He was using anger so frequently that …

neck-and-shoulder-pain-man

Yesterday a man came for consultation. His problem was that he was experiencing severe pain in the nape of his neck. He also had pain in his biceps, elbow and forearm. He also experienced occasionally severe migraines. He had with him his MRI and reports.

I usually look at reports in the end and always begin with Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis).

I did his Nadi Pariksha and found that he used anger frequently as a means of communication with his wife and colleagues.

Before I began explaining my diagnosis , I wanted to know what treatment he was taking.

I asked him his daily routine. He was a software engineer and his work demanded that he work through the night and sometimes until 4am. He loved his job.  By keeping his body awake through the night his body was consequently multiplying his discomfort and pain.

He was taking physiotherapy and with infrared light. I asked him to stop that immediately.

I looked at his MRI and it only showed a disc bulge. He was lucky.

Neck pain produced due to gas in the stomach or due to constipation is different from neck pain that results from anger. So, even the treatment has to be different.

So, I started explaining the diagnosis to him, that the root cause of his neck pain was his anger.

Anger causes sharp pain that seems as if it is stuck, which you wish you could grab and pluck it out.

He told me that he was indeed expressing anger and in the recent months had learnt to control it.

His recent habit of controlling his anger began when his marriage reached a point of separation. He had to make a choice and that choice was to control his anger.

He didn’t realise that this caused more damage than when he expressed anger. Previously, his anger would affect others and himself. By throwing his anger out, he’d get away with minimal damage. Yes, he risked losing his relationships and his job. But controlling anger does worse. You boil inside. Your anger will linger inside you causing more anger. And the more you control it, the worse it’ll become for you.

Anger is a habit that is born out of wanting to control the outcome. That outcome can be from your actions or the actions of others. Your anger habit is either cultivated from your need for perfection or it may have been unconsciously copied from your parents.

If you thought controlling your anger can break your anger habit, you got it all wrong. Previously you blew your steam, but now, the pressure build up every time you get angry. One day, your body will blow up with a cervical disc bulge, disc prolapse, or worse, a brain hemorrhage or a stroke. And when that happens, you alone will suffer. The others can only get you to a doctor or a surgeon, but only you’ll have to endure the consequences of your anger.

Coming back to my client, I suggested Marma Chikitsa to him and some ayurvedic laxatives to ease the pressure off his bowels.

Before sending him off, I did Marma Chikitsa and he expressed instant relief from his neck pain. He needs repetitive sessions and with that he will be well.

She was shocked when she knew the root cause of her neck pain

Chronic Neck pain

A lady came for a consultation. She was a dentist. She had come for a consultation a few years earlier too. Her problem was stiffness and pain in her neck.

I did a Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis) on her and explained to her the root cause of her symptoms and she was taken aback by the root cause of her symptom.

Her pain was on the right side of her neck and radiated to behind her ear. She was told by the doctors she visited that her pain came from her profession. In her profession as a dentist, she needs to bend to look into the row of teeth of her patients. What I saw was different.

I saw in my diagnostic chart that she was quite frustrated and that was the root cause of her neck pain.

I asked her about her frustration and she confided in me that she was not getting enough patients in her clinic and that caused all the frustration. She also said that at times her patients, looking at her, would ask her whether she was okay and that brought her to tears.

It is written in an ancient Ayurvedic treatise called “Charaka Samhita” written in Sanskrit, which is translated into English for my readers sake;

When desires are born in the mind, they cause disturbances in the body. Desires, unhappiness and fear manifest in the body as imbalances and anger as emotion.

Keeping this knowledge in view, the best treatment I thought will be Marma Chikitsa. So, I did Marma Chikitsa on her and almost instantly her pains subsided by over 80%. She got a taste of the rich Indian therapeutic and healing science of Ayurveda.

When Marma Chikitsa is repeated for just about 3-5 times, it cures the symptoms completely.

Can your skin allergy be cured?

Scratching her back in a woman isolated on white background. Cli

Skin allergy has always been a bothersome issue. Having good skin is not only a cosmetic necessity, it is important to have healthy skin that breathes and has a healthy lustre.

Curing your skin begins with gaining some knowledge on what causes your skin allergy.  Stop everything you are doing which is not right which causes your skin to go into a reaction.

The primary skin allergies are caused by consuming wrong food types and wrong food combinations.

There are 7 different personality types according to Ayurveda.

Members of a family may not conform to just one personality type. Similarly, all friends will not fit the same personality type. So, the first step is to know which  personality type you fit in so that you know what type of food and lifestyle is good for you. This can be done through a investigation procedure in Ayurveda called Nadi Pariksha.

Schedule your appointment

The second step is to find out what food and lifestyle practices you must avoid so that you can avoid all those reactants. Some of these may be foods that you really like but, if they are not good for you, it is better you avoid them.

Some skin allergies increase when you expose your skin to Sun while there are some allergies that are caused due to exposure to cold and wet weather. I had a skin allergy that triggered every time I went jogging or cycling. My skin would itch and swell. I did my own Nadi Pariksha to find the root cause. I set things right and I cured myself. I haven’t had an allergy in the last 4 years. And the best thing was that I did not need any medication to set my allergies right.

First, let us set the allergies to cold and wet weather right. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself.

  • Do you regularly have dinner after 9pm? If you are eating anytime after 8pm, then, you are more likely to be affected.
  • Do you chew food in your mouth less and sallow more often eat more than you need? If you are over-eating, you will cause more toxins to form in your body which will impact your skin.
  • Do you eat when you are not hungry? There is a difference between when you must eat and when you can eat. We usually eat when we want to but not necessarily when we need to. This can cause your skin to develop a rash.
  • Do you eat stale and cold foods? Stale and cold foods often do not digest but purify in the gut causing allergies.
  • Do you eat non-vegetarian foods such as mutton? If you are eating non-veg but not exercising enough, your food can cause allergies.
  • Do you drink cold water  aerated drinks / milk along with food? Wrong food combinations can trigger allergies.
  • Is your temperament often tending towards gloominess? Emotions often aggravate a symptom which is on the brink.

Next, let us set the allergies to heat right. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself.

  • Do you eat hot and spicy foods? If you are addicted to this kind of food but your body is not, your body can react to this kind of food.
  • Do you drink strong tea? Strong tea often burn your taste buds and cause more bile to secrete which can trigger allergies over time.
  • Do you eat sour foods such as, grapes, pineapple, brinjal, bitter gourd, elephant yam, etc? Your body may react to certain kinds of foods depending on your body type.
  • Do you eat dry and roasted dry fruits and nuts? Eating too much of these kinds of foods can trigger allergies.
  • Do you eat non-vegetarian foods such as chicken and eggs?  Eating These kinds of foods without appropriate exercise and / or at wrong timings such as nights can cause allergies to develop.
  • Do you get angry often? Anger may aggravate allergies that are on the brink.

It is important to work on your emotions alongside any other mode of treatment you take. That is the only way you can cure the symptom from the root.

Most skin conditions are curable. One has to have patience.

He was sleep deprived and then this happened to him

He was sitting in the last seat 31A of the flight that he had taken to Hyderabad. The window was half open. He was feeling sleep deprived and so his eyes were going shut. He was trying to keep himself awake and picked up the inflight magazine. He just kept flipping the pages without being able to focus properly. So, he put the magazine back in its holder and rested his chin on his palm.

Time passed and he was still sleepy. He peered outside the aircraft window and saw green fields below. It looked hazy. He looked at his waist. He hasn’t secured his seat belt. He wondered how he had not realised that the aircraft had taken off. His mind began to work waking him from sleep.

He turned towards the isle and saw a man walking towards him, looking for his seat number. What the … he wondered. Did he get into the flight mid air? He then turned towards the window wide awake. What he had seen with his half closed eyes was not fields, but the squares on the cemented parking bay. The flight hadn’t moved. Oh! He exclaimed to himself. Was I hallucinating? Oh my God! He thought to himself. Why do I feel deprived of sleep? Why is sleep simply not enough for me! What’s wrong with me?

Sleep is an important part of your life. Sleep resets your body clock and prepared your body and mind to face the next day. Without proper sleep your body and mind are on an overdrive. Your body spends more energy than needed to get less done. Your performance drops and you stop enjoying everything you do.

Sleep deprivation is not easy to deal with. It causes chronic fatigue. It leads to snoring. Snoring keeps you fatigued and your family disturbed. You become the centre of their conversation. It is humiliating. If snoring is not cured, it leads to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a warning. Snoring usually leads to a heart attack.

You can see some of our political leaders sleeping on the Dias. They’re clearly ignoring the warning signs.

The sleep-ap machine too is not a cure. Nor does it reduce the risk of a heart attack. It only manages your symptom while you continue to feel sleep deprived.

Snoring and sleep apnea can be cured with proper Ayurvedic therapy.

People who snore are usually unaware of their problem. Ask your partner or spouse. If you’re snoring, take action now to cure it.

With Nadi Pariksha, the root cause of snoring can be diagnosed and remedied. Sleep well from today.

He had acute pain in his ears

jaw-and-ear-ache

A few years ago, a professor from Mysore had come to consult me with complaint of pain in his ear and jaw. He had consulted several doctors who had advised him dental surgery. He was apprehensive.

I performed his Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis) and told him that the root cause of his ear ache and jaw pain was his anger. He was in disbelief and was smiling sarcastically at what he thought was a rubbish diagnosis. I suggested to him that he undergo Marma Chikitsa for a cure. He was not comfortable with my suggestion and his apprehension was evident.

I had no choice but to ask him whether he needed a demonstration to prove that his pain was indeed from his anger. When he consented, I did Marma Chikitsa on him. The smile on his face this time was one of relief and happiness. He said that his pain was gone.

When you get angry, the organs that secrete Agni (metabolising agents) such as gall bladder, liver and pancreas get stressed and produce symptoms such as cervical spondylitis, jaw pains, sharp ear aches, migraines and cranial nerve sensitivity to name a few.

The best way is to find help to discover the root cause of anger and remedy the cause so that the symptom of anger is effectively and efficiently dealt with.

Medication or medical intervention does not always have to be the treatment for such symptoms.

Marma Chikitsa is one of the best ancient therapies for several ailments. I have had amazing success with my clients when I have applied Marma Chikitsa on them.

When I was visiting Mysore several years later, I called on him. He was more than happy to acknowledge that he hardly had any pains. And when the pains came, he would resolve his anger emotion and he felt freedom from pain almost instantly.

His symptoms went undiagnosed and then this happened

exhausted-man

A lady called me asking for help regarding her son. Her son was constantly thinking. He was unable to sleep. His hands were unsteady. He had palpitations. And he was only 19 years of age.

The family had shown their son to several doctors. Some prescribed pills to reduce his anxiety while some others tried counseling him. Nothing had worked.

The lady called from Goa and requested me to come to visit them. It was after a couple of months after her call that I got a chance to go to Goa.

I visited the family. I diagnosed their son through Nadi Pariksha and realised what the problem was.

I asked the boy…”How many times do you masturbate everyday?” He answered that he masturbated at least twice daily.

That was the root cause of all his symptoms.

I gave him some therapies and suggested only one medicine that will regenerate his tissues and asked him to stop masturbating for 2 months. In a week’s time, his sleep got better. In 15 days, his hands became steady. And in 2 months, he was back in perfect health.

This is what happened to him.

Shukra is a tissue in the body that helps cells regenerate and produces reproductive tissue in both men and women. The strength of Shukra also is an indicator strength of Ojus or your life-force energy.

In our body we have seven tissues. These are called Rasa (nutrient component of food), Rakta (blood),Mamsa (muscle tissue), Meda (fat tissue), Asthi (bone tissue), Majja (marrow and nerve tissue), Shukra (reproductive and regenerative tissue), Artava (menstrual fluid in women) and Ojus (life-force). Each of the tissues also produce their by-products; by-product of Rasa is Kapha, by-product of Rakta is Pitta, by-product of Mamsa is ear wax, by-product of Meda is sweat, by-product of Asthi is nail and hair, by-product of Majja is whitish discharge from eyes and by-product of Shukra is Ojus.

Masturbating once in a while for pleasure is understandable. When you indulge in masturbating more often, loss of Shukra will weaken Kapha, Ojus, and increases Vata which excites your nerves and your mind. This causes excitation of all other tissues. Regeneration of tissues are disturbed and the body begins to lose vital life force energy.

Some of the symptoms you’ll experience are; weakness in your nerves, restless muscles, loss of fatty tissue in the body, Low back pains, pain in lower limbs, hair fall, dry skin, shivering, palpitations, anxiety, restless thinking, aggressive behavior, lack of confidence, fear, delusions, delirium, sleeplessness, insomnia, indigestion, extreme fatigue, and urine retention, to name a few.

A person who is unemployed mentally will indulge in acts such as masturbation.

The best way to live is to make judicious use of your body and mind. Your body is a tool given to use so that you can accomplish your life’s purpose. Keep your mind occupied with healthy thoughts, healthy habits and healthy attitude so that your efforts are focussed and produce appropriate results that keep your body healthy and the mind pleasant.

VitaminD and Calcium supplements have no effect on your body

old-people

Supplements containing calcium, vitamin D or both may not protect older adults against hip fracture and other bone breaks, a study claims.

Practice guidelines recommend calcium and vitamin D supplements for older people to prevent fractures in those with osteoporosis, according to the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Previous studies have come to mixed conclusions about an association between supplements and fracture risk, researchers said.

The study conducted by researchers at the Tianjin Hospital in China included 51,145 adults over the age of 50 who lived in their communities and not institutions, such as nursing homes and residential care facilities.

The adults participated in 33 randomised clinical trials comparing supplement use (calcium, vitamin D or both) with placebo or no treatment and new fractures.

The study found that supplements were not associated with less risk for new fractures, regardless of the dose, the sex of the patient, their fracture history, calcium intake in their diet or baseline vitamin D blood concentrations.

“These findings do not support the routine use of supplements containing calcium, vitamin D, or both by older community-dwelling adults for prevention of fracture,” the researchers said.

Arteriovenous Malformation

seizures and headaches

A woman of 42 years came for a consultation. She was a mother of 2 children.

On checking her pulse, there were indications of increased instability and lightening fast impulses. She revealed that she had AVM or Arteriovenous Malformation.

In the body, arteries carry oxygenated blood and veins carry de-oxygenated blood. An AVM is a malformation in which certain improperly formed veins disrupt this process. In certain people, the AVM ruptures causing internal bleeding. When there is no rupture, people may experience headache or seizures.

This lady had seizures every single day. The medications she took reduced the intensity of her seizures but seizures continued to occur on the afternoons she rested and seizures occurred with reduced intensity at night.

I suggested she take Marma Chikitsa. After doing two sessions of Marma Chikitsa she did not have seizures. Now she is regularly undertaking Marma Chikitsa therapy and with this intervention, we look forward to a happier and healthier person.

We have seen Marma Chikitsa as one such remedy which provides immediate results in several health conditions such as Cervical Spondylitis, Chronic neck pain, Chronic body pain, neck sprains, neck spasms, migraines, insomnia, sleeplessness, disturbed sleep, epilepsy, radiating arm pain, radiating shoulder pain, low back pains, fatiguing pains in the legs, urinary incontinence, etc.,

Marma Chikitsa can bring this effect and shock you

A man of 67 years came to me for a consultation. He was a diabetic. His muscles were all stiff. And he couldn’t feel his feet. He felt as if his feet were replaced with wood.

I did his Nadi Pariksha and found that his mind was amazingly stable but his body had been neglected over the years with tremendous intellectual work and inadequate sleep. He needed Marma Chikitsa to harmonise the flow of Prana that had accumulated in several parts of the body and that created the stiffness.

I gave him Marma Chikitsa therapy. After the therapy he felt, for the first time, that his muscles relaxed and he felt flexible. While he was describing, he was shifting his weight from one foot to another. I did pay attention to this but chose to ignore it. After about 2 minutes, he described to me that for the first time he could feel his feet. Marma Chikitsa left him overjoyed.

This was such a heart warming experience for all of us.

You can simply overcome emotional pain

A lady came to me a few days ago. Her complaint was that she was putting all the effort she wanted to at home and at work and that she had no luck.

I perform d her Nadi Pariksha and what I could see through the diagnosis was that she was very unhappy. Every time a problem she was going through was announced, she nodded in acceptance with a smile.

For her, her pain had become a pleasurable experience. Many of my clients, get so used to pain that they are unable to live life without pain. If they don’t have it, they’ll create one. Then they complain about their pains.

If you want your life to painless and beautiful, the first step is to stop creating pain. Think of a Happy situation instead and actually create one. Then form a thread or sequence of happy thoughts and happy actions. Only then life itself will turn around for you.

Here’s a simple practice to turn your life around now.

Sit in a comfortable position. You can sit on the ground or on a chair. You can also be resting on a couch with your legs stretched.

I’m sharing a breathing practice to you, and a different one.

Before you breathe in, see bars of happiness, love, joy, laughter and fun as words around you.

Breathe in these words and breathe out normally. Put your effort in breathing in happiness, love, joy, laughter and fun.

Do this practice for a few minutes and see how it changes you instantly.

I shared this practice with a lady who had sharp shooting pains in her left knee. After just two minutes of this practice, her pains were gone. I saw her the next day too, and she said that her pains here just vanished.

Don’t make pain a pleasurable experience. Replace pain with happiness, love, joy, laughter and fun.
