to Vijay, when all the above are combined to provide a regimen, it forms
a very potent combination to help the body fight the intruders--the
diseases--effectively and without any detrimental effects.
Without Medicines" (As published in the Malibu Rotary Club Surfwriter,
California, USA Jan 8, 2003)....
Vijay K. Bansal
is an eminent practitioner and a strong proponent of healthy practices
for the maintenance of good health, without the use of medicines, as
far as possible. He is an honorary Rotarian from India--he believes
in the Rotarian motto of "Service above Self." Just as Rotary has four
avenues of service for humanity, Vijay practices and teaches four avenues
or specializations for individual health:
- Mudra Vigyan
(The science of finger postures)
- Chinese Massage
- Natural Foods
and Plants for Health and
- Routine Habits
Vijay has been practicing
these ancient scientific methods for the last 20 years without seeking
any monetary returns. He became interested in these ancient healing
arts when several things happened in his life:
While dining at
a restaurant in India he was being served by a waiter with a severe
back problem which caused him to walk with a marked hunched back--the
yoga teacher he was with went to the garden, picked a weed, and brought
it back, squeezed the juice from the root of the weed onto the bent
back of the waiter and massaged it well.The waiter's back straightened.
Another time he
witnessed his Uncle's asthma cured in 3 days, by a plant and finally
there was Vijay himself, sickly in childhood and young adulthood, bothered
by severe migraines, spondylitis and other maladies which required him
to take 26 medicines a day to alleviate pain and suffering.
In 1984 he stopped
all the medications in favor the application of the ancient healing
arts which he had started to research and recovered fully.
