Immune System and your emotions –
the interconnection

Dr. H. Bhojraj B.E (Hons), MD (Acu)
Tel : 91-80-2332 6552

One cannot imagine life without emotions.  Primary emotions like joy, happiness, worry; sadness, fear and anger are bound to be there in our life.  These primary emotions are not to be suppressed at all.  Certainly they are meant for expression to overcome that particular situation without affecting your physical system.  It has been observed that chronic aches and pains of all kinds may reflect chronic tension in muscles that are being clamped in order to suppress the display of the primary emotions especially the negative emotions like worry, sadness, fear and anger.
One may not consciously feel angry, yet one can notice the involuntary formation of fists.  One may not be aware of being afraid but the sensation in the stomach indicates the fear.  A depressed person loses the muscle tone, body slumps and head will bend downwards.  A sad news can constrict the throat in an attempt to avoid tears in the eyes.  A measured polite voice may be symptomatic of the control of anger, with the natural tendency to shout and intimidate.   Shortness of breath may result from clamping of the abdominal muscles to shut off the sensation of anxiety arising from the stomach.
The brain and the other sensors are very closely connected through feed back and feed forward loops that they effectively comprise a single system.So do the brain and endocrine system through which it communicates.  Similarly the brain and the immune system.  The brain communicates with all the systems via direct neural connections, through hormones and through chemical messengers called peptides.  

So there is a direct connection between one’s emotions and the immune system.  Negative emotions over a period of time weaken the immune system.  Positive emotions over the same period of time strengthen the immune system.  

Watch your emotions carefully.  Express your emotions as far as possible.  Never suppress your emotions.  You can stay healthy.

Open Your Mind

Ther is a Chinese saying :
“You can’t pour fresh hot tea into a cup of stale cold tea.”
A professor went to a Zen Master to know all about Zenism. The Master started pourning tea into the cup during the tea ceremony and after a while it started overflowing the cup. The professor shouted “Master, no more will go into the cup”. The Master replied, “yes, like this cup, your mind is overflowing with your own ideas. You must empty your mind a little for the new ideas to come in”.
Just open your mind. Well, unlock your mind – rather throw away the lock ! Keep the mind open to receive fresh and new ideas.
Experiment our new techniques and experience the results.

 These symptoms indicate the heat energy is in excess.  This type of insomnia can be treated by reducing the heat in the heart meridian itself once in a fortnight.  It shows the problem is originated in the heart itself.

 In this case, the spleen weakness has affected the heart since heat energy has to produce humidity.  Since the problem lies in spleen, treatment to heart meridian is ineffective.  So, Yin humidity increase is the best formula for insomnia and palpitations.

 Here, the kidney deficiency is the root cause of the problem.  Since coldness energy is less, the heat energy is not properly controlled.

 By increasing the Yin coldness, we can give very good results for insomnia.

The pulse analysis system developed by Pulse Academy in Russia can determine the sate of energy in 12 meridians and displays Yin and Yang levels for monitoring the status of health.
A special software has been developed by Dr. Serguie Fedotov, Secretary of the Pulse Academy for diagnosing the health of the patient, planning the treatment and also forecasting the results of the treatment.  It uses Pulse Analysis Sensor V3-208 for registering pulses in various positions on the wrist.
Pulse Analysis Academy, Vladivostok, Russia is ready to lease their sensor for 500 pulses to Acupressure Club.  The cost of the licence fee with computer is expected around Rs.1.5 lakhs.  The advance Acupuncture Students who have completed the course or undergoing training can contact the Course Director for details to send their patients for pulse evaluation
This will give the authentic record for our Research in Acupuncture before and after treatment.
The system will be made operational within two or three months.


Drugless Therapies for Old Age Problems and Preventive Health Care.

 “Time and Tide wait for No Man”. Old age is bound to come along with age-old problems, which our parents and grandparents have faced in their life.  Entering the senior citizen category at the age of 60 or 65 years is bound to be a nightmare for many people.  If they are in employment and retiring at the age of 60, it brings some sudden changes and harsh adjustments for which people are not fully prepared and very few people plan it well.  Overnight, one may find oneself without work, without contact with colleagues and without any specific goal to look forward to.  Some of them have a well-planned retired life due to their foresight and have less physical problems compared to those who have not planned properly.

 Old age medical problems are more psychosomatic in nature and we must understand the problem before providing any universal solution for the same.

 Along with conventional medicines, drugless therapies open up avenues to keep healthy till the end, of course with reduced medication.  Prevention is better than Cure.  Preventive measures should start at a young age.  Most of the youngsters don’t appreciate our preventive health care with Yogasanas and Pranayama designed by our great saints, and according to me it is India, which has let down Yoga and not Yoga which has let down India.  Even in the old age, the problems can be cured by practicing Yoga and following the Yogic way of life.

 Anywhere in the world, preventive health care starts with mind training.  The equilibrium of body, mind and soul is a must to stay healthy.  By staying healthy, one can continuously attempt to find out the purpose of life and also contribute their best to their organization and in turn to the country.

Drugless Therapies for Old Age Problems:

 First of all we must try to understand what are the possible old age problems and what alternative therapies are available so as to reduce the medication, at the very least.

Multiple Pathology:

 As age advances, cataract limiting the vision, heart disease, cerebral stroke, urinary infection, osteo-arthritis of the knees/hips are very common among senior citizens.  Though it needs proper allopathy treatment, oil pulling therapy will certainly improve their health parameters.

Mind Related – Tendency to Confusion:

 As we are aging due to loss of nerve cells, tendency to forget and sudden onset of confusion can occur.  Such reactions are short lived and can be corrected as soon as we restore the physical organ.  Acupressure or Acupuncture treatment will help a lot.

Lesser Sensitivity to Pain:

 As the aging progresses, the sensory nerves lose their efficiency and sensation of pain diminishes.  Especially diabetic persons may not feel the pain when they hurt their feet, which is more dangerous.  It is advisable to keep the sugar level under control.  Pranayama and acupressure can help chronic diabetics to keep it under control.

Diminished Temperature Regulation:

 When the body is infected, it is the defense reaction of the body to raise the body temperature to kill the bacteria.  The temperature regulation may not be an efficient as in young people.  Pulse rate and respiration is often better indicators (guide to access) of the illness.  Regular pranayama exercise increases the efficiency of the immune system and the infection can be controlled with very less antibiotics.

Reaction to Drugs:

 Some people at the old age are more sensitive to drugs and the harmful side effects of drugs are also very common.  Drugs taken for controlling B.P., pain killers etc. are slowly metabolized in the liver and because of diminished renal function, it takes longer to excrete them.  One drug may react with another drug taken for different symptoms.  Oil pulling therapy and pranayama along with acupressure can reduce the medicines to bare minimum.


 Persistent fatigue is a common symptom in older patients.  One has to check for heart disease, coronary artery disease or valve prolapsed or low B.P.  It shows the heart is not able to cope up with the demand for physical activities.  Oil pulling therapy, pranayama and acupressure will improve the situation within few weeks.

Sleeplessness or Sleep Disturbance:

 In old age, sleeplessness due to anxiety, aches and pains is very common.  Leg cramps especially for ladies and also the need to urinate during the night will disturb the sleep.

 The acupressure point *H-7 can be kept pressed for 10 seconds for 3 to 4 times before going to bed.  Medulla massage* can be done for 5 minutes for getting good quality of sleep.  Giving light massage for the little finger through which heart meridian passes can improve the sleep.

Loss of Appetite (Anorexia):

 Some people in the old age may lose their appetite and may not have any interest to eat.  It is mainly due to stomach and spleen.  Activating the spleen** and stomach** reflex points daily can solve the problem.

Breathlessness (Dyspnoea):

 This problem can be due to Lung weakness or Heart problem or deficiency in the blood etc.  Oil pulling therapy done regularly along with pranayama will improve the situation.

Vertigo (Giddiness):

 Giddiness or dizziness is one of the common symptoms among elderly people.  Very unpleasant feeling and sometimes frightening.

 The probable causes can be minor like wax in the ear or any other causes like severe anemia, hypertension or intestinal bleeding etc.

 A single point solution in acupressure will give immediate relief i.e. TW17**.  Pressure and release at this point for 2 minutes, which will relieve the giddiness.

Fainting Fits:

 Old people may faint suddenly or lose their consciousness due to sudden fall in B.P. and diminished oxygen availability to the brain.  An acupressure point GV-26 located on the lips just below the nose can revive them immediately.


 It is very common in old age and it can lead to bleeding piles.  It can be due to diet or under activity.  An acupressure point CV-25 located just on the center of the chin can be activated early morning before going for evacuation.  Plenty of luke warm water and half boiled vegetables will help to ease constipation.

Incontinence of Urine or Retention of Urine:

 As we grow old, the bladder muscles will be weakened especially sphincter muscle, which is voluntary.  Sometimes due to prostrate swelling the urinary tube may be pressed so that urine is retained for longer time.  Again the acupressure point B-60 just behind the ankle on the lateral side will give very good results.

Immune System:

 Apart from all these problems, infection at the old age is a real problem and the treatment with antibiotics will worsen the situation.  A workout called immune system workout given in my “Acupressure & Fitness” book can be practiced daily to improve the immune system by activating the spleen, kidney, intestine, liver and lymphatic reflex points daily for 5 minutes.

Nutrition Requirement:

 Nutrition required for body repair and rejuvenation may not be available in the body due to improper food intake.   Diet plays an important role in solving old age problems.  Chewing the food for a long period of time will help in digestion and absorption of the food.


 Broken bones due to slippage in the bathroom is one of the common problems.  Bathrooms with handrails and cleanliness can give required support to avoid accidental slippage.  Prevention is better than cure.

Mind is Important:

 Mental tension for retired people due to their loss of authority can cause health problems.  Relatives and friends should be supportive and understand the problems associated with retirement.  The secure feeling within family plays an important role in senior citizens’ health management.

Preventive Health Care:

 To maintain optimal health, exercise plays an important role.  Regular walking exercise improves the circulation of the blood, reduces swelling in the body and offers prevention of any major problem in future.

 Oil Pulling Therapy is the best for aged people since it does not demand too much effort.  One can very easily throw out all the toxins from our body.  One can refer to the process in my book “Acupressure and Fitness”.  Just by pressing and releasing the entire palm with our fingers daily for 5 minutes can activate all our organs and offers preventive health care.

 To prevent further progression and complications of disease, one should give attention to adequate nutritional intake, avoiding stimulating drinks like alcohol, coffee, tea etc. and regularly practice walking as an aerobic exercise for 30 minutes.  Building financial security for old age and having a good social network in case of any emergency will give inner peace of mind, which is the primary requirement to stay healthy.

  Wish you all a healthy and happy retired life.

Case Histories

No Migraine for 12 years with Acupressure activation

    Says Dr. Madhu Prasad, ISRO Scientist, Phone No.25083109

I had been suffering from Migraine since mid 1980s.  The attacks were 3-6 times a year and I was prescribed Crocin – Valium 2mg to be taken immediately on the start of the symptom.  In early 90s that I was tested for allergy to paracetomol (Crocin) and hence looked for an alternate cure for migraine headache.  Around the same time Dr. H. Bhojraj had been giving lectures and promoting Acupressure in our office.  I contacted him one day when I had migraine and he pressed some acupressure points and told me to press the eight ‘health points’ every day.

Though on that day the headache did not go away completely, I got a lot of relief and started practicing eight-health point acupressure.  Till date I am very regular with that and I have found that as long as I do that I keep very good general health and in particular I don’t get migraine.  However if due to any reason (and there are plenty of them) I am not able to do acupressure regularly for a month, I start getting migraine headache of course with very less intensity now a days.  This is a reminder for me to get started with the acupressure routine.

Course Director’s comments

Migraine can be cured with Acupuncture.

Great relief from Cervical Spondylitis from Acupuncture
    Says Janakiraman, Chennai, Phone No. 23615977

I was suffering from cervical spondylitis for past 6-7 years.  I used to have severe neck pain which gets radiated to my head.  I tried several treatments but were of no use. Because of this, I used to have numbness in my arms, hand, and weakness in my legs, severe headache, and continuous uneasiness in my neck which brought sleeplessness. Being an IT professional, I have to spend long hours before the computer and  the neck pain which I had,  affected my concentration at work.  Dr. Jayalakshmi gave me the acupuncture / acupressure treatment and I am now completely relieved of the problems and can concentrate onmy work and work more efficiently.  Certainly the treatments have a high level of success. Dr. Jayalakshmi even helped me to get out of the psychological fears I had during this treatment. She also taught me Pranayama to get rid of my problem. Today I am free from my neck pain and I am able to lead a healthy life my thanks and gratitude to her for such an effective treatment.

I want to share my experience in using acupuncture treatment in the emotional level, with which I have successfully treated a few cases.
People who had been taking Anti depressant medicines are able to stop the medicines once for all and they are able to come out completely from their mental (emotional) blocks.
When we treat a case in the emotional level, it is necessary to tell the patient what is going to be done, which points are to be pricked and for what.
Lu 8 is to be decreased when the sadness or grief  is to be decreased. Normally the patient is informed that his grief is going to leave him forever.
No more sadness for him. All his sadness is out of his mind. The patient closes his eyes and sincerely thinks that his sadness is going away from him and there is no more grief. He contemplates in this thought for a minute. He really feels that something is coming out of his body after which he feels very light in his heart.
The 2nd point (H7) is increased, thereby increasing the joy of the patient. The patient feels that his joy is increasing.
The 3rd point, fear point (K10) is decreased. Again the patient feels that something is coming out of his body and he feels very light again. When we say that all these things are reported to the brain by decreasing P 7, he really feels that he is out of Fear and Grief.
The treatment works like Hypnotism. Two case histories of persons, who were treated like this in the mental level are given here.

Meticulus cure from smoking and drinking addiction
    Says Rajesh,Manager  in  Shipping Company,  Bangalore.

In June 2005, it was a meticulous cure and mental relief for a person who has been addict to smoking & drinking and had a great opportunity to come out of these problems through Acupuncture. It was a great experience for me to travel a cure through this. My family is in great happiness since I am back to normal life. My mother and my wife took all the pain in introducing me this “Acupressure method” of treatment since I have always been believing only the allopathic method and was running after the best doctors which had constantly led me to unsuccessful efforts and a kind of frustation.
I was identified of having a stomach problem and I was suffering with high bloatedness and bulge of my stomach purely with gas and my mind got blocked  in the year 2003. Through an introduction to Acupuncture by Dr. Jayalakshmi at Chennai, it was all taken away and I am back to normal and only with slight acidity which I am sure of getting cured soon. 
I was into the Homeopathic treatment which used to put me to a normal level of day to day work and with the help of Dr. Jayalakshmi I am seeing improvements and hope things will be soon back to very normal.

Acupressure, the drugless method is very useful for many ailments    
Says Seshamma, A housewife of  Bangalore.

Acupressure is one of the fast spreading self treatment techniques with no side effects. This is a system with no side effects which is most useful. Many of us come from the families of doctors, we did not know till recently that a system like this exists. Whithout knowing about this Acupuncture/Acupressure system completly, it is not fair to comment and say it is a non-scientifc method. Generally we compare a doctor to Lord Narayana when the doctor treats patients with kindness, patience, humility, devotion without giving much importance for money. The deseases will automatically get cured only when the patients have belief and faith in the system as well as in the doctor.

Dr. Sujata Palyam, a member of our Laughing Club, has taught all the members of our Club, different pressure points to each of the members without expecting anything and with a great mind of ‘service’ which has enabled the members of the Club not to depend upon others unnecessarily. Even now she gives a lot of advice to our members whoever approaches her without getting irritated and with great patience.
I had been suffering from burning pains in the thigh for more than a year. I have followed the pressure points shown to me by Dr. Sujata and all the pains have gone and I feel very confortable. I am grateful to her for ever. Even my daughter, who is an insulin dependent patient (diabetics), is also following the pressure points shown by Dr. Sujata and she is recovering well.
[Translation of a letter written in Telugu by Mrs. Seshamma]

Cervicle Spondolysis cured for my collegue
     Says Jacob Mathew,of Bangalore, Tel : 25083336.

My collegue, Mr. Jayaram working in ISAC had terrible neck pain for quite some time and had to take allopathic treatment for a few months. He was given pain killers initially and even given short traction for many days. Inspite of all these treatments his pain did not subside. He was advised to wear a collor around his neck to avoid the nerve pinching at the neck region. After wearing the collor, the pain used to radiate into his arms.
He was advised by one of the collegues to try Dr. Bhojraj’s acupuncture treatment. Since he was busy on that day, he was asked to meet Mr. Bhoopalan. He gave acupuncture treatment as given in the book for back pain and neck pain. Additional points like LI-4, SI-3, St-36, K-1, K-3 were activated with acupressure. He was also taught a few points for daily activation. The result was unbelievable. Within a day or two his pain reduced and he was able to lift the arm without pain. He was advised to remove the collor after a few days. He is nearly cured from all his previous symptoms.
Acupuncture and Acupressure work like miracle not only for neck pain but also for other aches.

Unbelievable Cures & Very Useful Book

Says Mrs. Shreen. E-mail address mohanpaul@touchtelindia.net

I have undergone treatment for migraine and cervical spondylytis about 3 years ago from Dr. Bhojraj.  The results are great and long lasting.  At that time, I had bought your book ‘Acupressure & Fitness’.  Over the years, I have used it to treat something as minor as a swelling from an ant bite to curing a back ache.  Recently my son had a very bad allergic cough (dry cough).  As a result, he coughed continuously for 24 hrs. I tried homeopathy, a cough syrup to no avail.  Finally I remembered the book and activated the pressure points for cough.  Naturally, those points were tender, but the most tender was the point connected to allergy.  To my amazement, my son stopped coughing in exactly 5 minutes and slept soundly for the next 10 hrs.  I have used the book to treat a number of minor ailments & amazed at the results.  Recently, my cousin who works in the software industry has started treatment for severe neck and arm pain, which he had been suffering for the past 2 years.  After just the first session, he was feeling better and had also brought a friend along for treatment. (Note : Lu-7 is the acu point connected with lung allergy).

Calcaceous Spur cured with Acupuncture

Says Ms. M. Karpagam,  ISRO Satellite Centre (Ph. 25083202) Bangalore,Karnataka,INDIA

In July 2004, I developed severe pain in my right leg/foot.  I used to find it difficult to stand / walk and do the kitchen activities at home and to cope up with my office work.  Even while walking, due to pain, without my knowledge I started walking funnily.  When I went to my office doctor, he referred me to an Orthopedics Specialist (Allopathic) who diagnosed the cause for the problem as the spur in the right foot.  So an x-ray was taken and followed by heavy dosage of medicines including antibiotics and painkillers. I used to consume medicines costing approximately Rs.500/- every month for about six to seven months regularly.  But my pain has not stopped but gave some temporary relief.  On seeing my condition the Specialist suggested that he would go for injection at that point and if no improvement is there, then no other option than going for a minor operation. I was so scarred and mentally not prepared for an injection/operation at right foot. I was afraid that I may have to live my life with the intolerable pain in right leg.
During February 2005, I approached Dr. Bhojraj and told him my problem.  He heard my problem and started the Acupuncture treatment immediately. I could not belief myself. To my surprise, within 2 sittings in a span of 2/3 days, I am fully relieved of my pain in my right foot. I could walk normally.  He activated certain acupressure points related to this and asked me to continue for some more days or whenever pain occurs.

I declare that Dr.Bhojraj and his Acupuncture/Acupressure Therapy is simply marvelous and does miracles to sufferers.  From February 2005 I had stopped all medicines and keeping normal health. Physically and mentally I am so much relieved.  I don’t find words to appreciate the effectiveness of the alternate therapy practiced by Dr. Bhojraj.

Chest Pain cured with ‘Pranayama’ practice

Says Ms. M. Karpagam,  ISRO Satellite Centre (Ph. 25083202) Bangalore,Karnataka,INDIA

I used to get chest pain quite often since 2003 .  The pain used to be severe and it will last for 3-5 minutes.  In our office itself twice gone for ECG test but the result was normal.  Our Doctor suggested that it might be due to muscular pain. Once the dosage of medicine/painkiller was completed, pain used to reappear. After that, our Doctor referred me to Manipal Hospital during June 2004.  There also the result was same.  Even Manipal Doctor had suggested that it might be because of muscular pain.  Since the pain was persisting, once again I have to take up ECG and TMT test at Manipal Hospital during mid February 2005.  Meanwhile, I started attending the ‘Pranayama’ classes being conducted at our Office for ladies by Dr.H.Bhojraj since January 2005.  After a month i.e. by March, to my surprise, I found that my chest pain has gradually disappeared. Afterwards I didn’t get that terrible pain again.  For the last 5-6 months I have not taken any medicines also. This is only because of ‘Pranayama’.  I am very much grateful to Dr. Bhojraj for teaching me ‘Pranayama’.  Thank you once again Sir.

My mother 72 year old, recovered very well from all the symptoms with Acupuncture treatment

Says Mrs. Uma Venkatachalam, Chennai, Ph.23710249,Tamil Nadu,INDIA.

My mother aged about 72 years was suffering from diabetic and pulmonary problems. She was unable to sleep in the night due to breathing obstruction while lying down and most of the time, she used to be in standing position at night.  Also, she used to get giddiness.  I have taken her to all the specialists and we had no solution for her problem.  Added to this, my mother was not believing in alternate system of medicine.  She used to take about 12 to 15 tablets in a day.
I was searching in the Internet for some solution and stumbled upon Dr.Bhojraj’s web site on Acupressure Cure.  He directed me to contact Dr.Jayalakshmi in Chennai for treatment as well as training.  At the end of the training, I took my mother to Dr.Jayalakshmi and she started the treatment with Lung wind increase.  To our surprise, she could lie down and sleep on that night.  We continued our treatment for two months and her medication has come down drastically from 12-15 per  day to 2-3 per day.  Her blood sugar has come down and her taste buds also shown some improvement.   Her giddiness also improved considerable thought it has not gone yet.

I have seen the suffering of my mother due to the side effects of allopathy drugs and I have learnt this course mainly to spread these simple healing methods to the common man so that their drugs input can be reduced.

I wish to thank Dr. Bhojraj and Dr. J. Jayalakshmi for their guidance and training.


Acupuncture helped conceive naturally

Dr. Sujata Palyam says that one of her patients, Dr.  Maya (an anesthesia specialist, Tel : 252 80041), contacted her with problems of infertility. The patient had even tried the in-vitro fertilisation but failed to conceive. After taking acupuncture treatment, she conceived the natural way and delived a baby boy. The child is now about two years old. Both the child and the mother are hale and healthy. Dr. Maya has thanked Dr. Sujata Palyam for the treatment and recommended one of her collegues, Dr. Arati, with similar problem, to Dr. Sujata Palyam . Dr. Arati has conceived after acupuncture treatment and is now carrying [6 months].

 Cervical Spondylitis (Neck pain) of 25 years cured with Acupuncture treatment

Says N. Seshadri Sukumar, 50 yrs. 5, Rams Flat, 41, Murthy St West Mambalam, Chennai - 33, Ph.24854936

I have been suffering from neck pain for the past 25 years and I have been under Allopathic treatment with painkillers for many years. My spine X-ray showed the compression of T-6 & T-7 and also T1 & T2. I was asked to wear a cervical collar and every now and then asked to go for traction. This helped to some extent but I had to repeat the treatment very often I was without pain for 5 years when I was away from my native place. It can be due to my change in the life style with regular exercise.

When I was transferred back to Chennai, I could not continue my exercise and slowly the neck pain started showing up. It became so severe, my doctors have advised me to go for surgery. Since I was not for the operation of my spine, my close colleague asked me to try Acupuncture / Acupressure with Dr. Jayalakshmi who had been practicing in Chennai after taking her training from Dr. H. Bhojraj.

Not only she gave acupuncture treatment, she taught me various acupressure points to overcome the neck pain, which I could do myself. I sincerely started following the techniques suggested by her and started observing the great relief from neck pain.

* I have discarded the collar based on her advise and I have no problem for the past 6 months.

* I have not taken any medicines including painkillers from the day I started Acupuncture treatment.

* I am able to practice acupressure on my own for the past 6 months with her guidance.

Though I still have digestive and dental related problems, I am sure that I can get relief by adopting some of these drugless therapies.I can conclude that my 25 yrs cervical spondylitis was gone with Acupuncture treatment completely and my all other symptoms also improved with self acupressure.I thank Dr. Jayalakshmi and my colleague who directed me to Alternate therapy. I am very grateful to them.

 The book “Arogya Vazhvukku Acupressure” has in a very simple and lucid Tamil brought out the entire message of drugless therapy that we have been propagating.  The book also has a number of case studies from the cases treated by her successfully.  The book which can be easily studied and understood by an average Tamil knowing individual would meet our long standing aspiration of taking our method of treatment to a significant segment of Tamil speaking public.

 We also understand that in the last two months since the release of the book, there has been a great demand and the day is not far off to bring and publish a second edition.  The book was written by Dr. J. Jayalakshmi based on “Acupressure & Fitness Book and Advanced Acupuncture Training” by     Dr. H.Bhojraj.

 The said book “Arogya Vazhvukku Acupressure” is running to 160 pages is priced at Rs.100/- and is available with the publishers and with the Author.

Boon of basic course in Acupressure: Mrs. Vijaya Seshadri

 After undergoing the basic course 5 years back, I have tried this simple techniques for various ailments and got wonderful results.  I have listed few case histories with basic course knowledge.  Seeing such good results, I took up advance course with Dr. Bhojraj and graduated to treat others with acupuncture after pulse diagnosis.  I thank Dr. Bhojraj for his teachings.

(a) Black mark on the toe vanished:

 I had a black mark on my left big toe.  I just activated the liver and spleen points on tip of the big toe nail.  To my amazement, the black mark disappeared within 5 days.  At the time I’d not taken the treatment intentionally but understood its significance only later.

(b) Leg pain relieved:

 Whenever I got pain in my legs by standing for long, I activate Sp-6 and St-36, and am relieved of it immediately.

(c)   Relief during periods:

 Sp-6 is a magic point for period pain.  Whenever my daughter gets pain during this time, I activate Sp-6 and she is relieved.

(d)  Saved from II heart attack:

 My cousin, Mr. Giridharan was able to ward off his heart attack by just activating H-9 and heart reflex point and breathlessness by activating B-13.  After his first attack, I visited him and showed him these points.  Soon after that, he had a second attack, which he was able to face with this knowledge and was very thankful to me.  Thus, he was able to avert.

(e)   Weight reduced with Pranayama:

 Just by doing Pranayama for a week (in Swami Ramdev;s Camp), I’ve reduced by 1.6 kg.   These Pranayama technique cure also a part of or ‘Basic Course Programme’.

(f)  Balancing relieves back pain:

 Whenever I get low back pain, I relieve myself of it by just doing the hip balance.   This is the only balancing we can do our self without a second person’s help.  Once my friend came to me with so much of pain, we could see the pain in her face itself.  I just did balancing for her and could see the pain leaving her face & it was replaced by a smile.  Such response gives immense satisfaction and I’m grateful to Dr. H. Bhojraj for imparting these to us.

(g) St-36 for Leg pain

 While climbing   “Melkottai Hills’ my co-sister experienced a lot of pain in her legs.  I activated St-36 in her leg, which made her climb easier.  The next day she rang up & said I’ve no pain in the leg you activated and also “No Journey Tiredness”.

(h) Mouth ulcers cured

 A vegetable vendor once had mouth ulcers.  My friend Dr. Sujatha Palyam asked her to activate St-3 at the base of her little finger.  Two days later the lady returned with a beaming smile & lot of gratitude and gave Dr. Sujatha a bundle of greens free of cost and exclaims  ‘I did what you told and my ulcers have vanished’.

(i) Balancing relieved hip pain:

 Dr. Sujatha  Palayam entered this field mainly due to the Balancing Technique of Basic Course.  She was suffering from knee-pain & a lot of problems.  Dr. Bhojraj performed ‘Balancing’ on her and she was relieved by 50%.  This gives her a lot of encouragement to go to the depth of this.

(j) Lower abdomen pain cured:

 When I attended Dr. Bhojraj’s Basic Course at World Culture for the first time, I had a lot of pain in my low abdomen and back. Dr. Bhojraj just activated 2 points on my leg, which gave me a lot of relief. This had my interest aroused & I went for the ‘Advance Course’ later. Now I’m much healthier than what I was 5 years back.  This holds good for the people around me also.

(k) Fever relieved

 During this course, my daughter was suffering from fever.  Dr. Bhojraj activated a point on her hand, which reduced her fever.  She went into fainting for which Dr. Bhojraj activated a point on her upper lip.  Immediately she regained her consciousness.    We were spellbound by this magic.

By adopting Acupressure as our daily routine, we can enhance our immunity, youthfulness & have a better quality of life.  To quote Dr. Bhojraj, ‘Invest just a little in your health & see the results, without the investment in the bank one cannot feel comfortable in life’.

 If such is the effectiveness of Dr. Bhojraj’s Basic Course, the extent of his ‘Advance Course’ can be imagined.  His technique is an innovative method, very different from the classical Acupuncture.  His methods are painless, simple, less time consuming and more effective.

(l) Catch relieved with GB-41.

 I used to travel in scooter from Padmanabhanagar to Koramangala & back.  By the time I returned near our house I had a bad catch in my thigh region.  It was paining terribly.  By just activating GB-41, I got immediate relief.

(m) Vomiting sensation relieved with Liv-1.

 During my aunt’s son’s marriage, my aunt was feeling miserable – nausea, vomiting sensation, - tiredness & tension due to heavy work.  I just activated Liv-3 point on her feet and the relief was magical.  She was overwhelming with her thanks exclaiming “God has only sent you at the correct time”.  She commended “you’ve saved me from making a scene on this important occasion”.

(n) Constipation Solved with CV-25.

 My friends daughter Anagha 2 yrs old, has constipation problem. I taught her mother the CV-25 point at chin. It worked  from then onwards.  Anagha tells her Mom – ‘mummy, press my chin’

(o) Toothache relieved

 My music teacher was suffering from toothache. I advised him oil – pulling therapy. He did it 3-4 times a day & soon had good relief. Oil pulling strengthens the teeth & mouth.  It cures mouth ulcers also.
