Neurotherapy ( NT ) is a medicineless, manipulative, alternative Therapy. Though it has its roots in the ancient Indian scriptures, Dr. Lajpatrai Mehra has reoriented and has evolved the different aspects of Neurotherapy, namely
The NT. Principles,
The specific NT. Diagnosis, The spcific language of NT. symbols & The different NT. Formulas for treating the different types of diseases/disorders.
Dr. Lajpatrai Mehra has succeeded in developing this therapy after intensive studies of diseases / disorders and correlating them to Anatomy & Physiology, then applying logically, the principles of his Neurotherapy to formulate the different Neurotherapy treatments to cure the various types of diseases.
Neurotherapy is a unique blend of medicineless therapy and medical studies.
The diagnosis includes specific Neurotherapy diagnosis and also medical reports like x-rays, ECG., Sonography, MRI-Scan pathological reports,etc.
NT believes that the body suffers from an ailment because the biochemical balance of acids, alkalies, hormones , enzymes, antigens, antibodies is disturbed in the human system. The NT treatment restores this disturbed biochemical balance by stimulating the various organs to function normally to produce the required chemicals in optimum quantities. In Neurotherapy, pressure is applied to stop the flow of blood to the specific region of the body mainly with feet and occasionally with hands for a particular duration (6 seconds to 40 seconds.) and then released, so that blood flows with a greater force to activate or deactivate the correlated nerves /glands / organs. This may be repeated as per the requirements of the patient, so as to maintains homeostasis of the body's biochemical forces, which in turn restores health.
In 1976 he named this therapy as "Neurotherapy" and in 1999 it was renamed as "Dr. Lajpatrai Mehra's Neurotherapy" to honour `THE CREATOR OF THIS NEUROTHERAPY'.
Nt. treatments are effective in treating Asthma , Arthritis, colds, injuries, hormonal imbalances, mental disorders, menstrual disorders, sterility, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, skin and digestive disorders are just a few examples.
Nt. also emphasises on regulating diet and lifestyle.
Some idea of the approach of the line of NT. treatment may be inferred from some of the examples cited below :-
Pancreas stimulation helps to treat following diseases:
• Blindness • Cancer • Cataract • Cerebral Disorder • Dropfeet • Heart Disorders • Motor Neuron Diseases • Multiple Sclerosis • Myasthenia Gravis • Night Blindness • Paralysis
Most hormones from Hypothalamus & Pituitaryact on a specific target endocrine gland. This gland in turn secretes specific hormones. When the level of these hormones in the blood reaches its desired levels, the pituitary and hypothalamus glands will stop secretion of the corresponding stimulating hormone of that gland. This is known as negative feedback mechanism. The pituitary gland (PIT) secretes hormones which stimulate all endocrine glands except the thymus, the parathyroids and the medulla part of the adrenal glands. It controls the thyroid gland (except for calcitonin secretion), both the adrenal cortices, the ovaries and the testes. Whenever there is a deficiency of a particular hormone, NT can stimulate PIT to secrete the particular stimulating hormone for that gland and correct the deficiency.
By God's grace, every chemical in the body is produced at two or more than two places, so that the person does not die because of deficiency of a particular chemical caused by defect in a particular organ. For example, 85% of Erythropoietin is produced in the kidneys Whenever there is less oxygen in the blood, this chemical will reach the bone marrow and the process of forming blood will start. When both the kidneys do not function properly, the liver will produce this chemical. Instead of 14 counts, haemoglobin produced by the liver will have 8 counts. NT gives importance to this point.
Our brain has 100 billion neurons and the spinal cord has 100 million neurons. The intestines also have 100 million neurons. 12 main types of chemicals are formed by neurons of the intestine, though it is true that the neurons of the brain form these chemicals in large quantity. If these chemicals are not formed due to a problem in brain neurons, there will be diseases like Parkinson's. NT activates the nervous system of the intestines (the enteric nervous system) and cures diseases occuring due to deficiency of chemicals prepared by the central nervous system.
Maintenance of acid-base balance is a very important factor for keeping good health. Acid is a substance which when dissolved in water produces hydrogen ions(H+ Alkali (base) produces hydroxyl ions(OH-), when dissolved in water. Normal pH of blood is between 7.36 and 7.44. If the digestive system functions normally, the acid-base balance is maintained. In most cases, according to NT, cause of disease is disturbance of this balance. When this is corrected, the patient gets healed.
NT. believes that a part of ascending colon is alkaline and the portion from the middle of transverse colon and full portion of descending colon is acidic. It also believes that the right kidney filters 80% alkali and 20% acid and that the left kidney filters 80% acid and 20% alkali. Similarly, it is also assumed that right ovary produces progesterone and left ovary produces oestrogen.
When T-Memory cells of the thymus gland do not work properly, it produces antibodies against the body's own proteins / cells. For example, if the proteins of the synovial membrane of the knee joints enter the blood, thymus will form antibodies against these proteins. The antibodies will affect the synovial membrane of the knee joint or any other joint and produce arthritis. This is called autoimmunity. In allopathy, the treatment is given with medicines containing steroids, whose dosage is much in excess of the body's requirement, thereby producing side effects. In NT, we give the treatment by stimulating the adrenal cortex which produces the required steroids in the right quantity automatically and therefore it will not have any side effects.
85% of the cholesterol is consumed by the liver for converting it into bile salts for digestion of fats. 15% of the cholesterol is consumed by the adrenal cortices, ovaries and testes for preparing corticoids, oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. All the other hormones are glycoprotein or simple protein in nature. Intestine produces an amino acid called tyrosine during the digestionof food. Tyrosine is used to produce Tri-iodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) of the thyroid gland and epinephrine and norepinephrine of the adrenal medulla. Health disorders may occur due to improper digestion and absorption because the patient does amino-acids, minerals and vitamins assimilated from the diet. NT is based on the navel setting of the abdomen, for digesting the food properly. If digestion and absorption are normal, then there will be no shortage of substrates like essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins and the patient is relieved of the ailments.
NT treatment for 2 years can regenerate the nerves in the part of the body, which has been de-nerved even for 2 years, if only the processes (dentrites and axons) are affected but the centre body of the neurone is intact.
