Seminar was organised by the Homoeopathic Doctors Association of Faridabad and Nirmal Foundation.

Prof. Dr.A.K.Gupta, FounderDirectorAKGsOVIHAMS (Om Vidya Institute of Homoeopathy and Allied Medical Sciences) was the speaker of the second session . He spoke on the topic of “Homoeopathic Perspectives in Neurological Diseases” and talked at length about a very serious fast Progressing Degenerative Neurological disease, MND (Motor Neuron Disease). Internationally famous Scientist Steven Hawkins was the longest ever survivor suffering from MND.
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) also commonly known in United States as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is an uncommon degenerative disorder of motor neurones which leads to progressive paralysis of cranial and skeletal muscles. First symptoms may include stumbling, weakened grip, hoarse voice, cramp or muscle wasting. The condition is incurable and leads to death within a few years of diagnosis, generally 1-3 years. Death is most commonly due to respiratory muscle weakness and ventilatory failure.About 90% of cases of MND are “Sporadic”.It is considered to be an Incurable disease where medical science does not have much to offer. At AKGsOVIHAMS Clinics some encouraging results were obtained with Homoeopathy, which encouraged us to conduct this observational perspective research/study on the efficacy of Homoeopathic treatment in management of cases of MND said Dr.A.K.Gupta.
More than 500 cases of MND have been treated at AKGsOVIHAMS Medical Centre with very encouraging results where the progression of fast degeneration has been slowed down, checked also with improvement in the associated symptoms , which also is a big achievement though not claimed to be cured said Prof.Dr.A.K.Gupta.
Apart from many cases Dr.Gupta presented a Case with Videos of the patient of MND where patient has been restored to health whereas he was given a life expectancy for hardly a year or so in 2010 and the patient is Alive and healthy till date. Almost cured even after 9 years today where he came with marked symptoms of Difficulty in Speaking, Choking, Persistent Coughing, Difficulty in walking, getting up and Fasciculations all over the body.
This patient had been to prestigious G.B. Pant Hospital in Delhi where he was diagnosed with MND and was told that the life expectancy would not be more than 1 to 2 years at maximum. Though he was advised with some medications to continue. Then he came to me for Homoeopathic treatment to explore with having some doubts as he was told that there is no treatment available for his problem by the hospital doctors. After taking up his complete case history the treatment was started.
Within couple of weeks he started responding to treatment and his symptoms which were aggravating day by day stop getting further deterioration and started improving gradually. There was a time when he had lost his voice completely and had to write down to communicate with family, patient regained his voice and now can talk properly which is easily understandable. His fasciculations completely stopped, No more falling tendency. No more choking. Not only feeling better all over he gained weight also which he was losing earlier. The best part is he was exclusively on Homoeopathic Treatment said Dr.A.K.Gupta happily and proudly and got the applaud from large gathering of delegate doctors .
Dr. Gupta cautioned thatPatients should not ignore the occurrence of disease which may present with the symptoms like
DIFFICULTY IN SWALLOWING
TENDENCY TO FALL
SYMPTOMS OF TONGUE
DIFFICULTY IN HOLDINGNECK
DIFFICULTY IN FINE MOVEMENTS
He further said that though there is no specific laboratory test to confirm MND. Investigations like MRI Scans, EMG, NCVs and CPK in the blood are important. Dr.A.K.Gupta, President HMAI Delhi emphasized that Lead, Mercury, Arsenic and Copper also needs to be checked.
Prof. Dr.A.K.Gupta shared a very valuable observation which he made through his patients of Motor Neuron Disease that they are usually Strong headed people who have undergone some kind of Mental Stress due to their intolerance to injustice and been through wrongly understood person. He said this is very important from Homoeopathic point . He mentioned that patients come to AKGsOVIHAMS for treatment from all over the country though sometimes patients are not in a position to come personally for consultation and treatment in that case they avail the Get Online Treatment facility through our website www.ovihams.com
