Action in Life
Man stands between two opposing forces in life, the —Yin and the Yang —and the balancing act between the two will determine the degree to which one shall have health, happiness and success in life. The opposing forces in life are, the good and the evil, the loving and the hate flu, the friendly and the unfriendly, the rich and the poor, the successful and the unsuccessful, the big and the small, the selfish and the unselfish, the healthy and the sick, the happy and the miserable, the beautiful and the ugly, the materialistic and the spiritual etc.
It is the man who decides to choose those life-forces which are positive and constructive. Depending on one's choice, the rating on the success and achievement are decided. Whenever we are confronted with a health problem or for that matter any problem in life, we must face it squarely and act in whatever way we think best. It is advisable to consult the experts in that field and get all the required inputs before the decision is taken for action.
The moment the decision is taken,one must invoke the determination to carry through with the decision.The next step is persistence. After it is determined to do something or achieve something,one should never give up the course of action since something is not happening immediately.The final step is patience.Everything takes its own time to mature or to develop or to heal.Hence, it is essential to wait for that moment patiently.

I attended your talk in J P Nagar Citizens Association's function on 22-06-2002 and also have gone through your book ‘ACUPRESSURE AND FITNESS’. Here under are nw experiences which may be of interest to you.
1. Recently I caught cold all of a sudden and had a bout of sneezing.I applied pressure on all the 10 fingertips of my hand - one minute on each finger. The signs of cold vanished immediately.
2. Sometimes I get lower back pain. Instead of applying a balm, I activate 3 points on my foot (see figure 36 on page 76 of your book),duration 2 minutes each point and the pain disappears.
What is not clear to me is whether one should activate the pressure points on both the hands and legs or on one side is sufficient. I will report to you of new experiences in due course. I am 72 years old.

Course Director's comments:
It is advisable to activate the acupressure points on both hands though one side is sufficient. I welcome such feed back from all those who have experimented with our Single Point Solution. Thank you Mr. Keshava Murthy for your nice letter.
A note of appreciation:
A really informative site with loads of case studies. It is great to see someone who is willing to share his "Secrets" so openly and freely. Keep it up.
Yoshinobu Kawahara,AustraliaGoodbye to migraine headache without Crocin or Anacin
Says Mrs. Vijaya Sheshadri, Padmanabhanagar, Bangalore. Tel: 6390 290
I used to get migraine headache almost every month. First would take a Crocin, it wouldn't go. I would then take something stronger like Combislam, continue with the work. In spite of it, my headache would stay for 2 days, very unbearable, not even allowing me to do my routine work, very irritating, loss of appetite and sometimes even vomiting sensation.
Dr. Sapar says — “once in a while for headache, taking an aspirin is quite fine. But overuse of these drugs will just cause more pain. It's like scratching a rash. The more you scratch, the more it itches.”
Dr. Bhojraj has taught me to get rid of these headaches without drugs — by acupuncture and acupressure. Having undergone the Advance Course in Acupuncture, I can now deal with my headache attacks in jiffy, by just treating myself in the liver meridian and I feel relieved immediately and can carry on about my routine. No more tying a cloth around my forehead and sleeping in a dark room.
Also, I am now able to relieve sufferings of others from headache. My friend's daughter had headache when she visited us. She was feeling her head heavy and found it difficult to bend down. I treated her at 4 points in the liver meridian and she was immediately relieved. After going home she gave me a call to thank me.
Once, while working on a project in our institute, my partner got severe headache and wanted to go home. She said she would come tomorrow to continue with the work. I just told her to relax and tried acupressure treatment on her. We could see from her face that her headache had deserted her and she stayed on to complete the work.
Thus acupressure/acupuncture is very effective and fast in curing that nagging headache without any drugs.
Course Director’s comments:
Our own experience can only convince the power of acupuncture. Those staying close to Padmanahhanagar can contact Mrs. Vijaya Sheshadri; Tel. 6390 290 for treatment.
Problem with menses period solved by just activating Sp-6 point.
Says Anita Jatani, USA, via e-mail : email@example.comI did the treatment as you told in your e-mail, and got my monthly periods. Earlier, I had taken hormone tablets and still after the course of 10 days I did not get the periods. I was very uncomfortable. That's when while I was searching on internet, came across your web site. Being in US I had to depend on emails.
With your advice, after pressing Sp-6 point for 5 days, everything was fine. Thanks for your advice over e-mail. I will definitely try to meet you when I come to India next. Dr. Bhojraj, thanks for your advice.
Course Director's comments:
(Sp-6) point is very effective for menses related problems. Each
and every teenage girl should learn this point aiid activate it regularly
to overcome the menses problems.
25 year old Migraine and depression problem completely cured by acupuncture in just one month.
Says Mrs. Amita of Chennai - 600 004
I had been suffering from Migraine for the past 25 years. I had undergone treatment under various medical systems like Allopathy, Unani, Nature cure and also Homeopathy. Now it is only one month, since Dr. Jayalakshmi treated me with Acupuncture and I am very much relieved of headache. Before coming to her, I was of the opinion that Migraine can never be cured. I am very happy that I came to her for treatment and I thank the Almighty for the same.
For the past 9 years I had been under Allopathy medicine for Depression. Now under Dr Jayalakshmi’s treatment, I feel very much comfortable. I am blessed with natural and peaceful sleep and I am able to take proper and timely decisions.
and pray God to bless Dr. Jayalakshmi with long life, thus enabling her
to extend her selfless service to all those who suffer from various other
Two decades suffering (Fistula) completely relieved in less than 15 days with acupuncture/acupressure
Says Nirmala N.R. Mohalla, Mysore Tel:I was suffering from Fistula for the past 20 years. I used to experience severe pain during evacuation and the intensity of pain used to increase so much I could not even walk or sit. Doctors advised me to go for a surgery as tablets did not help relieve my pain, but could not get operated.I consulted Dr. Sujata Palyam when she visited Mysore in September last. She gave me Acupuncture treatment and also showed me the Acupressure points to be activated by myself .She also taught me yogic Ashwini Mudra. Within 15 days the pain completely vanished and I was cured very easily without any surgery or medication.My grateful thanks to Dr. Sujata Palyam for the treatment by wonderful drugless method.
The knee joints absorb much of the body's weight when we stand, walk or run. Normally, people who are over weight, complain about knee pain, so do people who engage in vigorous sports. Knee pain is also normal complaint of aged people. Whether the pain is due to acute strain or a chronic muscular problem, acupressure helps relieve pain, reduces swelling and increases blood circulation to the knee area.
Pain in the knee accompanied by swelling, redness, warmth and stiffness in the knee and other joints indicate Rheumatoid arthritis.
Chronic pain and stiffness in the knee with limited movement improving with rest indicate Osteo-arthritis. It is more common in people over 50 years and those who over exert their bodies. The cause may be wear and tear on joint tissue from aging, from being over weight or possibly from overuse in work. Normally, conventional therapy is to use analgesics and exercise, and in some cases, replacement of the knee joint.
Since kidney is the main organ which supplies energy to the knee joints, it is advisable to strengthen the kidney by tonifying K- 10 (coldness point). The acupuncture formula for knee pain is as follows
For acute pain, tonify (urinary) bladder with B-66.
In acupuncture therapy, joint pains are an expression of the weakness of the vital organs. Each vital organ controls a specific joint and when the organ is weakened, the related joint becomes a problem. By strengthening the organs we can cure joint pains. The required energy for knee joints are supplied by the vital organ kidney, and by strengthening the kidney, knee pain can be cured. It strengthens the muscles around the joints. Simple knee exercise also helps to strengthen the muscles in and around the knee.

Understanding Auricular Therapy
Dr.Bhojraj in action
‘The new concept of treating the human body as an invisible unit is gaining momentum in all parts of the world.’
In a house in Rajajinagar that doubles as his clinic, acupuncturist Dr. H. Bhojraj seems to box the ear of a full grown man. The clasping of the patient’s ear by thumb and the forefinger is reminiscent of a school teacher of a bye gone era who punished yours truly.
But what Bhojraj does is acupressure or auricular therapy, the art of healing with finger pressure over speicfic points on the ear. Renowned French neurosergeon Dr. Paul Nogier had made a careful study of the ear and its relationship with the rest of the body before developing this therapy.
“Health is not merely the absence of disease but well-being, not only at a physical level but also onmental. social and spiritual levels. The concept of treating the body as an assembly of seperate, independent parts – hitherto adopted by the medical world – has been proved wrong. The new concept of treating the body as an invisible unit is gaining momentum in all parts of the world.”
Dr. Bhojraj feels drugs merely relieve pain or give a sense of comfort but the body’s own inner intellegence has to balance the system to completly alleviate the disease. The simple healing he follows is known as “drugless therapy” and consistes of acupressure, zone therapy, reflexology, magneto therapy, colour therapy, Pyramidology, nature cure among many more.
Drugless therapy offers an opportunity to reduce medicine intake and provides a cure for daily ailments. The holistic approach, adopted by such simple therapies, offers the common man a wonderful tool to heal himself.
Interestingly, Dr. Bhojraj is a scientist in space research, having qualified as an engineer from Madurai University before joining ISRO Satellite Centre. He now heads its Thermal Fabrication Division. Bhojraj has travelled the world as as part of projects to launch or test satellites and has also received a distinguished award for fabrication of India’s first satellite ‘Aryabhatta’ 1n 1972. He also received the NRDC Republic Day Award in 1990 and 1991. His current areas of research include cryogenic dewars metal-finishing and thin film coatings.
how did he manage to get into the field of acupuncture and acupressure
? Dr. Bhojraj has been committed to social causes and involved in several
health campaigns, having begun courses on Pranayama and meditation techniques
for the public in 1982.
Through the six years, he has also authored ‘Acupressure and Fitness’ in 1994 and ‘Acupressure’ in 2001, He has also undergone a Pranik Healing course and practiced Reiki.
As a scientist/technocrat, he is busy during weekends but is awailable on weekends and holidays for consultation and treatment. By establishing an ‘Acupressure Club’, he has managed to spread awareness of the system of healing.
Says Sujata Palyam : “I was suffering from chronic illness for nearly 14 years. About five years ago, I attended Dr. Bhojraj’s basic course in acupressure. I volunteered for demonstration of ‘body balance’. The pain reduced by simply balancing the body. On my request, Dr. Bhojraj agreed to conduct advanced course in Jayanagar for a group of 14 people. His approach to scientific analysis and openness of imparting the techniques appealed to all the participants” she recalls.
Dr.Bhojraj explains Sujata on this therapy
Dr. Bhojraj sums it up. “Healing is the body’s own process to restore equilibrium when it is disturbed. It is a continuous one and comes from within, not exteranally. It can be assisted from outside from well.

As announced earlier, we started this year's camp on Migraine Headache in January 2003. A total of 25 people enrolled themselves into the camp. The registrants were from different age groups and professions. All of them were treated with acupuncture followed by training in self activation of the headache points in their first sitting itself. Most of these have reported great relief from the nagging headache from the second sitting. Many reported reduction in intensity and the frequency immediately after the first sitting itself All of them are much delighted to have been relieved of the headache without any medication (which most of them were accustomed to).
Though our Camp on Diabetes has been closed, many more have been enrolled for treatment during March-April this year on their request. They are happy to see their blood sugar levels well under control without any change in their medication. All of them report much improvement in their overall health condition apart from blood sugar control.
