You must have passed by or heard about the billboard on Sheikh Zayed Road earlier this month with an advertisement claiming to cure depression with only yoga and no medicine in 10 days.
The internet was shocked by the false claim which caused an uproar on social media. The Ministry of Health and Prevention responded to the anger on social media saying that the advertisement was not licenced by them and the advertisement was rightfully taken down.
Less than a month later, another advertisement popped up by the same establishment on SZR only this time claiming to cure diabetes in 10 days. The billboard that read “beat diabetes, arthritis and back pain in only 10 days with no medicines” was spotted by a doctor who took to Twitterverse to voice her anger.
Like the previous one, this controversial advertisement also drew in heaps of comments and criticisms from outraged residents.
The owner of the yoga studio advertised, Sanjeev Krishna claimed to Khaleej Times that the billboard was not set up by the institute but was gifted to him by one of his students.
People suffering from mental or physical illnesses are advised to consult a licenced physician.
