‘Our foundation has always been working on harnessing and developing a strong immune system since that is the first and last line of defence and that is one of our focus for every case that comes to us. However, with the current pandemic situation and people worrying about their health, recovery, and prevention, we are running our immunity programs where our integrative team works on building their immunity through lifestyle practices’.
Luke Coutinho Globally renowned Holistic Lifestyle Coach in the field of Integrative Medicine and the Founder of Luke Coutinho Holistic Healing Systems Pvt Ltd (LCHHS) explains India Startup360 during the briefing about their Wellness programs. ‘Our approach towards prevention and healing revolves around four important pillars: Balanced Nutrition, Adequate Exercise, Quality Sleep and Emotional Detox. Our model is based on an integrative ecosystem that comprises everything that falls under health and wellness. We have our four pillars of lifestyle, that form the foundation of good health’.
Supporting each pillar of Lifestyle, LCHHS has experts and professionals from the field of nutrition, dietetics, clinical nutrition, lifestyle and fitness coaches, yoga therapists, emotional health counsellor, meditation experts, etc. Being firm believers of integrative medicine, which respects all forms of medicine and healing that looks at the best interest of the patient, they also have experts from the field of medicine like allopathy, homeopathy, Ayurveda, Naturopathy, all working together as a team. Since they use food as medicine and believe that it should be of the finest and without chemicals to be effective, they are constantly on a lookout for vendors doing great work in this area with good price points and including them into our ecosystem.
Luke’s entrepreneurial journey started off with consulting patients and clients all across the country and then the globe. The more he consulted, the more he identified gaps in people’s lifestyles and how there is chronic illness everywhere that is only being suppressed with pills and medicines for short term relief but pushing the root cause deeper and deeper, thus affecting their health and wellbeing. He realised how people are popping pill after pill to relieve their systems but fail to make changes in their way of living, that is eating better, sleeping well, being active, and taking care of their emotional health. That is when LCHHS started adding lifestyle as a medicine to basic nutrition, because even nutrition is incomplete without these aspects of lifestyle.
LCHHS’ core is consulting with people in regards to their lifestyle and health all around the world, along with personalised programs to handhold them in this journey of making a lifestyle switch. They consult them on a wide range of conditions ranging from weight gain and obesity to cancer, autoimmune, pregnancy complications, kid’s health, brain conditions, etc.. They have experts from the field of clinical nutrition, pregnancy care, kidney care, yoga, allopathy, homeopathy – everything built-in into their ecosystem. When a patient comes, they spend time diagnosing their condition and thus designing a suitable program and integrative team handling the condition.
When asked about their contribution to tackling Corona Pandemic Luke says ‘Our foundation has always been working on harnessing and developing a strong immune system since that is the first and last line of defence and that is one of our focus for every case that comes to us. However, with the current pandemic situation and people worrying about their health, recovery, and prevention, we are running our immunity programs where our integrative team works on building their immunity through lifestyle practices. Apart from that, we have shared a lot of content and information on how one can build immunity within the comforts of home and safety of lockdown using basics of lifestyle like nutrition, sleep, physical activity, yoga and pranayama, meditation, emotional wellness that people often miss out on. We even shared an e-book on Immunity, free of cost a month back, for people to read and begin working on their immune systems’.
As their future goals and plans, LCHHS is constantly focused on growing the ecosystem and making it richer and richer in terms of what they have to offer to those who reach LCHHSs and their plan in the future is to continue doing that. LCHHS plans to reach out to more people and masses in the future to educate people free of cost using various channels and social media because their aim has always been preventative healthcare and now even more. As a company, LCHHS aim towards treating and managing their health conditions, but also focuses on preventative medicine in a huge way. Additionally, their future goals also involve working in further building the food chain, saving our environment as the outer environment also has an impact on the inner environment within us, and running educational programs.
