CMD technology in Dhaka
Wouldn't it be great if you could have early detection of illnesses? It surely would be, because if an illness is diagnosed in its early stages, then your chances of getting completely cured from it increase significantly. Sadly, with the technology that we had till now, many illnesses have been diagnosed only after reaching a very advanced stage, and so chances of getting completely cured from the illness were greatly diminished.
Nowadays, due to the availability of a technology known as CMD (Computer Meridian Diagnostics), you can detect illnesses before symptoms appear. If your CMD report suggests that you will come down with an illness soon, then you can start treatment in its early stages and therefore improve the probability of making a complete recovery.
CMD combines ancient Chinese medical knowledge with advanced computer technology. It was developed by the Russian Space Agency at a cost of several hundred million dollars over a period of 35 years. Basically, they developed this technology to thoroughly assess the health condition of their intending cosmonauts. As a journey to space is very demanding on health, only those candidates who had outstanding CMD reports were selected as cosmonauts.
The Russians first used CMD in 1984 while carrying out work for the Mir space project. Although they used it way back in 1984, it was only in the year 2001 that they released the technology worldwide. In this short time span, it has become immensely popular in many countries of the world. CMD is also available in Bangladesh. It was launched in this country on 18 December 2003.
A CMD test can be done within the matter of a few minutes. CMD works by measuring the body's energy systems. These measurements are taken through a special easy-to-use CMD sensor. The readings are then sent via the internet to the central CMD server in Germany and are then compared with data obtained from people of the same age, gender etc. An evaluation report is prepared within a mere 20 seconds. The evaluation report shows in full colour graphics and easy-to-follow text, the state of a person's health. If energy readings are out of the normal range, CMD will suggest simple and proven self-therapy measures.
As mentioned earlier, CMD is available in Bangladesh and a test will cost you Tk 1,250. Presently, in Dhaka it is available at five places and they are:
· Inno Health Check-up, Purana Palton, Phone # 7162620
· Uni Health Check-up and Therapy Center, Uttara, Phone # 8958977
· University Campus Health Service, Topkhana Road, Phone # 9560225
· Rifat's Dental, CMD & Prognos Clinic, New Elephant Road, Phone # 8650988
· Criti Care CMD Clinic, Green Road, Phone # 0189241502
Already, many Bangladeshis have greatly benefited by availing a CMD test, as they have managed to take precautionary measures against certain diseases after their CMD reports advised them to do so. If you would like to carry out a thorough check-up of your present health condition, then you too can do a CMD test by contacting any of the above-mentioned CMD test centres.
