I AS A PEDIATRICIAN DOCTOR -
  • started practicing Pediatrics medicine from 1998
    in Hyderabad.
  • I used to save many lives of Emergency children
    Patients as a Doctor. Patients used to come to me
    in emergencies i.e just before death condition -
    like severe Breathlessness, severe dehydration,
    meningitis, seizures, refusal of milk feeds by
    new born babies, neonatal jaundice with
    septicemia etc. many lives were saved by me. I
    became very famous Doctor near BHEL. People used
    to identify me where ever I go, I thought that I
    was more than a God. But I was an atheist.

  • BUT in 2002 I met an road accident and was on bed
    for 8 months with both lower limbs fracture, then
    I realized many aspects of healing about life
    more than Medicine.
  • I suffered trauma pain due to fracture leg
    -physical trauma, social trauma, emotional
    trauma, psychological trauma, vocational trauma
    and spiritual.
  • Many persons in this multi trauma may die not
    because of actual physical trauma but due to the
    stress of other traumas.

Astrology bydr prema kumar sharma
  • Before I met an road accident in 2002, I was an
    atheist but now I believe in God because of
    Astrology. His Astrology predictions helped me in
    many ways everyday issues of Health, children and
    Family, Career and Finance. Before investing
    money I followed Astro predictions and saved from
    losses. As Astrology found correct on myself
    every day and Astro science should be correct.
  • Eg. Health special care for blood pressure
    patients. Remember that increase in blood
    pressure exerts more strain on the functioning of
    the heart. You should therefore strive to lower
    your blood pressure and keep the cholesterol
    under control. Meditation, a low salt intake and
    diet on your part could check the problem to a
    great extent.

ASTROLOGY / GOD ?
  • I am a strong believer of science. Without
    evidence I dont believe anything. Astrologist
    prediction about my accident was correct. Then I
    believed in Astrology after I met an accident /
    trauma. if I believe Astrology is correct, then
    Astrology science - about planets influence on
    our daily life should be correct. If I believe
    this, then super power controlling this universe
    The God existence should be correct. Then I
    became the Believer of God.
  • I found that just physical healing is not enough
    but more to know- next let us to our topic

Presentation Outcome GoalsParticipants will be
able to
  • Define Definition of complete Health and
    Spiritual health and have awareness of the
    benefits of spirituality in the care of patients,
    especially patients at the end of life as based
    on the examination of research.
  • Identify what spiritual needs are, and how to
    respond to spiritual and emotional needs.
  • Recognize that ones own spirituality might
    affect how one might relate to, and provide care
    to patients. Develop awareness of personal issues
    that might hinder one from providing spiritual
    care.

11
mind, body, spirit and the mystery of life and
death
  • WHO defined health as a state of physical, mental
    and social wellbeing added to which are the
    emotional, vocational and spiritual components.
    Health doesnt mean absence of disability or
    infirmity.
  • Physical health is because of proper nutrition,
    exercise, hygiene, awareness of various infective
    and chronic ailments etc.

  • Psychological health is by way of having right
    thoughts and attitudes and by way of
    understanding ones own psychological patterns.
    Nurturing rewarding patterns and erasing the
    unrewarding patterns is a right way of
    maintaining ones mental health. 
  • Emotional Health is developing emotional balance
    and harmony which is very much required in the
    present world containing a lot of stimuli to make
    one a reactive person. Letting-go ones emotional
    impressions lying in the form of anxiety, fears,
    insult and guilt etc makes one an emotionally
    intelligent

13
  • Social health is about having happy and
    harmonious relationships with the family members
    and professional colleagues. Respecting others
    choices makes one socially healthy. Having a
    right approach of inter-dependence makes one
    socially healthy. 
  • Vocational Health is about the job satisfaction
    and financial abundance. Having money in the
    pocket makes one feel confident in this world of
    money needs. Choosing a right job which suits
    ones passions and needs makes one vocationally
    healthy.

14
  • Spiritual health is all about having a purpose of
    life and developing the understanding that one is
    going to vacate the physical body on one day and
    there is no guarantee of physical existence of
    the body. The values and an attitude of
    contentment make one spiritually healthy.
  • As per the above definition, most of the people
    are not healthy - only a few are enjoying the
    complete dimensions of health and these are the
    ones who understood the meaning and value of
    health in all its aspects.  

15
Definitions Spirituality
  • Spirituality refers to a belief in a higher
    power, an awareness of life and its meaning, the
    centering of a person with purpose in life. It
    involves relationships with a higher being, with
    self, and with the world around the individual..
    Spirituality implies living with moral standards.
  • The spirit of a human is his essence, that
    part of him or her that is not visible. The part
    that does not die but is immortal. Webster
    defines spirit as a life giving force and as
    the active presence of God in human life.

    meaning purpose in life and relates to the
    inner essence of the self

18
MSOP Report III regarding spirituality
  • Spirituality is recognized as a factor that
    contributes to health in many persons. The
    concept of spirituality is found in all cultures
    and societies. It is expressed in an
    individuals search for ultimate meaning through
    participation in religion and / or belief in God,
    family, naturalism, rationalism, humanism and the
    arts. All these factors can influence how
    patients and health care professionals perceive
    health and illness and how they interact with one
    another.

    can last from 2 to 14 days. Although billions of
    cases of common cold show up every year, we
    Doctors still know very little about it.
  • 3) Cancer treatments like use of chemotherapeutic
    drugs, radiation therapy or surgery are currently
    available but even if they can lengthen the life

    of the most important vaccinations given to
    children, but as far as cure is concerned, Polio
    is incurable. The widespread awareness about
    polio vaccines has eliminated the disease from
    many countries but it continues to paralyse a
    substantial number of children in the African and
    South Asian countries.

23
medical science cannot cure or are very
challenging -
  • Spiritual Healing is for all people who have
    ailments that, for what ever reasons, medical
    science cannot cure or are very challenging and
    resources are low or procedures are lengthy and
    life threatening... such as
  • depression, kidney failure, asthma, mental
    disorder, disabilities, arthritis, phobia,
    cancer, insomnia, diabetes, nightmares,
    claustrophobia, domestic violence, other family
    issues, pregnancy problems, financial issues,
    unemployment, loss in business, internal health
    problems (men women), stones, piles, heart
    problems, etc. For such people there is the path
    of spiritual healing and by prayer.

psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy

    mind can influence our body organs health.
  • Stress / negative thinking - in mind can lead to
    changes in the body somatisation, diseases
    which is proved by medical Science. There are
    some Drugs which can block this and relieve from
    disease like methyldopa for BP etc., but not for
    all diseases

    God, and the bewilderment and pain that results.

The human DNA is a biological internet and
superior in many aspects to the artificial one.
Russian scientific research directly or
indirectly explains phenomena such as
clairvoyance (Divya Drushti), intuition,
spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self
healing, affirmation techniques, unusual

DO YOU KNOW THAT OUR SPIRIT, MIND AND BODY IS
COMMUNICATING WITH GOD LIKE INTERNET (BY UNKNOWN
WAY) BY THINKING
  • One can simply use words and sentences of the
    human language! This, too, was experimentally
    proven! Living DNA substance (in living tissue,
    not in vitro) will always react to
    language-modulated laser rays and even to radio
    waves, if the proper frequencies are being used.
  • God and spiritual teachers have known for ages
    that our body is programmable by language, words
    and thought. This has now been scientifically
    proven

body, mind and soul influence each other
  • Health  A healthy mind resides in a healthy
    body. This is not the simple phrase but the
    mantra, which you are going to follow. This would
    enable you to enhance mental toughness besides
    maintaining a sound physical health .

Remote healing, telepathy or remote sensing -
Animals also have
  • We now know that just as on the internet our DNA
    can feed its proper data into the network, can
    call up data from the network and can establish
    contact with other participants in the network.
  • Remote healing, telepathy or remote sensing
    about the state of relatives etc.. can thus be
    explained. Some animals know also from afar when
    their owners plan to return home / Birds BEFORE
    cyclone / Before tsunami an elephants behaviour
    as seen in Kerala. That can be freshly
    interpreted and explained via the concepts of
    group consciousness and hyper communication.

DNA CAN BE INFLUENCED BY EXTERNAL STIMULI / LIGHT
AND IT CAN STORE DATA
  • DNA It apparently is also an organic
    superconductor that can work at normal body
    temperature. Artificial superconductors require
    extremely low temperatures of between 200 and
    140C to function. As one recently learned, all
    superconductors are able to store light and thus
    information. This is a further explanation of how
    the DNA can store information.

Yoga - Unity
  • The Sanskrit word 'Yoga' literally translates to
    'unity' and this is the essence and aim of this
    ancient science uniting your soul with the one
    big soul which is called God, the universe and
    has many more names. Yoga helps you to reach this
    goal of being one with this energy. You get to
    know your body, mind and soul and thus reach a
    new balance in your life which is then filled
    with happiness and joy. Yoga has changed many
    lives, let it change yours, too!
  • Benefits of Yoga Physical Health and Fitness
    through Yoga Poses
  • It is known as a fact that yoga strengthens the
    body and gives it much more flexibility. There is
    an enourmous variety of Asanas (different yoga
    positions) which stretch, bend and flex each
    muscle of your body and of course cover all
    levels of experience. It is wrong to think that
    you have to be flexible to do yoga - everybody
    can!

HOW TO HEAL YOUR BODY BY YOURSELF
  • Yoga helps to ease pain in joints and muscles and
    to relief tension as well as it improves the
    respiratory system and support digestion and
    intestines. There are yoga postures for each part
    of the body whether it is the back, your neck,
    your joints, your belly or your feet. It is for
    the whole body. And of course you can practice
    yoga for weight loss with exercises concentrating
    especially on those areas where you feel you have
    extra fat. Practicing yoga is thus just wonderful
    for your health and fitness.
  • Mental and Emotional Health and Well-Being
  • Although Yoga is known mostly for its benefits on
    physical health, that is only a part of this
    science. Another part is the work and effect that
    it has on mind and emotions. The regular practice
    of yoga exercises, Prana yama (breathing
    techniques) and meditation has a very relaxing
    and calming effect on the mind and it balances
    the emotions in the body as there is a time in
    which everything can come to peace. Meditation is
    additionally proven to enhance concentration and
    focus which helps us think faster and in more
    flexible ways.
  • Yoga as a whole is considered therapeutic as it
    doesn't only offer treatment through exercise to
    the body but can also heal mental disorders and
    improve conditions like depression or bipolar as
    it gives stability and balance.

41
Learn to heal yourself
  • you can get to know how everybody can apply these
    laws on his life.
  • The Indian healer Swami Balendu Ji teaches the
    ways to self-healing. During a meditative retreat
    of more than three years isolated from the world,
    he adjusted his own energy to these new
    frequencies. This intensive retreat did not only
    help him to fully realize his connection to the
    universe but also induced him to spread this
    energy all over the world. Swami Ji's healing
    work is based on the interaction of body, mind
    and soul and to heal the entity of body, mind and
    soul.

42
Children can heal you
  • Children are more Spiritual. Child is a big soul
    in a small body and adult is a small soul in a
    big body. Spend valuable time with children when
    ever possible / depressed / fear / anxiety etc.
    It is the best form of healing for adults. They
    are the source of unlimited joy.
  • Health  Dont forget to put a special thrust
    on the physical education along with the mental
    because only by that way you can fully develop
    yourself. Remember a healthy mind is possible in
    a healthy body.

43
Health 
  • Health  It is high time to get rid of the
    habit of always complaining and getting upset
    over trivial issues. Keep in mind that indulgence
    in these kinds of things badly affects health.
    You should rather cultivate a generous attitude
    towards life to make it easy as well as happy.
  • Change lifestyle if you want to get immediate
    relief from your prolong tension and strains of
    life. In this exercise is must and leads to a
    healthy and disease-free life. It also helps in
    burning off those extra calories. Therefore make
    exercise a part of your daily routine while smile
    your biggest armour.

Spiritual healing
  • one-line definition "It is only positive
    energy." Simple, but mystifying
    nonetheless.Spiritual healing is a no-touch
    therapy.
  • It comprises of eight techniques, including
  • crystal healing,
  • pillar of light, and
  • sound therapy.
  • "Even the spell of negative entities can be
    broken by it," says Ratra. "We keep on
    invoking sanjeevani shakti (positive life forces)
    and flood the body with it. Slowly the negative
    entity is overpowered and withdraws." In crystal
    healing, for example, you put the crystal on the
    crown chakra (energy center), move it to capture
    the negative forces before making it touch the
    earth. Once the negative energy is thrown out,
    you invoke sanjeevani shakti and fill the
    resulting vacuum with positive energy. 

50
spiritual healing
  • Ratra first initiates his students
    to Shaktipat (transmission of energy from teacher
    to disciple to awaken the kundalini,
    the spiritual energy latent at the base of the
    human spine). Once this happens, one can tap 32
    types of sanjeevani shakti. "For each person and
    ailment, there is a particular sanjeevani
    shakti," says Ratra. And spiritual healing is not
    confined to people even places with negative
    forces can be turned positive. According
    to Ratra, spiritual healing helps resolve all
    kinds of problemsphysical, emotional and
    financial. He have found it extremely effective
    in cases of disturbed relationship".

Science cannot answer -how to create life,
but we are living. -We cannot stop natural
calamities and we are suffering
  •  Spiritual Healing is a very gentle way of
    giving your child the energy to cope with their
    anxiety, an ability to express themselves, and
    the means to heal themselves. How does this
    work? Who can say? And, what difference does it
    make? Many have dissected our spiritualness, and
    pieced the healing act back together in an
    attempt to understand it. Whatever conclusions
    they come to are no more than personal
    interpretation. I used to worry about it a lot,
    because I come from a scientific background, but
    I realise science cannot answer my questions, and
    so I stopped asking. I'm always amazed that
    healing works in the way that it does.

53
Should Children Have  Spiritual Healing?
  • Yes, of course they should! In fact, I'd go so
    far as to say, I think ALL children should have
    spiritual healing, perhaps even on a regular
    basis, both for their body, mind and soul. There
    is nothing more beautiful, and certainly nothing
    less harmful to a child than spiritual healing.
    It is the most natural form of healing in the
    world.- See more at http//www.distanthealer.co.

2) Religion
  • Religion is an organized and public belief system
    of worship and practices that generally has a
    focus on a god or supernatural power. It
    generally offers an arrangement of symbols and
    rituals that are meaningful and understood by
    its followers.
  • Religion is primarily a set of beliefs, a
    collection of prayers, or rituals. Religion is
    first and foremost a way of seeing. It cant
    change the facts about the world we live in, but
    it can change the ways we see those facts, and
    that in itself can often make a difference.
    (Harold Kushner)

57
Spirituality
  • Thousands of alcoholic patients who found little
    help from traditional medicine were able to
    become sober and remain abstinent by relying on
    a power greater than themselves and through the
    support of a twelve step program.
  • Many may not adhere to a religious institution,
    but have a spiritual practice.

58
Spirituality
  • Spirituality fulfills specific needs
  • Meaning to life, illness, crises, and death
  • Sense of security for present and future
  • Guides daily habits
  • Elicits acceptance or rejection of other people
  • Provides psychosocial support in a group of
    like-minded people
  • Strength when facing lifes crises
  • Healing strength and support

    dreams
  • Obtaining a spiritual history
  • Attentiveness to all dimensions of the patient
    and patients family body, mind and spirit

In Every Culture We Find Evidence of the Search
for Meaning
  • Why am I here?
  • What should I do with my life?
  • How do I order my priorities?
  • Where can I find guidance about the good life
    or the life well lived?

61
These Are Questions of Meaning
  • Questions of meaning and purpose are often
    described as spiritual issues.
  • These questions are part of being human, they
    transcend culture, religion, ethnicity, they are
    universal.

Separation of Medicine from Religion
  • As science began to discover the etiology of
    diseases, former religious explanations no longer
    held.
  • Science and medicine began to distance themselves
    from religion God of the gaps (in knowledge).

Mans Search for MeaningVictor Frankl
  • Sometimes external circumstances in our life
    situation are beyond our control.
  • Frankl maintains that the attitude we choose to
    take toward our life situation is within our
    control.
  • The spiritual journey relates to our inner
    struggle to shape our attitude toward illness and
    even death itself.

Studies of 203 patients in Kentucky and North
Carolina. . .
  • 77 wanted physicians to consider their spiritual
    needs
  • 37 wanted physicians to discuss these needs more
    frequently
  • 48 wanted their physicians to pray with them if
    they could
  • 68 said their physicians never discussed
    religious beliefs with them at all.

67
Mind-body Medicine
  • The scientific connection between spirituality
    and healing has been made.
  • Spiritual belief systems have a role in healing
    body, mind, and soul.
  • When we activate or intensify our spiritual
    belief systems, healing power expands.
  • This gives health care professionals, patients,
    and everyone access to an expanded reservoir of
    healing power.
  • This is very good news. However, this is not easy
    to do in medical practice.
  • There are many barriers.

68
Recent surveys by NIHR find (National Institute
for Health Research)
  • 43 of physicians pray for their patients,
  • 90 of doctors at the American Academy of Family
    Physicians 1996 meeting agreed that a patients
    spiritual beliefs can be helpful in his or her
    medical treatment
  • 58 have actively pursued information on

Problems Entering the Spiritual Domain
  • We dont work with Spirit.
  • We are not comfortable talking about religion.
  • We have no language or map.
  • We ignore or refer to spiritual counselors.
  • Lack of training
  • Belief systems are personal, intimate, complex.
  • Many have a traumatic religious history.
  • Fierce feelings and defensiveness
  • Fear of unravel to the abyss (The Cheeseburger)
  • Enormous variation and level of commitment
  • There is no timebrief appointments, paper work
  • How to enter without losing life, limb, or
    property.

  • Community support from like-minded people
  • Behavior good habits such as no smoking,
    drinking, or drugs healthy diet
  • Thought the power of positive thought--faith,
    hope, belief, optimism, and much more
  • Feeling the healing power of positive emotion
    such as peace, love, joy, compassion
  • Spiritual practice expansion of the healing
    power from spiritual practices such as yoga,
    meditation, mindfulness, and prayer

75
Mind-body Medicine
  • Mind-body medicine teaches us how to apply the
    power of the mind to healing and pain management.
  • Most medical schools now address mind-body
    principles in their general curricula.

76
Mind-body Medicine Principles
  • There is no separation between mind and body.
  • The mind is connected to every cell in the body.
  • In some yet to be determined way, thoughts have
    leverage in the inner workings of our cells
    having to do with
  • disease and healing
  • pain management

77
Mind-body Medicine Principles
  • We can harness the untapped power of the mind
    for
  • expansion of healing power
  • pain control

78
Mind-body Medicine Principles
  • Pain Management
  • Often we cannot take disease away, but we can
    always help with pain management.
  • Pain is both physical and psychological.
  • All pain is experienced in the mind and can
    therefore be modulated by the mind.
  • We can control pain so pain does not control our
    lives.

79
Mind-body Medicine Principles
  • We think of high-tech medicine as real and
    mind-body principles as touchy-feely. This is
    reductionistic and wrong.
  • We are bio psycho social and spiritual beings. A
    disturbance in any one of these leads to
    disturbances in the others.
  • Therefore, comprehensive treatment planning
    includes bio psycho social and spiritual
    interventions.
  • There are many ways to do this. No one way works
    for all people

80
Activating Healing PowerIn Four Domains
  • There is an explosion of knowledge and models
    having to do with healing in each of the four
    domains biopsychosocial and spiritual
  • However, there is no time to do it all Managed
    care, fifteen minute appointments, paper work,
    and so on
  • How can we activate healing power in all four
    domains given the limitation of time and system
    problems?
  • Good news it can be done through skills training
    and self-help

81
Step 3 The Compromise
  • However, suffering is unavoidable.
  • Often we do not accept the inevitable suffering
    of life.
  • Instead, we make a desperate attempt to eliminate
    all of our suffering through faulty mechanisms
    such as the cultivation of bad habits.

  • Yoga, Satsang
  • The Transformation of Emotion

84
TOUCH THERAPY
  • And a touch is love, just like a touch by a
    loving mother when she holds her baby in her
    hands. Doesn't this stop all crying and make all
    pain forgotten?
  • When mother sees or touches her baby she secrets
    her Breast milk (oxytocin Hormone released
    causes milk secretion)

85
  • Yoga and Ayurveda are neglected in India, but
    people in Western countries like USA are
    following Yoga as a daily routine. 20 are Using
    Ayurvedic Herbal Medicines in USA

86
American Psychiatric Association
  • Physicians should maintain respect for their
    patients beliefs. It is useful for physicians
    to obtain information on the religious or
    ideologic orientation and beliefs of their
    patients. . .
  • Physicians should not impose their own religious,
    antireligious, or ideologic systems of belief on
    their patients. . .

Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual
  • Schools of Medicine have been slow to recognize
    appropriate this model of whole person care.
  • The Nursing profession has long recognized the
    spiritual aspects of patient care.
  • Chaplains and clergy have often assisted patients
    with the spiritual aspects of illness and the
    search for meaning purpose.

George H. Grant,M.Div., PhC.
88
Spiritual care defined
  • Spiritual care is recognizing and responding
    to the multifaceted expressions of spirituality
    we encounter in our patients and their families.
    The purpose is to determine the nature of a
    persons relationship to God and other people,
    and to give the person the opportunity to accept
    spiritual support. Themes such as the search for
    meaning, feelings of connection or isolation,
    hope or hopelessness, and fear of dying are all
    clues that a person is struggling with spiritual
    issues.

The divergence between medicine and spirituality
  • Modern medicine has developed marvelous advances
    and interventions, relying more on diagnostic
    procedures and less on patients conversations.
  • Managed care, by limiting the time spent with
    each patient, makes it more difficult to discover
    the patients spiritual concerns and most deeply
    held goals and values.

Where do we find hope?
  • Ultimately from our faith or understanding of our
    relationship to a higher power.
  • The belief that a higher eternal power is in
    control provides meaning and purpose to any
    situation.

96
Question Should nurses / DOCTOR talk about
religion or spirituality with patients?
  • A. You may say no, because a nurse can not be
    expected to be conversant with all religions.
  • B. You may say no, because the nurse may be an
    atheist or non-believer. (Though Ive met very
    few nurses who are.)
  • C. You may say no, that would be an unethical
    intrusion into the privacy of the patient.
  • D. But the answer is yes, particularly when there
    are indications of patient interest or need.

97
Assess for spiritual crises
  • Search for meaning or purpose in ones life.
  • Loss of a sense of connection with people or God.
  • Feelings of guilt or unworthiness
  • No relationship with God
  • Anger, denial, and bitterness expressed toward
    self, others, or God. Questioning of faith
  • Desire for forgiveness
  • Sense of abandonment by God

98
  • Nurses must be compassionate and empathic in
    caring for patients In all of their
    interactions with patients they must seek to
    understand the meaning of the patients stories
    in the context of the patients beliefs and
    family and cultural values. They must continue
    to care for dying patients even when
    disease-specific therapy is no longer available
    or desired.
