Q. Do you feel that a particular branch of healthcare is unable to meet the growing challenges in public health? Do you see a role for Holistic Healthcare in India today? What is it?
Ans. Every system of medicine has its advantages and limitations. The future of comprehensive healthcare comprises of an integrated approach of the most advanced form of allopathy care along with traditional and native form of medicine existing world-over since time memorial. This approach blends an evidence based approach along with the traditional methods of cure which have never been explored fully to its potential.
The search for a complete cure remains un-answered in any single form of therapy or discipline for many chronic ailments ranging from neurological, degenerative, auto-immune, disorders related to nutritional deficiencies and certain congenital genetic disorders. Every system of medicine has its own limitation in achieving complete cure in view of incomplete understanding of the nature of the disease and also the side-effect profile of one form of therapy which limits its role in achieving the objective of complete & holistic cure. Hence an integrated approach with the end-result objective of providing patient complete relief / cure is the need of the hour.
With this in mind forward-looking team of Doctors & Institutions like Brookefield Hospital are spearheading the revolution in treating diseases in a holistic manner through an integrated approach of advanced allopathic evidence-based care with time-tested traditional forms of therapy. The sole purpose of this approach is complete cure and relief for the effected individual.
