Being a priest and a firm believer in God, I believe that RDT’s Dr. Kumaraiah was a divine intervention to my rescue; otherwise I would have never regained my original state of mind. Working as a temple priest in Ramagiri Mandal, Ananthapuram, I was earning Rs 1,600 per month and some loose change. This meagre amount wasn’t enough to support my family therefore I took up tailoring as a secondary profession.
Slowly, I started experiencing an abnormal noise in my ears. An ENT doctor in Ananthapuram prescribed some medicines, drops and injections but I wasn’t relieved. I also consulted some reputed doctors in Kurnool and Bangalore but all my efforts went in vain. The continuous medicine intake caused stomach irritation and face swelling besides loss of hearing and anxiety. I was depressed having spent so much for my treatment and people known to me started thinking that I’ve gone mad when I discussed about the roaring noise in my ears.
One day, I shared my problem with Dr. Kumaraiah, Medical Officer at the RDT Rural Health Clinic who practices both homoeopathy and acupuncture; and he promised me a permanent cure. Initially I was a bit hesitant but eventually agreed after some counselling by him. After just four rounds of acupuncture treatment, I got the kind of relief I had never imagined. Along with the therapy, I was also receiving homoeopathic medicines that were providing further relief. Now I can hear perfectly and my social interaction has also improved greatly. Thanks to RDT and alternate system of medicines that have kept my hopes alive.
