Author Info
Dharma Singh Khalsa M.D.
A classically-trained physician who has always believed in yoga and meditation, Dharma Singh Khalsa was one of the first doctors to treat patients using both Eastern healing techniques and traditional Western medicine. Born in Ohio, Khalsa first studied yoga while he while a medical student at Creighton University School of Medical School in Omaha, NE. He also studied alternative medicine at the UCLA Medical Acupuncture for Physicians and the Mind/Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School. In 1979, while working as an anesthesiologist in Albuquerque, that he met Yogi Bhajan, learned the once-secret wisdom of Kundalini yoga, and became a practicing Sikh. In his practice, Khalsa introduced meditation, acupuncture, and other alternative treatments for illness, pain, stress, other medical conditions. ||Khalsa has researched long term resilience of brain into advanced age (he served for many years as the president of the Alzheimer's Prevention Foundation in Tucson). In the late 1990s Khalsa became a popular speaker and author. His 1997 book BRAIN LONGEVITY, which prescribes healthy diet, stress management exercise, meditation, and supplements to counter the effects of aging, Alzheimer's, head trauma, and other brain dysfunction. In his second, THE PAIN CURE (1999) he suggests a regime of physical therapy, healthy diet, medication, and meditative pain control. MEDITATION AS MEDICINE (2001) zeros in on a number of chronic ailments (which are backed up by successful case histories) with medical meditation, a technique Khalsa developed based on his expertise in Kundalini Yoga.
From the Publisher
Annotation The proven health benefits of meditation include reduced chronic pain, fewer heart problems, and lowered blood pressure. Darma Singh Khalsa elucidates his theory of using meditation and the chakras to maximize the body's healing potential. Khalsa divides this text into three parts: an explanation of medical meditation and research showing the mind/body link; a discussion of the healing elements of medical meditation (variations on Kundalini yoga) such as breath, posture, and mental focus; and instruction on how to use the chakras (specific energy points in the body) to boost the body's natural disease-fighting power.
