Know Your Body - 26


Today's Fact

What should you do, to be really healthy ? In the present day set up with so many medical extravaganza around us....Really one needs to be "COURAGEOUS"  to follow/be aware of the right medical practices.......My son was born when I had high fever, so he was separated and kept in an air conditioned room, with all the normal routine tests (the X-ray person had to look out for his chest- he was so small, on the second day of the birth)....The neo natologist wrote every test he could conceive of., right from palmistry (he had a different "Regai" structure- which our Homeo doctor attributed to a very good structure- he had also learnt palmistry in Madras University)...... to scan......(to rule any/every possibility of any disease factor) ...And with all results normal (Thank God), he still prescribed a medicine for "Convulsions"....to be taken daily, and weekly check up with him (???) ........ We literally prayed that we should be sent home as soon as possible....(as our Homeo Doctor could not visit us in hospital).......as soon as we arrived home, our homeo doctor asked to throw out all medicines, He said - only if that medicine is taken daily , it will definitely cause convulsions......Now, I find Fazlur Rahman (MBBS) also repeating these words in his every book.........Our Homeo Doctor said the child was perfectly normal and we need not worry for anything and he is perfectly Normal.  And surprisingly our Homeo Doctor (76 years old) has  now learnt Acupuncture and is practicing touch therapy.....or pressure points...... 


Today's Tip

We have already discussed a pressure for easy delivery . LI4 in Know Your Body - 2.  Today we will see one more important point. UB 67. The exit point in the UB Channel. Gently pressing this point for a few minutes, will make the delivery very easy. In Pathanjali Health Centre, there is even testimony to patients for whom cesearean was prescribed and by simply by pressing this point (doctors unaware)...., normal delivery was possible....Additionally, if the mother to be is stressed, the pressure points for calming down the mind can also be pressed for a while........(discussed in Part 23 of this series)

Some more additional points....
Hoku - This point can be found on the top of your hand in the webbing between your thumb and index finger. Press on an angle underneath the bone that connects with the index finger. To stimulate contractions, rub the point. This point can be used for pain relief with steady pressure during contractions.
Spleen 6 - On the inside of the ankle, trace up four of mother's finger widths above the ankle bone. Rub for about 1 minute.
UB 32 - This point is halfway between the dimple in the buttocks and the spine. You can find it by tracing up one of the mother's finger width's above the top of the buttocks crease. You should feel a small depression where the point lies.
My daughter's Joke

I was earnestly explaining her the pressure points for sleep, with my experiences with Keshav's daughter......How to gently press the sinus points to get good sleep etc.,.She told me simply "Adhai vida better choice irukkudhu ammaa (too much vocabulary for a 2nd std)......"Kannai moodinaa thookkam varum".......Hearing this, My son says ...."Amma neenga acupuncture padikkiradhu waste.....Rithu evvalo simple-aa sollittaa paarunga"
