To fall sick again after looking at the doctor’s bill is very commonplace in our country. Coincidentally the fear of consultation fees overcomes the fear of falling sick itself here, and the cumulative expenditure attached to the Doctor’s visit is something which evidently stops us from even thinking about taking the professional opinion.
And thus we Indians proudly, very wittingly based on the expertise of our Ancestral-Household-medicinal tricks (in order to be clear we are not undermining any ancient Indian Medicinal Science Ayurveda etc.; but the Gharelu Nuskhey is something we refuse to respect) and our all-time proficiency in the well acknowledged art of Jugaad have skirted our way around. We’ve discovered the boon (pun unintended) of Self Medication.
By the reports 71% of medical students of the country themselves choose to self-medicate in times of ‘illness’ or ‘dis-ease’ and this figure is nothing compared to the might of the great Indian Housewife who efficaciously lead the fight with 94% of them employing self-medication in both Urban and Rural encampments of Indian Population. Age, Gender, demography, education, occupation, nothing comes out to be the deciding or guiding parameter of this sinister practice.
Not only for the petty headache or the seasonal sneezing people have started to outsmart themselves and opted for using their own expertise in matters of advanced stage ailments like Sinus, Diabetes even Blood Pressure (hypertension/ hypo-tension). The effects not only include Mutation of the disease causing agents making them impervious to the medication advancements, but also lead to a decrease in mortal immunity, infant mortality, life expectancy, and most of all a great galore of demand supply scenario in medical industry making the rates go high delaying the onset of long expected ‘Achche Din’. Not only have we been born and brought up in the nourishment of Dadi-Nani Nuskhas but the current enthusiasm of Pharmaceutical Excellency has left no stone un-turned to screw us. The sheer availability of generic medicines, pro-biotic substitutes and the spectrum of their advertisements has made even Doctors wonder if whose side are the companies actually on. And then the able blooded, YOGA BABA has led masses into the league of blind followers of firstly into exercise and then into his own unique FMCG product line.
We are not blatantly interested in the blame game of pointing out who is responsible for the expansion of this sorry scenario, but we do understand the underlying fact that an average visit to the doctor for any simpleton ailment which might not even yield a diagnosis that could satisfy our investment (that’s how we calculate the relevance of our visit to the Doc) costs us 500 bucks; and added to that lies the very evident costs of Diagnosis Reports and Repeat consultation. Not only the monetary dilemma but the unavailability of medical assistance at odd hours, in odd circumstances is also something which governs the usage of this methodology of curing ourselves on our own. After all how many doctors are indeed available actually right at the moment when we need them (don’t we all have to wait by the clinics till our turn comes to be conned; no offense). Thus the stalemate kind of situation which has been an avid factor in the decline of Indian Healthcare and well-being is not premierly the brainchild of just the Indian thriftiness or for that matter lack of awareness.
Realizing this important fact and the uncanny dilemma of the situation Your Squire Inc. has come up with a Eureka moment and designed a service which is going to single handedly fix the Healthcare problem.
