The objective of the programme is to create awareness of the rising cases of chronic diseases among Indians due to their lifestyle choices and to bring to light how the use of alternate and traditional healing methods will enable them to recover.
The first leg of the initiative will commence today and continue until September 20, 2022, on the recently launched health app Aayu. This is a part of the recently launched nationwide movement called ‘Disease-Free India’ – ‘Rog Mukt Bharat’.
The programme aims to impact over five million people within five years. The initiative will be digitally hosted on the Aayu app and will effectively provide users with personalised wellness solutions and offer free doctor consultations based on an individual’s personal history. It will continue to monitor the individuals’ progress, enabling them to accelerate their healing and recovery.
Additionally, as part of the ‘Swastha Shakti Program’ initiative, people will be provided with access to free health check-ups and digital consultations for yoga, Ayurveda, naturopathy, and meditation, among other holistic fitness solutions, provided by S-VYASA experts. The aim of the initiative will address the root causes and cure of common diseases like diabetes, hypertension, PCOS, and others, through yoga, nutrition, and mindfulness, enabling people to lead a disease-free and healthy life.
Dr Mickey Mehta, leading global holistic health guru, said, “India is going through a health crisis due to the unhealthy lifestyle choices and the rise in chronic diseases caused by an unhealthy lifestyle. I am glad to be a part of the Swastha Shakti Programme and support the Disease Free India movement in any way I can. It is high time this got some attention and I am hoping this movement will bring about the change. “
Karan Talreja, Founder & MD, Reset TECH, said, “We are glad to introduce the Swastha Shakti Programme in collaboration with S-VYASA on this International Day of Yoga. India is at the brink of a health crisis and hence we initiated this movement with the aim of making Indians healthier through authentic and science-based yoga. We hope to spread awareness among people and hope they come forward to derive the benefits and cure and heal themselves.”
Dr HR Nagendra, Chancellor, S-VYASA The Deemed to be University said, ” The programme encourages people to adopt yoga, meditation, and other forms of traditional treatment to tackle a wide range of chronic diseases, which have been affecting the health of millions of Indians for the past few decades. This International Day of Yoga marks the beginning of this remarkable programme which will offer holistic wellbeing activities and masterclasses from experts as part of this initiative.”
