When wisdom meets technology
“Where Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Technology” was the tagline of the three-day International Conference on Integrative Medicine and Holistic Healing at the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), Mohali, from 20th to 22nd September, organised by the Quantum Clinic in association with the Holistic Healing Trust; Max Hospital, Mohali; and Xicome Mexico.
Renowned healers, experts, doctors, and scientists presented their views and research on diverse topics like pyramid meditation, hypnotherapy, astral surgery and healing, the role of breathing, energy healing and guides, sound healing, soulful pregnancy, acupuncture, research on cancer, and a lot more.
Dr Sachin Gupta, oncologist and holistic healing promoter, said, “Cancer, being one of the most deteriorating diseases in the world, can be effectively treated if the oncologists globally integrate modern medicine and science with holistic healing and spirituality.”
He also emphasised that one needs to dig deeper to discover the actual reason for the disease, which most of the time is emotional in nature. Adopting yoga, deep breathing, and pranayama can not only help in accelerating the treatment but will also immunise a person from relapses. He urged cancer hospitals to form a team of healers from various modalities and aid patients to get well in a holistic way.
Dr N K Sharma, a spiritual master and founder of the Reiki Healing Foundation, explains how we can safeguard ourselves from acute and chronic diseases by adopting naturopathy as a way of life. Blossom Furtado, director of the Hypnotherapy School of India, talked about how hypnotherapy can help people transform their thought process and reshape their lives. Ochune, energy healer and spiritual guide from the Quantum Clinic, motivated the delegates to think positive thoughts to attract health, abundance, love, and bliss.
The medium of sound helps you journey within yourself. Keeping this in mind, a sacred sound concert facilitated by Michelle D. Button, a sound healing specialist from Mexico, and Sanj Hall, a travelling yogi, was organised. The duo took the delegates into a deep trance through a musical experience of ancient traditions that reverberated the auditorium with healing vibrations.
As the conference coincided with the International Day of Peace, the speakers also promoted peace and love along with health and wellness.
“Without music, life would be a mistake,” said Friedrich Nietzsche, in his book Twilight of the Idols.
Music has the ability to make us vibrate on a higher level than we normally do. There is also a belief that music created with conscious intention to elevate others can impact listeners positively and deeply. Jeena Earthiva has been working on this, getting amazing results with children and adults equally, and even named her music ‘Conscious Music.’ She discovered this music when she lost her voice at the peak of her singing career and didn’t know what to do. In that depressed state, she found herself motivated to respond to her mentor’s (Dr Daisaku Ikeda) words, “To transform the life-state of humankind.” She started experimenting with electronic music production, and that’s how ‘Conscious Music’ was born. Jeena is a composer, music producer, singer, songwriter, performer, and now also a motivational speaker. She specialises in New Age Indian-Electronica Music.
Conscious Music could be music from any genre, including popular enjoyable
crowd-pulling music in which every element of the music (the lyrics, sounds, or beats) is created with a conscious intention to elevate people’s minds and remind them about the infinite dignity of life itself. The context or theme of the music could be anything—from romance and love to partying and fun. Jeena says, “Because music has the subtle yet strong power to programme the social and collective subconscious, shaping up people’s life-philosophies and principles, we urgently need to advocate the importance of conscious consumption and creation of music. Unconscious music, on the other hand, is music that is created without conscious awareness of its social impact and, thereby, can be and has been a great trigger for the decline of social well-being and the average mental health all across the world. There are enough data and statistics to prove this.”
Jeena believes that since India was the pioneer in the science of consciousness, it must definitely be the very first to start the global movement for conscious listening, to a point where all commercial music will end up being Conscious Music. As practical steps toward this goal, she has already launched some global projects on conscious music for mental health and social well-being.
These are currently aimed at corporates, educational institutes, government organisations, societies, and others. She is also deeply interested in taking her sessions to prison cells, refugee camps, and slums, with the support of other relevant groups or organisations.
Exploring the yellow medicine
Indian spices are well-known around the world because of the flavour and aroma they add to our dishes. Apart from that, their therapeutic value is widely noted. Turmeric, among other spices, is popular not only for its flavour and colour but also for its medicinal properties. It is used to treat ailments like skin conditions, digestive issues, as well as aches and pains. But it is curcumin, its main compound, that is responsible for its yellow colour. Possessing significant anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-mutagenic, anticoagulant, and anti-infective effects, curcumin has proven to be a revolutionary healing component. Multiple researches highlight curcumin’s natural ability to heal body wounds, given its ability to enhance granulation tissue formation, collagen deposition, tissue remodelling, and wound contraction. Not only this, studies have shown that it has cholesterol-lowering properties as well.
Curcumin caught the limelight for its miraculous healing properties, and thus, it has become a topic of research for its anticancer properties. As an alternate and complementary therapy, curcumin is being experimented with in the US during chemotherapy. “Curcumin is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent,” said Professor Manohar Garg, director of the nutraceuticals research programme at the University of Newcastle. Adding further, he said that it helps in managing numerous diseases as a range of chronic diseases is linked to inflammation, including tumour growth. This prevents the tumour from spreading and, in several ways, disrupts the formation of cancer cells in various stages.
Unsurprisingly, turmeric has been a part of ayurveda, emerging as an important medicinal component in around 500 BCE. Preferred for various inflammatory diseases such as asthma, rheumatism, sinusitis, allergies, and diabetes, turmeric treatments are well-documented in India. Studies have shown that India has a low incidence of colon cancer owing to the high antioxidant levels of curcumin-rich food in the country.
And, what’s more, it is widely regarded as a safe compound without any side effects apart from leaving one with an upset stomach when consumed in large quantities. So, the next time the yellow dish presents itself, remember it is doing more than just adding colour on your plate.
