A boy 15 yrs old, R/o Hyderabad, under treatment intermittently for last 3 years, gradually improving.

Male 20 yrs R/O Aurangabad had waddling gait, wasting of muscles, gradual deterioration, EMG & raised CPK confirmed diagnosis of late onset limb girdle type of myopathy. The patient last 5 years. He can now walk three times more distance than that before treatment.

This case was referred to us by a neurophysician who diagnosed it as MND, another physician thought it as Primary Muscle Disease whereas Orthopaedic surgeon had diagnosed it as Cervical cord compression. Acupuncture diagnosis is mainly dependent on pulse, tongue, nail and skin and five element evaluation of the individual. After perfect diagnosis treatment is supposed to work in 15-20 days. This patient was literally lifted to our hospital, 15 days of treatment helped him to walk with support of 2 persons. Further treatment saw him moving alone with little support. At discharge he would walk alone and come on his own from his place to our hospital. Such phenomenal changes cannot be thought of in Modern Medicine. This is progressive incurable disorder according to Modern Medicine still the disease process may be stopped or retarded in majority of such cases. Some cases do improve !
Bulbar Palsy Due to MND - Female 22 yrs R/O Ahmednagar came with oedema on face, difficulty in deglutition, gradual loss of voice and regurgitation of food & water.

He was always accompanied by 2 persons carrying him to our hospital. The above mentioned case responded well in 30 days of treatment .He could walk with a stick. In the next course he could walk without stick with a little support . Cases of Friedrich ataxia are also frequently seen at our clinic. It is a progressive degenerative disorder of the cerebellum considered to be genetic .Such cases need to be managed properly and the treatment priority has to be given to at least stop the progress of the disease and then look for some reversible changes. Two siblings staying close to our clinic are suffering from this disorder. They come intermittently for treatment. We have succeded in preventing further progress of the disease. Brother and sister had imbalance gait , their mother had the same symptoms and therefore diagnosed Friedrich ataxia. Both of them have undergone Acupuncture treatment . Both of them responded well. Brother was able to continue his duties as a sales manager in a car showroom and the sister could do the household work and walk alone from her home which was 2-3 km away from the hospital. Since this form of disorder is a progressive one patients have to maintain further follow-ups and restart the treatment whenever necessary .
Parkinsonism- 70 yrs retired teacher had slurred speech with tremors in right hand . Use of scalp Acupuncture and treating the five elements is the basis of treatment in parkinsonism. This patient was completely well after 30-40 days of treatment. A Businessman had family history of parkinsonism . The list and the quantity of drugs were adding on and the disease was getting progressed. Acupuncture was used to control the disease.

Inspite of the drugs he used to have episodes of attacks 2-3 times a month .He suffered with several tongue bites Acupuncture diagnosis in epilepsy is mainly dependent on five element study of the case. Perfect diagnosis gives quick results. The number of attacks are reduced during the first course of acupuncture . Further treatments are then meant to reduce the doses of antileptics, this has to be done gradually and cautiously. The above mentioned case was successfully treated, he now runs a courier agency. 32 yrs female R/O Pune was suffering from Epileptic seizures 2-3 times a week . She was not responding even to heavy medication, According to Acupuncture we diagnosed it as Water-Fire imbalance. She was cured in about 6 months.
Trigeminal Neuralgia- A famous artist R/O Hyderabad, had severe pain in tooth being referred over half side of the face. His pain was aggravated on intake of solid food and cold drinks. He could not concentrate on his profession and stopped paintings. Trigeminal neuralgia is the affection of 5th cranial nerve. Carbamazepines are the commonly prescribed drugs in modern medicine. As the pain worsens the dosage of the drugs needs to be increased. Surgery being the other alternative where the affected nerve has to be destroyed with alcohol, Laser etc After 15 days of Acupuncture treatment he could eat rice. He was emotional and could not stop crying. He replied gladly, Sir I could eat rice after 9 mths. Drugs were gradually withdrawn. He made portrait of Prof Sir Dr Lohiya. His paintings are exhibited at many Indian airports . 45 yrs female R/O Aurangabad did not respond to drugs so she came for acupuncture.

The girl had developed suicidal tendency due to the intolerable pain. 7-8 pills of ergotamine tablets at a time would not reduce her pain. Drugs could be successfully stopped after 3 sessions of Acupuncture treatment- 15 days each. Complete control of pain was achieved with Acupuncture .After a attack free period of 2-3 months treatment was stopped. A company worker used to get severe headache and uncontrolled anger during the attack. He decided not to marry if the symptoms are not subsided. . Reduction in the number of attacks due to Acupuncture helped improve his confidence. He had a pain free period of 6 months which confirmed complete cure. 4 yrs later he visited our hospital with his wife and daughter not for migraine but to treat the backache of his wife! This is quite common disorder. According to Prof Dr. Lohiya's experience, excess "Fire" in the body is the root cause.
