My encounter with Acupunture was more of an accident than a choice. I use
d to work with my father at his rubber stamp shop as a kid. Little did I know that prolonged exposure to chemicals and molten plastic fumes was eating my lungs away. I got lung infection at the age of 11. Cold, fever and skin allergy gripped me in no time. As normal process, I surrendered to allopathy treatment. Those chemicals took their toll on my body. Gradually I got wheezing problem. Took medicine for the same which made way to tooth ache and cavity. It seemed I was living on tablets day in and out. There was a cyst formation around my breast for which I had to be operated. The nebulizer, that was given to me during the operation, dragged me into asthma. To make things worse, the asthma inhalers infected me and weakened my system, finally resulting into ulcer. Then came a prolonged period of irregular menstrual cycles, over-bleeding, headache and intermittent fever.
I was so frustrated by then, as you may imagine that I just threw away all my medicines in rage. Looking for an alternative, I was recommended into homeopathy. For the first time, I was made aware that lungs and skin are interconnected so can’t be treated individually. With not much help, I tried Siddha medicine as well. At this point, the reason of my prolonged illness was linked to my exposure to chemicals at my father’s shop. I underwent Siddha treatment for a while but the effects didn’t last long.
And then, I came across Dr. Sakthivel, acupuncture practitioner from Erode. I was asked 3 months of dedicated time for this to work. I had to change my diet, sleep habits, lifestyle as a whole. Elimination process started vigorously in the form of plum. I was made aware that changes would come at each stage of the treatment and that i must be prepared to deal with the same. I even acquired kidney stone as part of the elimination process but eventually that was taken care of.
After around 20 years of non-stop struggle, I was 90% cured. I could not believe the magic of this therapy. I was so impressed and grateful by this experience that I wanted to learn this science myself and help common people. Under the guidance of Dr. Sakthivel, I learned how to diagnose and cure any disease. In 2012 I started treating friends, family and my students to begin with. I completed my M.D. Acupuncture in 2015 from Coimbatore. I have treated asthma (sinus), ulcer, piles, fistula, menstrual issues (PCOD), infertility, thyroid, blood pressure, sugar, digestive issues, obesity, psoriasis, varicose vein etc. so far, to name a few, find more here.
Acupuncture not only touched me physiologically but changed my lifestyle altogether. The way I handle my body and food completely changed from within. True it is that every dark cloud has a silver lining. Gift of this age old oriental science was waiting on me beyond my long illness. I am grateful to have you in my life.
