More and more are working their way out of the thickets of diseases written off by allopathy through the application of alternative therapies. Jamuna Rangachari profiles a number of such inspirational stories
As Charles Dickens observed about another era, we live in the worst of times and the best of times. Our unnatural lifestyles and resultant heavy karma are unleashing a glut of alarmingly severe diseases or conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and autism. On the other hand, we are also living at a time when holistic therapies are exploding across the globe and supporting millions written off as incurable by allopathy to return to health and happiness. We report a few of such cases from millions of documented evidence proving that no matter how severe the problem, karma permitting, we can take control over our health, and manoeuvre it back to normalcy.
DAMM Therapy restores life
“When I first met Rajan Iyer, the person who had restored my life to me, I could not even recognize him, as I had been in a coma when he worked on me. It was only a little later that I came to know what a blessing it was to be bestowed with his touch,” said Bhaskar Rajhen emotionally. And he had good reason to be emotional.
Like many others, Bhaskar had removed his heavy helmet in favour of a smaller one while he was driving all alone one day in October 2012. Alas, that was the day he was fated to meet with an accident that caused severe injury in the skull. His destiny, however, was to live. A passerby immediately called an ambulance and took him to hospital. He was in a complete coma by then. When none of his systems responded to treatment, he was referred to Dr Krishnaswami, founder of TAG VHS Diabetes Research Centre. Dr Krishnaswami was a mentor to Dr Rajan Iyer, who practised a form of therapy called Dynamic Acupuncture Mediated Metaphysical Therapy (DAMM), which had given amazing results in cases that baffled allopaths. Sure enough, after one year of treatment, Bhaskar sprang back to life and health. “The Divine has taken care of me at every stage and held me close when I needed support,” he breathes, gratefully.
Healer Rajan Iyer uses a unique modality of treatment that instils metaphysical energy (he terms this ‘oxygen’ ) inside the dysfunctional cells through acupuncture/acupressure meridians with or without needles. By correcting energy imbalance in the dysfunctional cells, he restores their full function. This has led to the ‘cure’ of a variety of illnesses, like that of Bhaskar Rajhen.
Tibetan Medicine heals MS
|Mrinalini Bali was able to combat MS with the help of Tibetan medicine and her supportive family members|
She went through a protracted period of anguish and uncertainty, before she found a treatment that was helpful, in 2012, when a fellow MS patient asked her to explore Tibetan Medicine. She promptly went and met Dr Yeshi Dhonden at Dharamsala. Within a month there was a perceptible improvement, including reversal of speech slurring and difficulty in walking. Progressively, she began to resume walking, jogging, cycling, driving a car and other activities that she had missed so much in the course of her illness. Apart from the Tibetan medicines, her affectionate bond with her parents, elder brother and her pet beagles made her healthy and happy once again. She shared with me that she never gave up hope, and that her faith in the Divine actually increased in the period when she was unwell. Since then her faith in the Divine has only grown as she gives thanks for all that has been restored to her, including sports and singing.
Cerebral palsy healed by acupuncture
I recently met Lakshita’s parents in the clinic of Dr Abid Khan, a Delhi-based acupuncturist. They were distraught and shaken at the plight of their little three-year-old daughter, who had been born with cerebral palsy, and could do nothing on her own.
Lakshita’s grandfather, Mr Satpal Yadav, had healed completely of a back pain through Dr Khan’s treatment seven years back. He had therefore recommended taking Lakshita there almost as soon as she was born. Dr Khan, however, asked them to return when she turned three, as he was unsure of the baby’s capacity to handle needles. Though a little sceptical, the parents did take her there when she turned three, as there seemed to be no other option. After a month of regular treatment, the little girl is now able to stand on her own which to her mother, Ms Pushpa Yadav, is nothing less than a miracle. Says she, “I am deeply grateful to the grace of God for guiding me to acupuncture. I would like to share this experience with everyone so that they will know that they need never give up on life, no matter what the situation.”
Today Daljit Kaur, a fresh-faced yoga teacher, is the epitome of fitness, but there was a time when ill-health had beleagured her to the point of fatality. Her first problem began in April 1996 when she was operated for gall bladder stones. After that period there were multiple health problems: frequent joint pains, headaches, irritability, anxiety, low energy levels and a tendency to get kidney stones. Thereafter, in November 2003, her health deteriorated rapidly and she was bedridden due to severe osteoporosis, ankylosing spondylitis and cervical spondylitis. She was then diagnosed with parathyroid tumour and underwent surgery successfully. She was advised to do regular exercise and keep her weight in check so as to avoid further health problems. In desperation she signed up for yoga. As she plunged into the routine of asanas, pranayama, pratyahara and so on, she viscerally experienced a return to balance and harmony. Slowly, her ravaged body healed, until her only medication was for thyroid. With a proper diet and regular yoga, even her thyroid got cured in 2014 and she is now able to maintain her thyroid levels without any medicine. Now, as a trained yoga teacher in regular and therapeutic yoga, she is a source of deep inspiration to her students who learn every day by looking at her about the healing power of yoga.
Ayurvedic acupressure heals foot drop
Bhagwan Das, a yoga and naturopathy healer based in Baksar, Bihar, was exposed to acupressure combined with the ayurvedic principles of acupressure, as taught by JP Agarwal of Allahabad, and was practising this since the year 2000.
In 2012, his 13-year-old son, Rohit Kumar, had an accident and developed a hemorrhage, weakness and severe foot drop. There was a surgery but the allopaths could not help him in improving his foot drop. Though Das had learnt acupressure, he took him to Mr Agarwal to take his guidance, learnt the points applicable, and did it regularly for his son. Within a few days, he could see results and ultimately, the boy became completely mobile in three months.
He is now convinced about the effectiveness of natural methods of healing, and thanks God for the guidance given to him.
|The power of green: Anjali Sanghi with son Manikya|
In January 2012, she and her son faced another health challenge. Manikya was constantly suffering from immunity issues with high fevers, cough, cold and stomach upsets. She too began falling sick often. She started praying ardently again. Her previous knowledge of conventional nutrition did not work for them at all. She went organic. Immediately upon shifting to organic produce, Manikya was relieved to a great extent. Still, he was having several supplements, so she felt that the root cause had still not been addressed. On her side, she could no longer digest cooked foods. The answer to her prayers came one day through an outstanding book called The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr Douglas Graham, advocating raw food and veganism, a way of life which eschews animal products altogether, including honey or leather. She immediately followed this and had wonderful results. Manikya too became completely healthy after turning vegan and consuming raw food.
She shares that just within a few days of this wonderful lifestyle, her body started accepting cooked foods also, but the path of this new lifestyle was so rewarding that she consciously chose to progress on it.
She is now an advocate of raw foods and energy healing, and goes all over the country teaching and recommending this practice to others.
In today’s world, we are co-creators of our life in all areas, including that of healing ourselves. Alternative therapies require patient involvement which goes well beyond simply taking a pill. It begins with a willingness to take responsibility for our illness and our healing. In addition to the treatment, quite often, we are required to make drastic changes in diet and lifestyle. To heal our minds and emotions. To void our karma. If we work with a will at all these dimensions, the time will come, as it did
for all those profiled, when the doors of health and well-being will swing open and admit us in.
So remember, all too often, incurable only means curable from within!
