Glaucoma – A Glimpse Of Hope Perhaps?

By P Chong                                                                                                                          4 March 2011

 As a victim of glaucoma, when the ophthalmic surgeon keeps repeatedly telling you there’s no cure, I am game to try anything in the field of alternative or herbal medicine . . . perhaps to catch a glimpse of hope.   Every three months, I dutifully & faithfully visit my eye doctor as required. Though both my eye pressure has been maintained within the normal range, there is no other good news except to keep on with the daily & nightly eye drops: Alphagan, Lumigan & Cosopt and to keep on visiting him every three months. All he can do is to keep my present eye sight under control & prevent any deterioration. No other treatment is available presently!  The problem is the dead optic nerve which no longer transmit sight images to the brain.

Perhaps now there is a glimpse of hope! With strides being made in stem cell technology, gene therapy, surely further researches could bring about possible cure.

Now, I have just read hat Glaucoma may be treated with Chinese herbs, micro-acupuncture and or micro-current stimulation (MCS).

Micro Acupuncture is a procedure involving 48 newly discovered acupuncture points located only in the hands and feet, and not associated with any other acupuncture system. These points were discovered by Andy Freddy Dahlgren, D.Ss., D. Ac., M.Ac .F., M.D. in Denmark in 1984 and researched by Dr. Dahlgren and Dr. Per G. Otte, D. Sc., D. Ac., M.Ac .F. More than 5,000 people have been treated with this procedure throughout Europe, and over 10,000 people have benefited from Micro Acupuncture treatment in the US. 98% of the patients treated have had a marked improvement in their vision.

Micro-Current Stimulation (MCS) is an enhanced adaptation of a FDA approved therapy used by anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons and rehabilitative specialists to promote the healing of wounds and transplanted tissues as well as to treat pain.

Glaucoma is such an insidious disease that can be difficult to detect until a significant amount of vision is lost. Glaucoma is often referred to as the “silent thief”, because most individuals with undiagnosed glaucoma do not suffer from any symptoms until they begin to notice a reduction in their peripheral vision.

If you find this information useful, please pass it on. Please consult your own doctor.

Sight is such a special gift from God
Without which dark is the world!
You may lose your sight
But don’t ever lose your vision
So said Swami Vivikananda.

Stopping that Nasty Cough!

By P Chong                                        Friday 17 September 2010

A sudden, noisy, and violent expulsion of air from the chest, caused by irritation in the air passages, or by the reflex action of nervous or gastric disorder, etc.

This is my personal testimony, often plagued with hay fever or catching a persistent uncontrollable cough . . . like picking bad habits . . . like having a cough of death!


If you are one of those unfortunate number that suffer from persistent & uncontrollable cough that keeps you wide awake at night (or even during the day), not just yourself but others too, it is time that you hear of this simple effective treatment for that nasty cough!

It is recommended that you do away with all past treatments & medicines. Forget about:

* antibiotics

No fear of harmful side-effects, as often accompanied strong medicine & prescriptive drugs.

You are absolutely guaranteed to feel extremely soothing & comforting with a sound sleep!

It works 100 percent of the time, although the scientists at the Canada Research Council (who discovered it) aren’t sure why.

Treatment:
 Vicks Vapour Rub is your magic medical formula.


All that you need do is to put Vicks Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of your feet at bedtime and then cover them with socks.

Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and you’d stay relieved for many, many hours. You’ll sleep comfortably & be free from that nasty cough for hours on end!

Cough medicines for kids often do more harm than good 
due to the chemical makeup of strong drugs. 
If you have children or grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed.

How to stop cough in 5 minutes!!! This is a must try . . .

It works like magic!

Remember where to rub that Vicks Vapour Rub . . . not near your nose, throat or chest as we all are likely to do BUT on the bottom of your feet!

Drug companies will not want to have this publicized for commercial reasons.
