My Story: Who? What? Why?
(Medical Licensure: Dr Anupam Gaur, MCI/15184)
At CFOH we believe, “Restore optimal health to Reverse your Disease
Reversing your disease and make them disappear, diseases in particular chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are the long-term conditions like type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases, neurological disorders, Cancers etc. And there are millions and millions of people across geography who are already been suffering with chronic conditions like these. Indians are no different instead more inclined due to our genetic & lifestyle predisposition to many of them. That means, looking out amongst you now; there is probability of finding people in here who have already been diagnosed or unknowingly waiting to be diagnosed with one of these long-term conditions.
If talk in terms of expenditure, overall global pharmaceutical consumption is increasing exponentially, it is expected that pharmaceutical consumption will cross global food consumption just in fore-coming few years which is around 1.7 trillion dollars/ year globally. And 80% of which is on these preventable chronic diseases. That’s the way; how we are medicating ourselves? and things still doesn’t seem to be working.
And with this I’m standing here before you, saying ‘reverse your diseases’. I’m not a magician, I’m a mere physician what we Indians call an Allopathic doctor or the Americans call MD. The reason I say this is that I see these chronic diseases as an illusion, I feel they are not real, diseases don’t really exist, at least not in the way that we think they do. Disease are mere manifestations or symptoms classified in our language. They are result of some imbalance underneath.
Few years ago, I too would have taken these words by someone as surprise, but things changed. Last 20 years in field of medicine I always felt there was something missing, I moved from being a specialist to becoming a generalist (or a GP) but something was always nagging, the sense that I was just managing disease or simply suppressing people’s symptoms. And then, just 7 years ago came the turning point for me. 7 years ago, I was working as a CMO of one of the India’s largest automobile company, a company employing nearly 20000 on-role employees and equal or more on-contract. I with other doctors was responsible for their prevention and treatment from occupational & environmental health hazards and also to supervise & guide medical treatments & hospitalisations of employees and their dependents.
