For last two weeks i had a problem of disturbed vision in my right eye. It gives a hazy picture. On consultation of Eye specialist he finally made comment that blood is not getting circulated at some points. It is choked. So it is not recoverable.
Can you give some idea?

Ajay Raman December 26, 2014 - 9:48 PM

Hi Partha Bose,

Just now I saw your consulted with Eye Specialist. According to him your eye is not getting circulated with blood. So for this you have to do Pranayam regularly 15 minutes X 3 times a day. 1 time early in the morning. After doing the Pranayam for 15 minutes then have a warm water (without mixing hot water with cold). This warm water will remove toxins from the blood. And eat carrot and beatroot.

Within 7 days you will get improvement without taking any Junk alopathy medicines.

It’s unfair that so many seasonal-allergy sufferers view spring as time to stay indoors. No more, thanks to acupuncture.

Sir/Madam, I had undergone a Glucoma surgery on my left eye. At present, I am getting 10% to 30% vision only. Is it possible to get 100% vision by Chineese Accuepuncture treatment ? Ifso, Please let me know ? – r s thirumurthy, Coimbatore, India

This is NOT a substitute for seeing qualified medical personnel, but my experience is that often-with minor eyesight problems–there is a cervical spine connection. In fact, I often will awaken with some blurriness. Yet, after I work on my neck (or see my chiropractic colleague), this usually is resolved in a short time. Acupuncture might help too. It definitely made a difference with resolving some hearing loss about a month ago (along with some Chinese herbs, and chiropractic).
