5 Questions with Dr Rajan Sankaran, author of Homeopathy for Today's World

For those who haven’t heard, what’s the book all about?

The book deals with questions like what makes each of us unique, what makes each of us feel, perceive, experience, and act in our own unique manner and what is the real cause of the stress in our life is. I have been working on these questions in my practice for the last three decades and has made some  discoveries. I found that stress comes not from external reality but the specific way each of us perceives it. At the deepest level our experience is not of outer reality, but is a constant inner sensation. This core sensation matches something from one of the three kingdoms in nature.  It is as if a specific animal, plant, or mineral lives in each one of us and colors our whole experience of life. It is our constant companion, the other song that keeps singing within us, shapes our personality, determines our life patterns, and is the underlying factor behind our stress. I have set down the knowledge that decades of seeing patients has taught me about the inner other song within each of us in order to guide the reader to awareness of his own other song and find release from it.

What was one of the big things you learned from creating this book?

That truth is simple, and if clearly understood can be conveyed to others. Also that the fundamental truth behind all sciences and art is one. At a deeper level the borders between art, science and philosophy fade. and that music, psychotherapy, homeopathy, art , literature, chemistry, botany, zoology etc all speak of the same truth. This is very beautiful to see and  a very useful tool for healing

Which part of the book was most compelling to you?

The part about the seven levels of our experience. I found that each one of us ca perceive reality in any one of seven levels. The discovery of this is a breakthrough for me. What’s been the most rewarding part of this process?

The most rewarding thing is to find the whole concept useful in knowing myself better

What new projects do you have on the horizon?

I am now heading the newly formed International Academy of Advanced Homeopathy located in Mumbai. it is called "the other song" , and promises the be the one of the world's premier institutions for treating, teaching and research in homeopathy. .

5 Questions with Christopher Vasey, author of The Detox Mono Diet


What inspired you to put this book together?

My motivation was to explain the importance of detoxifying the body in order to regain a good health. An accumulation of toxins is indeed considered in natural medicine as the primary cause of illnesses. Nowadays this overflow of toxins is very common because many people overeat and under exercise. However, overeating doesn’t lead to overweight only but can also – with or without overweight – lead to an intoxication of the body and illness.
Which section of the book did you find easiest and most natural to write?
It was the practical guide to the cure which shows step by step how to proceed: how to prepare for a cure, how to follow the cure itself and how to come out of it. Following a detox cure is not difficult, but a few important points must be respected in order for the cure to be the most effective.
Did the final product come out as you envisioned it when you first started?

Yes, it did. And the layout made by the publisher enhances the important points and makes it easy to read and to understand.

What is the best compliment you have received on the book?
The best compliment is when readers write to tell me that they cured themselves by following the instructions given.

What are some new and upcoming things we can expect from you?
My upcoming book is “The Healing Power of Fever” which will be published in January 2012. It explains that fever is not a hindrance but a help to heal. It tells what to do during fever and shows the practical means to support and control the healing processes which are taking place.
