Day Forty-Three: Soul Medicine-The Ancient Art of Ayurvedic Healing

Luckily our modern society is moving towards healing the mind, body and

spirit (soul). Doctors who, in the past, were married to their narrow scientific

views of how to treat the physical body, are even beginning to realize that their

patients have reached a higher awareness of the importance of treating the

‘whole’ person. The ultimate healing integrates all forms of therapies whether

they are scientifically traditional “Western” or more natural/holistic “Eastern”.

Ayurvedic Medicine is one of the most ancient forms of healing and is now

gaining worldwide acknowledgement. Formerly it was thought of as “New

Agey” or “Puff Science” but it is now revered and supported by some of the

most traditional Doctors. Though this is true I still find myself hesitating when

I go to share the incredible results of some of the Ayurveda tools I use-I

usually scope out the person for awhile before I open the door to those

conversations. When that door opens though my passion explodes on

the topic.

Ayurvedic healing can assist in complimenting any healing regiment

but there are some places-like mental health-where it has allowed for

a change in perceptions on certain illnesses that were treated as

animalistic in the past. When Western medicine prevails in treating

mental illness the patient sees a Psychiatrist and is given pills to

balance the chemicals in the brain. This is an important step but

imagine how much more rapid the healing could be if holistic/Ayurvedic

medicine could introduce practices that “identify a person’s ideal state of

balance, determine where they are out of balance, and offer interventions

using diet, herbs, aromatherapy, massage treatments, music, and

meditation to reestablish balance.”

“According to Ayurveda, each of us inherits a unique mix of three mind/body

principles which creates our specific mental and physical characteristics.

These three principles are called doshas.”
