Case Study : Ms. Jennifer Tytler
Ms. Jennifer Tytler, the Principal of J.D. Tytler School, New Delhi, states, “In year 1992 when I came to Dr. R. K. Tuli, I was bed-ridden for previous five years due to pain and disabilities of cervical spondylitis, three slip-discs in my lumbar spine, and sero-positive rheumatoid arthritis involving every joint in my body. I had been treated by the best specialists here, and later hospitalized under leading Doctors in London and New York. But, of no avail.”
“Within three months of drug-free Holistic Medicine therapy comprising diifferent modalities of Acupuncture, Therapeutic Yoga and the Healing Touch of Dr. Tuli, I was miraculously CURED of all my ailments that have stood good with me over the last 25 years.”
“A few years later I suffered multiple fractures in my left ankle. But, when after six months of advised orthopaedic treatment and physiotherapy, pain and discomfort didn’t subside I had to think of Dr. Tuli. Once again, I recovered fast and have been ever since freely wearing my favourite but forbidden ‘stilettos’. The whole world should adopt this wholesome therapy that restored me to fully enjoy health, fitness and wellness in spite of the years added to my age.”
She likes to add further, “Dr. Tuli’s therapy is truly Holistic in the literal sense that it addresses the person as a whole. It didn’t merely help my body or all my joints and entire spine concurrently; it brings an unimaginable equanimity to the mind and uplifts the spirit of the person to another level! The holistic role of his therapy was confirmed further when I developed High Blood Pressure a few years later – all the tests and medications by leading cardiologists couldn’t control my B.P. over six months. But, within seven days at Dr. Tuli’s Clinic and 20 years later my B.P. has remained within normal limits without any drugs, in spite of all the ups and downs of life!!”
Case Study : Mr. F. R. Wilson
Dr. Tuli presented the remarkable complementary scope of Holistic MediCare by pictorial evidence of a 76 years old Royal Air Force veteran, Mr. F. R. Wilson, who came to him as a ‘cripple’ in miserable drug-resistant pain and wasting of his left lower limb due to inoperable advanced Spinal Degeneration and Severe Arthrosis of Left Hip Joint, as endorsed by following X-ray images:
The X-Rays No. 1 & 2 reveal severely advanced degeneration of lower spine and left side pelvis including the hip joint. After commencement of Holistic Medicine therapy, the patient had total relief from pain within 4 weeks. With continued therapy, the affected limb showed significant progressive structural improvement, regeneration and restoration of function over next few months, as supported by images at no.3 and 4, respectively. An orthopaedic surgeon commented that this natural recovery and radiological restoration is certainly beyond any expectation, while such reconstruction is not possible anywhere in the world!
According to Dr. Tuli, as evidenced by the pictures, Mr. Wilson got relief from his pain within a few days and about six months later he had regained full range of movements in the spine and hip joint. He was a fully rejuvenated to be able to do all yoga asanas, squat freely, and even became an exercise freak to pedal exercise bicycle for 30(!) kms a day. He truly resumed to ‘Live Life Fully’ with jest greater than any 18 years old.
Case Study: Mr. Anil Mittal
The 35 years old patient suffering from Severe Low Backache, radiating down the Left Lower Limb developed weakness to be unable to walk, or stand due to numbness in the lower limb and foot drop for the previous six months. He was advised urgent decompression surgery by all spinal and neurosurgeons. But, he was reluctant to undergo surgery as no surgeon could assure him for complete recovery from pain, numbness and foot drop. He commenced treatment w.e.f. 13th October 2009, and started showing subjective clinical improvement just after the first week, and felt full restoration of strength , mobility, sensation, and function of his whole limb. The repeat MRI on 14.1.2010 revealed natural decompression commensurating with patient’s full and complete recovery.
