10 Best Wellness & Health Experts in India

When you’re a kid, Health is Wealth is just a proverb. But as you grow older, you realize just how golden this rule is. To do anything in life, we need to be in good health. We need to be physically and mentally fit. That is why being aware and conscious of health and wellness is important. 

 

 

 

Health & Wellness

 

Often used together and interchangeably, health and wellness are actually two different concepts. Health refers to an individual’s physical and mental state. This covers diseases and sickness, as well as diet, fitness regime, and other elements which have a direct impact on the individual’s mind and body. Wellness, on the other hand, is a more holistic concept that deals with overall well-being. It is about striking a good balance in life by making conscious choices and progress in all aspects of life - emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual. It is the lifestyle of an individual. 

 

As an organization, it is your responsibility to create an environment that facilitates and contributes to the health and wellness of everyone involved - be it employees, students, or faculty! 

 

So here is a list of the 10 Best Health & Wellness Experts in India that you should invite to your organization today:

Settled in the US, Amit was a successful media consultant when his life suddenly came to a deathly halt. At the age of 27, he was diagnosed with cancer. Despite aggressive chemotherapy followed by a short-lived remission, Amit found himself battling the same demon again, this time much more lethal. Having lost all hope, he made preparations for his own funeral and decided to make one last trip to India. What he did not realize then was that the country was going to bring him back to life. Encouraged by friends and relatives, he decided to give alternative medical treatment that included meditation, yoga, desi cow milk, ghee, curd, gobar, and go-mutra a go. He then moved to a small village in Kerela where he developed a special bond with a cow. Miraculously, he would become cancer-free. Amit Vaidya has chronicled this unique journey in his best-selling book ‘Holy Cancer: How A Cow Saved My Life.’ He also started Healing Vaidya, an NGO empowering individuals to always be in the driver's seat of their own medical lives.

10. Mahesh Jayaraman, Co-Founder, Sepalika

 

Corporate-run healthcare system’s negligence and failure in treating a family member’s serious illness was what introduced Mahesh to the world of Health and Wellness. He had then taken matters into his own hands, nursing his relative back to good health using just good nutrition, rest, and an ancient South Indian system of acupressure, called Varmam. The more he studied these ancient, holistic systems, the more he realized their core value, of being able to address root causes of illness and restore people back to vibrant health. He studied with doctors, both allopathic and alternative medicine practitioners, learning to read lab tests and radiology reports as well as tongue and pulse diagnoses. He obtained certification in several of these alternate sciences and began using acupressure as a primary modality to help patients. Mahesh ultimately co-founded Sepalika to help people on a much larger scale. At Sepalika, they provide information on root causes and the right treatment of 13 chronic health conditions. They also have two guided disease-reversal programs. Mahesh has a team of doctors and therapists who work with patients to scientifically reverse their chronic health conditions.

 

Mahesh conducts talks and workshops around the country to help people understand how they can take their health into their own hands; to help them understand clearly, why they are unwell, and what changes they need to make, to restore themselves back to vibrant health.
