This volume studies the relationships between ancient systems of Asian philosophy and medicine. It explores the mutually dependent relation between the mind and the body, and argues that Asian and Hippocratic medical systems as well as the body and consciousness should not be studied in isolation. Bringing together medical practitioners and researchers—including specialists of ayurveda, siddha, unani, homoeopathy, Sowa-Rigpa, naturopathy, yoga, and acupuncture based on the Chinese system-from different parts of Asia, including India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar and Bangladesh, this volume demonstrates how ancient medical traditions can be used for improving the physical and mental health of people today. Printed Pages: 174.
