His stomach was burning and his joints were hurting

When you look perfectly okay, but you have unexplained physical problems and you don’t know what is the root cause of it, Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis) is the only way to find out the real problem.

A man, 35 years of age came for a Nadi Pariksha consultation. After performing his Nadi Pariksha, I found that he had stiffness in his neck, his stomach was burning. His joints were stiff and he was lacking quality sleep and that would create stiffness in his neck and aggravate as a nasty migraine. He was judgmental and he would get intensely angry at the slightest provocation. His intense anger was the root cause of all his symptoms.

I enquired with him whether he was getting sudden and intense anger and whether he faced these physical symptoms! He agreed that he was indeed getting angry for frivolous reasons and then his stiff neck condition worsened leaving him with a bad migraine, his burning sensation in the stomach aggravated and his lack of sleep seemed incurable.

Anger can create widespread consequences. When you get angry, tamas, the quality of energy that induces sleep gets disturbed. Further, your alkaline mucus lining in your stomach and your intestines begin to reduce and will eventually result in ulcers. The muscles that bind your joints can lose their elasticity and result in stiff joints. It can further get complicated and result in permanent injuries in your ankles, knees and your shoulders.

This is not the first time I have seen anger manifest into a bothersome symptom. I have seen how anger has manifested into schizophrenia and the person has died of a brain haemorrhage in sleep, and the worst I have witnessed, is how anger has manifested into cancer of the bile duct.

He had taken some so-called remedial measures that actually were slowly destroying him. He had begun compromising and controlling his anger. He was giving into situations so that there would be no confrontation.

But, this step actually destroyed his own peace. He was getting angry but controlling it and diverting himself. The result was manifesting physically.

Anger is not bad. The misuse of anger is bad. Controlling your anger is the worst practice you can create for yourself. It will surely destroy you. Controlling anger is like slow poison.

I explained to him why his body was creating this condition. He could see clearly how he was unknowingly harming himself. So, I suggested that he undertake a few therapies that will help him release all his bent up reasons that cause his anger. I also suggested that he bring his wife so that she can learn  Marma Chikitsa and help him sleep peacefully.

I ended the consultation with giving him Marma Chikitsa treatment. His body and mind relaxed. He felt calm. He had a restful sleep that night.

Almost all physical conditions have their root cause in how you react to your environment. Addressing the root cause and alongside reversing the symptoms is the best way to bring your body and mind to harmony permanently.

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.

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.
