Introduction: The Yoga Prana Vidya (YPV) System promotes conscious Self-care actions of individuals through informed evidence-based practices. The authors discuss in this paper the concepts with practical applications and examples of evidence from field data.

Method: This is a case series study with a compilation of field data of YPV interventions of multiple cases healed by YPV healers. 

Results: In the case series of a sample of 42 patients (including men, women, and children) analysed, who availed of Self-care non-medical drugless YPV interventions, all achieved noteworthy positive results. The care given was affordable with easy access (through distal healing in most cases).

Conclusions: Self-care interventions such as the Yoga Prana Vidya System without any use of drugs can meet a range of health needs, including quality, reliability, evidence-based, and age-appropriate health information. YPV enables the availability and accessibility of moderated self-care interventions; and cost-effective care. In contrast, a range of medical healthcare systems’ challenges often impede the ability of people to access or use healthcare.
