Applications in Cancer Treatment
A cure for cancer exists through the use of yoga, a San Antonio, Tex
as, cancer specialist said during a seminar in Oklahoma City in the
But physicians refused to acknowledge the cure, said Col. Hansa Rava
l, M.D., a pathologist with the United States Army. Dr. Raval said h
er work in cytotechnology _ a diagnostic branch of medicine designed
to pinpoint early stages of cancer _ was fruitless until she began
researching the use of non-conventional methods of treatment.
The specialist said she witnessed the use of Raja yoga and meditatio
n cure crippling arthritis, headaches and even cancer.
And even though Raval offers proof, which she said was collected du
ring two years of study at the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Unive
rsity in India, she has been dismissed by other members of the medi
cal profession as a kook.
Yoga's success as a treatment method is due to another hypothesis R
aval proposes that 98 percent of all cancer is psychosomatic.
This is not chanting or mantra reciting, the physician said. It's not bas
ed on scriptures. It's not a cult. It's not biofeedback. It's deeper than
that. This is a full-proof method of meditation, a detailed understandin
g of what the soul is.
Raval maintains that medical schools belittle the study of non-conv
entional methods of cancer treatment in favor of conventional metho
ds such as radiation, chemotherapy, and treatment through machines.
Medical schools teach students that the human being is only a body.
But the mind has the power to cure the body. By definition, psycho
somatic means a combination of mind, or soul and body.
The soul creates the disease, but the body suffers. If the psyche crea
tes the disease, the only way to cure it is through the psyche. It's a
very simple formula: treating the seed of the problem.
Further, studies in parapsychology all point to the treatment of illness
through treatment of the soul.
