Is cleanliness a vital part of healing?

Master Stephen Co
Alternative & Complementary Medicine
Cleanliness is a vital part of every healing approach. Traditional medicine seeks to minimize dirt and germs that cause infection. That’s why a nurse swabs an open cut with peroxide, and a surgeon thoroughly scrubs his hands and arms before operating. Nontraditional energy medicine, too, is concerned with cleanliness: It seeks to remove energetic contamination from the aura that could lead to health problems. In India certain healers wave a peacock feather over the body, and in the Philippines, healers brush the patient with a special broom. All these modalities are quite different, but the philosophy behind them is the same: In order to be healthy, the body must be clean of impurities, whether they are microbes or dirty prana.
