Children with birth defects are treated by doctors at the privately funded Baba Farid Centre in Faridkot. The doctors apply pressure to their legs using their own weight. An increasing and ignored percentage of children are being born suffering the side effects of industrial pollution. The Baba Farid Centre was set up by Dr Pritpal Singh and is staffed on a volunteer basis by his network of similarly concerned fellow junior doctors and specialists. It treats its patients with a mixture of homeopathic, ayurvedic and acupuncture methods.
