Ayurveda & Allopathic
The Four Vedas are a culmination of the wisdom of the ancient rishis, saints, sages and seers of India. Ayurveda is a part of the Artava Veda.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an out-pouring of the ancient Taoist saints, sages and mystics who observed Nature so deeply that they were able to codify her secrets into texts that we can still use today! (i.e., The Nei Ching Su Wen)
Traditional Tibetan Medicine, likewise, is the time-honored Trans-Himalayan Shamanic practice handed down in the oral tradition, combined with Buddhist, Chinese Medical, and Ayurvedic influences and then written down by the Bon-po and Buddhist lamas and gurus.
Today, we inhabitants of the modern world are the fortunate recipients of this great wisdom energy!
For any healing tradition to ignore the power inherent in the silent stillness is to severely limit the scope of its ability to heal. We see this demonstrated every day in the indiscriminate use of drugs and surgeries performed due to diagnostics that fail to dig deeply enough into the root causative factors of the disease process.
Ayurveda, TCM and Tibetan Medicine are medical traditions born out of a deep practice of meditation – thereby acknowledging the power of stillness and silence as tools for evaluation and treatment.
