Shrink and Disappear
I developed a chalazion, a type
of lump, in the upper eyelid of the right eye. It
was of the size of one half of a pea. A chalazion is
a lump formed by a chronic and intense inflammation
of specialized glands in the eyelids. These glands,
called meibomian glands, are modified to produce an
oily secretion. In chalazia, oily secretions leak
out of inflamed glands and form a central cyst.
Frequently, the inflammatory process results in
abscess formation. Sometimes an abscess breaks
through the inner membrane of the eyelid and
ruptures into the eye. This can have serious
consequences. The treatment generally consists of
removal of the chalazion by surgery.
Within a few days, a second
chalazion appeared close to the first one. The first
chalazion grew to the size of a full pea and the
second to one half that size. I thought about
consulting an ophthalmologist and preparing myself
for surgical removal of the chalazia.
I also thought about doing an
experiment with directed pulses. I considered the
possibility of avoiding surgery by bringing pulses
to my eyelids and flushing them with abundant blood.
It seemed possible to heal the chalazia with this
All healing occurs with energy.
At the level of individual cells in the human body,
and at the level of the minute structures within
these cells, energy is generated by complex chemical
reactions. Nature has designed these reactions to
create high energy bonds (called ATP bonds in
medical terminology) and to release energy from
these bonds in times of need. A disease state
represents such a time. All energy reactions require
oxygen and micronutrients. Tissues can obtain these
elements only through blood. It seemed logical,
though simplistic, that chalazia could heal if only
I could somehow flush the tissues of the eyelid with
But the surgeon and the pathologist in me raised
a warning signal. The inflammation in chalazia
causes death of tissues and produces scar tissue.
Over the years I have examined hundreds of chalazia
under the microscope. I regard this lesion with
caution in terms of its ability to destroy healthy
Could I selectively bring the pulses to one
eyelid? Could I effectively sustain such pulses for
a long enough period to affect the chalazia? Could
mere pulses in the eyelid really clear the pool of
oily secretion, arrest inflammation, and prevent
scar tissue formation? Would it not be risky to
adopt an untried approach to a potentially serious
health problem? Even if the pulses could dissolve
the chalazia, would they recur? Why not get rid of
the chalazia with surgery once and for all?
These were all valid questions. Still, I decided
to go ahead with the idea. After all, surgery would
always be available to me.
This simple idea turned out to be not only
theoretically valid, but both feasible and
clinically valuable. It provided me with a
firsthand, personal confirmation of the practical
value of directed pulses.
By this time, I had become quite proficient at
bringing pulses to my fingertips then directing them
to the chest area for sensing my heart rhythm. With
the very first attempt, I brought strong pulses to
my right eyelid, naturally and effortlessly.
Sustaining the pulses in the right eyelid also
turned out to be quite an easy task. I brought the
pulses to the eyelid by repeating five times each of
the following three sentences.
My right upper eyelid is
My right upper eyelid is
My right upper eyelid is
After I succeeded in getting strong pulses in the
right upper eyelid, I let the pulses go on. Every
now and then, when I lost the pulses in the eyelid,
I brought them back again by repeating the usual
autoreg method for it. I sustained these pulses for
over 15 minutes. After a break of several minutes, I
brought the pulses back in the right upper eyelid
for a second period of about 15 minutes.
The size of a chalazion can be easily measured.
One can roll a finger on top of a chalazion pressed
against the eyeball and obtain a fairly close
measurement of its size. I measured the size of
these two chalazia before and after the two periods
of pulses in the eyelid. The chalazia shrank to
two-thirds of their original sizes after application
of the pulses.
Hard to believe.
Harder to comprehend.
Hardest of all to accept
simplicity of it.
The temptation to dissolve the two chalazia with
more pulses in the eyelid was clear. Instead, I
decided to prolong this experiment. I did not
practice the method for the pulses in the eyelid for
the next three days. During this time, the chalazia
grew back to their original sizes. At this time, I
resumed the pulse methods, and practiced for four to
five times a day, for seven to ten minutes each
time. The chalazia shrank down to about one fourth
their original size in four days.
I decided to continue this experiment for some
more time. I stopped the pulse exercise for four
days. Once again the chalazia grew back close to
their original sizes. I waited three days and
started the pulse exercise for the third time. It
took me five days to completely clear the chalazia.
More than six years have passed, and the chalazia
have not recurred.
