At present, some
experts in Novosibirsk are using a paradoxical
method. We are going to discuss the essence of it
here. Caution: This method does not suit everybody,
who has suffered from delirium tremens, or has
really gotten hooked on drugs.
To begin with, let us abstract
ourselves from serious dependences, and have a talk
about curing people of other diseases. Sergei
SPERANSKY, PhD (Biology) tried the method of
“flogging therapy” on his own. The first series
helped getting rid of depression, when he had to
practice self-flagellation. Life made him make the
second try – though, not life exactly, but craving
for living. It was right after his second infarction.
Sergei Vladimirovich had his second series of a
The mechanics is as follows: his buttocks were
flogged once a week with withes. He was taken 30
blows in full strength, then – had a break, having
tea with his “torturer”, then – 30 blows more. The
next series of blows comes in a week, when the
blue-yellow-black bruises have disappeared yet.
Believe it or not, but according to Speransky, in
four months his cardiogram showed no deviations, and
the scars on his heart completely resolved.
Conventional pharmacology has certainly happened to
be, but according to the researcher, it would never
be so much effective.
According to the explanations given by Sergei
Speransky, flogging therapy acts as an impetus to
immunity, and for the white blood cells it doesn’t
matter what to resolve whether these are bruises on
the buttocks, or the scars on the heart.
The researcher told us that one of the folk healers
he knows used that method for treating a patient,
who was paralyzed after the stroke. After the eighth
procedure, his ability to speak and to move came
back to him. He even got a job!
All those, who so desire to flog their neighbors,
should make a note of the following for themselves:
a patient is free to choose this method of healing
himself. The above method does not work as a way of
“educating and punishment” either.
By the way, the monks, who practiced
self-flagellation, often went blind. But they
flagellated themselves whatever came to mind,
without any “appetite”.
An alternative to the wine
Senior researcher of one of the
Novosibirsk research institutes Marina CHUKHROVA,
PhD (Med), treats drunkards and drug-addicts
with the method of measured algetic exposure
within the limits of body-oriented psychotherapy.
Actually, it’s what we’ve just spoken about, i.e.
flogging, but with the psycho-internist present
at all the procedures, and the narcologist –
present at the initial procedure in order to
According to Dr. Chukhrova, the results are
outstanding, as they have witnessed a 100%
success. But it’s too early to be happy that
remedy for all incurable diseases and ills has
been at last found. Nobody speaks about the
widespread application of that method. From all
the aspirants to healing from their vices by the
method of flogging, Marina Chukhrova selected
only ten patients, and all of them have had
stable remission. At present, all those patients
are completely socialized; they’re working and
having no problems in their families. Though,
they sometimes come to visit a doctor to be “charged”.
But ten people cannot be considered as a reason
of expressing unflagging optimism, as the method
is far from being suitable to all.
“That method cannot enjoy wide application at
all,” - Marina Chukhrova says. “Here one-off
approach is possible only. The second education
of the psycho-internist, we’re cooperating with,
is manual therapy. Before he starts applying the
method of algetic exposure to a patient, he
considerably examines the patient, revealing
tender points on patient’s body, his pain
threshold, and his reaction to pain.
It’s noteworthy, that humankind has known about
the level of reflexes in the buttocks zone for
ages. But when I asked if a person could try
treating his neighbor in home conditions, the
answer was unambiguously negative.
By the way, Marina Chukhrova does not like the
term “flogging therapy”, and tries to be remote
from the ideas of Speransky.
“Even though I do respect Speransky as a scholar
very much, our purposes and approaches differ, -
she says. “If Speransky is closer to psychics,
we specialize in medical science.”
