Go for: Great chiropractic treatments and creating holistic and natural outlook towards health issues.
I came to know about Dr Jagdish, popularly known as Jag, long before I moved to Brunei in an interesting way. A few years back a friend in New Jersey called and said that she flew to Mysore in India for a treatment. She had injured her neck in a minor car accident and had difficulty with the neck movements. She got her neck fixed with just couple of treatments at Jag’s clinic in Mysore.
I haven’t met with an accident, but I have serious neck issues. Who doesn’t, with long hours spent hunched over a phone or laptop? As soon as my husband mentioned that we were moving to Brunei, I was looking forward to getting that chronic stiffness in my neck, which has been around for a couple of decades, fixed at Jag’s clinic. Jag lives in Brunei and travels in Southeast Asia, India and the United states.
Our friend, Sanda from Brunei, who also seeks treatment at Jag’s clinic in Brunei, drove us there. There were couple of patients before us. So we took a seat. Sanda went in to see Dr Jagdish’s trained daughter, Latha, for her treatment, and I went into Jag’s treatment room. Before going in, I mentioned my New Jersey friend, but did not get any response from the father-daughter duo. It is obvious that they treat so many that it’s difficult to keep a note of each of them individually.
Inside the teatment room, hardly had I finished talking about my neck problems, Jag made me lie down on the treatment table and examined my neck. He diagnosed the problem as a gap between 2nd and 3rd cervical vertebrate. According to him, the gap on either side of the cervical column was uneven. After checking the entire spinal cord, he made me sit and then turned my left as well as right arm in clockwise and anti-clock wise directions. With cracking noise, I felt the tension in my neck go away. I could turn my neck on right side without any obstacle. However the neck turning on my left wasn’t so free. Once again Jag worked with my left arm, rotating it from shoulder. He mentioned that it was deep muscle issue and prescribed some exercises. He checked on my food habits too. He found dals (lentil) as a major culprit and said that the stiffness in my neck was because of the production of uric acid.
He asked me to stop eating dals and go for beans instead, for proteins. Apparently his own granchildren have never eaten lentils.
Later I drew his attention to a finding that he had posted on his notice board. It was about the wheat crop.
The report mentioned that seeds of wheat are now irrardiated with X-rays for quick yield. It was concern to us since wheat is pretty much a staple in our diet. His solution was to switch to parboiled rice. He also suggested to move on to alternate grains such as buckwheat, jowar, bajra, and millet for making Indian breads.
After we left, he also emailed us few recipes later upon request.
Just outside his room, there is a donation box where we dropped $20, as per the suggested amount written there. I also bought a book he has written for $45. That money went in the box too.
One thing: I will not say that my neck stiffness completely disappeared, until I started doing yoga (vinyasa flow) regularly. However, a talk with Jag made me more responsible and aware about the food choices I make. Of course, he too believes in holistic approach in health issues. I occasionally refer to his book for quick references in case of doubt.
