IMA Detox President Secretaries Meet ​
Never tell patients to reduce their stress… tell them how to reduce the stress instead
Doctors very commonly advise patients to reduce their stress. But, what we don’t tell them is how they can do so.
A Detox Leadership Meet was recently organized by IMA HQs at Om Shanti Retreat Centre at Manesar in Gurgaon (Haryana). At the meet, when asked to define stress, every doctor had a different answer to the question. 
Under the IMA 1 Voice Program, all IMA members should be clear and speak in one language.
The correct definition of stress is “the reaction (evident or silent) of the body and/or the mind to the interpretation of a known situation”.
The components of stress therefore include:
  • A known situation, which may or may not be alterable
  • An interpretation, which may be natural, positive or negative
  • A reaction, often modifiable, which can be at the level of mind and/or the body and this reaction can be evident or silent.
