While addressing the audience, Dr Naresh Trehan,Chairman, Medanta the Medicity said: “Around six crore people in India already have heart related diseases and another six crore are in line. The current modern medical systems treat patients using methods like antibiotics, chemotherapy, surgeries, radiation, etc. but even after successful surgeries, the patients’ body is left in great trauma.”

Stressing on the importance of Yoga and Ayurveda, Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev said, “Less physical activity, stress, unhealthy eating habits, smoking & drinking, undisciplined lifestyle, etc leads to mainly heart diseases, obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, and high Blood Pressure”.

These practices can cure almost 99 per cent of diseases”.
