ABOUT US

Institute of Salutogenesis and complementary medicine (ISCM) is the innovative brain  child of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth (SBV- A Deemed-to-be-University in Pondicherry) that crosses boundaries of a regular healthcare university that introduced yoga and music therapy in 2010 as a Centers of Yoga Therapy Education and Research (CYTER) and Music Therapy Education & Research (CMTER). Way before the concept termed “Salutogenesis” was incorporated into the realms of SBV; the practice of the underlying theory of transforming the focus from pathogenesis to salutogenesis through various activities in realms of patient care, health professionals’ education and research has been entrusted to these centers. In the years that followed, ample infrastructure and facilities were provided, and eminent faculty members were recruited to fulfil the vision & mission of SBV.
It must be highlighted that SBV in the year 2018 brought forward an administrative policy statement and SBV Policy on Salutogenesis implementation and SBV Standard Operating procedure for Salutogenesis that has also been copyrighted. Such a policy by the university reiterates its commitment towards the creation of a health promoting environment that is supportive of wellness. In technical terms, as suggested by Mittelmark et al (2022), this can be understood as a salutatory extra-person factor that promotes positive health.
The equivalent concept to Salutogenesis in Indian tradition is ‘Swastha’ that implies a sense of being at ease with oneself. Acharya Sushruta (~600 BC) defined this positive sense of wholesome wellness as a ‘dynamic balance of the elements and humors, normal metabolic activity and efficient elimination coupled with a tranquil mind, senses and  contented soul.’ Yoga may be understood as one of the best means to achieve such a dynamic state of wholesome health and wellness at all levels of existence.
