T“Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into light.” – Helen Keller
he world knows Mickey Mehta as a fitness expert and a holistic health guru. But how many know that he started out as a door-to-door masseur? Or that he ‘healed’ his own mother of multiple organ cancer when doctors gave up on her? ‘Fit & Famous’ unravels unknown and ‘miraculous’ facets of Mehta’s life… They’re startling, awe-inspiring and drive you to believe that nothing is impossible without conviction and faith… Another person who believes that faith can move mountains is industrialist Dr Aneel Murarka. A near-death road accident left him with badly broken ribs and fractures. So critical was he that he was almost on his way to being put on ventilator. But that was exactly when Dr Murarka’s big fight began. ‘A Slice Of Life’ is a riveting tale of strength, courage and positivity. Positivity… A state of feeling good and being optimistic. But what happens when positivity levels start decreasing? Depression starts setting in. And what happens when it strikes men? Most go unreported. ‘His Health’ delves deep into why men think it’s a sign of weakness to recognize the ‘d’ word, and offers solutions to stop it from becoming another silent killer… …The number one being heart disease. On the occasion of World Heart Day, this month, we’ve put together a ‘Heart Special’ on how you can make a healthy heart your goal, and work towards achieving it. Read to arm yourself with some heart-health wisdom. And don’t forget to eat moderate, walk more, stress less, be happy and have gratitude – these are sure-fire ways to live hearty and healthy! Also, in this issue, we deconstruct trending health fads like the blood group diet and mud therapy; throw light on growing sexual diseases; tackle dementia – a raging medical concern today; and update you as always on the latest medical, fitness and nutrition news… I sign off, welcoming September, the start of festivities, with a wish for all to stay blessed, always!
