In Acute Disease situations or injury situations, pain indicates life’s activity towards healing.

For short term comfort, we can clean the area thoroughly and apply earth pack or vegetable pack or hydro therapy and sun therapy based on the situation along with other subtle foods.

For the long term, we correct the lifestyle as per guidelines for good health.

We believe in Unity theory and the theory of taking a total approach. We even say that our physical, mental and spiritual health is one and indivisible.  We believe in giving attention to remove tension by first doing a Pranayama followed by Dhyana over our normal breathing.

We also encourage each individual to engage his /her passion and skill in a restful manner as much as one can. There are many activities like yoga asanas, which give a good number of opportunities to relax the mind.

We can take those suggestions and apply the principles to design activities to bring out their mental and emotional problems into a creative activity while we wait for healing to complete.
