Unusual Medical Gathering: Mindfulness and Meditation, 17 July 2018

In a special convergence of medical science with ancient science, medical practitioners and people in the service industry gathered at Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre in KwaZulu- Natal South Africa, on Tuesday 17 July to learn the importance of mindfulness and meditation by award winning global mindfulness master Ishan Shivanand.

 

Speaking on the occasion, wellness wizard Ishan laid emphasis on the ironical need for doctors and healthcare professionals to de-stress themselves and be healthy in order to provide effective treatment, healing and cure to their patients. According to Ishan Shivanand, medical schools such as Harvard had validated through research that mindfulness and meditation lower stress and thus create a perfect ground for faster healing. "Just like the doctors sanitise themselves before and after every patient visit, they ought to sanitise themselves on the emotional, mental and psychic level as well," said Ishan Shivanand.

 

The session saw the master offering profound insights for honing the inner self to activate self-healing capabilities. He taught the participating guests meditative techniques, holistic healing protocols and perspective alterations to, mindfulness in particular and life in general. He also harped on the fact that since every patient approaches a doctor in stress, with the hope of finding a cure to his ailments, there was an obvious need for doctors to be fountainhead of positive life force themselves.

 

Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre Manager Niresh Bechan said, “We are so pleased to have been able to host an unusual and unique medical meeting for the healthcare professionals. Too often, we get so engrossed in life’s daily demands and forget to recharge ourselves. This session with Ishanji was most appropriate, in reiterating the value of revitalising ourselves. We are so blessed to have had this opportunity. ”

 

Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre was recently nominated for the 4th consecutive year by Discovery Health for ‘Best Patient Experience of Hospital Care ‘. In addition, they celebrate their 10th Anniversary this month. Adding to this facility’s uniqueness, they are the only private hospital in KwaZulu-Natal offering Paediatric Cardiac Surgery. In addition, another distinguishing factor is that we have a 15 member paediatric team representing 11 paediatric sub disciplines. And of course, we are a heart and stroke centre of excellence.

 

Lenmed Group Chief Medical Officer Dr Nilesh Patel said, “Being the service industry is like no other and that in itself is more demanding however it is all about how we embrace every day. In bringing this unique speaker Ishan Shivanand to our Lenmed Hospitals, we aimed to give our teams an added advantage and indirectly benefit those we serve. The mindfulness and meditation tools provided by Ishanji, will definitely enable us to continue to exceed the expectations of our patients, visitors and doctors. “

 

In a discourse full of humour, Ishan said that meditation as a complement to medical science was an idea whose time had come and that doctors would see for themselves the convalescence rates improving if they factored in the subtle aspects of a disease, the roots. "A human being is a sum total of the body, mind, emotions and impressions. If we can take an integrative approach to treatment, we can experience more powerful and lasting cure to diseases plaguing man," said Ishan Shivanand.

 

The medical fraternity on behalf of Lenmed presented a certificate of acknowledgement to the humanitarian for enlightening the doctors in a “science beyond science” which would act as a support, as an assistant to them on their quest to bringing health & wellness to the world.
