Webinar on heart health and emotional wellbeing during the pandemic

It is during such challenging times as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that we realise how important it is to stay healthy. While it is a stressful period for each and every one of us, it is more so for those who have underlying heart health issues and emotional health problems.

Cardiac Wellness Institute was glad to host the webinar on “Heart Health and Emotional Wellbeing during the Pandemic” on 12 June 2021. It was very well attended by individuals from various walks of life and there was a meaningful interaction cum Q&A session as well.

Post-COVID rehab for complete recovery

Although most people with COVID-19 get better within weeks of illness, some people experience post-COVID conditions. Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems people can experience more than four weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Even people who did not have symptoms when they were infected can have post-COVID conditions. These conditions can have different types and combinations of health problems for different lengths of time, such as:

  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Difficulty thinking or concentrating
  • Headache
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Dizziness on standing
  • Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as palpitation)
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Cough
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Fever
  • Symptoms that get worse after physical or mental activities

The expert healthcare team at Cardiac Wellness Institute headed by Dr. Priya Chockalingam is providing a home-based online rehabilitation program for individuals to recover completely from COVID-19 at the earliest time.

The rehab program includes supervised exercise, breathing retraining, psychosocial counselling, nutritional guidance and health education based on the guidelines proposed by WHO and PAHO.

Post-COVID rehab helps to relieve persisting symptoms and recover completely without any COVID-related complications

We are glad to receive excellent feedback from the participants!

Dr. Priya Chockalingam, cardiologist and Clinical Director of the Cardiac Wellness Institute, addressed us during the inaugural session. Her talk was very informative and encouraging. The program included exercise training, nutritional counselling, yoga and meditation, and psychosocial counselling. We had experts in their respective fields training us in physical exercise, yoga, and diet with a follow-up program. The videos on exercise and yoga and the dietary chart tailored to individual needs were of great help. 

I enjoyed and benefitted immensely from the interactive exercise session, the yoga sessions, diet planning and counselling with psychologist. 

These sessions helped me realise that seting a weekly dietary and exercise goal and following it will help me in the long run to lead a healthy and stress-free life.

The program consisted of simple aerobic exercises blended with yoga and dietary recommendations. I have never done yoga in my life and I have to say that I achieved some inner peace after at tempting it. The aerobic trainer was very good and taught us a few exercises that I could manage on my own at home. I have star ted reducing my intake of r ice, especially curd rice; I have increased my intake of vegetables and sprouts ever y day. I changed my breakfast from traditional idly and dosa to nuts and millets, and I also make sure I have my dinner on time. It was a difficult task for me initially, but my body has started to adapt to the new diet and I feel very light.
