Ayurvedic Healing through Planting
Among the Ayurvedic methods of working with plants, there is such a subtle method as treatment by growing plants. This treatment is unique in that the doctor receives permission from the hierarchy of the Universe to create a specific recovery entity (elemental) for a patient. The Vedas tell us that there are 33 million personalities, each in charge of specific processes on Earth.
Each plant has a connection with a certain representative of the Universe who can be helpful in healing a specific illness. Although this method can bring quick results, it is not always used because not every doctor is trained in this.
You can’t dig a plant up somewhere – you need to buy seedlings or young plants, plant them, take care of the sprouts, water them, prune them, and so on.
Which tree for which ailment.
Linden eliminates fear. It is also the strongest protector of the kidneys. If a person takes care of it, the effect multiplies.
Birch combines the energy of the Sun and the Moon and aligns celestial and earthly energy flow. All Slavic people revered the birch as a sacred tree, a combination of white and black, of heaven and earth. It combines energies in their optimal state and treats any disease at the stage of unbalanced doshas, before physical symptoms have appeared.
Poplar is a tree associated with Lord Shiva. It is the only plant capable of absorbing negative pollution of both physical and subtle nature, and is especially well suited to large cities.
Poplar harmonizes the space of the city, cleans the atmosphere, and protects from disasters, including man-made. It increases the possibility of independence from society and promotes breadth of thinking to free the consciousness from media, rumors, and panic. Planting poplars and taking care of them can be used to treat neuroses and psychoses as well as developmental slowdowns in children.
Pine is needed for people with a weak inner core, who are chaotic, unable to keep their word, or cannot find their goal. Planting pine also treats diseases of the spine. On the subtle plane it helps one to become free, calm, and independent. Gradually, the will strengthens and the person becomes more stable.
Fir trees help with all diseases associated with aggression, such as hypertension, migraine, chronic arachnoiditis, early-onset atherosclerosis of the brain, and frequent head injuries. However, one important thing to remember here is that if a person is not in harmony with Skanda deity, you should not plant a fir tree near your own house, because the house can burn up or be robbed. To plant a spruce near someone else’s house or in other places is quite safe for the planter and for all those around him.
Fruit trees which are juicy and have a sweet taste and a pleasant aroma (e.g., pear, peach, apricot, plum, mango) are associated with the energy of Lakshmi Devi (Goddess of fortune). They can be planted by people who think that love is the main goal in life and are trying to convince their loved ones of it.
Rowan tree is beneficial for blood diseases, anemia, and leukemia.
Maple tree is favorable for bronchial asthma and other diseases of the respiratory system.
Willow is good for diseases of the stomach and intestine.
Palm and cedar planting helps heart diseases.
Boxwood and yew might be planted in case of cancer. These trees are also known to promote longevity.
Oaks planting facilitates the healing of liver problems.
