But, successful drug-free CURE of Pain in her Wrists, Elbows, Shoulders, Knees and the Spine due to cumulative injuries with Holistic Medicine therapy enabled her to once again return to the active sport to do ‘Better-than-Ever-Before’.
  • In her come back, she performed much better than ever before and went on to add medals to her tally at Asian, Commonwealth and World Weight-Lifting Championships, received the coveted ARJUNA AWARD, and got a lucrative job transforming her life. Her appetite for more led her to pick up the sport of Pistol Shooting at an age when others had already retired. She added several more medals to her bag of glory.
  • She continues to serve the cause of Sports at national level in many capacities. Today, she is a National Coach in both the games, an international referee, and a member of ‘Khelo India’ talent search committee.

“I had cumulative injuries, due to years of my sport of weight-lifting, causing Chronic PAIN in my Knees, Wrists, Elbows, Shoulders and the Spine. I had retired from my sport and had qualified to be a Coach from National Institute of Sports. As the best of physiotherapy and treatment by Sports Medicine specialists didn’t help me much, I was guided to Dr. R. K. Tuli. With drug-free Holistic Medicine therapy at his clinic “SOHAM”, I fully recovered from all my aches and pains, and I started feeling so much Healthy and Happy that I sought Dr. Tuli’s permission to resume active training. To my sheer delight I found that I was doing much better than ever before! I went
on to add many more medals to my tally at the Asian, Commonwealth and World Championships. All these achievements got me the prestigious ARJUNA AWARD from the Rashtrapati, and I had my fortune smiling to get the job of an Assistant Commandant in Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). I further took to the sport of Target Shooting and won national and international laurels in that too. After more than two and a half decades, I still feel Healthy & Young and serve as ‘Khelo India’ member. I wish all sports persons take Dr. Tuli’s help and bring glory to the nation with his unique therapy.”
“I also know the story of another Commonwealth Games bound Weightlifter Sivaramakrishnan who was carrying an incurable Elbow Injury with him and would have returned ‘retired hurt’. I escorted him to Dr. Tuli, and with his magical therapy over three days, just before departure of the team, enabled him full recovery and return with Three Silver Medals for India.
