Look Beyond, a health and wellness venture started in 2011, is the brainchild of Dr Seema Anand,who was in the city to talk about The Alternate Healing Compendium. “It lists numerous ailments with appropriate alternate healing methods, to help you find a method that resonates with you, and, is designed to serve as a tool for self-healing,” says Dr Seema. From a very early age alternate methods had fascinated Dr Seema and she actively started healing and studying various methods in her 20’s. Today, she teaches close to 20 different kinds of modalities, like energy, colour, sound, angel, and crystal healing at Look Beyond, in New Delhi. For doctor of alternative medicine Seema, self-healing is a possibility, and everyone has the power to control his or her health. Anand, who has been counseling, teaching and studying various methods of healing for more than 20 years, believes, “The best healer for a person is themselves.” “We have the power to heal ourselves, and that power can be greatly enhanced by various alternate modalities and tools, such as aromatherapy, color and sound,” she adds. Seema has collected her approaches and instructions for treatment in her new book ‘The Alternate Healing Compendium’. The guide is designed to serve as a tool for self-healing, as it highlights common ailments, ranging from heart attacks and strokes to dyslexia and autism, and provides the steps for treatment that complement conventional medicine practices. “There is no mystery about alternate modalities,” Seema says. “There is no ingestion of chemicals or a build up of toxins. The worst that can happen when using an alternate healing method is that the status quo is maintained; the best is that you are healed.” For over 18 years Dr Seema Anand has been studying, researching and teaching varied alternative methods, remedies, and therapies. “We believe that everyone can lead a productive life by developing a healthy and confident mind. We teach people the art of understanding themselves better and then leveraging their strengths to help them pursue a fulfilling life in all its dimensions,” Seema says.
