The Other Side of Western Medicine

The science of healing has gone a long way and with the advance of modern science and industrialization, we can say that we have made astounding breakthroughs in the field of medicine. We have made amazing discoveries about microscopic organisms and viruses.

When in the past, humanity has been plagued by virus and bacteria such as the Black Death, the yellow fever, and other epidemics that killed thousands, now we can say that we are in full control of even the smallest strain of virus and bacteria. Lifespan has significantly increased and health care has really improved so that we have actually been dependent on the solutions that modern medicine provides. In fact, western medicine has been so proud even to the point of ridiculing various types of alternative medicine such as massage, meditation, energy healing and many others.

The truth of the matter is that modern medicine is highly one sided on the physical aspect alone. Yes we have discovered cures to bacteria, but an evil society that knows the ins and outs of viruses can use this as a form of biological warfare. This is a social aspect of disease which modern medicine has no cure. Yes we have so many antibiotics, but it also created a lot of strains resistant to antibiotics that the world has ended up having more types of diseases than before. How about stress? This topic is written all over literature but modern medicine only has cures for the symptoms of stress and not the stress itself. The fact is, modern medicine has gone a long way but left the most important passengers in the rain-spirituality, psychological wellbeing, emotional health, mental peace. These important passengers eventually take their effects on the body and result in disease. This is where alternative medicine comes in.

Now modern life has become so stressful. We move and act like robots and really work hard for the money. Soon stress will take its toll on our health, on our emotional wellbeing, on our emotional state. Yet modern medicine only has cures for the manifestations and symptoms of the disease but not the root cause---our lifestyle and the current societal structures that compel us to work like machines. Does modern medicine have a name for that? In fact, modern medicine doesn't have a name for energy healing. Energy which central to everything we do is actually a basic premise of Eastern medicine but has no name in Western Medicine. Hindu, Chinese, and Japanese healing arts have a name for different types of energy such as chi, ki, shen, jing, and utilize this knowledge for healing. And although what we call alternative healing is not savvy about cells and organs and genes and microscopic elements, alternative healing has a more comprehensive and encompassing framework that considers the emotional, mental, psycological, social, and spiritual aspects of the disease. All these have their impact on the body's energy centers called chakras. Meditation can actually work wonders on health and wellbeing.

Emotion which is a given fact of life has not been factored in as a major cause of disease. In fact when you have negative emotions, your immune systems collapse. You body becomes susceptible to various types of infections. On the other hand when you are in love, you immune system becomes stronger.

In Japan, a Reiki master can literally direct the flow of healing energy through the chakras and effect a healing that can be statistically proven. Yet many doctors trained in the western tradition scoff at the idea. However when time comes when all else in western medicine have already failed, whom do they call? The practitioners in what they call "alternative medicine". Much to their surprise, some patients do really get healed!
