Doctor claims cure for eye disease
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, October 12
Mr P.D. Gupta, an Ambala-based doctor, today claimed to have made a sensational discovery for the treatment of an eye disease due to thyroid.

Addressing mediapersons this afternoon, Dr Gupta said this disease usually occurs in women. In this disease eye balls are pushed out of the bony eye socket, leading to an ugly face with ‘stare’. It causes high risk from infection and injuries, including vision loss.

Dr Gupta, who remained patient of this disease, says he discovered the cure only through naturopathy. He says that the treatment he provides is anti-inflammatory and it is totally safe. This is non-medicinal method and nature’s force effect is absorbed. It is like absorbing the ‘moon rays’ in medicines and subsequent application to the body.

He says medicines containing ‘naturopathy effect’ are prepared for each part, stage and segment of the disease

He told mediapersons that he had already treated more than 20 patients. He gave names and address of eight patients along with their photographs to get confirmation from them about their treatment.
