From the Course Director's Desk.... 

Many people in the world are looking to drugless therapies for their health problems. Though we cannot avoid life saving drugs of modern medicine during emergencies. one can cure other ailments without any medication or with minimum dose. The awareness among parents not to administer antibiotics for cold and cough is spreading and the best outcome is people started questioning the necessity for antibiotics. Drugless therapies focus on the body's ability to heal itself and the need for people to live in harmony with the nature.

Though there is confusion and skepticism among people regarding the specific therapy to be adopted for their ailment, almost all systems aim at our internal healing power through different paths. Kindly make a sincere attempt to learn the system thoroughly and practice on  yourself and your family members. It is agreed that one system may not work for all ailments. Kindly choose the system which suits you and your present ailment.

The Auricular therapy can be tried by  yourself by activating the ear points as I have indicated. If you are successful, please write to me in a post card and send it to me for my records. Instead of writing the case histories treated by me, I would like to give utmost importance to your experiment with drugless therapy.

Many people who bought my latest book "Acupressure - A Drugless Path to Good Health" have conveyed their impression that the formula given in the book is working 

like miracle. One lady complained that she didn't understand anything from this new book. It all depends on your intellectual capability.

The old book"Acupressure and Fitness" is being reprinted and will be available for sale in the second week of November.Due to increase in the cost of inputs, it is priced at Rs. 125/-. The book will be available at M/s. Gangararms, M .G. Road, from 2nd week of November 2001.

We are planning to hold a two-day Seminar in the second week of January 2002 on Acupressure and Acupuncture and related drugless therapies. The Organising Committee will be formed shortly and those interested in taking active part to organise the Seminar may contact me directly. The call for the first meeting will be sent to you shortly.

Wishing you all good health and Happy Diwali.

Case Histories
Pain in the Thumb:

One of my colleagues wife was having the problem of pain in the thumb region and was unable to move the thumb to touch the little finger. Though it looks like a minor problem it was coming in the way of her daily work and she was managing the household work with that pain for few months. After that the middle finger also started paining and she has to physically bring back the finger to normal position after bending. Few months back, she was asked to consult the neuro specialist in Manipal Hospital and after all the tests she was advised to undergo a simple surgery to rectify, the problem. She was asked to come at a later date since the operation is not required immediately. The pain was nagging her so much, she almost decided to go for the operation.

In the meantime, my colleague approached me two or three times in the office to enquire about the cure for such problems. This is known as Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and after my assurance it could be cured easily, he did not take the action to bring his wife for treatment to my residence, since he felt the distance was too much. Within few days we had an occasion to meet in a party and after the casual enquiry, I gave her acupuncture treatment on Lu-8 point. To their surprise, the pain vanished after that and she was able to touch the bottom of the little finger with the thumb without any pain. She convinced her husband about our cure and infact forced him to take her for another sitting after a month for the middle finger.This time the pericardium point P- 6 was activated with acupressure. Though there is some improvement, it was not fully cured after 15 days. But she was convinced that the operation suggested by the specialist was not required and she had determined to solve the problem with acupressure or acupuncture.


Abdomen pain relieved with in minutes with Acupressure:
- Says Mr. L.R. Ramasamy, 392. 5th Main. III Block,
III PHase. III Stage BSK, Bangalore. Ph: 6697219
My 20 years old son Mr M.R. Karthik. after the dinner, complained about abdominal pain and the intensity was so much that we thought of calling a doctor immediately. As I had undergone introductory Acupressure course, two years back, I thought of using this technique since I got very good results for many common ailments. I used zone therapy principle and applied on and off pressure on the index finger and middle finger for two minutes each. Within 10 minutes, he was relieved from the abdominal pain. It was a great relief for all of us in the house and the doctor was not called.

I have given very good relief to my wife's backache with spinal massage and also by activating Li-4 and B-40.

In fact all our family members have not gone to the doctor or taken medicine for the past two years i.e. from the day I learn Acupressure from Dr. Bhojraj. Thanks to Dr. Bhojraj.

  Voice restored with Acupuncture for my sister-in-law.
Says Smt.Sujatha Palyam
My sister-in-law who stays in USA came here for a conference and immediately after arrival in India, her throat got infected due to water. She was with us for two days and was preparing herself to meet a doctor for some antibiotics. 
After listening to my acupressure and acupuncture training, she wanted to try my treatment. In fact her voice was totally off and she had to present a paper in the conference the very next day. I gave her dryness reduction of lung meridian with acupuncture. To her utter disbelief, she could talk properly after one hour and she was really happy to get back her original voice for the presentation. I myself never thought it would work so quickly.

She not only thanked me for the immediate relief but also promised to learn this art of acupressure.

  Back Pain - Surgery Avoided with Acupuncture treatment.
Says Mrs. Annu Gupta, Director, Finance, 
Kavia Engg. Pvt. Ltd. Tel 5534 350
I had an acute back pain attack in December 2000,and was on pain killers for a month. After that too I was on physiotherapy and complete bed rest for another month. I was advised to go for surgery since my case was diagnosed as prolapsed slip disc and the only treatment was surgery. I gave myself one year to try alternative treatments before deciding on surgery. I was regularly exercising and resting but the pain would never completely go away. Also, I would get acute pain attacks. I started the treatment with Dr. Bhojraj in July 2001. To my great surprise the pain totally vanished after 2-3 weeks of treatment. Now I still have to be very careful with my back and have to exercise regularly to avoid any discomfort and pain in the back. But my life has returned to normal.

I thank Dr. Bhojraj for bringing me back to normal life and pray that this boon of acupuncture becomes available to all those who suffer from this condition.

  Diabates under control with Acupuncture treatment.
says Mrs. Nalini Gopal, 
State Bank of India, Bangalore
My husband is a diabetic since four years. He was prescribed two types of tablets to be taken before breakfast and was given a diet chart to be followed strictly. He started taking the medicine regularly and followed strict diet and also walking about 5 to 6 kms. per day. His sugar level came down from; fasting-160 to 145 and PPBS from 320 to 220. This was continuing with a little variations. Some times it used to go still high and according to that the medicines used to be increased. Recently, during January 2001, I attended the Basic programme in Acupressure conducted by Dr. H. Bhojraj and was very much impressed by what he told us. My husband immediately met Dr. Bhojraj and after one sitting of Acupuncture, the sugar level came to normal. When my husband went to Dr. Bhojraj the sugar level was Fasting - 180, PPBS 240 (in June 2001). After two sittings, he checked his sugar level and the Fasting was 108, PPBS:138 (in September 2001).

Now he takes half tablet only. He is still walking 5 to 6 kms. every day and he follows diet. He occasionally takes sweets also. My husband and myself are very grateful to Dr. Bhojraj.


Finger Pain Diagnosis 
Know the Organ in distress and treat yourself.
By Dr. H. Bhojraj
The Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water) indicate five emotions (anger, joy, worry, grief and fear), five intellectual capabilities (originality, desire, consciousness, will and wisdom), five tastes (sour. bitter, sweet, hot spicy and salty), five sensors (eve, tongue, skin, nose and ears) and five energies (wind, heat & hotness, humidity, dryness and coldness). These five elements are also represent the five fingers and five toes. In this article let us try to understand the organs connected with the fingers and how to correct the organs to get relief from finger pain.

In fact even the health of nails indicate the general health and the health of the this particular organ indicated by the finger.

Thumb (Lungs)

As we know the lung meridian ends in the thumb and Lung 11 is the wind point very useful to relieving headache.
Though it is not essential to get the indication on the nails to get the problem connected with lungs, most of the times we can get some change in the colour of the nail, or some white lines on the thumb nail, or blackening of thumb nail, pain in the thumb or unable to move the thumb. The above problems of the thumb or thumbnail indicate the deficiency of lungs. By energising the lungs with acupressure or acupuncture, we can avoid asthma. TB, Pneumonia and other problems connected with lungs in the beginning of the problem itself.

For Thumb (pain) - Increase the energy of Lung - (Lu-8).

Index Finger (Large Intestine)

The Large Intestine starts at the tip of the index finger. Any pain or numbness or unable to fold the finger without pain or itching on the index finger indicates the dysfunction of large intestine. Any change in the index finger nail also indicates Large Intestine problem. Any problem connected with large intestine like constipation, diarrhoea, pain in the abdomen, amebeosis, piles, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), rectal pro lapse etc. can be cured by activating the points in this finger. So don't take the pain in your index finger so easily. It indicates that problem is brewing in Large Intestine and will manifest in near future.

So prevent it by activating the appropriate points in the Large Intestine meridian as given in the book.

Middle finger (Pericardium / Brain)

In traditional acupuncture pericardium, the sac of the heart is considered as one of the 12 organs connected with the meridian. Latest research indicates it represents the Brain also. It represents the nervous system. Pain in the chest region, heavy breathing, heaviness in the chest or pricking pain etc. can be treated in this meridian. The changes in the middle finger indicates the problem either in the pericardium or in the nervous system.

Ring Finger (Triple Warmer / Spinal Cord)

As per the traditional acupuncture our body is divided into three cavities and triple warmer meridian controls the temperatures of all the organs situated in these three cavities. The first cavity holds Heart and Lungs, the second one holds Stomach and Spleen and the third one holds Kidney, Liver and Urinary Bladder. The temperature of all the organs are controlled through this meridian. In this latest research, it indicates the spinal cord which is paired with the organ Brain. It controls the function of all organs through the nervous system.

Fever for children can be easily cured without any medication with this meridian. Even rheumatic fever, due to TB infection, pneumonia fever, due to cold can all be treated in this meridian.

When the heat is not controlled in the spleen and stomach, it creates gas problem, pain in the stomach, ulcer, hyper acidity etc. Even burning sensation in the stomach, blurpping and inflammation of stomach are due to the heat in the stomach.

The excess heat in the spleen can create spleenomegaly. The deficiency of energy in spleen can cause anaemia, Thalassemia (sickle cell anaemia), leukaemia, Haemophilia etc. Fever due to malaria and filaria can also be treated in this meridian.

By activating the acupoints in the meridian, even typhoid fever can be cured without taking any antibiotics. Most of the people who suffer from heart ailments were treated with antibiotics for rheumatic fever. The rheumatic fever can be treated in this meridian and can avoid future heart ailments for children.

Symptoms of the ring finger, pain or unable to bend indicate that Triple Warmer meridian is in problem.

For infection, activate immune system workout as given in the new book or refer Anthrax in our web site http://bhojraj.tripod.com
Little finger (Heart & Small Intestine)

Little finger represents the heart and small intestine. The heart meridian ends in the inner side of the little finger nail and the small intestine starts at the outer side of the nail. Usually in marriages the bride and bridegroom are asked to join their little fingers to make a beginning by joining their hearts during the ceremony.

Heart point H-9 can save a person from heart attack, bypass surgery and any heart ailments according to the acupuncture texts. If you are not getting good sleep, gently press and release the bottom of the little finger nail 10 to 20 times and one will get deep sleep with in few minutes. 

The finger has the potential to render all cardiologists jobless and the equipments ECG, Echocardiogram obsolete if this knowledge spreads everywhere.Since small intestine starts at this little finger, by activating Si-l point for lactating mothers, they can observe proper secretion of mother's milk for their child. We can treat for problems of small intestine in the little finger.

Normally any pain in the little finger should not be ignored. It is the forewarning for any small intestine or heart related problem. Learn acupressure and activate the points to prevent the disease or take pain killers and allow the disease to grow inside. Choice is yours.

In next issue, we will study the toes.

Auricular Therapy
-Dr. H. Bhojraj

Continuation from previous issue
In the last issue, we have given an introduction on this auricular therapy i.e. ear acupressure. Ear acupuncture as preventive therapy is not vet established because many people are ignorant of such a useful system in our body. But certain disease like asthma, motion sickness, knee pain, heel pain etc. were not only cured but regular activation had helped few trainees to prevent them.

For diagnostic purposes, one or more points are to be identified and correlated with the (imposition of the foetus in the ear) inverted embryo in the mothers womb. Under normal conditions, the ear points of a healthy person do not have any special responses. When a problem exists in an internal organ or any other parts of the body, there are one or more responsive ear points corresponding to the disorder. Generally, the number of points which respond is directly proportional to the intensity of the illness. However, the point can only reflect the area and for the organ of the disorder. It does not indicate the cause of the disorder.

Ear anatomy - Learn this thoroughly

This series will focus on the therapeutic aspect of acupressure and its use by the common man with no knowledge on medical system. As far as the system is concerned, it has the potential to cure any disease but one can try for many common ailments like backache, headache, shoulder pain, knee pain etc. in the initial stages.

It is better to undergo the introductory course in acupressure and then try the acupressure for various other ailments.

Learn these terminology and the corresponding organs:

8 SCAPHA - Bow-shaped groove between helix and antihelix corresponding to upper extremities (arms & fingers)

9 TRAGUS - The fleshy’ protrusion in front of ear corresponds to adrenal gland, nose etc.

10 SUPRATRAGIC NOTCH - Depressed part between upper tragus and limb of helix corresponds to ear itself.

11 INTERTRAGIC NOTCH - In depression between lower tragus and antitragus corresponds to internal secretion.
12 CYMBA CONCHA - Portion of concha above limb of helix corresponds to abdominal organs.

13 CAVUM CONCHA - Portion of concha below limb of helix corresponds to chest region

14 CONCHA EDGE OF ANTIHELLEX - Curved edge of the antihelix with concha corresponds to spinal column.
15 HELIX - Outer curved rim of the ear corresponds to liver. 

Kindly read the previous issue also on ear acupressure and make yourself familiar with ear anatomy which we will be referring in later issues for location of the point.

Neck Pain - Tension & Stiffness in the neck

Finger Pain - (For any finger)

Open and close your fingers as you give acupressure at this point.


Massage all these points 2 minutes at every point, 3 times a day for atleast three weeks.

Avoid hot spicy food and eat atleast 2 hours before going to bed. Don’t drink water after dinner.

If it works, please drop a post card to the Course Director.

Iridology is a diagnostic science connected with the IRIS of the eye which reflects the problem in any portion of the body well in advance. Since iris is connected to organ and tissue by way of the brain and nervous system, any change in IRIS can be observed for the malfunction of the whole body.

Iridology’ dates back to the early 1800s when a young Hungarian, Ignatz Von Peczelv, caught an owl in his garden. While struggling with the owl, he accidentally broke its leg. When he looked into the owl's eyes, he saw a black stripe appear. As he nursed it back to health, the black stripe was replaced by white lines. Years later, von Peczely became a doctor and observed changes in his patient's eyes after accidents, surgeries, and illnesses. He created the first chart of the iris based on these findings.

Modern Iridology was pioneered by Dr. Bernard Jonson of USA, who developed a map of the iris that represents the placement of organs and tissues. The iris is divided into seven zones; the right iris is comparable to the right side of the body; the left, to the left side. There are 90 known specific areas on each iris and each iris is different. These specific areas and the organs connected to it will be covered in subsequent issues.


Zones No. 1. Stomach 2. Intestines 3. Heart, Bronchi, Pancreas, Adrenal,Pituitary. Pineal, Gall Bladder 4. Prostrate, Uterus Skeleton 5. Brain, Lung, Liver, Kidneys, Thyroid 6. Muscles, Motor Nerves, Lymphatic circulatory 7. Skin, Sensory’ Nerves.
