Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
Hello, My name is Salila Raju. I am 32 years old. A doctor by profession with a specialization in radiodiagnosis. My work mainly concerns with the diagnostic imaging including Ultrasound, CT scan, MRI and X-rays. I work in LUCID medical diagnostics located in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.
Q: Why Radiology?
Well, frankly speaking, I chose radiology because of my fascination towards imaging and also it offers a less hectic schedule as compared to other branches.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I believe in continuous growth. I definitely want to be a better version of myself.
Q: What challenges do you face as a woman in the field of radiology?
Radiation has many adverse effects especially in young women they can cause genetic errors in the fetus.
Q: We understand the challenges you face every day and the nature of your work might be taking quite a toll on you. So, how do you de-stress?
The busy schedule we face takes a major toll on both physical and mental health. Time constraints and stress make us eat whatever available and turn to junk food to comfort the stress levels as well as cravings. I personally suffered a big nutritional imbalance when i was a student and doing my residency.
Lately, I realized how important it is to bridge that gap and become physically strong to empower ourselves because mental stability comes from a strong healthy body!
Nutritional needs of a woman are different and change as she goes through different stages of life. Especially women require adequate proteins as opposed to the belief that only body builders and men require them to build muscle.
Over a period of time I switched to a balanced diet with healthier alternatives and exercise to fight with my stress levels. and trust me they work wonders.
Q: You have been a regular consumer of Flex Protein’s products. What do you have to say about them? Also, do you have any favorites?
These days everyone wants to sell you something! But I started to do a little research to find healthier alternatives, when i came across the products of Flex Protein. I just love them for their pure natural ingredients without any preservatives, harmful chemicals and adulterations.
My personal favourite is their crunchy peanut butter for its amazing taste and it contains only peanuts guys, and nothing else! Kudos to the excellent job by Mr. Tony Datti and the entire team of Flex Protein! Definitely worth trying!
