Astrology, Prakriti Therapy ( Naturopathy ) & Holistic Medicine

In the Holistic Model, the cause of any disease is understood in terms of
the whole person and not in terms of a particular organ or tissue. As Sir
William Osler put it, it is more import to know the patient who has the
disease than the disease of the patient. The one person who knows about the
patient more than anybody else is the patient himself. Peter and Elizabeth
Allbright in Body Mind & Spirit state that \ ” responsibility for healthcare
rests in the patient’#8217;s hands because that is where the knowledge & control
of the variables lie ( diet,stress,exercise,genetics,emotion,medication) \ “.
\ ” Food is medicine; Medicine is food \ ” said Hippocrates and Upanishads
declare that \ ” Food is Brahman. Food was verily born before all creatures:
therefore it is called the medicine for all\ “. By stating that food is the
panacea for all ills and illnesses the Upanishads have formulated one
of the foundational principles of holistic health. At least half the
diseases & ailments of man can be traced directly or indirectly to the
problems of food. Diet control is the basic principle of Naturopathy. Nature
is the Doctor and natural foods can cure ailments. Nature & Naturopathy
are ruled by Jupiter, the planet of Wisdom. In India Jyotish, Ayurveda,
Prakriti Therapy are all interrelated disciplines and part of esoterica.
Astrology can bring tranquillity to the patient by showing him how the
cohesive forces of Destiny operate. The patient can achieve what
Keats called the Negative Capability – a stoic indifference to pleasure
and pain.

To bear all naked truths,
That envisage Circumstance, all calm
That is the top of sovereignty.

By accepting the divine decrees of Fate the patient can feel the inner
calmness and achieve an altered state ( EEG brain waves at 8.5 cycles
per second – alpha state ). In this altered state natural healing chemicals
called endorphins are secreted into the blood system and healing takes
place naturally.

Yoga was defined by Aurobindo as a methodic process towards
self-perfection through a development of the latent potential at the
five levels of Being – physical, vital, mental, intellectual & spiritual.

latent potential of the human being can be unfolded. Jupiter &
Mercury rules over intellectual development, Moon mental,
Mars physical, Venus vital & Saturn spiritual.

Universal Life-Force Energy known as the Cosmic Prana.
