Like yoga and mediation? Anything else?
Do you believe in any Eastern medicine that can't be explained by Western science?

The benefits of yoga and mediation can be measured by western science, though. For ex. the NIH has a whole webpage on yoga: nccih.nih.gov/health/yoga/introduction.htm#hed50

I think "believe" is a rather strong word. I'm a naturalist through and through, so I find anything that is even slightly esoteric (such as homeopathy) ridiculous. However, having said that, I do think that certain eastern healing methods can be very helpful. In fact, they've even been adopted into the catalogue of my country's health insurance a few years ago after we voted that we want that in a national referendum. I also believe that there may very well be a naturalist explanation for these eastern healing methods even if we don't know it today.
My little sister had extremely bad migraines for years. It became so bad that she couldn't focus on school anymore. My parents tried a hundred different doctors and a hundred different drugs and nothing worked. In the end, it was Chinese medicine that completely cured her of her migraines.0
I believe the power of the brain is immense. I'm not sure about curing physical illness, but it sure can cure mental, emotional and psychological problems.
An example: A lady goes from being fine to believing she's fat, when in reality, she's skinny. Her brain has done that. With the right channeling, it can be reversed. Similarly, an insecure person can be trained to be the other way. To be happy and content.0
