Today’s lifestyle has created an exceedingly unhealthy environment for people. While conventional medicine in the form of pharmaceutical drugs and surgery do help, they are quite isolated in their approach to healing. But the fact is, our health is the result of numerous factors. Your heart may be weak, not just because of clogged arteries, but also because of a poorly-functioning digestive system. Knowledge of the organ systems’ interconnectedness can help practitioners provide more effective treatment. Holistic healing practices like herbalism, Reiki, and Kundalini Yoga, Sound Healing consider the body, mind, and spirit as a single entity and focus on healing them together. They do this without subjecting the body to stressful surgeries or harmful chemicals. This helps you stay healthier for longer without relapsing.
Meditation Can Help You Heal Yourself: Here’s How
Meditation is one of the most-prescribed holistic healing practices for centuries. Combined with pranayama (breathing exercises) and yoga, it offers an exceptional healing experience.
Here are three ways in which meditation does this:
It helps your muscles relax
Meditation helps your mind consciously relax the tightness in your muscles, thereby allowing them to heal.
It makes you better at managing pain
The practice of meditation is about self-mastery. When you consciously focus on your breaths and not the pain, you develop the mental strength to manage pain better.
It helps you visualize healing
Positive visualization is an effective healing process. When you meditate, your mind becomes free of your day-to-day worries, allowing you to obtain clarity about what you really want – a healthy body and healthy mind – and the steps to achieve it.
