This relative was facing a unique illness related to his nervous system. His head was slanted, eyes blinking and one of his hand occassionally shaking slightly for the last 5 years since 1995.
As usual, he sought treatment from the best doctors in the region. Money spent. He could no longer control his right hand and hence could not write. The doctor advised him to learn writing using left hand. He declined the suggestion.
It was until 1999 that he was introduced to a Chinese physian from China at Tong Shin Hospital, Kuala Lumpur, that saw improvement of his health. For a year, he travelled weekly to Kuala Lumpur to receive massage and acupunture treatment from the doctor before the latter went back to China.
In the process, he began to realise that to overcome his illness, he has to help himself via alternative medication.
He began to learn Chi-Neng Chi Gung in 2000, which became the turning point in his life. His health imrpoved further and subsequently he decided to let go all modern medicine.
He and his wife stayed us in Kepong last three days (19-22 June 2010), to attend their son-in-law’s graduation ceremony at PWTC. He is now a new man. His slanting head is no longer obvious and his hand does not shake any more. He can now write again with his right hand.
Cheerful and full of conficence, he attributes his health improvement to massage, acupunture and Chi-Gung.
The lesson to be learned is “health is our responsibility”. We simply have to help ourselves to reclaim good health. If there is anything we can learn from him, it is his determination to help himself.
