The Wisdom of Ancient Health and Healing Systems

The Wisdom of Ancient Health and Healing Systems

Wisdom is the ability to gather, process, and interpret information so as to make wise choices in actions that will ultimately transform the body and the mind. Wisdom does not come from above; it has to be acquired. Therefore, empower yourself with the wisdom on natural self-healing.

The wisdom of some of the ancient health and healing systems manifests the importance of well-being and the power of natural healing:

1. Hippocrates (born around 450 B.C.) was the Father of Medicine. His Greek medical system was based on moderation for a balanced lifestyle in harmony with nature for natural healing. Hippocrates once said: "A wise man ought to realize that health is his most valuable possession, and learn how to treat his illnesses by his own judgment." So pay attention to what your body is telling you; your body symptoms often reflect internal disharmony, or indicate the imminence of disease. Nobody knows your own body's constitution better than yourself—not even your doctors or medical professionals.

2.  The Tibetan health system came under the influence of Buddha, and Tibetan monks practiced compassion and mindfulness, which comprise the essence of mental and emotional wellness requisite for natural self-healing. Remember, healing begins with the mind first, not the body; it is always mind over matter. Tibetan medicine also emphasizes virtuous conduct, a healthy diet, regular daily activity and seasonal routines to promote all-round health and natural healing. Furthermore, the Tibetan medical system heavily relies on herbal cures for natural healing.

3. The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) also embraces an extensive herbal medicine. More importantly, for thousands of years, Chinese doctors have believed that "qi" (internal life energy) flows throughout the body by way of channels or meridians. This internal life force is capable of continuous circulation provided there is balance between opposite forces of "yin" and "yang" which are energies of the universe, expressed in the Five Elements (the Earth, the Water, the Metal, the Fire, the Wood). Imbalance results in stagnation or blockage of "qi", which is the cause of disease.

4. The Ayurveda system in India is the "science of life" that has been practiced for thousands of years. This medical system advocates all inclusiveness for natural healing. Essentially, any doctrinal or ideological imperative must defer to the well-being of the patient. In other words, Ayurveda not only eliminates the process of disease but also restores the health of the patient to its original physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

The major difference between the wisdom of these long-standing health systems and that of modern Western medicine is that the former has a holistic approach to health, focusing on the prevention and the natural self-healing of disease, while the latter emphasizes the cure and the removal of disease symptoms. Today's medical doctors tend to specialize in exquisitely narrow fields of anatomic and physiologic expertise that they have little time to observe the general wellness of their patients. But the wisdom of healing is to make whole of your health and wellness.
