The Foundation’s activities are directed towards supporting compassion in healthcare, particularly through raising awareness. A team of volunteers, aided by scientific and medical advisors, run a range of events including seminars, lectures, workshops, training, conferences and retreats. These are primarily for healthcare professionals, caregivers and patients but open to others who may be interested. All activities are funded through voluntary contributions. The Foundation also works with NHS Trusts, hospices and other healthcare organisations to introduce ideas and understandings that help to sustain whole-person healthcare.

More than 3000 members of the Wing include those practising modern medicine as well as other alternative branches of medicine, nurses, pharmacists and paramedical personnel. Most of them offer voluntary services to society when needed.

The Wing’s primary focus is on promoting health awareness and popularising the use of meditation along with medication. Meditation helps in quietening the mind and creating positive thoughts. The challenge in the current scenario of healthcare is to promote a holistic approach.

Diamond Project for Diabetes Management

We are well aware that the diabetes epidemic is rapidly increasing in many countries including India. In India, 69.2 million (8.7%) people live with diabetes as per 2015 data and it is alarming that more than 36 million people remain undiagnosed. So we require effective empirical studies to develop proper strategies to combat the menace of diabetes.

Methodology:

We have already conducted 4 camps at the Manmohinivan complex of Shantivan. Every month we invited 50 – 60 diabetes patients with their spouse and gave them proper training with morning and evening meditation and exercise, health education on healthy and balanced diet and lifestyle for diabetes patients, etc. We had a thorough laboratory investigation of all patients – ie HbA1c, Kidney function, Liver function, etc. We checked their blood sugar both pre meals and post meals all the 7 days of stay at our campus. We gave them the right medication according to their condition and at the end of the program, we found almost 100 % control of their blood sugar and blood pressure. We also assessed their mental status with various questionnaire by clinical psychologists and found tremendous improvement in their quality of life. We are regularly following up with these patients and find them to have good glycemic control and reduction of body weight in those who were overweight.

'MY INDIA ADDICTION FREE INDIA' PROJECT

Project 4 - brahma kumaris | official

Under the ‘My India Healthy India’ project, ‘My India, Addiction Free India’ the campaign was launched which specifically focuses on children & youth. The campaign is based on an experiential methodology taught by Brahma Kumaris. It aims to create awareness and educate people about the ill-effects of alcoholism and substance abuse on the individual, the family, the workplace and society at large

An independent study undertaken by the specialist team of doctors of GHRC, who covered addicts from 25 states and 2 UTs of the country made remarkable conclusions. They were studied for ‘Effect of Rajyogi Lifestyle as taught by the BKs. It was found that 65% of the study subjects gave up the substance of abuse successfully within 1 month of starting the comprehensive practice of Rajyogi lifestyle & a total of 85% did so within 1 year. An extremely low number (3%) relapsed subsequently with almost nil withdrawals (less than 1%).
