Experts explore realm of personalised nutrition and its potential in metabolic health, ET HealthWorld

A recent Continuing Metabolic Health Education (CMHE) event held at AIIMS, New Delhi, brought together experts to discuss the potential of personalised nutrition in revolutionizing metabolic health. The event highlighted the importance of traditional Indian dietary practices in managing metabolism and explored how ancient wisdom can inform modern lifestyles, as over 50 per cent of Indian adults suffer from metabolic disorders.

Dr KP Kochhar, Professor and Head of the Department of Physiology at AIIMS, emphasized the significance of traditional practices like yoga and Ayurveda in maintaining metabolism. She explained how the human body functions as a complex ecosystem and how factors like nutrition, sleep, activity, and stress can disrupt vital chemical processes, leading to chronic metabolic diseases. By adopting healthy lifestyles, mindful eating, and incorporating traditional dietary staples like millets and spices, optimal metabolic health can be promoted.

Dr Maluk Mohammed, Co-Founder and CEO (India) of TWIN Health, highlighted the importance of addressing chronic metabolic diseases at their root cause to reverse these conditions. He introduced the Whole Body Digital Twin as a tool to target and improve external factors contributing to metabolic damage, such as nutrition, sleep, activity, and stress. This approach aims to restore the body’s chemical processes to normalcy, reducing negative effects and reversing organ damage and metabolic diseases.

The CMHE conference shed light on the limitations of current standard care for metabolic conditions, which primarily focus on managing symptoms rather than addressing the root cause. With over 50 per cent of Indian adults affected by metabolic disorders, innovative approaches like personalised nutrition plans offer a promising solution for managing and potentially reversing chronic metabolic diseases. This blend of traditional wisdom with modern technology paves the way for a healthier future through tailored solutions for optimal metabolic health.
