Tremendous strides have been made in Genetics recently. There has been an explosion of information regarding the D.N.A. & R.N.A. (DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACID AND RIBONUCLEIC ACID). Cloning experiments have conclusively proved that all the necessary information required for the creation of the human body is stored in the Genes. Now experiments are being done to complete the Genome mapping of the human body and a day is not far away when gene therapy will cure cancers, diabetes, collagen disorders and will identify whether an unborn fetus is likely to be a genius or an idiot and what disease it is likely to suffer from in the future. It will also be possible for creating a human race with perfect bodies. Genetics has recognized that it is a faulty gene that causes cancers and several incurable crippling diseases and fatal diseases.
There have also been tremendous strides in HOLISITIC MEDICINE. More and more people are taking recourse to Alternative Medicine; like Yoga, Meditation, Relaxation techniques, making diet and life style changes and there is conclusive evidence that these therapies work and scores of patients have had miraculous remissions from cancers and other serious diseases. Of course, this makes Allopaths very uneasy, and the term spontaneous remission is commonly used to explain these so called ‘miraculous cures’.
Disease according to Holistic Medicine is an unnatural condition of the body, because Holism believes that the body was created by nature to experience bliss and not pain or suffering. Holistic experts believe that negative emotions and living a life not in tune with nature is the main cause of disease.
The purpose of this human life is to attain liberation and bliss. To that end both Genetics and Holistic Medicine pursue the same goal. Although, there are no clear cut answers yet, it is clear that Holistic Medicine somehow corrects the faulty genes and compels the DNA-RNA to make the necessary changes to affect a cure. Time has come for Holistic Medicine to be taken more seriously and be integrated with Orthodox medicine so that it can be researched and practiced objectively.
