Introduce Your Health to Functional Medicine in the “Daivam Way”

Wellness is an intrinsic part of our identity and keeping well defines not only the state of your health but also gauges the mental state.

Well, the nomenclature might seem to be a completely different area for common men like us who has believed in ages on the power of allopathic medicine.

For people who are unaware of what exactly functional medicine takes care of, well, this area relies more on the “why” of medicine rather than “what”. The Daivam practice of wellness is rooted in the fact of reaching out to the very source of diseases and treating it accordingly in sync with the effects caused by it. In simpler terms, Daivam believes that each and every string of our body is interdependent on each other and for the smooth flow of this scientific orchestration, it is important to treat the disease right from the cause rather than the effect. Unlike allopath, Daivam believes that when you are undergoing any sort of physical problem or an irregular state of health, then there might be certain mental factors too that might be influencing the same. Thus it offers a comprehensive caretaking treatment for both the symptoms and the results caused by the same.

The Holistic Way of Treatment is thus the Daivam Way.

5 Real Life Lessons That Made In Heaven Makes Us Contemplate on

Amazon Prime has been grabbing all the attention now when it comes to the New Gen Indian audience. While at one point, Indian viewers had no other alternatives rather than to rely on Netflix for some great original content, Amazon Prime has gradually grabbed all the limelight. With some successful series of lined up contents like Breathless, Mirzapur, Four More Shots etc. the Indian section of audience, not relying on the Saas Bahu daily soaps has finally achieved something truly satisfying their modern appetites for entertainment. And recently out of this Entertainment Pandora’s Box, released one of the most anticipated series by Zoya Akhtar “Made in Heaven”.

The “Gully Boy” fame director has been winning all the applause for her incredible direction in various films and “Made in Heaven” definitely adds a feather to her success crown. While most of the audience has accepted this recently released web series with a broad outlook considering how it mirrors the real turbulences in marriages, many of them have also criticised it for its explicit & wild depiction of sex, use of raunchy dialogues and definitely unusually abusive vocabulary. However for me, ‘Made in Heaven’ stands out to be another realistic sketches by Zoya Akhtar of the so-called polished and successful marriages that seem to be made in heaven but are actually grounded on harsh human reality.
The story has a setting of South Delhi where Tara and Karan are running a successful wedding planning organization, “Made In Heaven”. Karan belongs to an ordinary middle-class family while Tara Khanna is married to one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, Mr. Adil Khanna. However, both of them are trying to invest on their own dreams and curate a successful business with their venture of Made in Heaven. This 9 episode web series deals with several subplots with the main plot of Tara, Karan, Adil and Faiza{ Tara’s best friend and Adil’s secret extra-marital alliance} running parallel with full force.
The best part of this entire web series is how beautifully Zoya Akhtar pronounces the nuances of the apparently perfect marriages that are established in the urban strata of the South Delhi society. Every episode deals with a particular negative tone that are usually present in all the metropolitan based weddings, but take a backseat amidst the glitz, glamour and wealth spent on the ceremony.
Elaborating much on the plot might deviate you from the main subject. For me, “Made in Heaven” is more than an ordinary web series as helps you to contemplate on several issues in real life. I would love to take this as a story that leaves you behind with a number of lessons to consider.

Karma Never Lets Anyone Escape

The foremost and perhaps the most important lesson that Zoya wants to portray is how Karma takes its course. Whoever you are, whatever you might have achieved in life, Karma won’t let you go from its vicious circle. So when Tara’s husband cheats upon her, we cannot let go off the fact that how Tara had earlier seduced Adil into a marriage by breaking his prospective engagement. Similarly Karan gets back his results of embarrassing his gay partner Nawab years later when he himself gets arrested for his homosexual relationships and atrociously abashed by the public, media and surely the police. The bottom line remains nobody gets exempted from Karma’s rules.

Your Soulmate Might Not Necessarily Be Your Romancing Partner

While we always tend to identify our husband or wife as our real soulmate, sometimes true friendship might lie outside romance, as portrayed by the beautiful equation shared by Tara and Karan. While they are business partners, professionally involved in “Made in Heaven”, simultaneously they stand out to be each other’s’ soulmates without pronouncing the strong bonding shared between them explicitly. Karan rushes to Tara’s help when her husband Adil meets with an accident and his extra-marital involvement gets revealed and Tara hurries to Karan’s assistance when he gets arrested. In fact, these two have remained together through every thick and thin. Their chemistry is not limited to the fine barriers of a love relationship or just a professional alliance. They count on each other blindly for every sort of support, financially, psychologically or even physically. The mere presence of each other for each other validates their solid chemistry.

Never Forget Your Roots

Zoya Akhtar maintains the fine art of subtlety while addressing some of the major realities of life. Taara might be married to one of the best blue-blooded families in Delhi and initially she gets lost in the polished tones of the urban society where she wins all the fame and success with her husband’s wealth but unfortunately there isn’t any happiness. However as the series moves on, Taara’s lost happiness is discovered in the teenage lanes of Purani Dilli where she used to enjoy her delicious, unhygienic golgappas, get herself groomed in the grooming classes and finally her sister’s home where there might be little wealth but there is never-ending happiness in the petty things of life.

Never Be Guilty of Your Identity

This might seem to be quite an unrealistic lesson but the truth lies in the fact that that if you do not respect your choices, nobody will. Karan could have easily surrendered to the injustice and unethical invasion of privacy by his landlord. However he returned to the same house abiding by the terms of the legal agreement and confronted the situation with complete honesty. He had realised the intensity of the mistake he had committed in his childhood. He accepted that he was a gay not only in front of his family and the entire media but also started spreading the word about gay rights among his fellow listeners. Had he obliged to the wrong that the society has done to him, the same conditions would have followed that happened with his landlord.

Nothing is Above and Beyond Wealth

One of the best ways of Zoya Akhtar’s attack against this shallow society is the fine art of irony she executes throughout. While Taara’s husband claims to love her blindly{which definitely isn’t true considering the kind of extra-marital relationship he shares}, he remains extremely professional and materialistic when it comes to the monetary profits and loss ratios of “Made in Heaven” where he had invested. You might call it core professionalism, but at the same time, it’s quite hard to accept a man who wildly makes love to his wife at night, puzzling her the next morning with his series of questionnaires regarding “Made in Heaven’s performance charts.
Apart from these lessons, every episode is an endeavor of Zoya to chart out the vicissitudes of Indian marriage where there is glitz and glamour along with unending chains of hypocrisy and greed. There resides a fine juxtaposition of contradictory traits throughout every episode. Where there is love, there is greed, where there is trust, there’s betrayal and the chain goes on. While Made in Heaven remains to be one of our best web series, we are eagerly waiting for the genius Akhtar to bring on the sequel to the masterpiece soon.

It seems Delhi has finally hit the summers. Welcome to the season of tanning and sweating incessantly with your skin becoming a victim to the scorching heat. Whatever precaution we may take, whatever sunscreen we may adopt in our beauty routine,  maintaining a healthy glow on the skin during summers seem quite a challenge. Gradually it begins to lose the shine and lustre that is usually present during the other seasons. Thankfully with my recent visit to the Skeyndor Studio, I could finally locate a solution.

Before I discuss how Skeyndor can be the perfect friend for addressing your skin’s problems and offer a detailed Skeyndor treatment review,  it’s important to discuss the essential reasons behind your skin losing its lustre. While the harsh temperatures and the drastic changes in climate are essentially the reasons that contribute to your skin’s dull texture, the growing pollution and constant exposure to the sun are some of the added factors that are also responsible for the same. These might seem to be the most common reasons however the main reason lies to be malnutrition of the skin. As conveyed by cosmetologist, Priya Bhandari, the lack of lustre in skin is primarily because of the deficiency of Vitamin C in the skin. Vitamin C plays a dominant role in giving your skin an inherent glow.

skeyndor treatment..

With a detailed expertise outlook on the importance of Vitamin C and how Skeyndor products and treatments are oriented to replenish the skin with its baby origin glow by Ms. Priya Bhandari, I went for the Power C+ Treatment. The most important part of this treatment is that it involves a direct penetration of real Vitamin C into your skin that boosts up your skin’s glow distinctively.

Duration of the Skeyndor Power C Treatment

The treatment took me about 45-50 minutes however it was so soothing and rejuvenating, I didn’t even realise when I dozed off to sleep. Short and precise, it consisted of 5 essential steps that were not as elaborate as a facial involves but definitely far more relaxing than the former.

The first step involved a gradual removal of the make up I was wearing.

skeyndor review

It was then followed by a series of steps that involved the aloevera mask, application of an energizing cream that contains SPF 15, penetration of the Pure C concentrate into the skin and application of the Pomegranate concentrate on the skin.

The Power C line treatment introduced by Skeyndor is mainly focussed to give your skin an instant polished shine. However it depends definitely on the therapist on how deeply she penetrates the Vitamin C concentrate and the Pomegranate concentrate. Since the major objective is to give the skin its former shine with Vitamin C, the penetration requires a thorough and rigorous massaging session.

One thing that keeps on  bothering your mind is the quality of products to be used at your session and I was no exception. Since I had opted for the Deep scrubbing treatment during the dry winters, I was indeed skeptical how fruitful the session would turn out to be in regards to moisturizing my skin. However the premium pure quality of the products used as the scrubbing blend ensured deep moisturization along with effective scrubbing.
