Modern medical advancements provide the rationale for the integration of various traditional healing techniques like Yoga, Naturopathy, Ayurveda, Siddha and Music to promote healing, health, and longevity. The Govt of India is currently promoting indigenous systems of health in a strong manner through the Ministry of AYUSH. The limitations of modern medicine in managing stress induced psychosomatic, chronic illnesses is the strength of these traditional healing systems and hence a holistic integration of both systems enables best quality of patient care.
Benefits of Yoga
It is imperative that advances in medicine include the wholistic approach of Yoga to face the current challenges in health care. The antiquity of Yoga must be united with the innovations of modern medicine to improve quality of life throughout the world. No wonder that Dr. Dean Ornish, the eminent American doctor who has shown that Yogic lifestyle can reverse heart disease says, “Yoga is a system of perfect tools for achieving union as well as healing”.
