RAJOURI: Highlighting the fact that the body, mind and spirit are interconnected and health of these elements influence each other, Dr Sushil Sharma, HoD Cardiology GMC and SSH Jammu, conducted a day-long health awareness camp on the occasion of Sri Bhagwad Katha, a conscientious endeavour by Raj Guru Mahamandleshwar Swami Vishwatamanand Maharaj to share the rich resource of knowledge in the divine plays of Bhagwan Krishna for the common populace of Rajouri Town.
The health awareness camp was started with the formal inauguration by Swami Vishwatamanand Maharaj amidst invoking of Vedic hymns with the prayer that the people shall find hope, comfort and inner well being in their life.
While interacting with the people, Dr Sushil stated that there is a wide array of knowledge that supports the view that there is positive connection between one’s belief and sense of well being.
“Many people find spirituality through different ways. Some people find it through music or meditation, yoga or a connection with nature. Others find it in their values and principles while still majority find it in their religion,” he added.
“There is a clear understanding upon this fact that spirituality affects one’s feeling and thought regarding his/ her medical condition. If someone thinks that his spiritual beliefs are affecting his health care decisions he must share this fact with his doctor for it has been observed sometimes that spiritual beliefs are preventing some people from following the recommendations of the doctor. So it is necessary that physicians should be aware of the spiritual, religious and cultural beliefs of patients and their families,” Dr. Sushil emphasised.
More than 800 patients were screened, evaluated and diagnosed for various health ailments. Blood sugar, ECG, BMD, BMI, KFT Tests were performed and medicines were also given as per the requirements.
Others who were instrumental in this endeavour include Dr Shailendra Sharma, Dr Poonam Jagiasi, Dr Kewal Sharma, Dr. Irfan Malik, Dr. R.K Bajaj, Dr. Nymphaea, Dr. Sourav Gupta and Dr Rajiv Jindal.
