Dr. B.K. Modi said, I firmly believe a much awaited renaissance strikes us today as we long for a healthier future. We have been witness to an era of suppressive medicine based on a symptom based approach to cure diseases, while ignoring preventive medicine. Aspiring for a meaningful, successful, healthy and long life demands incorporation of ” Preventive” rather than curative strategies which converge to aim for a “optimally” healthy, happy and better way of living that is Smart living. Smart living constitutes dynamic scientific steps to achieve health, wellness and happiness coupled with mindfulness, holistic medicine and regenerative medicine leveraging the best of medical technology, in an environment that reveres innovation and employing best-in-class professionals. The unique powerful combination of mindfulness and science makes it an apostle of health .It is about being mindful which implies being aware,focused and conscious about our own health and in the process enjoying life 24×7. Smart living will support R&D in a big way where latest technologies like stem cell therapy, genomic sequencing, natural medicine, Nutrigenomics, Metabolomics and likes will be researched in an Indian context.
