Hello and welcome to our website. We are super excited to start bringing you info on various healing arts from around the world!
Healing of different kinds has been around since the dawn of civilisation. When someone is sick, they inevitably want to get better as soon as possible. Understandably, some of the earlier forms of healing have been more esoteric in nature. Interestingly enough, though, several very old practices are still in use and prove to be effective even today. Systems such as acupuncture, herbalism and healing touch go back many hundreds, if not thousands of years.
The early and mid parts of the 20th century say an increase in popularity of Western medicine with its huge advances in healthcare and creations of amazing drugs such as antibiotics. However, it seems that in more recent years alternative healing arts are also becoming popular among the general public.
Some traditional healing methods do carry more merit than others and have the backing of various scientific studies to prove their effectiveness. However, there are also some that lack the evidence of their effectiveness, so it is important to look a little deeper into any practice or method of healing to get an idea of its validity.
Here is a fascinating documentary called Sacred Science. In this documentary, a film crew follow a group of people with various health conditions and document their travel to Peru to seek out Shamanistic healing for their ailments. The methods used by the Shamans are predominantly based on the use of herbal medicine from their traditions. The results after 30 days are quite impressive and very eye-opening. We hope you enjoy the video!
