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. And ideally maintain a great health in the recent times is not an easy task to achieve. And as a working mom, I have loads to consider. Work to take care of, household chores to finish, family responsibilities and many more. And definitely my state of health keeps on going down the list. Certain lifestyle diseases have definitely become my companions down the way and depending on regular medication has been the only solution.

Fortunately, a few days back, I happened to come across Daivam Wellness Centre, a wellness unit situated in Gurgaon and I was introduced to an innovative way of treatment, as “functional medicine”. 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.

Let’s Make Our Kidneys Happy on This World Kidney Day

Amar Gandhi Foundation, launched“ek chammach kam”, a campaign to limit salt intake on this World Kidney Day, 8th March

17.2% URBAN INDIANS SUFFER FROM KIDNEY DISEASE: WKD 2018

Mumbai’s senior-most nephrologists have come together to show solidarity towards spreading awareness of the detrimental role of salt intake, in kidney disease.

Spearheaded by Dr. Bhupendra Gandhi’s Amar Gandhi Foundation (AGF), and supported by the Mumbai Kidney Foundation (MKF), over 150 nephrologists in the city have raised a clarion call, “ek chammach kam” (One spoon less), to highlight the high salt intake among Indian population.

Announcing the campaign, Dr. Bhupendra Gandhi, Trustee of the Amar Gandhi Foundation said, “Chronic kidney disease is a ‘SILENT KILLER’; it usually has no significant symptoms until it has reached later stages where a patient is not left with many choices of treatment.”

Interestingly, World Kidney Day overlaps with International Women’s Day, which calls into account the role of women in managing the proliferation of kidney disease.

Dr. Umesh Khanna, Senior Nephrologist & Chairman of Mumbai Kidney Foundation says, “Women in particular love eating ‘chatpata’ food, a craving that leads to excess salt consumption. They must observe and monitor the same, as well as ensure low salt consumption in their families.”

Dr. Bhavesh Vora, Senior Nephrologist & Treasurer, Amar Gandhi Foundation says, “People who are diabetic, hypertensive, obese or have a heart condition have a higher risk of kidney disease. In the light of all the eye opening facts stated hereby, spreading awareness about a regular checkup of kidney health for early detection of chronic kidney disease, is a must!”

The following data points were made available by the nephrologists, to mark World Kidney Day 2018

Ø Globally, the estimated prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease is 8-16% in adults over the age of 30 years as per World Health Organization.

Ø In India the prevalence is alarming at 17.2% in urban population as per a recent study published in the BMC Nephrology journal (The SEEK study by Dr Ajay Singh)

Ø 60% of the patients suffering from chronic kidney diseases in India are either diabetic or suffer from high blood pressure.

Ø Diabetes is a major risk factor for Chronic Kidney Disease. India has more than 69 million people with Type 2 Diabetes Melitus, and these numbers are expected to rise to 140 million by 2040 and an almost half of them remain undiagnosed. 30-40% patients with Diabetes mellitus may turn into a Chronic Kidney Disease patient.

Ø Obesity, another CKD risk factor, affects more than 135 million individuals in India. In Asian Indians, abdominal obesity has been recognised as an important risk factor for Diabetes and Heart Diseases.

Ø 139 million Indians have uncontrolled hypertension.14-22% patients with Hypertension may turn into a Chronic Kidney Disease patient.

The campaign ‘ek chammach kam’, will be run on the social pages of Mumbai Kidney Foundation and the Amar Gandhi Foundation.

The campaign aims to sensitise the population to take cognisance of the prevalence of kidney disease and make active lifestyle changes.

To mark the occasion, the AGF & MKF had organised a free blood test and urine test to detect early kidney disease on 8th March.

Let’s decrease our salt intake and increase our kidney’s survival one decade more.

Summers are in the mode of arrival and it’s once again time to devote special care to our diets. Drinking lots of water and keeping our little ones hydrated is definitely one thing every mom vouches to do every summer. However despite the special care and attention, kids tend to complain Of stomachaches and other related problems.

The seasonal change not only causes difficulties like cough and cold but brings about heavy indigestion, stomachaches and other associated issues.

It contains Hing Oil that is greatly efficient in reducing gas and let it pass away naturally thus clearing the indigestion. Apart from Hing oil, other oils that are present in the Tummy Roll are Peppermint oil, Ginger oil, fennel oil etc. The anti-colic characteristics of these oils assist in clearing gas and regularize the bowel movement. Stomachaches that are highly common in children and infants get easily cured with the joint effects of these multi-efficient oils.

Mostly all babies and children suffer from heartburn issues and problems in bowel movements. The Peppermint oil that this Tummy Roll on contains works miracles with its cooling effects. It not only heals the heartburns but also produces a soothing effect.

A Safer Alternative to Antibiotics

Stomach ailments are issues that often need immediate treatment and what we do as a reflex action is to take the kid to his/her pediatrician. Little do we think that in this course we subject him./her to the side-effects of a chain of antibiotics. Whereas this Tummy Roll on comes as a savior with natural healing ingredients as well as free from any sort of chemicals or drugs. Its credibility is further reinforced by being recommended by dermatologist and certified by MadeSafe.

One of the major difficulties that come along while you try to feed your kids medicines is their super attitude. ONE OF THE BEST ADVANTAGES OF The Easy Tummy Roll On is that you need not bear any tantrums of your kiddo while its application. You can just roll it on as he lies on the bed without any fear of irritation or vomiting as he/she must be usually doing for medicines.
