Tradition of Phytomedicine by OPTM
OPTM Health Care (P) Ltd & AG herbs, two complimentary companies, under one roof, was founded by Apurba Ganguly, who invented the 'AG Electro Pulse Therapy' for Pain Management, and started treating patients from his own clinic named 'Krish Pain Treatment & Research Centre' (in Kolkata, West Bengal, India), This was in 1991, Apurba Ganguly in addition to treating patients at his own clinic, travelled widely in all major cities of India and also a few different places abroad to treat patients. The therapy soon became popular and in February 1994, in a press conference in the presence of press personnel, eminent Doctors/ Principals of Medical Colleges, Senior Orthopaedic Surgeons, Apurba Ganguly briefed the Principle of this Therapy and administered free treatment to establish the effectiveness of the treatment.
In the clinic, with the help of theories of chemical, mechanical, thermal and electrical stimuli - the muscle strength and blood circulation of different organs are enhanced. For the chemical stimulation, the phytochemicals are extracted from medicinal plants (as mentioned before) as "water extraction" and then mixed with oils at 4°C without using any preservatives or chemicals, so that the phytochemicals properties of the plants are preserved intact. This entire process is executed on seasonal basis when the phytochemicals components are present in the particular plants at optimal level, as because all the plants do not have medical values throughout, i.e; composition of phytochemicals do not remain in the plants throughout the year, it has specific, time, age, season and environment. The paste of two oils and cream in equal ratio is to be applied on skin from upper part of the back region to down to the toes, with a patient lying on prone position as well as from the groin to toes lying in supine position with circular motion with the help of tip of three fingers - as a result the necessary phytochemicals of the paste can easily penetrate through the enlarged pores of the skin by diffusion process and travel to various tissues, glands and organs of the body and reach up to the bone levels. Again with the help of extrothermic exergonic reactions (a type of chemical reaction), architecture and the metabolic processes of contraction of the muscle is achieved by phytochemicals - subject to tetanus (occurs when a motor unit has been maximally stimulated by its motor neuron.) of muscles. Therefore, immediately after contraction is released, the blood flow increases considerably and oxygen supply is greater than in the resting condition of muscle, because muscle converts chemical energy into mechanical energy.
