Our innate potential for self-healing
Every one of us, from birth to death, day in and day out, exposed to unseen stress that causes disturbance in our equilibrium which in turn causes health problems.The psychological stress which is most talked about in our health science is only a part of the solutions but there are other unseen stresses which are equally important to deal with in a collective way.Environmental stress from chemicals like drugs, pollutants, subtle toxins in the food, bacteria, virus, Electro Magnetic (EM) radiation, even negative psychic fields in certain places can also cause this imbalance in our body, mind and soul equilibrium.
Pill for every ill has become ingrained belief or rather expectation among many people.It is much easier to take a pill rather than change potentially unhealthy lifestyle habits,which may be contributing to the health problem,The desire for an easier, quicker solution is the reflection of the denial of self - responsibility.Lifestyle changes are rather forced on individual who undergo certain shocks in their diagnosis or some catastrophic occurs.
Increased public awareness about the concept of wellness and greater public education, the attitude of people is changing towards better.The issue of self-responsibility in life is an important one in relation to personal health.The physician is in many ways an adviser and an educator as well as a healer.It is up to the patient to take the advice of the doctor if he or she is to achieve the state of health that is sought.
It is known that our capacity for staying in equilibrium (homeostasis) and immunologic capability is affected not only by physical factors,but also by our level of emotional and mental well being.Emotional conflicts, feelings of powerlessness and lack of self-love can cause major problems in our organs.Self-love or loving ourselves is as important as loving those around us. Our main motto is life should be giving our services with dedication for the betterment of our fellow human beings and not only to make money.Our illnesses are often a symbolic reflection of our own internal states of emotional unrest, spiritual blockage and dis-ease of mind.Our own states of emotion and degree of spiritual attunement of higher selves can play an important part in our health and well being.
Recognize you innate potential for self-healing.I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy,healthy and productive New Year 2005.

Chennai – 600 086
I am a college teacher; I have been suffering from chronic migraine headache, even since my school days right from the age of 14. I do not remember a day when I did not rise in the morning without a headache. I used to go about my routine with persistent pain in the temple region. This pain was usually accompanied by vomiting. At about sunset, the pain used to subside automatically, leaving me tired and worn out. Sometimes this migraine attack used to even extend over a day or two. No medical treatment was spared, be it Allopathy, Homeopathy, or Siddha. The remedies prescribed brought me relief, which was not to last long. I gave up hope and was resigned to my lot of having to live with this headache all through my life.
Recently, during one of my migraine attacks my colleague, a trained acutherapist came to my help. She gave me acupressure treatment and the result was instant and unbelievable. Never in my life had I experienced such relief during an attack.
On the advice of my colleague I joined the acutherapy course conducted by her guru Dr. Jayalakshmi, to be able to help others through this therapy. During the training course, the doctor gave me acupuncture treatment (yin wind reduction) supported by some homoeopathic medicines, she being a homeopath was an added advantage. The effects were magical. Since then this headache has not recurred. Thanks to God and to Dr. Jayalakshmi, who has taken up this mission of propagating this drugless therapy. I too, in my own small way, have ventured to popularize this therapy in my circle of friends and relative.
Course Director’s Comments;
Acupuncture point Liv-1 has all the potential to cure Migraine. Those interested in knowing the self help points are requested to contact Mr.Suresh in Bangalore(Ph 26644012) and Dr.Jayalakshmi in Chennai (Ph 2815 1832)

My wife had been suffering from knee joint pain for quite long time.She tried many systems, took medicines, applied ointments, oil etc., but in vain.The pain increased day by day. She happened to read the article on Joint pain in Mangayar Malar (Tamil Magazine), April 2003 issue.The Acupressure points were explained clearly in that article by Dr.J.Jayalakshmi.She pressed all these points regularly and sincerely twice a day. The pain began to decrease and, she had a total relief from the pain within a few days. Now she is completely cured and she is telling everyone about her self-treatment and cure with pride.
NECK PAIN CURED By acupressure treatment

Porur, Chennai – 600 102
Due to prolonged driving and riding and improper posture in sleeping, I used to get neck pain once in 6 months or in a year.
I take either Diclofenic sodium or other pain killer tablets for the stubborn neck pain and I get relief of my pain within 12 hours of my medication.
In the recent past I experienced a stubborn neck pain and was perturbed over the pain as my medication was not responding to in spite of taking it over 48 hours and absolutely no relief was felt. It was during that period Sri Nateshan Murthy was on his visit to Chennai and since I knew his competence in Accupuncture and Accupressure I approached him. After two sittings I was fully relieved of my pain within 8 hours and I felt very comfortable than earlier. I never had any problem even during my trip abroad after this treatment.
Sri Nateshan Murthy adds –Phone: 98441 23705
For acute problems, patients should be treated with general points first and treatment should be continued with the exact point related to the ailment. This will give miraculous relief and effective. This is my personal experience when I treat patients with acute problems.
from general health points as given in Dr. H. Bhojraj’s
book, the neck pain can be relieved by rotating of thumb and big toe
clockwise and anti clockwise for one or two minutes. The neck point
located in the ear will be highly useful in this treatment and the message
is first activate the general points and then go to the specific treatment
of the ailment.

severe low back pain about two years back. I got admitted in a hospital
for treatment. I was given traction and physiotherapy for two weeks. I
was also advised to reduce my weight. I had good relief with this
treatment for my back pain.
But again after a few months the back pain started again. It became very severe and I was unable to walk with little weight of my briefcase. After that I came across Mr. Bhoopalan and Mr. Nateshan Murthy from whom I received Acupressure treatment. It was a big wonder to me that in the first sitting itself 80-85% of my back pain vanished. And in the subsequent sittings it did reduced further. Once upon a time I had a false opinion about Acupressure. But after experiencing the effect of acupressure I made up my mind to learn basics of ACU and practicing it on my friends and relatives.
had undergone the Acupressure / Acupuncture treatment from Mr. Nateshan
Murthy / Mr. Bhoopalan and now I am satisfied and fully relieved of my
ailments and look forward to help others to avail the alternate medical
