Books on Alternative Medicine

The large-scale use of drugs is today being questioned by practitioners of alternative systems, who maintain that the age-old concept of holistic health is the key to living a long and healthy life. This resurgence of holistic healing has brought to the fore a number of alternate health care systems.

Prevention is better than cure. If you are healthy at the moment and intend to promote health and prevent disease, you have a choice between Nature Cure (Naturopathy) and Yoga. Nature Cure lays stress on living according to the laws of nature – what to eat, how to eat, how much to eat, and getting the help of air, water, and sunshine.

Yoga’s yama and niyama – the dos and don’ts – provide you with mental and moral uprightness. Asanas and pranayama make your body supple and alert. Dharana and dhyana provide mental peace.

For aches and pains in the body and joints, and for a general run-down condition of the body – Osteopathy, Acupuncture, Acupressure, Massage, and Homoeopathy are beneficial.

For chronic abdominal complaints like dyspepsia, gas in the abdomen, frequent loose motions, diminished energy – herbal treatment through Ayurveda and Unani medicine can be tried.

Aromatherapy, besides possessing other good points, is a mood elevator with the fragrant essences it uses. The proper choice of colour in our attire and surroundings is an important means of inducing relaxation or stimulating excitement. This is a part of Colour Therapy.

The Tibetan System of Medicine is known as Emchi and is based on Ayurvedic Principles. It is inseparable from Buddhism and is an amalgamation of art, science and spirituality.

Reflexology works on the principle that the entire body is mapped into the feet. Reflexology helps to relax muscles and sti,ulate the body's own natural ability to heal itself.

In Magneto Therapy diseases are treated through the application of magnets to the human body. No drugs are adminitered in this therapy.

Reiki is an energy-healing system that is useful for mental, emotional, physical and emotional balancing. Reiki practitioners, trained by Reiki Masters, channel universal life energy to other people by a light touch or by placing their hands gently on specific positions of the body.
