Wellness has become a cult these days. Some of us have experienced it, some of us have been given an idea about what it is and most of us have been given all the wrong ideas about what wellness is. Suddenly everything that everyone offers is being branded as wellness and credibility is at stake for a genuinely wonderful area of medicine. Being an allopathic physician who then went on to practice wellness after quite a few years of training, I will attempt to introduce wellness into your life.
To put it in simple words, wellness is the state that we should all aim to be in. Discomfort is the state in which most of us are in. We fall ill and go to the doctor who cures our illness and puts us back into the state of discomfort and we move on. Wellness is the jump from discomfort to comfort where your nagging issues like weight, energy levels, mental well being, sleep, bowel habits, stamina and sexual life are all in harmony. When all of this is in harmony, you experience wellness. Not one or two of them, but all of them in harmony is the key to wellness.
