic field to restore the flow of healthy positive energy and remove toxic negative energy. Each crystal possesses a unique chemical make-up which determines its healing property and appearance. Placing a crystal on an area of our body that requires healing or on the chakra that governs the area allows our body to raise its vibration to that of the crystal.

Barefoot Walking is the holistic practice of walking on earth barefoot to draw upon this powerful and unique energy source. Earth is composed of minerals identical to the mineral essence of the human body; therefore our bodies resonate perfectly with Earth’s energy. Sleeping outdoors during the summer on a natural fiber placed directly on bare earth has been described as charging the entire being with the vital healing force of the universe. Traditionally, humans walked barefoot or with footwear made of natural animal skins.

A Raw Food Diet is the holistic practice of eating food in its whole, unrefined and uncooked form, which is positively and negatively balanced due to its plentiful supply of solar energy and active enzymes. Food eaten in its natural state has a detoxifying, calming and balancing effect on our body, mind and emotions. All of the nutrients required by the body are available in plant-based food in a form that is easily digested. Traditionally, fasting was recommended during illness to allow the body’s energy reserves to be directed towards self-healing, however adopting a raw food diet for a short period of time can have similar health benefits.

In today’s fast-paced world as we strive to create balance in our bodies, in our minds and in our lives, we can benefit enormously from the ancient Indian wisdom of self-healing practices to cleanse, calm and empower our energies. By ensuring they flow smoothly and harmoniously, we can instill physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Vera Kaur is an author of Sikh Indian origin, who grew up using traditional Indian therapies. In her twenties she lived in ashrams in India where she observed the positive results of the self-healing practices used by traditional energy healers. Her book, Diagnose, Treat and Cure All Dis-ease with Traditional Indian Holistic Therapies, is available at www.verakaur.com.
