This therapy works best when it is given by one person to another.
Our country has a large labour force. Dr. Mehra envisages rightly that if the youth of rural India could be given proper training they could be gainfully employed to spread this therapy in all tehsils and right upto the grass roots level. Hence our goal is to train as many youngsters of either sex as possible, so that within a reasonably short period a number ofLMNT centers can be set up all over India, to bring speedy relief to the masses. To this effect, from 1999, he has been approaching various social organisations to send eligible candidates.
Several organisations responded to Dr. Mehra's clarion call for sending students for Training at the Academy at Suryamal.Among these are SevaBharati; the Madhya Pradesh Government under MPRLP scheme; ShriMaaSharadaRashtriyaSewaSamiti (SMSRSS) Delhi; Srishti, Punjab&West Bengal (WB); VivekanandaSevaBharati,WB etc.
To make the training effective and to make proper use of the trained personnel, the following additional techniques have beenadopted :
- Students who show academic excellence are encouraged to become teachers for subsequent courses, thus providing them employment and a dignified life.
- Conduction of FREE CAMPS :Students who complete the training and internship are given all possible support, so that they may successfully run LMNT centers in their respective towns / villages.Such support involves helping them to conduct free camps in their areas. These camps are very popular with the public and have met with tremendous success. The phenomenal results obtained in these camps have to be seen to be believed. In addition, they serve to motivate the fresh trainees and boosts up their morale.
After learning the techniques at Dr. Mehra’s Ashram/Academy, these students run their own centres where LMNT techniques are the SOLE mode of treatment. These centers are run either with the help of socially-minded organisations such as SevaBharathi or, by the students themselves, independently and without any involvement – financially – fromDr. Mehraor his team of teachers.
Success stories of how this therapy benefits villagers can be seen in the following link of the MP government: http://www.mprlp.in/Stories/Story2.htm
Except for his private clinic in Bandra, Mumbai, all other centres run independently without any financial benefit to Dr. Mehra.
The Ashram/Academy is situated in 11 acres of mountain land in a vanwasi area.
- However,whenever the students require any form of technical assistance in treating patients of specific disorders, Dr. Mehra or his senior teachers are always ready to help out. Since the basic points are already known to the students, it is sufficient that suggestions are given on phone – which is done free of charge. In serious cases, Dr. Mehra or his senior teachers may visit any centre at the express invitation of a student or any patient. Usually the patient or other philanthropists takes care of the expenses involved. In exceptional cases, Dr. Mehra does not hesitate to foot the bill himself, too!
- Dr. Mehra has been treating patients at a nominal charge at the clinic in Bandra, Mumbai, from 1986 onwards. The number of patients treated, in the last three decades, is > 70,000.
All activities relating to spread of Neurotherapy in is primarily funded by Dr. Mehra from his earnings at the Bandra clinic. Of late, some donations are received from a handful of the past students and well-wishers. These are eligible for tax deduction under Sec. 80G.
Both Ashram and Academy have separate PAN Nos. AAATD 4709 M / AAATD 6575F
- Most importantly, in case of patients of disorders where the treatment is to be given for a number of months or years, the technique adopted is that certain treatments are taught to the parents or relatives and they are encouraged to give the treatments at home. The motto here being, welfare of patients takes top priority; personal gains take a second place.
- Treatments which are taught to relatives fall under two categories –
- Supportive treatments in addition to those given at the clinic
- Stand-alone treatments where the patient is unable to come to the clinic regularly.
Such disorders include
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Motor Neuron Disorders
- Major and minor thalessemias
- Mentally challenged children
- HIV/AIDS patients
- Autism, ADHD, Hyper active children
- Cancer patients
- Wilson's Disease
- Fanconi Syndrome etc
Needless to say that in all these diseases, patients experience an improved sense of well-being after Neurotherapy treatment, which is not always so with medicinal therapies.
