RAK Hospital free personalised consultation to UAE residents
The Eat Right – Eat Light campaign aims to guide people on their lifestyle choices during the month of Ramadan and after it ends, with the focus on detoxifying and healing their bodies, keeping in view individual health issues and preferences. For those using the opportunity to lose weight, the consultation will provide advice for maximum weight loss. Besides food, people will also be guided on how to best adjust their sleep timings in order to get maximum sleep. The campaign further focuses on returning to a regular routine of diet and exercise post-Ramadan, since a sudden change in lifestyle either way can be damaging to health.
In addition, RAK Hospital will be offering tips on healthy lifestyle and habits on their various social platforms throughout the month. Giving details of the campaign, Ms. Ruba ElHourani, Head Dietitian at RAK Hospital, said: “From eating three proper meals a day to going without food and water for long hours can be a challenge if we’re not prepared mentally and physically. Through this consultation, we will teach you how to gear your bodies for proper fasting to get the maximum benefit out of it”.
Dr. Raza Siddiqui, CEO of Arabian Healthcare Group and Executive Director at RAK Hospital, commented: “Fasting for an entire month is an ideal opportunity for us to create our health goals. The month of Ramadan is all about holistic healing, and cleansing of our body, mind, and soul. This also goes in line with the modern concept of intermittent fasting which is finding a lot of acceptability now. Through this campaign, we want to help people detoxify themselves and pave the path to healthier living”.
“But as we step into the month, we have to be prepared to change our lifestyle. Our food choices, for example, will decide whether we will be eating clean, or unhealthy, high-caloric meals that do more disservice than we can imagine. Similarly, for smokers, this a great time to break the habit as they learn to give up smoking several hours in a row, and if they follow through, they can actually quit by the end of the month. These, and many such benefits, is what the campaign is all about,” added Dr. Raza Siddiqui.
