Wellness is not the lack of sickness, but the capacity to overcome sickness.
What is Lifestyle Disease?
Lifestyle diseases means the diseases which are the outcome of the faulty lifestyle. And good news is that all these lifestyle diseases are not only preventable; But, also can be reversed, through the lifestyle-correction itself. However, the condition is that these must be caught well before they thrive the life to the hell.
People of all age groups, regions and countries are affected by NCDs or lifestyle diseases. Children, adults and the elderly are all vulnerable to the risk factors contributing to these diseases, whether from unhealthy diets, physical inactivity, exposure to tobacco smoke or the harmful use of alcohol.
These diseases are driven by forces that include rapid unplanned urbanisation, globalisation of unhealthy lifestyles and population ageing. Unhealthy diets and a lack of physical activity may be the bigger cause of the illness.
World Health Organisation states, “Management of the lifestyle-diseases includes detecting, screening and treating these diseases, and providing access to palliative care for people in need. High impact essential interventions can be delivered through a primary health care approach to strengthen early detection and timely treatment. Evidence shows such interventions are excellent economic investments because, if provided early to patients, they can reduce the need for more expensive treatment”.
What is Immunity?
Immunity is like the defence system of a country; which scans and takes the appropriate action to safeguard the body from its enemies i.e. the pathogens or toxins etc.. Everybody is well aware of it.
No clear definition could be derived till date , but to sum up the things to the most, ‘This is the system, whose essential job is to distinguish self from not-self, to recognise and take appropriate action against any material that ought not to be in the body, including abnormal & damaged components. “For example it can seek out & destroy disease germs and cells infected by germs, as well as recognise & destroy tumour cells. In deciding what belongs to the body and what does not.
As said, Immunity detects and pressurises the ’not-self’ factors to be out of the body by any means. This process is like a which is like war within the body. The tussle between the unwanted and the immunity do result into some physical, chemical and biological visible symptoms; which are medically known as ‘Prognosis Signs’.
What is Prognosis?
It is obvious, that it is the sufferer who comes across with the of symptoms (discomfort or abnormalities) of illness through his body endeavors well before the medical professional comes into the picture. To your astonishment, “The first laboratory test” was introduced in 1892 and clinical use of X-rays began in 1895. These are basic tools of modern medicines.
It clearly indicates that before 19th century the physicians were to use their power-of-observation to look for “Prognostic Signs” and treat accordingly. “Prognosis Signs’ are the signs that indicate the future outcome of the current bodily state of the patient, rather than indicating the name of the disease.”
One of the earliest written works of medicine is the Book of Prognostics of Hippocrates, written around 400 BC. It states that Prognosis is the prediction of the probable outcome of an individual’s current medical condition. A prognosis is made on the basis of the normal course of a disease, the individual’s physical and psychological condition. And still science of “Prognostic Signs” holds equally beneficial, if done thoroughly and regularly.
Take charge of your health before it’s too late.
What is Prevention?
Prevention is the set of “practices and theory” derived (gained) after a lot of experiences by the whole mankind itself through ages and different cultures globally. But, The principles & practice of prevention are ignored for ‘short-time-relieves’.
Besides ignorance, it is the individual’s attitude in the society, which has reached the maxim of carelessness and sometimes the life is also blamed for being so busy. It makes even you to ignore the symptoms that your body is coming up with; ultimately resulting you to suffer from illness easily and not know it by the time, they could be cured.
Getting impressed with the statement the bigger organisations of the main stream medical science like World Health Organisation and American Board of Preventive Medicines etc.; are keenly focusing into the scope of preventive medicines to make the humanity healthier, happier and thats too with a little cost.
Take good care of your body – it’s the only place you live in.
