In my practice as a Doctor, or even as an Author and Speaker, I notice that somehow my focus is towards the Preventive therapy, rather than Curative therapy. And this I believe precisely is the need of the times ! 

Give it a thought, that if you could gain as well as maintain your Natural well being simply by means of adapting the right diet and lifestyle ; you could save yourself both from distressing ailments as well as unnecessary medicines !

Ayurveda Holistic Wisdom
This is exactly what our ancient Indian holistic wisdom of Ayurveda is here to offer. There are two key features that attribute to the entire Science of Ayurveda :
Swasthavritam or the Natural Lifestyle Modification
This is the prophylactic approach to Natural wellness in Ayurveda philosophy, which is manifested primarily with maintaining as well as sustaining holistic wellness.

In particular this is regarded as most imperative and desirable in Ayuveda discipline.


Aaturvritam or the Curative Aspect of Ayurveda Therapy 
Ayurveda being a therapeutic discipline, has full potential to help a patient overcome the ailment from which he is suffering, exclusively using Natural means of healing.
Curing of the disease in Ayurveda has always been considered as secondary to harboring of Natural wellness.
Holistic Healing
Although being an Ayurveda doctor, as I entered the realm of Holistic healing, I could develop the understanding that Healing of body and mind, develops by and large on the magnitude of developing positive vibrations of Spiritual healing.
I believe and have conveyed this in my interview that “Writing on the niche’ of Spiritual Healing has just come to me un-intentionally, and somehow now I realize that holistic wellness can only be achieved when the parameters of all three – Mind, Body and Soul are nourished with complete awareness.”
Lifestyle Ailments can Only be relieved by Lifestyle Correction !
Lifestyle ailments like Diabetes, Obesity, Hypertension, Heart disease, Stress etc that are common today as well as highly crucial to deal with cannot be escaped easily without developing conscious detachment both with the predicament as well as its source. For example. losing weight becomes much easier when you have developed internal strength towards refraining from the sweets and fatty foods, than becoming slave to taste-buds.
As per my personal experiences total health is only possible through the element of Meditation. I have mentioned the same in my article – ‘Being Aware is being Alive’,
“Let me tell you about my own experience. I lost weight by a simple process of awareness which I brought about into my diet and lifestyle. Nothing else worked so well! And it has been a valuable lesson for me to share. Introspecting on the subject of cultivating awareness, I can state that increase in consciousness and awareness result in focus on the present.”
