Haj is one of the five components of Islam and is a 5- days process of give and take between Allah swt and His human creation. Haj is to show Muslim unity, submission to Allah’s Will, and tolerance. It also causes strange detachment from personal, professional and social life. A pilgrim automatically becomes numb for his loved ones for the sake of love for Allah. All global pilgrims connect, learn, appreciate and get strength from each other. Strangely the gender differences finishes during Haj and all individual religious practices become co-practices with no social issues created. On 8th Zilhaj pilgrims have to wear Ahram with strict terms and conditions and on breaking the rules, penalty is to be given.
If you are a dedicated, sensitive, passionate and caring medical professional then you are vulnerable to suffer from a chronic degenerative disease, can commit suicide or become a founder or leader of a humanitarian movement. A passionate honest doctor consumes energies faster than a money oriented, numb and non humane fellow professional. After a long tiring transforming professional journey of mine, I am happy to share that Allah has saved me from committing suicide. I emotionally broke many times in my life when faced apposition from fellow colleagues, friends and family but practically learnt the power of faith, good intention, dedication and passion. I was in love with my medical profession till I started observing it’s failure in chronic diseases, pharmaceutical bribery and meanness of my seniors. It took me 15 years to realise that a noble profession is no more noble. This led to the introduction of holistic sciences in my life and profession. Besides learning I was able to find dedicated, passionate, humane professionals with their untiring contributions like Dr. Gladys, Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Andrew Weil the founders of Integrative Holistic sciences.
If you live life with open eyes and ears, you observe so many interesting phenomena happening around you. Being a curious and a keen observer, I am learning all the time from people around and my patients. My medical training has helped sharpen my in-born observational nature, but training in holistic sciences since 2004, further widened my scope of learning about the holistic aspects of human beings. Believe me positive thinking and good intentions are two important tools which reveal so many aspects of life without spending huge funds and forming committees. Being a student of Sufism, I also try to bridge the gap between a holistic being, spirituality and metaphysical sciences, for solving complicated life issues.
Every year dengue is posing serious threats to people globally. Last dengue episode was quite tragic and forced the Pakistan community to be watchful to the coming season of this monster epidemic. Last year my experience on few hundred patients taught me that dengue is not a disease of mosquito, virus and man but it is a disease of unhealthy lifestyle. All these who suffered from dengue have few commonalities regarding their holistic health .their food was unnatural, there were no food timings and they were suffering from undue stress.
In Oder to prevent dengue people should focus on their immunity enhancement. Currently we are trying to contr0l dengue by working on the mosquito factor. Mosquito killing sprays, lotions are dangerous because they choke your liver your liver and indirectly suppress immune system. Avoid unnecessary exposure to these chemicals. Foods recommended during the disease are useless, rather they aggravate the disease mostly their food habits are erratic and they are forced more into artificial foods for treatment sake. Dengue prone people are already stress prone people and suffered from emotional traumas also which further lowers the immunity. the past medical history of jaundice , typhoid and overmedications also indirectly prone to dengue .

The human body is a mass of about 50 trillion cells and each cell is an independent unit regarding its functions. It can think, communicate, grow, replicate and at the same time is connected to the main controlling systems also. It has an uninterrupted electrical and energy supply. Each and every cell is connected to mental and spiritual being also. Traditionally, public health relies extensively on conventional (allopathic) medicine in its quest to prevent and treat disease. The conventional medical system is perfect in teaching you the cell embryology, chemistry, physiology, and pathology. But it can’t give you any details sub-cellular components which are connected to mind and spirit. So the advanced and high-tech medical science is totally ignorant about two third of a human and knows only one third about the human body. (more…)
Much has been written about the benefits of vitamin D and deficiency related dysfunctions. We doctors are mainly blaming less sun exposure which is not the only reason for its deficiency. Problem with conventional medical system is that when it cannot find the correct root cause, it always blames a “difficult to cure root cause” which is humanly non-accessible. (more…)
One common, off-the-cuff mainstream criticism of alternative medicine is that it is not evidence-based. It is not possible for anyone who works for or advocates conventional medicine to say that without dangling from one of the higher peaks of hypocrisy. Even if you don’t agree, the fact that large crowds are increasingly giving the alternatives a try indicates there is a problem with the mainstream. Many people’s personal experience with conventional medicine is unsatisfactory, so who cares if it is scientific? Perhaps we should not gullibly accept everything published on Medline just because it is published on Medline. (more…)
