M.K. Gupta has authored about a dozen books on physical and mental health, stress management and yoga. He is not only an evolved technocrat with a high management profile but has an equal interest on matters of body and mind. His keen interest in the subject of health and wellness led him to authoring a series of books on health care for layman. His enthusiasm, vivacious drive and an earnest longing for more knowledge on the subject inspired him to deeper study and accumulation of knowledge from diverse sources including doctors, physicians and dieticians.
This book is the fruit of his dauntless and painstaking efforts, years of research and accumulated knowledge.
'Health is Wealth'--- this maxim holds universal truth and value! Unless one enjoys good health, it is not possible to lead a fulfilling and joyous life in all its beauty and splendour and derive maximum benefit in other spheres like professional excellence, social expectations, sports, study or recreation. In effect, this is what inspired us to come out with this unique book.
The book envelops, in its purview, charts, tables and diet sheets for people of all age groups. It addresses many health and diet related queries and inhibitions of a lay mind. The data is more relevant because the diet references and tables are based on Indian lifestyle, foods, ingredients, fruits and vegetables that are part of our daily lives and thus neither difficult to understand or procure. Most appropriate for indigenous conditions and physique, the book is scientific and well presented. It also dispenses valuable information about body systems and functions, diseases and interesting illustrations. Moreover, it also focuses on the wellness of each body system and offers a comprehensive diet plan.
The concept is of wide interest and the presentation is very absorbing. A recommended guide for all in today's busy and stressful life and a pre-requisite must-have to cater to the health requirements of the entire family!
Normally people have to waste lot of time and energy in searching various data and information related to their day to day health care. This is because they have to search different books for different types of information.
In the present book, an attempt has been made to put all the normally required data and information, related to day to day health care, at one place so that people save their valuable time. This has been designed as a compact handy book which you can carry with you anywhere you want.
However, I would like to emphasize that this book is meant only for general information about health matters and is not meant for any medical treatment or as a medical professional hand book.
I am indebted to all the sources from where I have collected the material of this book. Although best care has been taken in the scrutiny of various figures but I would like to apologize if any mistake is left and will appreciate your pointing out to me.
