As the Greek physician and philosopher Hippocrates once said, we are “an integral part of the cosmos”. For him, all diseases have a natural cause and our balance and health are directly related to the environment in which we live.
This idea is also close to the oriental conception of medicine, according to which diseases are energetic imbalances caused by elements that surround us, our feelings and our emotional states. Oriental medicine is based on the theory that health is achieved through a balance between Yin and Yang, two opposing and inseparable forces. Yin represents the cold and passive aspects of the person, Yang represents fire, excitement and its active aspects.
According to these conceptions, the body must be apprehended as a whole. And this consideration of the body as a whole and the elements that surround it in the search for its well-being is, without doubt, one of the main goals of alternative therapies.
