REASI: Emphasising the need to understand the dynamics of cardiovascular diseases vis a vis its mitigation through spiritual healing, Dr Sushil Sharma, HoD Cardiology Super Specialty Hospital, Jammu, on Sunday conducted a day-long camp at Pouni, Reasi.
The camp was inaugurated by Saint Balak Yogeshwar Maharaj along with Dr Sushil and Dr R.P Singh (BMO) Pouni in presence of various disciples who gathered at culmination ceremony of Ati Vishnu Maha Yagya.
During the course of health checkup camp, he said that despite numerous advances in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality across the world.
“Novel and inexpensive interventions that can contribute to the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease are of wider interest. Numerous studies have reported on the benefits of meditation and prayers. Meditation instruction and practice is widely accessible and inexpensive and may thus be a potential attractive cost?effective adjunct to more traditional medical therapies. Besides primary prevention of CVD risks factors in population through meditation, it also has the potential to mitigate the medical illness at later stage by way of a commonly occurring phenomenon known as religious coping,” he added.
“Taking cue from the recent studies in this direction he informed that several neurophysiological and neuroanatomical studies demonstrate that meditation can have long?standing effects on the brain, which provide some biological plausibility for beneficial consequences on the physiological basal state and on cardiovascular risk. Studies of the effects of meditation on cardiovascular risk have suggested to control stress, smoking cessation, blood pressure reduction, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, endothelial function, inducible myocardial ischemia, and primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. To sum up, studies of meditation suggest a possible benefit on cardiovascular risk, although the overall quality and, in some cases, quantity of study data are modest. However, further research in this area may unfold new correlations and associations with overall health status of an individual,” Dr Sushil said.
More than 600 patients were attended and advised during the camp. ECG, Blood Sugar, BMI etc. were also conducted and medicines were given as per the requirement.
Saint Shri Balak Yogeshwar blessed and appreciated Dr Sushil and his team for their tireless efforts in organising mega health check up in such far flung area. He informed the gathering that by practising meditation one can inculcate the noble value of compassion and empathy, which ensures not taking care of one’s own health but also that of others.
Others who were part of this day long camp include Dr Rashpal Singh (BMO) Pouni, Dr Sameer Mahajan, Dr Neeraj Koul and Dr Umesh Sharma. Paramedics and volunteers includes Vivak M Arya, Jagjit Singh, Davinder Singh (Pintoo), Raghav Rajput, Akshay Kumar, Rohit Chalotra, Rajinder Singh, Rajkumar and various disciples of the Saint Balak Yogeshwar Maharaj were also rendered their services.
