Mysuru, January 27:- “Food we consume and the changes in the environment are causing the health-related problems,” said Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy (AYUSH) District Officer Dr Seethalakshmi.
She was speaking after inaugurating the “Free hearing aid repair’ workshop at All India Institute of Speech and Hearing (AIISH) here on Monday.
“It is important to keep ourselves healthy. Parents should provide their children with nutritious food, milk and fruits. Youths and elderly people should consume food according to the time,” she said.
“Food that we consume, work-related pressure and stress and changing environment are the reason behind the health problems. Hearing and speaking problems among children can’t be neglected,” she said.
“AIISH provides hearing aids of very good quality. They are priced from Rs 6,000 to Rs 1 lakh based on the technology, size and range. Economically poor can avail free hearing aid. If you have any problem with your hearing aid, you can get it repaired at the institute,” said the head of the Electronics Department of the institute, SR Srinivas.
Director of AIISH Dr M Pushpavathi and others were present. (MR/KS)
