SWASTHYA RKSHANA KENDRA WITH INTEGRATED MOBILE APPLICATION TO PREVENT CANCER
Cancer is indeed creating a upheaval of catastrophies upon our public health scenario & astonishingly according to American cancer society around 16 million people are going to loose their lives because of the same. Henceforth it is indeed the need of the hour to put forth a strategy which encompasses the telecommunication technology and wisdom of ayurveda under one roof which is hereby put forward by the concept of Swasthya Raksha Kendras with an integrated mobile app.
The Swasthya raksha kendra will work as associate health institution whose framework will have three units:-Unit 1 will be referred to as Ahara nireekshana kendra in which all the individuals who download the app will feed their daily food habits and which would be evaluated and schedule of pathya ahara will also be made for them by qualified professionals specifically for individual after prakriti analysis. The Unit 2 will be referred to as Vihaara Nireekshana Kendra which will collect database regarding daily routines of individuals via the mobile app and thus specialised counselling for those who suffer from stress and depression and individual awareness would be provided regrading the possible hazards for present lifestyle. The unit will also give special emphasis on rasayana and wajeekarana specific doses of vatatapika rasayana to be provided after monitoring the health details of each individual obtained via the mobile app.
The use of Telecommunication can greatly help people bridge the gap between the health sector and public as it is hassle free and customised and people can choose the time of meetings according to their convenience and also helps to utilise the unused potential of ayurveda workforce.
As we know prevention is always better than cure henceforth by inculcating the knowledge of self awareness catapulted by technology can curb the disease to a great extent and can also help in early diaganosis of diseases thus making them curable. The efficacy of technology along with wisdom of ayurveda together can do wonders in preventing such a drastic disease from spreading & making a disease free future generation and indeed the whole world a better place to live in.
