Straight answers By Sriya Ray Chaudhuri Times News Network Friday, March 7, 2003 Dr Anjali Mukerjee, nutritionist on the powers of non-drug therapy What brings you to Kolkata? I am coming to Kolkata after a long time. I will attend the symposium to be held at ITC Sonar Bangla. The programme is being organised by the Bhagirathi Neotia Woman and Child Care Centre on the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8. What is the non-drug therapy that you practice? There are various ailments which can be effectively cured by not using drugs. This is an alternative method, where natural herbs, vitamins, food supplements and lots of proper exercise are used. This can be used either to prevent or cure illness. The non-drug therapy can be used to cure diabetes, arthritis, obesity, PMS and can even help prevent cancer and increase immunity. How viable is this system? Since the treatment we offer is of a highly individualistic nature, it takes into consideration each person's physical constitution as well as food and lifestyle habits. It also helps spread health awareness. Moreover, after the treatment is over, it is possible to be your own doctor and carry on maintaining a certain standard of living. Do you have any plans to expand your company Health Total to Kolkata? We at Health Total are always hopeful of expanding the company and serving more and more people. Moreover, we also have a range of branded health snacks with products like soyabeans, millet biscuits and soya nuts which can be eaten by diabetics, as well as by those who desire to eat healthy. What is your advice to today's women? Go back to nature and eat food in its natural form. Overcooked, bottled and canned stuff are not desirable. If you eat healthy, you stay healthy, with higher energy levels.
