Ayurveda—The Original and Ultimate Mind-Body Medicine
Your physiology has an inherent self-repair mechanism. There exists an internal healing intelligence that guides the healing of wounds. This intelligence senses the pain brought on by a cut on your finger and immediately mobilizes a series of reactions to stop the bleeding, form a scab, and induce the regeneration of skin. Elegantly and effortlessly, this process has a 100 percent rate of success, assuming it is not interrupted. It must be successful, for your life depends on it.
What if there existed a way to unleash your innate healing intelligence to cure depression?
Ayurveda provides an instruction manual for unleashing the self-repair mechanisms that are inherent in our physiology. Ayurveda is considered by many to be the original holistic science of health, and it is the ultimate system of mind-body medicine. The solutions for depression offered in Healing Depression the Mind-Body Way are based on this ancient science of life. Following the Ayurvedic path will help you no matter where you are on the continuum of mental and physical health – whether trying to get from under the grip of the blues or simply trying to depression-proof your life.
How’s the mind-body approach to healing depression different?
Ayurveda can help us to do this because it looks at the human being from a deeper reality than Western medicine does. Ayurveda moves beyond studying the systems of the body to studying the underlying energetic patterns, the vibratory essence of the human being. Its concepts readily correspond to modern theories of quantum mechanics, which are increasingly deciphering the energetic nature of the human body, mind, and spirit.
