Talk - Emerging Health Problems and their Solutions. Panchakarma and its Role in Maintaining Good Health.
Speaker: Dr. Parmeshwar Arora, Chief Physician - Ayurvedic Clinic & Panchkarma Centre, Gurgaon and Consultant, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi.
Second in a new series of lectures being co-ordinated by Dr. Raman Kapur. The changing lifestyle of Indians has reduced the physical activities of people, particularly in urban India leading to rapid onset of many diseases. With modernization, a large proportion of Indians are trading healthy traditional diets for fatty foods, physical jobs for desk bound sloth, the relative calm of the countryside for the stressful city. Heart-attack victims are just the first wave of a swelling population of Indians with heart problems and 80 per cent of global cardiovascular diseases related deaths now occur in low and middle-income nations, which cover most countries in Asia . What can be done to reverse this trend and how can we live long healthy life will be discussed.
