India is celebrating 74th republic day this year. With adopting and implementing concrete laws and constitutions, India is growing very significantly.
In the case of the health sector, we have to deeply rethink the constitution related to healthcare systems especially post pandemic. The pandemic has exposed the deep vulnerabilities of India’s healthcare system.
Right to Health is a part and parcel of Right to Life and therefore right to health is a fundamental right guaranteed to every citizen, but India’s low expenditure on public health is creating big loopholes in healthcare systems. Also, the Right to health is concerned with various factors such as housing, food, water, sanitation, and environment.
As per articulated in the 1946 Constitution of the World Health Organization (WHO), whose preamble defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The preamble further states that the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without any discrimination. But we are struggling with many co factors which indirectly affect the healthcare system badly.
We can redesign the health constitution 2023 in such a way that it will reduce burden on curative care. As we know, every constitution has some fundamental values on which it is built and developed to attain maximum benefits to people. Ayurved, can be helpful in similar ways to redefine core base values of the healthcare constitution of India.
Ayurved is the science of life, or it is the way of a healthy life. It not only briefs about various treatments but exclusively focuses on a healthy lifestyle which is a unique approach.
Early lifestyle modifications, early diagnosis and adopting Dinacharya and Ritucharya will be extremely beneficial in reducing outburst of many communicable, seasonal diseases. It is also beneficial to reduce the burden of lifestyle disorders like diabetes, hypertension etc which is India’s big emerging problem.
By adapting this preventive care by every single person will be an ideal base for health constitution 2023.
Along with focusing on new treatment, new infrastructure and low-cost medical availability, we all have to incorporate a “defence” or preventive care as part of our health system mentioned by Ayurved.
Renowned platforms like Nadi Tarangini will play a major role in understanding the base of the health constitution in 2023 which is needed.
Let’s pledge to adopt the Golden triangle of preventive health care mentioned by Ayurved. Let’s be part of the health constitution by maintaining good Quality Of Life by adapting Ayurved. Automatically this preventive care will reduce the burden on the curative health sector.
1. Awareness – Awareness about good preventive care for every system is very essential. Awareness about diseases, causative factors, medium of spread, vaccines etc should be provided through education, camps, seminars etc.
2. Early diagnosis – To avoid the burden of lifestyle disorders, non communicable disorders like cardiac disorders, cancer etc. Screening in a specific age group is very essential. It’s everyone’s responsibility to go for regular screening and take preventive care.
3. Adopting healthy lifestyle modifications – India is diabetes capital. Many lifestyle disorders are burdening our healthcare system. To cope up with it, let’s adopt the good lifestyle mentioned by Ayurved. Dinacharya, Ritucharya and lifestyle modifications including individual specific diet, exercise will help to reduce the upcoming burden.
Let’s redefine best goals related to individual health by adapting Ayurved. This will be the most essential approach in the health constitution 2023.
