Jamuna Rangachari profiles the inspiring story of Inder Singh who not just defeated multiple sclerosis, but in the process has turned into a guide and counselor to others


When my article on healing myself of multiple sclerosis (MS) through acupuncture got published in Life Positive, I forwarded it to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI), so other patients could benefit. Through this organisation, I made my acquaintance with Inder Singh (name changed), an ex-IITan, whose grit and determination have helped him achieve a fantastic victory over this seemingly incurable condition.

In 2000, Inder had difficulty taking more than three steps at a time, and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The neurologist told him there was no cure for this ailment, and he would have to learn to live with it. At 38, the bleak prospect plunged him into depression.

He began by standing for one minute, one leg at a time, and has graduated to standing for 12 minutes on each leg, which is a redoubtable achievement even for the healthy.

At the same time, he scoured the internet for new solutions. He had read in the Harrison Internal Guide that lack of Vitamin D is the primary cause of multiple sclerosis, and that turmeric could perhaps be effective in resolving this deficiency. His research also showed him that turmeric improved the immune system. He bought and still buys fresh turmeric which is easily available in India, and consumes one inch of turmeric after boiling it with water every night.

Incidentally, today considerable research is being conducted in medical circles on the efficacy of
