We have no idea when humans started developing ways of dealing with disease, pain, and injury. But what is clear, is that these modalities have existed for ages. Alternative or folk medicine is the result of many influences, including religious, cultural, and social practices, as well as trial and error. Over a long period of time, many of these practices have assumed the characteristics of the cultures and the people who utilize them.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) consists of a broad range of practices that fall outside of traditional Western medical approaches to care. In contrast, folk remedies include treatments that have been passed down through generations in families, as well as practices that have long been in existence, like Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, spirituality, yoga, acupuncture, mind/body medicine, homoeopathy, naturopathy, and healing therapy, among others.
Traditional folk medicine tends to see the cause of an illness as a lack of harmony or an imbalance. Connections are seen between someone’s health and their environment, for which they must take personal responsibility. The treatment involves complex practices that take a holistic approach, which often includes a form of energy to provide balance and harmony. Studies show that more than 35% of Americans use some form of CAM practices, of which Caucasian Americans and Asian Americans are the leading ethnicities using these practices.
Psymentology and Faradarmani: New Age Complementary Medical Practices
Many “new age” and complementary medical practices have reemerged or have been discovered in recent decades. Erfan Halgheh, or Interuniversalism, is the philosophy of founder Mohammad Ali Teheri who perished in January 2015 from a hunger strike. The Iranian regime has kept his death and its location secret in an attempt to abolish his teachings and the facts surrounding his death. The Daily Telegraph News quoted the director of the Taheri Campaign, Shahnaz Niroomanesh, saying to reporters, “I confirm that Dr. Mohammad Ali Taheri, our spiritual leader, died as a result of being tortured while on a hunger strike objecting to his death sentence.”
Psymentology and Faradarmani are two complementary medicines and subdivisions of Interuniversalism. They both started out as secular, or non-religious, form of healing with a completely holistic viewpoint regarding the human being. This spiritual view considers man as not just flesh and bones, but as something as vast as existence itself. According to this, human beings consist of hundreds of bodies, starting with the physical body, the mental body, psychological body, archive body, astral body, etc.
Psymentology and Faradarmani: The Therapy
Many people today are proponents of “consciousness” philosophies and of theories about the existence of a “universal consciousness” and its beneficial properties. Faradarmani is considered a treatment for physical illnesses and psychological disorders, as well as psychosomatic diseases. Psymentology treatments of mental, somatic, and mind/psyche/body illnesses are handled in quite a unique way. The healer performing these types of therapies is known as the “worker,” who is able to channel universal consciousness into the patient to bring about a natural healing. The treatment and healing can occur in person or from a distance.
While the patient is undergoing these procedures, he or she is being scanned to reveal the parts of the body that are defective or diseased. Once the symptoms are eliminated, the treatment is initiated. Since consciousness does not consist of matter or energy, the limitations of time and space don’t apply. This is why healing through this modality can occur from close up as well as from afar. Consciousness can’t be quantified or measured; its manifestations can only be seen through its effects on the patient. The worker or therapist does not take credit for any healing. The essential condition for the treatment to work and healing to occur is based on the patient that needs to be an unbiased observer with no preconceptions.
Patients can feel the scanning as pain, a spasm, a seizure, a throng, a sensation of hot or cold, of seeing color or lights, feeling sore, an itch, etc., with a session typically lasting 20 to 30 minutes. A number of benefits are commonly reported by patients, such as feeling noticeably relaxed, higher energy levels, less stress, pain relief, and an overall greater sense of well-being. The founder used to designate who could and could not practice these types of spiritual healings. Today, one must take specific courses to become an instructor and it’s the instructors who are able to bestow the Faradarmani connection upon their students. Both practical and theoretical subjects make up the required courses.
The theoretical subjects consist of learning about universal common intelligence and its network and universal consciousness, as well as the different forms of connecting to universal consciousness for healing in person and long distance. The practical subjects include learning how to make the connection to universal consciousness, how to conduct healing in person and long distance. For this practical part of the coursework, students have no reading or writing assignments and are not asked to memorize anything.
The Practice and The Practitioner
Before a student can be designated to practice, they must sign an agreement of use, which allows the student to have the right to practice, but prevents him or her from claiming they have the power and taking credit rather than letting others know that there is a universal intelligence and consciousness that brought about their healing. The agreement also discusses his or her rights and responsibilities in using this practice and that it must only be done in a humanitarian way. The practitioner must be reminded that they should not claim that any outcome of their practices is due to themselves or their own abilities and talents. This is to prevent the practitioner after a couple of healings, from becoming full of self-pride, attributing the outcomes to their own personal power.
The practitioner has a responsibility, as a part of their signed agreement, to provide accurate information to their patients, informing them that this phenomenon results from universal consciousness, that when one is aligned with universal consciousness, the impossible becomes possible.
Problems can occur when we are referred to as the only group of people who can perform these healings or do such things, as a result of their own individual talents and/or abilities. This is why practitioners must sign the agreement so that they are forced to inform their patients that the source of healing is universal consciousness and not their own powers or talents. This will prevent unfounded rumors from getting around about people with the power to heal or cure disease instead of the truth, which is that universal consciousness is the source.
