The Hindu worldview values the interconnection of everything that exists, living and not living. This interconnection has a direct relationship to the health of people and communities. The implications of this are that the western-based mind:body separation is not relevant.
Hindu medicine starts with philosophy and then goes to lifestyle and then to cure, while in the West the cure comes first, followed by lifestyle and then philosophy.
From a Hindu perspective it is important that the patient has faith in the doctor for any treatment to work. It’s also important for doctors to be confident in themselves.
