Chinese Electro-Acupuncture as a treatment of diseases is not so popular in Goa and this being the case, many people here do not know what it is all about, while there are some with glaring misconceptions about it. So as a qualified doctor (D.Ac., M.I.A.Ac.S., M.D. (Acu), F.I.A.Ac.S., P.G.Ac.) of this type of treatment I would like to throw light on this subject.
Acupuncture is the art of treating diseases without the use of medicines. This science has caught the attention, of the world considering the fact that its use has provided relief to millions of people from chronic incurable ailments.
Now is the time to carry the message of this great science to the doorsteps of the common man, However, it is necessary to shed inhibitions, reservations and misunderstandings about this Humanitarian Science of relief from diseases.
The human body is a mysterious machine created by the Almighty God. However, God himself has provided a special inbuilt system to this machine to set it right, whenever there is any disturbance in its working. Different doctors try to treat the patient with different medicines.
Yet, the most ideal method is that, for which treatment is done (without external medicines) just by stimulating the ‘inbuilt system’, so that it brings about harmony in the functioning of the different organs of the body and cures the patient. This is precisely what Chinese Acupuncture Science aims at.
* Acupuncture treatment strengthens the immune system of the body. Complications like reactions, allergies and side-effects are totally absent, as there is no use of medicine.
* While treating one disease, several other ailments are automatically cured because every point has got many functions.
* There is no pain while pricking needles because acupuncture increases pain-bearing capacity; the needles are very thin (32 gauge) and no medicine is inserted (even small children can take treatment with ease).
* Acupuncture needle pricks do not leave prick marks on the body.
* Acupuncture needles are thoroughly sterilised before use. Hence they are totally safe from AIDS and other infections.
* Unlike other forms of medical treatments, acupuncture does not lead to the formation of any bad habit or addiction.
* Acupuncture provides almost a permanent cure for chronic disorders at comparatively low cost. This is because medication gives only temporary relief and patients have to take medicines life-long. Besides, eventually, medicines fail to act on the diseases.
* It is the safest treatment.
Acupuncture is very effective in ailments like polio (initial stages), paralysis, ear problems (ringing sound, discharge, loss of balance), sinusitis, knee-pain, arthritis, cold, allergies, mental retardation, mental sicknesses, congenital paralysis in children, diabetes, asthma and addictions to liquor and smoking.
Nowadays many people complain of neck and back problems, i.e. spondylosis, slip-disc, sciatica (cramping pain in legs), headache, shoulder pain, loss of sleep, impotency, etc. For treating such cases, I use the combination of my own discovered special points for getting dramatic results. In such a way I have gained mastery over treating chronic disorders, by the blessing of God.
I propose to hold a series of camps both in Goa and the neighbouring states for diagnosis and creating an awareness among the suffering people about the tremendous advantages of acupuncture.
I am confident that I shall get the full cooperation of the general public and doctors in my mission.
So, if any of your esteemed readers still has any questions about acupuncture he or she could attend one of my camps or phone me on 250625 or contact me at the below address.
