Following Rujuta Blindly May Increase Heart Trouble / Diseases. Be Aware. Be Careful. Be Alert.
Ayurveda has thousands of years of rich history. We Indians are proud to inherit it, and share the wonders and effective results, with the rest of the world. Like other sciences, Ayurveda also has some limitations and cannot be used for all situations i.e. heart attack, cardiac arrest, cardiac failure, stroke, heart surgery, brain surgery etc.
Images below and the attached links, are a testimony that there is a very big population which is tarnishing the image of real, effective, researched and original Ayurveda. In addition to Medical Science, Dietetics & Nutrition, we at 'First Eat Right' support and try to promote some selected, research oriented, age old proven methods of Ayurveda.
Professionals like Rujuta Diwekar, who has a pure Ayurveda Education Background (From Sadhana intensive and Teacher training courses, Sivananda Yoga Vedanta academy, Uttarkashi) stands on stage and blasts all other well researched, and proven, western Medical Science Approach, related to Dietetics & Nutrition, which is improper. Rujuta is not Qualified as a Professional Dietitian and she has very less academic exposure in the field of Dietetics & Nutrition which totals to 1 year and 9 days. Zero hospital experience, because she is not eligible.

A dietitian studies Dietetics for min 3 years i.e .BSc, and then 2 years MSc in Dietetics, which totals to 5 years of academic exposure in Dietetics & Nutrition. Then a dietitian works in hospitals with pre and post operative cases.
First, Rujuta should introduce herself, in all her videos and talks, as an Ayurveda Practitioner and then continue her talk, and she must give explanatory scientific answers to all her weird hypothesis and theory. If not, Rujuta should not be taken seriously at all. She is creating noise and confusion only, via her meaningless body & limb movement, gestures and talks. In effect, she is also tarnishing the image of real Ayurveda and nothing else. If she does not explain all the scientific mechanism, of all her weird preaching, which she has not done in the past, then, she should be considered to be misleading Indian Population and India like all other quacks mentioned below, the only difference is, she speaks English with meaningless, unnecessary, weird, deceptive & distracting body & limb movement & gestures.
Some of her unexplained advice, which she must rethink & explain minutely, before speaking / misleading.
