Brain is an organ just like the
heart and lung. A visit to a mind doctor is respectable and necessary as we go
to a cardiologist. In sujok we deal with brain problems like dementia just like
we treat a disc prolapse. Sujok massage, acupuncture, magnets , seeds, touch by
finger have been documented all over the world for looking after the brain
Early signs of memory loss are
visible to patients themselves also but beyond telling friends in general , very
few people go to a therapist to check the degeneration and take treatment for
the brain. In India we only start worrying when our parents suddenly fall sick
by taking their blood pressure or sugar tablets twice or forgetting them
altogether. Sometimes it is just understood as old age when they ask for
another lunch or become aggressive or don’t sleep well. The disorientation is
so much that after getting up middle of the night they don’t know what to do.
Inability to recognize family and friends is common. The saddest case in my
knowledge, is the famous ghazal singer of Hyderabad Shri Vitthal Rao ji who
lost his way in a temple and was found dead in a railway station after more
than a month. Dementia and fast degeneration can be checked if taken for

Hiccup is usually an embarrassing unintended
voice from the throat after a spicy hearty meal in a restaurant or a party. Hiccup
could be one or many lasting for a few minutes or in severe cases for days or
Eating spicy food
Eating too quickly
Eating cold meats
Drinking too much alcohol
Excitement or stress of any kind
Stress on the vegas or pherenic nerve
Head injuries, ulcers, pancreatitis in
difficult cases are few causes of hiccups. The diaphragm contracts for any of
these reasons , this creates sudden filling of air in the lungs which closes
the glottis. Glottis is the valve above the vocal chords . This closes the
vocal chord by a lightening speed which makes the hiccup sound. In hindi
language it is called hichki. In telugu it is ekkillu In tamil it is vikkal.
For the treatment in sujok acupuncture
the therapist will relax the diaphragm, Vegas nerve, glottis and the vocal
chords. If the stomach fire is too much the hiccups will be loud and strong. If
there is stagnation of energy in the stomach or at the diaphragm they will be
continuous and small. This is more of coldness energy. Here moxibustion is a

system on the whole.

neuralgia is a shooting pain on the face like an electric shock, usually for a
very short duration (thank fully). The 5th cranial nerve of the face is
irritated due to the swelling of the blood vessel nearby. This pain is mostly
unilateral, and branches out into three areas of the face. The 1st branch is
towards the fore head and eye brows. 2nd eyes, cheek and upper jaw. 3rd toward
the lower jaw. Any normal activity like opening the mouth, brushing, chewing,
talking, or eating or direct wind on the face can trigger an attack. This may
lead to severe pain, weakness, numbness or paralysis of muscles. Repeated
trauma on the nerve damages the myelin which is the insulation on the nerve
fiber. Hence the information through the nerve is not passed perfectly creating
all the problems .Sujok helps in reducing the pressure of the blood vessel.
Releasing the blocked energies instantly gives relief, treatment soon after an
episode results in less severity in the next episode and with some sessions a
cure is achieved.
