AVS Mindfulness works as an excellent model for prevention as well as eradication of stress. The founder of AVS Mindfulness Dr. Avdhoot Shivanand believes that in today’s challenging living, the symptoms of stress is actually a signal to the individual that he or she is heading towards creating a chronic or serious health condition. Symptoms of stress include worry, anxiety, restlessness, fatigue, lethargy, teeth grinding, chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, excessive sweating, panic attacks, irrational fear, muscle aches and pains, frequent colds and infections, loss of sexual desire or ability, low energy, regular upset stomach, nausea and giddiness, and depression. All these symptoms are warning signs of an approaching NCD or non-communicable diseases, which is on a very speedy rise as alerted by WHO.
It is now scientifically proven that chronic stress leads to non-communicable diseases like autoimmune diseases, heart diseases, stroke, cancers, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cataracts, insomnia, etc. NCDs are reported globally to be the main cause of lesser life spans.
About 90% of all diseases are caused by stress. Chronic stress has caused proliferation of NCD resulting into significant healthcare expenditure not only to the government but also to the private citizen and private section.
