Conservative surgery:   Besides perfect administration of poisons and radiation (invoking of energy by the process of activating the brain) Gikuyu seers have unique surgery performed at the sole of the foot. Three simple incisions performed consecutively at the sole of the foot stimulates the healing of an entirely different part of the body. In the first incision, the brain develops a positive charge to encounter the attack immediately it records the pain. In the second incision, the brain develops a similar charge immediately it records the second pain. In the third incision the brain develops a charge far too higher than the last two incisions. The three incisions are performed at particular areas in the nerve endings to activate the brain. The activated brain sends a high voltage charge through the nervous system to the whole body. If a defective cell or a foreign organism was encountered, it was destroyed not by the white cells, but by the brains high voltage. In a simple language, out of our ignorance of such healing process we term it miracle. Such a surgery portrays a very advanced wisdom on the nervous system.

Modern day’s evangelists and traditional medicine men guide their flocks through the process of charging their brains in order to get healed. The healing is left entirely to the subtlety of the individual mind. The healing through faith is not for all but for a few privileged in having a subtle mind to give their brain a command.

It should be remembered the Kisii traditional healers are known to drill the cranium in an open theatre under a tree to release the pressure in the brain. After the operation the patient was put under hard food i.e. roasted hard part of ugali (stiff porridge) and dry roasted maize. The healers say, on chewing such foods it creates shock therapy. In Westcar Papyrus, now kept in the vault in Berlin Museum, talks of Magician called Djedi (2800 BC), who could behead the body and fix the head back without the notice of the patient.

In today’s medical term Djedi is not a magician but a neurosurgeon.
