It is a popular as well equally true saying that “Health is Wealth”. If you are healthy enough you can do work beyond the limits.
Healthy person have a shine on the face which encourages him to do better and his energy level is so high that after continuous work, he never tires. In our Hindu mythology, we say ‘First denomination is healthy body and second a wealthy empire’. Means we consider Health not equivalent to wealth but more than that.
Previously our food habits were such and the things were so pure that a very few people had any kind of ailments and were not in need to consult doctors and physicians. Only a few diseases were known and medication facilities were also limited.
With the advancement of technology, our life style, eating style has changed altogether.
More to that now physical labour has also becomes less, inviting High B.P., Diabetes , Heart problems, and such diseases are popping up in the scene.
Not elders but now even kids are having these problems which is a very alarming.
Now the medical expenditure is also touching the sky limit. Previously we knew that the Vaidya used to check the Naadi, and that was the final diagnosis. I have seen a Vaidya, 30 years back that by touching the Naadi, he used to predict either you have taken Raddish as a vegetable or a salad.
Have you undergone any surgery? No urine or blood tests for Typhoid, Malaria, Jaundice, only Nadi examination. Now gone are the days of that knowledgeable Vaidya of Ayurveda or Unani.
Now the Diagnosis Laboratory Industry is flourishing more than the Medical professionals. Even for a headache, neck pain, burning in hands, tests are written. It is a good sign also but at the same time this is also giving a bad name to Medical Profession. But these days doctors say that we do not want to take any risks on the imaginations.
It is safe to have medical tests. Previously there were physicians for medicines and consultation and on the recommendations of them, the cases were used to be referred for surgery. Now the trend of specialists has come. For every disease there is a specialist. Again the same approach, no risk. We can say that even a one person is hale and healthy and has no ailments on this earth today.
