Perfect health is a myth but resilience is practical – a neurologist talks about reclaiming health
A neurologist and a neuroscientist from Milan, Dr. Antonio Morandi discusses with Dr. Vijay Murthy the problem with WHO's impractical definition of HEALTH. Dr. Morandi explains the concept of RESILIENCE as the most appropriate way to establish individual's health goals despite an illness he/she is diagnosed with. Dr. Morandi talks about the danger of superimposing laboratory tests and medical reports on to the patient in arriving at a suitable treatment plan. He suggests that listening to the patient, understanding the patient beyond the condition of interest is of immense value. Dr. Morandi explains how Ayurveda can be highly useful in personalised health care.
