IHC Vision Statement : To deliver the benefits of Mind, Medicine and Meditation integration for health & wellness, and generate scientific evidences
The IHC (Integral Health Clinic) is a facility that puts health promotion at the forefront, with the “human being” at the center. It was established by Prof RL Bijlani in Feb 2000, and after successfully completing 21 years, a new and contemporary version of the same was launched, and renamed as “Integral Health & Wellness Clinic” in Feb 2021.
The manifesto of this outpatient facility is beyond the therapeutic gains and embraces the mindset of health consciousness. The facility is a unique one, and caters to the destressing needs of the AIIMS employees including faculty, students, residents, and staff, and their families.
With years standing in its past as a testimony, it has catered to the people from all the walks of life with an array of health and wellness needs. During the recent COVID pandemic, we remained committed to increased health and wellness needs at physical, mental and emotional levels and continued online and offline services as much as possible in-line with the COVID guidelines.
The IHC principally deploys yoga-based lifestyle intervention to the participants. The regular participants would include patients referred from collaborating departments within AIIMS, e.g., Psychiatry, Surgical Disciplines, Endocrinology & Metabolism, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, RPC (glaucoma, dry eye syndrome etc.), Medicine, Rheumatology, Orthopaedics, PMR etc. Participants might have a need to manage a chronic disease (hypertension, coronary heart diseases, obesity etc.) or they might be just looking for general health and wellness needs that gives them a better and balanced lifestyle.
An optimized and structured program as per requirements is available and is customizable enough to fit one’s needs. The usual duration of this yoga-based lifestyle intervention is 2 weeks (60 to 90 min/day) at IHC. Participants are always welcome to return for a refresher course. The entire touch-time is highly engaging and provides a strong moral support to prevent fall-out.
