Healing burns psychologically, via telephone

Severe burn injuries leave behind scars -- not only
physical but in the victim's mind too
.

The Burn Eradication Project, which now hopes to begin operations in India, aims at reducing the fear of burns and the psychological after-effects by counselling people over telephone.

Marja Pronk, global coordinator of the Burn
Eradication Project on a recent visit to the capital, explained the
Distant Subliminal Neuro-Bypass (DSNB) technique that addresses the
psychological scars that often delay physical recovery as well."DSNB
is the power of the mind. It is an approach in which the unconscious
influence of the mind on burns is inhibited or enhanced to build
resistance against the burn injury
," Pronk, a doctor who started
project with a German consultancy, told IANS in an interview.


"Brain's unconscious overreaction to the extreme level of pain caused
by the burn causes blisters and scars," claimed Pronk.


"Everywhere in the world, there is fear associated with burns. Fire
injuries are considered to be the most dangerous by humans. But it is
not so," she added.


According to statistics by the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef)
around 750,000 deaths due to burns are reported annually worldwide.
Burn victims have a high mortality rate, but those with 40 to 70
percent burns can be cured with timely intervention.

The DSNB technique
employs both physical and neurotic aspects of burns to complement
orthodox ways of administering treatment. It takes a holistic
approach, exploring the interconnect that exists between mind and
body, and the mind's ability to affect bodily functions and
reactions.The Burn Eradication Project, now headquartered in the US,
has medical practitioners on board and has DSNB hotline numbers in
South Afria, Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania and several European countries as
well.The project has been a success in these places and over 200 burn
victims have recovered well after receiving DSNB treatment.


"The burn victim just needs to give us a call, and we take down the
details. It's then that we counsel and cure in sessions,
" Pronk told
IANS.If contact is made with DSNB technicians within 30 minutes of the
burn injury, they will immediately provoke a neuro-bypass that keeps
our brain from sending the wrong message to our defence and immune
systems...The recovery process of the body will be accelerated, the
project's website says.The project now hopes to launch in Sri Lanka
and India as well, said Pronk, who visited Pune and Delhi on her India
trip.


Testimonies from California in the US too vouch for the technique. For
two-year-old Michael's mother there, the hotline was nothing less than
a miracle.

"My son touched a hot wire rack from the overheated oven, I called the

number and within minutes of the conversation with DSNB staff on the
phone, the pain reduced," Michael's mother wrote in an e-mailed
response.

"The trick is to calm down the person, I think," she added.


Christina T., also from California, has a similar story to tell.


"My daughter was shrieking with pain and her hand was red and swelling

rapidly. After rinsing it with cool water, I contacted the DSNB

hotline number. After giving the specifics to doctors and counsellors,
the pain gradually reduced. After a few months, the scars were also
not there because of the therapy," Christina said via e-mail.

Indeed a welcome news  for burn victims.

Yes Suresh, one should be careful & fear for Fire and Law in general because you do not know which turn it will take & catchup with you & leave deep scar on you both physically and psychologically by Destroying your Life. Counseling will help in certain Genuine cases, where the cause is accidental, psychologically. Where as physically, it depends as you aware the degree & depth of Burnt skin.

Yes Mr. Suresh.  Even the antibiotics do the same.  They arrest the ache signal from the painful area to reach the mind.  We feel healing.  This is what telepathy also do, because it works on mind directly.
