Golaghat, Oct. 8: Po’ritran, an NGO, working with an aim to eradicate cancer from the region with the help of natural treatments and alternative therapies, is planning to open the first detox centre in the region, according to the NGO’s president, Dilip Kumar Goswami. He said the removal of internal toxins and metabolic waste material, all of which build up in the body over time, is the key concept to restoring health from any disease, and a cornerstone of alternative treatment centres.
The clinic will be opened at Rajabari in Bokaghat sub-division of Golaghat district, with an estimated budget of Rs 75 lakh. OIL has contributed 6.75 lakh for the project, though the NGO is yet to arrange for a major part of the total fund.
“Po’ritran, with intellectuals Homen Borgohain and Dhirendranath Chakravorty as its advisers, was set up in January 2011 and since has been holding awareness programmes to educate people about the prevention of cancer,” Goswami said.
On March 16 this year, an office-cum-treatment centre of Po’ritran was inaugurated at Rojabari, Bokaghat by Homen Borgohain. The centre has been continuously providing alternative ways of treating cancer, which are much affordable and effective at the same time.
“We have so far treated 162 patients from different parts of the region, out of which seven patients have been declared cancer free”, Goswami said.
Goswami said the number of patients approaching them for advice have also increased manifold.
