With a mission to heal over 2,000 patients, using acupressure only, suffering from migraine, sciatica, numbness and other problems relating to the nervous system, Gurmeet Singh (50), a Canada-based medical practitioner, is here for a free medical camp organised by the teams of environmentalist Balbir Singh Seechewal.
Talking to HT, at the camp, Gurmeet Singh says, "Treating and healing patients with the touch of my hands satisfies me very much. Though I completed my MBBS from India before migrating to Canada nearly 23 years ago, I prefer to use this treatment more effective and result-oriented."
On day 1 of the camp here, over 150 patients were healed and provided personal attention by Gurmeet Singh, in the hectic schedule which would continue till late night, Gurwinder Singh, the camp coordinator revealed.
Bhagwat Dutt Sharma, 76, felt a difference after receiving treatment on day 1 and expressed hope that in the three days, as told by the doctor, he would be free of the problem of numbness in the lower parts of his body.
"I was facing difficulty in walking even, but after getting the initial treatment, I am feeling lightness in numbed parts of my body. It is a soothing experience," he said.
Other than the patients suffering from cancer and tuberculosis, Gurmeet Singh has claimed to treat all kinds of diseases. There was a huge rush of patients on Monday to get his healing touch.
"The allopathic treatment leaves several side-effects, and that is I chose acupressure. I completed four-year specialisation in acupressure in Canada and, after seeing its wonderful results, I decided to take it up as my way of treating patients. This treatment is really miraculous," Gurmeet Singh said, adding that, "In India, acupressure practitioners normally use reflex therapy for treatment which, normally, gives temporary relief but so far, based on my experience, I can say that acupressure provides permanent cure for many of the diseases."
Iqbal Singh Pannu, who has been coordinating the doctor's activities in India for the last 8 years, revealing to HT said, "all the patients are treated free of cost by the doctor at the camps here. Normally, in the winter's break, he is here for over three weeks to attend camps at different places with the target to heal over 3,000 patients but this year, his schedule was delayed due to personal commitments."
"Till March 3, the camp will continue here and after that from March 5 to March 12, a similar camp will be organised at Rara Sahib Gurdwara in Ludhiana district," he added.
