As a dedicated full-time doctor, my days are packed from 6 am to 8 pm. Beyond patient consultations, my responsibilities include team meetings, product and medicine supervision, and creating content about Ayurveda.
Despite my busy schedule, I make it a point to remain active on social media. Here’s why.
First and foremost, I believe that the choices we make in life should stem from awareness rather than ignorance. My ultimate goal, dream or vision is to bring global acceptance to Ayurveda. Some individuals write books, some deliver talks, and I create content – it’s as simple as that.
Consider this: There’s no money to be made if everyone enjoys good health. The real money lies in selling sickness. The medical, pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries – all thrive on this unfortunate reality!
The beauty of Ayurveda, unlike other medical systems, is that it not only talks about treating diseases, but also an equally bigger wing – prevention. And let me ask you this: Is there much money to be made from prevention? No, there isn’t.
That’s precisely why large corporate companies around the world conduct wellness programs and even have dedicated wellness departments that hold wellness talks and the like to raise awareness about prevention. Even if it looks like the act of engaging employees, the hidden agenda is also to help insurance premiums. It’s a great example – there’s no fortune in wellness, only in illness. Ayurveda, on the other hand, as a system of medicine, beautifully embodies the concept of prevention.
Coming back to the financial aspect of sickness, the modern pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries heavily rely on medical professionals and their practices. Trust me when I say that numerous pharmaceutical companies and diagnostic labs reach out to me, asking me to refer their lab tests and medicines for my patients. The perks offered can be quite enticing, with promises of international travel and more.
We have all been wired subconsciously by marketing strategies. For instance, let’s talk about the culture of blood tests. When you’re dealing with a specific health condition, it’s entirely ethical for a doctor to recommend relevant tests. These tests aid in accurate diagnosis and help plan the most suitable treatment. This is a standard practice and I do it too.
That’s doing blood tests for diagnosing diseases. That’s a thing.
But what about running blood tests to diagnose health itself? I’m not just talking about blood tests; I’m referring to DNA tests, food intolerance tests, food allergy tests and countless others. Even children as young as 3 or 4 years old undergo such tests – all in the name of diagnosing health. I understand that not everyone may agree with what I’m saying and that’s okay – that’s how marketing has deeply ingrained certain beliefs and preferences within our minds.
People love to be comfortable. We’re surrounded by every possible convenience to make our lives comfortable. People prefer to hear what makes them comfortable. They gravitate toward familiar narratives. But when someone presents ideas that challenge their preconceptions, they get uncomfortable. here is a lot of misinformation or programmed information around. I aim to bring your awareness by giving you the right information. Since what I share may differ from what you’re accustomed to hearing, it may make you uncomfortable. But that “uncomfortableness” if that’s even a word, will challenge you and make you think.
That’s why I exist for you – to offer knowledge about Ayurveda and health that is real, practical and authentic.
As I mentioned at the beginning, I firmly believe that the health choices we make should be based on awareness rather than ignorance.
And for that very reason, I am here for you!
