A Riveting Memoir

I present this book for all the avid readers I have come across while browsing on wordpress. The reviews speaks well of it, but the contents speaks even better.

To Whom It May Concern

To whom it may concern,

Recently, I was trying to raise some funds to do an important medical treatment, called MRguided focus ultrasound(MRgFUS), for uterine fibroids. I terminated my fundraising link, because of some medical information I received from a hospital that does it, which I thought to share. It might be helpful for others and as such, you may share. The more we educate ourselves, the better equipped we are.

I would have posted the entire manual I received today from the St. Mary’s Hospital, but it was a bit lengthy. So, I will just highlight few key points from it, if anyone is thinking to ever do that treatment:
I would think thrice, before doing it. I was told that the treatment would be between £5-7000 from the St. Mary’s hospital. If anyone uses gofundme, you should know that if you raise £100 you will only get about £80 or less, as the managers of the site takes a percentage of the recipients funds. It’s only natural, as people are using their platform to raise funds.

These are the key points from the manual I got today:
1.”MRgFUS can only treat your medical condition as it
presents to us at the time you are treated. Because the womb is
still intact, the environment that allows fibroids to grow is still
intact, so it is possible that new fibroids will grow in the future or
any fibroids not treated during your MRgFUS session will grow. It
may be possible for treated fibroids to grow back. Treatment is
designed to give relief to the distressing symptoms of this
condition without surgery and cannot eliminate your chances of
ever growing fibroids again. This is true for all uterine fibroid
treatments except hysterectomy.”

2.”It is important to know that MRgFUS will not remove the fibroid(s)
from your body. The treatment is designed to treat the symptoms
of fibroids and improve your quality of life by reducing the activity
of problematic fibroids. The treatment is particularly successful
with painful and prolonged heavy menstrual bleeding, pressure
symptoms and urinary and bladder symptoms. Once the fibroid is
dead, it will remain in place, with a likely maximum shrinkage of not
more than 50%. Commonly, shrinkage is in the region of 10-30%.
Shrinkage will not be visible immediately post-treatment with
maximal shrinkage at six months after the procedure. After MRgFUS, fibroid tissue does not leave the body via the vagina as in
uterine artery embolisation, and this is why women do not
experience the painful discharge associated with embolisation after
treatment. There are no known effects of the treated fibroid
remaining in the body as uterine fibroids are known to be benign.”

3. “MRgFUS is designed to treat the symptoms of fibroids causing
fibroid cell death, without removing it from the body. It is therefore
not suitable for women wishing to have the fibroid completely removed from the body. Although shrinkage will occur, this may be minimal in some cases. MRgFUS cannot treat cysts, endometriosis or adenomyosis.”

In the light of this info as well as what I had received recently, there was no point in me trying to raised funds to do a treatment, that would not treat the root of the matter. I was of the impression that it was the ultimate cure for fibroids, but it apparently, is not the case. So I thought, why waste money like this or why would anyone fork out so much money to do a treatment that doesn’t really do anything for them in the long run.

There are other alternative treatments that can help eliminate smaller fibroids, manage the symptoms associated, reduce their size, help prevent them from growing bigger or stop new ones growing and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, as the above, so-called quick-fix treatment.

Wishing you all, well.

Important Update

Namaste everyone,

Recently, I was doing some fund raising for an important medical treatment, for which I had made a post about it. Some of you have kindly shared it on your facebook profiles and I remain grateful for your merciful and empathetic gesture. I write now to say, you may now delete my link, as I have terminated that profile on account of some medical advice I received from the surgeon at the clinic I was hoping to do the treatment at.

My sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Had I received the information earlier from the surgeon, (which I practically had to drag out of him) I would not have started fundraising. Apparently, he is unable to anyway treat me. Bit of a let down, but such is life sometimes. I will try to seek alternative route. Incidentally, I have offered the two souls who had generously donated a total of £70, back their money. One, I have already given back and the other, I am awaiting their instructions. It’s the ethical thing for me to do and thoroughly incumbent on me.

I wish you all a blessed journey in your life’s aspirations.

Many kind regards

Wellbeing Network

Namaste all,

I’m not one to write many posts, as I am and have been dealing with some health challenges, in between trying to get my writing career on the move. My blog page, as you know surrounds health, yoga and writing. This time, I felt inspired to compile a little something on health, as when I blog, I often find people expressing concerns about their physical, mental, emotional or spiritual health. I had featured some few tips in that regard, but here I share something from a more deeper perspective.

Recently, I came across an interesting TV channel called Wellbeing Network, on which different people tell of their stories of how they overcame their health challenges, when they were at death’s door or given a death sentence from their prognosis. These are cases where people with chronic, debilitating, harrowing, life-threatening illness triumphed over their health and prove their prognosis wrong. Anything from being told they will not walk again or they have few weeks to live because of something like cancer.

What did they do? They turned to alternative treatments and therapies, when they found that conventional ones have failed them. The Wellbeing Network channel provides everything you need to regain your health, maintain it or give tools to help prevent diseases. You can access it via Sky TV #252 in the UK, featuring real life cases or online for those abroad. It was launched in January 2016 and focuses completely on health and wellness. It curates some of the best documentaries around the world I have ever seen. The ones I found inspiring are ‘Incurables’ and ‘Yogi Cameron.’

You will learn about all manner of illnesses and how people adopt different protocols to help them regain their health. We are often made to feel we have no way out or that we have to accept a prognosis and cry our way to the grave. On the TV channel you will gain insight into how people took their health into their own hands and find alternative means to recover, often back to better health than when they fell ill. It meant they had to make drastic changes to their lifestyle and diet, because you see, we can’t live the wrong way or eat the wrong things and keep hoping for a better result each time.

There is hope yet, even for cases where even I as an ardent believer in alternative health, would think that there is no cure for illnesses like MS or IBM or people at deaths door with multiple cancer tumours. The message from those documentaries, is not to give up, even when it seems there is no light at the end of a dark and painful tunnel. You will be surprised at how something as simple as changing your diet, can dissipate terminal illness, like 4th stage cancer. View the videos on this link on how you can reverse all types of cancers:

Yogi Cameron (who you can also find on facebook or his website) deals with general overall health conditions, while The Incurables (hosted by Don Wildman) deals with more severe and life threatening illness. You can find the episodes on Youtube. Both offer invaluable tools and tips on health and you will come across highly skilled specialists and learn of the science behind health. How you can incorporate both conventional and alternative therapies or simply just focus on an alternative one, if conventional doesn’t help. I was inspired and given hope and I hope it will do the same for you.

Wishing you good health and wellbeing.

Dear-India

My dear India,

I’ve been meaning to write this letter for a long time. Don’t be alarmed. I still love you. But there are things I need to tell you, if this relationship is going to work out. You might not change. That’s up to you.

My words may sound pretentious and judgmental. So be it. But I need you to hear me.

Ever since I heard of you, I wanted to meet you. The way your people dress, with their colorful robes and swirling turbans. Their amazing cooking, with cone-shaped towers of powders—reds and yellows, sizzled into the juices of a subji. Or seeds of cumin mixed among cauliflower-parathas. Your amazing life and history, with philosopher kings and queens roaming your lands, bowing down to sages giving divine benedictions. Incarnations of gods and God have brushed their feet over your grasses. Green fields burst with bounties in your south, while the world’s tallest mountains form your crown in the north. Even as a child, some part of me always knew that when I wanted to learn what the deal was, spiritually speaking, I would go to you. Once I was done playing (I’m still not that serious).

In my teens, I finally met you.

At first I understood so little about you, although I was entranced by the incredible diversity of people, conceptions, and ways of life, all coexisting in you. I came to you mostly as a tourist. Over the decades I have come to know you a little better, though your every nook and cranny still holds mystery for me.

I’ve also been frustrated with you, yelled and cursed at your people for following a way of life not their own. For taking up the technology, infrastructure, fashions and media of materialistic cultures, without taking a moment to consider their benefits and demerits. Why should a man wear pants, socks, shoes and a shirt in a tropical climate? Why should those from a deeply spiritual culture emulate others?

Has modern Western culture been good for the West? The family unit has broken down. The environment is in tatters. People are depressed and angry. The bubble of those wealthy countries looks so sparkling and enticing to you, doesn’t it? Your people feel yourselves poor. But how long until that bubble pops? Your culture lasted thousands and thousands of years. America is only a few hundred years old, and already it’s falling apart. Why follow them? Your culture is old and deep. Why imitate gangs of youngsters still learning their way?

There are some more practical things I’d like to address as well. It’s important in a relationship to feel heard, and I need you to hear these things.

Like…

Why can’t your people drive in any kind of sensible way? They’ve adopted cars, which are a deeply flawed invention. But as long as they have them, why not adopt a logical system for traffic as well? High beams should be used when there is no oncoming traffic, otherwise you’ll blind them. Your turn signals are there for a reason. Dots in the middle of the road are there for a reason. You’ve chosen to have vehicles drive along the left side of the road, like in England. Why not stick to that? In a working traffic system, drivers hardly need to use their horns at all. They’re really for emergencies. In most countries, you could be in traffic for an entire day and not hear a single horn sounded. Can you imagine how much more peaceful that would be? The noise on your streets has made your people half-deaf.

Your traffic system runs in the same way as your country: impulsively and selfishly. No one has any faith in following a set of rules, to lead for a better outcome for everyone. “I want to go into that gap between two stuck cars right now, and I don’t care if it causes a traffic jam for two hours. I don’t even care if I’m in that jam. I want to go into that gap now.” This is how people think within your traffic, and this is how they think in business, the police force, and the government. Everywhere. “Never mind the greater good. I want what I want now.”

For God’s sake, clean the place up. There’s plastic everywhere. Plastic is not like ordinary waste. It’s a very, very stupid invention. To make something which lasts practically forever, and then manufacture it to be used once. You can’t dispose of it like you would normal waste. It’s making your country into a landfill. Actually the solution in the West isn’t any better; people waste far more, then hide it in holes in the ground for their children and grandchildren to deal with.

It’s really better not to use plastic at all. Some of your states have banned plastic bags. That is SUCH a good idea, and a beacon of good sense for the entire world. Yes, you can be a leader in the world. You are in many ways already.

Yet you’ve taken these things from the West without learning how to use them. In fact, these things were made in such a shortsighted way that it is hardly possible to use them well.

But these are my quibbles. In any relationship, there are things that will bug the other party. Bhagavan knows that I’m far from perfect.

These aren’t the things which really pain me about you. What pains me is to see you losing your deep and wonderful ways to stupid and superficial ‘culture’. What pains me is to see so-called holy men taking advantage of the general goodwill, naivety and respect that your people have toward men in saffron. Foreigners come with this naive respect as well, and they’re also taken advantage of. It hurts me to see your young people wearing T-shirts of dumb-ass heavy-metal bands which are already out of style in America, instead of dressing in the beautiful and meaningful clothes of their ancestors. It hurts me to see your people’s intelligence sucker-punched by the British education system, so that they think their own culture to be backward, while considering a shortsighted, spiritually blind, selfish consumer society to be the bees’ knees.

If you didn’t have much potential, all this wouldn’t bother me. I wouldn’t expect a crow to become a lion. But you could be so much more, and the gap between what you are and what you could be, is excruciating.

Oh India, you are more wealthy than anyone I know. Please, please, please, recognize this wealth and share it with the world. Who cares if your IT sector improves? Who cares whether your infrastructure catches up with the west? You are just serving foreign companies who are raping the earth. You were meant to serve gods and sages, not greedy corporations. Explore your own culture and resources. Protect the cows and land. Honor the real sadhus. Honor your holy books.

Think for yourselves.

Because I need your help. We all do.
