Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 21: Highlighting the essentiality of a paradigm shift in health care from the diagnostic and therapeutic models to a model of care that embraces whole person care, integrating mind, body and spirit, Dr. Sushil Sharma held a day long health awareness camp at Mathwar Nagri, Akhnoor to mark the annual congregation on the occasion of Basant Panchmi at the Devasthan. More than 400 people were screened, evaluated, diagnosed and free medicines were given as per the requirements. While interacting with the people Dr Sushil stated that the technological advances of the past century tended to change the focus of medicine from a caring, service oriented model to a technological, cure-oriented model. Technology has led to phenomenal advances in medicine and has given us the ability to prolong life. However, in the past few decades physicians have attempted to balance their care by reclaiming medicine's more spiritual roots, recognizing that until modern times spirituality was often linked with health care. Spiritual or compassionate care involves serving the whole person-the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. Such service is inherently a spiritual activity.
Dr Sushil maintained that science suggests an association among stress, depression and heart diseases. Several studies strongly suggests that certain psychosocial factors such as grief, depression and job loss contribute to heart attack and cardiac arrest. Stress and your reactions can be managed in both healthy and unhealthy ways , Unfortunately many people deal with stress by smoking , drinking too much and over eating . All of these unhealthy habits can contribute to heart disease.
Serving patients may involve spending time with them, holding their hands, and talking about what is important to them. Patients value these experiences with their physicians. He further added that Spirituality is recognized as a factor that contributes to health in many persons. The concept of spirituality is found in all cultures and societies. It is expressed in an individual's search for ultimate meaning through participation in religion or belief in God, family, naturalism, rationalism, humanism, and the arts. All of these factors can influence how patients and health care professionals perceive health and illness and how they interact with one another, he underlined. Mahant Yashpal Sharma showered blessings on Dr Sushil and his team for conducting cardiac awareness camp for the people and also blessed people to be bestowed with knowledge and wisdom. Others who were part of this humane effort includes, Dr Kewal Sharma and Dr Anitipal Singh. Paramedics and Volunteers who were part of the team included Vikas Kumar, Kamal Sharma, Raghav Rajput, Rajkumar, Rajinder Singh, Manoj Sharma, Bhanu Pratap Singh, Rajinder Singh, Ankush Kohli, Aman Gupta, Rohit Khajuria, Suresh Baigra and numerous disciples of the Trust.
