One of the main understandings of ancient healing systems such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurveda, Native American practices is that all life form is created out of energy. Different philosophies have different names for this energy or life force: in Ayurveda it is called Prana, in Chinese Chi, in Hebrew Ruach and in Greek Pneuma.
This life force is contained within everything and everyone and more importantly, this energy it is always moving, flowing. That is the inherent nature of life itself. Whenever this energy gets concentrated or stuck, imbalance and disharmony occur until this stagnation is released. Like water from a river that collects on land and begins to stagnate, our body and mind can become toxic and dysfunctional if we fall out of rhythm with this natural flow of life energy. In women this energy flows primarily through these main aspects of their feminine
Each of these, if blocked or stagnant either physically or psychologically can create a wide variety of health and wellness problems. This is why western medicine has failed so miserably at healing women’s health issues. It’s inability to look at the whole has limited real solutions for women’s imbalances. We ARE whole.
We can’t be dissected into pieces and have our hearts and thumbnails treated by different specialists. This is why the same acupuncture point helps with detoxifying the liver and anger management and the same ayurvedic herbs cure hormone disruptions as well as depression.
Body and Mind are not two things; you are not divided in two, body and mind. Body and mind are one thing. You are psychosomatic, you are bodymind. The body is just the beginning of your mind and the mind is nothing but the end of the body. Both are aspects of one phenomenon. So whatever happens in the body effects the mind and whatsoever happens in the mind effects the body. They run parallel.
Have you tried alternative healing techniques and if yes, what’s your experience?
