While surfing channels one day, I came across a man, Amarjit Narula, talking about Su Jok Therapy and Bach flower remedies. Su Jok sounded quite similar to acupressure. According to Su Jok therapists, a disturbance of energy in any part of the body disease causes diseases.

Narula says, “Emotions are linked to organs. A dysfunction in a particular organ leads to emotional problems. For instance: heart — sadness, kidneys — fear, liver or gall bladder — anger.

Therapists believe that the hands and feet (Su — a hand, Jok — a foot) have active points, which correspond to various organs and parts of the body. So these points are used as a remote control, by stimulating them, to direct various body processes.

The thumb, fingers, micro needles, small-sized magnets, pellets, elastic massage rings, massagers, seeds, grains and colours can be used as stimulators.

Combination therapy
Narula takes out some methi seeds from his kit and places them on his thumb. He explains, “Seeds, based on their shape and colour, have a certain energy in them. When used as a stimulator, the energy is transferred to the body. So the choice of seeds depends on the disease. Methi seeds are used in cases of people suffering from depression.”

Narula uses a combination of Su Jok and Bach flower remedy for quick results. Bach flower remedy is the use of diluted flower essences to balance physical and emotional disturbances. Each flower is responsible for a particular emotion in the human body and a few drops of the right essence can uproot deep-seated personality traits and make a person feel positive and happy.

Singh believes that the success of the treatment through Bach flower remedy lies in analysing the information provided by the patient after a detailed discussion. He uses extracts of 38 flowers.

A year ago, he treated 48-year-old Raghavendra Sondur who was going through severe depression. He had lost his nine-year-old son to cancer. A few months later, he lost his wife too. He was devastated and spent sleepless nights. He worried about who would look after his seven-year-old daughter if something happened to him.

Emotional problems
Narula says, “I gave him Su Jok therapy to stimulate the areas corresponding to his kidneys (fear), brain (general well-being) and the heart (emotions), using massage rings and thumb pads.

I combined this with Bach flower remedy using extracts of white chestnut (repetitive thoughts), impatiens (sleeplessness) and the star of Bethlehem (to give him direction).” Sondur is almost 95 per cent cured now.

Then there was R Khurana who suffered from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He felt the need to wash his hands constantly for fear of germs. His daughter is a Thalassemia minor patient and he accompanies her to the hospital for blood transfusion.

Nirula says, “I stimulated the areas of the kidney, brain and heart. He had to drink the extract of white chestnut.” A 50-year-old cop, who wants to remain anonymous, harboured fears of death. But he was cured with stimulation of the area corresponding to his brain and an extract of the mimmulus flower. Now, he’s working on a teenaged girl whose emotional problems have led to a hormonal imbalance.
