It is a powerful weapon against disease. Our body is a miracle of nature and has an extraordinary talent to heal itself. Nearly all physical and mental conditions can be predominantly treated by “Mind-Energy’ but may not be suitable for everyone. Some people are more receptive than others to this treatment, due to a number of factors. As such the results of healing can vary. If the patient has faith in the technique and the care-giver, this will of course help immensely. Mind is energy, a very powerful tool, when used correctly, can be focused with great intensity on the diseased organ or area, like a wound in the leg or foot, and help cure the organ ailment and heal the wound. ‘Visualization’ is a powerful mechanism with which, when properly trained, one can focus the mind-energy to the site of the ailment and heal oneself. These things must be dealt with by the person being healed. Care givers can help in imparting this training to the person in need and guiding the patient till complete healing has occurred. Our body has an energy field. Sometimes due to trauma, we experience negative energy, which creates blockages and stops the natural healing ability. Stress and worry will eventually affect the body. The reason one is sick today is probably due to a build-up of negative emotions. The effects of worry and stress may not show up today, but at some point, they may arrive as an illness.Stress lowers the immune system of the body. Thus the body is not protected against a disease. Once the stressful situation is over, it takes time for the body to switch back on its immune system fully. Meditation works largely by influencing stress response pathways. People who meditate regularly have lower cortisol levels, and studies have shown that they have changes in their amygdala, a brain area involved in fear and the response to threat. Physical exercise is very important for the body and mind. Many studies have given a sound insight into the positive effects of physical activity on the physical and mental health of individuals.Studies highlight the importance of patients' beliefs and emotional responses to their illness as being important in influencing their satisfaction with the consultation, reassurance following conclusive medical testing and health-care management. Recent research shows that the patient’s perceptions to his or her illness will have marked associations with the outcome, especially in chronic illness and will also affect the individual’s behavior in society and quality of life. This is an area which must be addresses with importance, so that in patients’ who have a low feeling of a positive outcome, this mental attitude must be changed so as to heal the disease condition. Since past many years I and my team, have been deeply involved in this method of management, and helping large number of patients heal the ailments of their body and mind. Of-course, many a time, opinion and management by the specific allopathic consultant doctor, is very much required. This may involve required investigations and medical or surgical management as is deemed necessary. We have thus been able to help heal patients with acute and chronic problems, some of them declared to be incurable. The time taken for treatment would vary from a few days to weeks or months, depending on the disease and many other factors. It is of-course very important that the patient have an extreme urge to cure his or her disease. Patients’ should have the willingness and mental ability to understand and be compliant with the management plan so as to affect a faster and complete cure. We must understand that it is the patient who will cure his or her disease. Inner acceptance of the ailment and the situation, by the patient is very important. Different modalities are involved in the management depending on the disease and other factors. This includes the patient intensely focusing his or her mind-energy on the diseased organ or area and visualization methods to heal the ailment. Care givers will in detail, explain the specific process to the patient and relatives, and we will guide the patient along the path to a complete recovery. You may please initially contact me through my website: www. ajitkumarvarma.co.in. Of-course, for proper treatment, one to one consultation with the patient and relatives is necessary. You may also consult me in my department of Podiatric Surgery, AsterMedcity Institute, Kochi, Kerala, India. In such case, it would be good if one of the close relatives could initially consult me with the case documents, and then we can proceed with patient management. “Love is the basis of the World, the essence of life”. I would humbly request you to please spread this information so that those patients in need; those with acute, chronic or intractable ailments can be helped and cured. Dr.Ajit Kumar Varma, was born on 28 February 1955. He completed his schooling from Central School, N.Delhi (C.B.S.C), in 1971. He passed his M.B.B.S from the University of New Delhi, in December 1980. He then joined the Indian Army Medical Corps, in 1981. While serving in the Indian Army, he completed his Masters in General Surgery from ‘Armed Forces Medical College’, Pune in May 1990. Here, he had immense experience in trauma surgery and various emergency surgeries. In August 1997, he resigned from the Armed Forces as a Lieutenant colonel. He then worked for a few years in a couple of major hospitals in Kerala, in the departments of general surgery and gasterosurgery, carrying out all types of elective and emergency surgeries, including surgeries for gastro-intestinal malignancies and laparoscopic gastro-intestinal surgeries. In May 2004 he joined the ‘Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and research centre’, Kochi, Kerala, a 1400 bed, tertiary referral hospital, as the chief of the Unit of diabetic lower-limb and Podiatric Surgery. He has been the organizing secretary of the International ‘Amrita Endocrinology and Diabetic Foot Conference’, held once in two years, in the institute campus. On 1st June 2015 he joined the Aster Medcity Hospital, a quartinary care institute, Kochi, Kerala, as Senior Consultant of the Department of Podiatric Surgery. This is the largest of its kind in India, and concentrates mainly on limb salvage. Cases managed include extensive necrotizing fasciitis, plantar-space infections, diabetic gangrene of the lower limb and osteomylites, and severely destroyed foot and ankle Charcot. This is the only center in India where foot and ankle reconstructive surgeries are being performed routinely in large numbers, in high-risk Diabetic patients. He has devised a novel technique of foot and ankle stabilization, ‘The Amrita Sling Technique.’ He has also devised techniques of using Polymethyl methacrylate, to replace severely destroyed Charcot foot bones. These manuscripts have been published in international medical journals, and the surgical videos have been uploaded in the You Tube. He has also developed a new polymer based footwear for diabetic patients, which has been ‘patented’. In January 2010, he was conferred with the prestigious Dr.S.C.Misra medical oration award. He is the principal investigator in a number of major research programmes. Most notable among these is the new invention of an entire foot bones replacement prosthesis. This again has been provisionally patented. By comprehensive management, the center has been able to maintain a limb salvage rate of 91.5%, in diabetic foot and lower-limb problems, comparable to the best centers in the world. He has over 200 research papers published in national and international journals. He has hands on experience of working in eminent diabetic foot centers in the United Kingdom and the United States of America. He has been invited as a guest faculty for many national and international Diabetic Foot conferences, the most notable being to the premier ‘World Diabetic Foot Conference (DFCon—2014)’, held at Los Angeles from 19th March ’14 to in 22nd March 2014. He was invited to speak on two topics, one on ‘Salvage procedures in Diabetic Foot infections’, and a ‘Video presentation of the ‘novel foot and ankle reconstruction techniques’, which he has devised. I have devised, For the First time in the world, a novel technique of foot and ankle stabilization, ‘The Amrita Sling Technique.’ This is lieu of an external fixator, after internal fixation. I have also devised techniques of using Polymethyl methacrylate, to replace severely destroyed Charcot foot bones. These surgeries have been uploaded in the You-Tube: The links are: 1.

The best way to reduce the ankle swelling is by keeping the leg elevated as much as is possible while sitting. Compression stockings or compression anklets can be used, to be worn in the morning, when swelling is minimal and u8sed throughout the day, and removed at night.

My husband is 36. He very frequently has mouth and tongue blisters which are very bad and don't go before 3-5 days. They are always back within a few months. This happens since his childhood. He was also a chain smoker for over a decade but has quit smoking now. Is smoking a cause for these blisters? How to know if these blisters are normal or symptoms of any dangers like herpes or oral cancer?

MBBS, M.S. General Surgery
Podiatrist, Kochi
It is good that your husband has quit smoking. Smoking can occasionally cause oral blisters. However it would not be oral herpes or cancer. Poor oral hygiene and vitamin deficiency are other common causes of oral blisters. He can brush his teeth twice a day, and use Listerine for mouth wash and gargling at least once a day. He can also take Cap Becosules-z one after breakfast for few months.

If there is swelling and redness of your feet, and with some pain, it could be cellulitis, that is infection of the soft tissues. Please give rest to the foot, limit your walking, please keep the foot elevated as much as is possible to reduce the swelling. Please consult a general surgeon, who can examine you and advise the required antibiotics.

This must be a sebaceous cyst or a small lipoma. Unless it gets infected or causes any discomfort, please do not bother about it.

I had gone through ureteric calculus uretoscopy before 1 month. And placed a stent inside. Can I take lemon in my diet? Is it useful.

You may take lemon in your diet. This will in no way interfere with the uretric stent. If you take at least 2 liters of fluids with the lemon it will be useful in washing out any small stones.
