The secret of Yogic Healing

Author: Vaidya Atreya Smith

Prana is a Sanskrit word that has many profound meanings. The word is composed of two parts - pra = foreword or before, and ana = breath. What is before breath? Life is before breath and is the cause of breath. One synonym of prana in Sanskrit is Ayur. Prana and Ayur also mean soul (Jiva) and are responsible to hold the soul into the body. Nothing can exist before prana.

Prana is the life force that vitalizes everything in the universe and all systems of natural medicine and healing are based upon an understanding of how to keep this life force in balance. The yogic science of pranayama and its various breathing exercises are based on understanding prana and how to works with it. Atreya combines yogic techniques - breath, prana and Ayurvedic practices - to provide a step-by-step guide to maintaining physical and mental balance. Stressing the importance of connecting both practitioners and patient to a primordial source of well-being he he offers treatments for ailments ranging from asthma to AIDS, from bronchitis to back problems, from the common cold to cancer. Pranic techniques are offered as a complement to Western health care. Using modern illustrations to help new students relax and and relate to the healing process, this book is therapeutic in and of itself - a sure cure for whatever ails you!

First published in 1996 this book is out of print but can be found on Amazon in used editions.
