Dr. Bernhard Schweiger, Germany Dr. of medicine - PtC-Germany: Department medicine and spiritual health The Spiritual Element in Medicine The art of healing – ethics and spirituality Healing - a process of awareness If you examine the medical systems of industrialised countries and the university medicine which still dominates them, one thing becomes obvious: The so-called scientific medicine has lost contact to the humanities almost entirely. This kind of medicine has developed into a medicine without any soul, in which people have been degraded to mere objects and by now have mostly developed into objects of financial aspirations. Today, hospitals are usually profit-gaining bodies with their patients as a productive factor. Can a patient still be healed accurately under these circumstances and what was originally meant by healing?
B.K. BRIJ MOHAN ANAND, India Heal the Heart to Heal the World With the onset of globalisation, consumerism and mechanised lifestyle public health has become a major issue of concern. In a world that is increasingly affected by pollution, poverty, junk food, mechanised work and hectic work schedule, health has taken a hard blow and people are investing more time and money to preserve their health. A few decades ago globalisation was touted as the mantra of development and it was supposed to help people and businesses make better choices to improve the environment, health, economy and overall well-being of humans on a global level. What has happened over the decades in the name of development is a different story. It has been a skewed process that has created imbalance at multiple levels of human existence. Our development policies have been lop-sided – mainly centred on feeding the body and starving the soul.
