This work examines eight systems of healing - Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Pranic healing, Reiki, Yoga and Psychoanalysis - their approach to sickness, their intrinsic healing power and their limitations.
Western medicine dismisses traditional systems of healing as being unscientific and not open to general scrutiny; traditional 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.
Yoga expert T K V Desikachar and allopathic surgeon Dr Arjun Rajagopalan 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 a cohesive path towards holistic healing.
