Homeopathy, Ayurvedic Medicine & Chinese Traditional Medicine: points in common

Studying Holistic Medicine allowed me to understand there are different languages, tools and point of views to read into the same issue. This is what I love most when I approach the ancient medicine system and the modern western natural medicine.

I’m writing this article to summarize the common points between Homeopathy, Ayurvedic Medicine & Chinese Traditional Medicine, focusing on the beauty of the concepts I had the opportunity to study, especially during a course with a homeopathic doctor, who had been able to blend all these different medicines in the great big picture of Holistic Medicine. I also deepened the study of the Chakras on a very practical level with Belinda Davidson in her School of the Modern Mystic

I’ve chosen to use Chakras as a road map: they have been identified not only in the Ayurvedic Medicine but in many others traditions too.

The word “Chakra” comes from the Sanskrit and means “circle” or “wheel”, indicating the continuous flow of life energy circularly (in medicine, it’s the continuous enzyme and metabolic replacement). There are 7 main Chakras in the body and life energy flows in each of them, regulating both emotions and organs of our body, that is part of a bigger energy field. When we think of a Chakra, it’s useful to expand our vision to the concept of energy (or “vital principle” in Homeopathy, or “life energy” in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine) trying not to apply a clear distinction between mental, emotional and spiritual aspects. Chakras are deeply connected to our Nervous System and Endocrine System too.

When a Chakra is unbalanced, the imbalance happens on two different levels: the first one is related to  the dysfunction of the enzyme-metabolic system and also to organs’ damage of the wobbly part; the second one is related to the emotional and psychological field because of the energetic blockage which induces chaos in body, mind and emotions. 

It’s possible to heal using Chinese Traditional Medicine, Homeopathy, Nutrition, Flower Essence Theraphy,  Chakra cleanse meditation, exercising and so much more, because each solution directly or indirectly affects one or more Chakras.

In my work I’ve realized that is much more effective for a client working on a Chakra with consciously actions, rather than focusing “only” on the symptom and supporting it through nutrition or natural remedies. This happens because a client often takes remedies in a passive way without really taking part in the healing process, that must be active.

It's Veronica here, I'm an Italian Nutritionist, Life and Health Coach. Endlessly curious, after my graduation at Uni, I've traveled in Italy far and wide (with a two-months trip in Australia) to follow refresher courses, but only recently I started my blog, because I do believe that sharing my knowledge and my opinion is a form of healing. If you like what I write (mostly in Italian at the moment) and you think it's useful, you can help me to share it (and I thank you for that!). You can join my English newsletter, my Facebook page and Instagram (where I use to write in Eng and in Ita) to know more about my daily life plus tips and tricks!
