Sindhia emphasises on reframing State's health policy

Former minister P G R Sindhia, on Sunday, stressed on reframing the State’s health policy that would help improve antibodies rather than treat diseases.

Speaking at the release of ‘Mudra Vignana’, authored by D V S Iyer, under the aegis of Vaidya Vartha Prakashana at The Institution of Engineers India (IEI), Mysore chapter, Sindhia said, there are methods to treat a person suffering from diseases, but there are no better ways to prevent the ailments. It calls for creating awareness among the masses by making judicious use of available resources.

Traditional medicines

Delineating on traditional medicines that have their roots in the good old days, Sindhia lamented that barring Kerala that has taken equal care in promoting desi medicine, the rest of modern India has failed to capitalise on the same.  

China, though overcrowded, racing ahead of India in population, has taken measures to conserve traditional medicines.

The change in lifestyle is taking a toll on children’s health.

They too are becoming victims of stress. It is corelated with food style with children opting for junk food. Yoga, acupressure and mudras are the ways to find remedies for the same.

Yoga centre

MLC C H Vijayashankar, who released the book, recounted how the continuos onslaught on Indian culture since thousands of years, has left mankind in a helpless situation.

Indians are forced to embrace Western lifestyle and rural life is under threat. Though Mysore is ranked fourth in Yoga in the world, the city still lacks a Yoga Center. The city badly needs one, he added.

Former MLC Thontadarya released the English version of the book.
