The science and tradiontional medicine that was previously same, and then parted away, are now approaching reunion. In Ayurvedic literature, living body is considered as amalgam of earth, water, fire, air and space and they make not just the physical composition but also the mind and the spirit. 5000 years ago, ancient spiritual tradition of India spoke of a universal energy called Prana. This universal energy is the source of all life. Scientific evidence provides tangible proof of the existence of body‘s energy and its relation to the health & well-being. Bio energetic medicine is the branch of medicine which deals with the treatment of subtle body and deals with healing through five senses, meridians and energy healing. Epigenetics is a new science that is exploring the effect of the environment on cellular behavior. The "environment" includes all aspects i.e physical, social, and electromagnetic environment as well as beliefs, perceptions, lifestyle, habits, behaviors, and mind-body practices such as Pranic healing.
