Partridge India Author| Dr. Anil Patil, Yoga: For Health and Disease Pt. 2
Partridge returns with Dr. Anil Patil, author of Yoga: For Health and Disease.
Which influences have inspired you, with regard to your writing style and your book itself?
Over a period of time I realized that there was scant knowledge of Yoga amongst the patients whom I treated as also the masses at large, irrespective of their education. It was also felt that there was inadequate scientific information about the various alternate therapies and therefore knowledge and trust only and solely on modern medicine prevailed. Sadly, people lack sufficient awareness of Yoga and other forms of alternative treatments which have existed since thousands of years, despite the fact that do provide assurance of a permanent cure; even then they are not considered of a serious note when it comes to seeking them as a resort to treating the disease and are actually unfortunately, looked down upon, thinking them to be inferior and unscientific.
Such types of skewed outlook have caused a huge loss to the society at large. So as to awaken the trust of the people in these alternate systems of Medicine I have already authored Arogya Ved, a series of publications in my own mother tongue (Marathi) and now of late this book on Yoga – for health and disease in English in which I have given details of the illness in an easy to understand manner without compromising on the scientific aspects and the solutions to the same.It is my humble wish that through this book a common man would get to know more easily about various diseases and the appropriate way of their treatment.
Nevertheless, my beloved parents, my late mother Dr Malati Patil and my late father Shri Madhavrao Patil have always been my inspiration, gave me my value system, provided me with timely encouragement during the course of my work and at all other times of my life.
What is the one message you would like to convey to your readers about your book?
One can do Yoga at any age as per his or her capability. Also, one has to pursue Yogic treatment in a given time frame. Thereupon after some time one has to learn to practice it b yone’s own self. I strongly feel one has to study Yoga and also maintain a healthy diet to reap maximum benefit.If one takes up Yoga at an early and young age, does Surya Namaskar and other Asanas the immune function of the body improves and the body is able to resist diseases in a better way.
Old or ailing people should do simple and regular practice of Yoga which will enable them to be physically flexible and stay disease free. Even if they are unable to complete an Asan, for instance, they can attempt to do it as per their bodily capacity.
