Medications and invasive therapies for diseases often target just one problem, even though many conditions – such as those affecting the gastrointestinal tract, heart and brain – are interconnected, meaning that they're influenced by events happening in the mind and body.
But holistic healing methods, like yoga, meditation and acupuncture, are thought to address a person's whole being: their body, mind and spirit.
For example, people with mild depression may find that they also experience digestive problems or even heart arrhythmia because their mental state causes disruption in other bodily systems. As such, many individuals have found relief in practicing exercises – like yoga – that are mostly physical in nature, yet have a calming effect for the mind as well. In turn, the self-healing method may alleviate conditions affecting more than one part of a person's being.
Individuals seeking mind-body-spirit alignment may consider looking into the many guides authored by philosopher and trailblazer Ilchi Lee, who founded Dahn Yoga. Lee spreads his teachings in majestic Sedona, Arizona, where he is among a number of healers and intuitives.
