Western Medicine dismisses traditional systems of healing as being unscientific and not open to general scrutiny:traditonal systems view allopathy as being too reductionist and more interested in the parts rather than in the individual as a whole.The lingering reality,however,is that no single system of healthcare-traditional or modern,is able to provide comprehensive answers to sickness and disease that have plagued mankind over the ages. The Yoga of Healing,an anthology of Articles published in The Hindu examines eight systems of healing -Allopathy,Ayurveda,Homeopathy,Acupuncture,Pranic Healing,Reiki,Yoga and Pyschoanalysis-their approach to sickness,their intrinsic healing power and their limitations.Yoga expert T.K.V.Desikachar and allopathic surgeon Dr.Arjun Rajgopalan anchor a series of dialogues with specialists in the various fields.What emerges is the need for a synthesis-a mixing and merging of the positive aspects of all the systems:a need to discover as cohesive path towards holistic healing.
