I’ve often heard people say that even the healthiest people fall sick - so what’s the point of lifestyle changes? Yes everyone faces poor health but difference is that those who have (mostly) healthy habits often recover faster, deal better with symptoms and also have lesser need for medication. Holistic therapies also support allopathic medicine, making it (in my experience) more effective. . This Friday we launch Holistic Healing, a series of podcasts with @redfmindia focusing on various aspects of health, beauty and fitness. From detoxes to running, mental health to dermatology, mudras, pranayama, Ayurveda, and homeopathy, we bring healing right to your doorstep. Launching March 13th. Download the @redfmindia app now! #holistichealingwithVR
