Bengaluru: India’s foremost naturopathy and yoga facility, Jindal Naturecure Institute, has launched virtual initiatives for the public, including webinars and yoga sessions online to promote good health practices and enable them to stay fit and healthy during the ongoing pandemic.
The webinar and yoga classes are offered free of cost to ensure that patients have access to essential medical advice when strict social distancing norms are enforced. Naturopathy consists of a series of non-invasive treatments, dietary changes, and lifestyle modifications. When combined with yoga practice, it helps prevent NCDs and lifestyle disorders, including diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few. The recommendations are designed to help patients keep their vital health parameters in the healthy range, and reduce their dependence on allopathic medication.
Co-morbidities due to NCDs have been one of the leading causes of mortality due to COVID-19, and the online consultations are designed to encourage patients to discuss their health issues with qualified naturopaths and get instant advice. Naturopathic solutions include dietary modification, herbal supplementation, and non-invasive detoxification therapies. Yoga asanas are also prescribed to complement the naturopathic treatments.
The first series of Yoga sessions were conducted successfully during the lockdown and met with an enthusiastic reception from the participants. Due to the high demand, the Institute has added evening sessions, which will go live from September 1. The webinars will be conducted every Saturday from 10 am to 10:30 am, and the yoga sessions are conducted every morning from 8 am to 8:30 am, and from September 1 every evening from 4 pm to 4:30 pm. People who are interested in the Yoga session can visit the Jindal Institutes Facebook Page. And Webinar Registration can be done through the Institutes Website – Visit the webinar section – https://jindalnaturecure.in/
“The pandemic and ensuring mobility restrictions have completely disrupted our fitness regimes. Social isolation has led to a spike in anxiety disorders, stress episodes, and panic attacks. The medical personnel shortage has also become more acute, and many patients with existing conditions like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease are finding it difficult to get disease management advice due to restrictions on general OPD services. The situation is unlike anything we have seen before and it is the duty of the medical fraternity to make sure that patients follow healthy lifestyles during these critical times. Our initiatives are aimed to help people adopt a healthier lifestyle. Our yoga modules are designed to provide more flexible indoor exercise options,” Dr. Rajeev Rajesh Chief Yoga Officer, Jindal Naturecure Institute.
Interested people can join the ongoing live sessions every morning from 8.00 am to 8.30 am by visiting Jindal Naturecure Institute’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/JindalNatureCure/ . And evening session 4.00 pm – 4.30 pm from September 1.
The sessions will cover simple Yoga poses under the guidance of a trained and qualified instructor. They are also a reliable starting point for beginners. Besides Yoga, one should also have a healthy diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Getting at least eight hours of sleep every night is essential for optimal immune function. Experts will also share immunity-boosting tips and answer queries on health problems.
