Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a disorder related to movement, muscle tone or posture, and is caused by a defect in the brain. The origins of this disease in a particular individual can be traced back to the time before birth, and symptoms begin to appear during early childhood. Typical signs of cerebral palsy include impaired movement, excessive looseness or rigidity of the limbs, an abnormality in posture, poor hand eye coordination and limited movement in certain joints of the body.

Special therapeutic treatments have been developed to help children and adults who suffer from the disorder, and are usually administered by a team of skilled physicians, paediatricians, neurologists, speech therapists, occupation therapists and special education teachers. Certain medication can also help with the muscle movement.

Although medical treatments exist, cerebral palsy is a debilitating disease, and in general, children who suffer from it will require special care for most of their lives. However, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, one person has been treating patients with cerebral palsy using natural alternative medicine for a long time.

Dato' Master Tole and TheTole

Dato' Master Tole gives children treatment for cerebral palsy natural with Thetole, using techniques in alternative medicine and natural herbs. Although aspects of this inexact but effective science have been criticized by experts in modern medicine, alternative medicine has aggregated a large group of loyal patients and skilled practitioners around the world. Dato' Master Tole is one such practitioner.

Dato' Master Tole is a fourth generation Chinese physician and neuro-acupuncturist. He belongs to a family of physicians who have practiced their own recipes for herbal medicine for more than 145 years, and have treated generations of patients with deadly diseases such as cancer, hepatitis and epilepsy. Dato' Master Tole received his training at a very young age from his father and uncle, and in 1992, he set up TheTole to treat patients using natural remedies.

Treatment for Cerebral palsy natural with Thetole is administered by Dato' Master Tole after he has met with the patient. Depending on his judgement, he will draw out a plan consisting of a combination of Thetole’s neuro-acupuncture and herbal medicine. The insertion of needles into specific points on the body is meant to stimulate neural development in patients with cerebral palsy, and enhance the flow of ‘Qi’, or energy, through the body. It also helps in the alleviation of stress and regulates the body’s heat control and blood supply. According to Chinese medicine principles, any impedance in the Qi flow causes illness.

The herbal medicine is meant to act as a healing agent and Dato' Master Tole says:

“If patients have a phobia of needles, they can be treated with herbs alone but it depends on the problem. For example, for stroke and cerebral palsy, I have to use needles.”

The treatment normally takes 6 to 12 months, and patients have to come back to TheTole for acupuncture sessions with Dato' Master Tole. Over the years, Dato' Master Tole has treated numerous patients with cerebral palsy at TheTole, and has garnered a reputation for himself. It is his long history of success, which brings people to TheTole from all over the world, seeking his treatment.
