Dr. M B Prabhu of the Sai Acupuncture Clinic will organise a 10 day camp at Tourist Home, Patto, here from July 15. Dr. Prabhu will see patients from 10.30 am to 1 pm and from 4.30 pm to 6 pm.
Addressing a Press conference here today, Dr. Prabhu pointed out that Acupuncture is an age old science which was developed in India even during the times of Mahabharata but was nurtured and flourished inChina. He started that chronic ailments like asthma, paralysis, arthritis, speslylosis and other back related problems and even gout can be treated by acupuncture.
Dr. Prabhu listed out many of his success stories including the treatment of Agnello D’Souza from Siolim from gout.
Replying to a question, he said that the treatment depends upon each individual and added that the fees are Rs. 50 per sitting but how many sittings will be required are determined by the response of the patient. Normally, he said that he has two sittings a day for 10 days which are followed by one month’s gap after which another course is carried out if needed.
Dr. Prabhu’s camps at Margao and Belgaum have met with very good response and he is now in the process of setting up a clinic at Margao.
