The wellness of a healthy life depends on several factors. Sometimes there are hereditary components that are not modifiable, they can only be controlled, but most risk factors can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Chronic non-communicable diseases are responsible for 63% of annual deaths worldwide. Cardiovascular diseases, heart attacks, metabolic syndromes, diabetes, respiratory diseases, depression and even some oncological diseases are characterized by slow proliferation, attacking the elderly and are often asymptomatic until they reach advanced stages. Normally, patients seek medical attention when they already have symptoms and when the disease is already in a more advanced stage.
For this reason, health prevention implies working on the modification of habits or behaviors that contribute to being healthy, in addition to the early detection of diseases with the help of a specialized physician. The disease influences the degradation of a quality life, can reduce the patient’s capabilities and alter their daily life. It’s essential to adopt self-care practices from an early age and to make them part of physical and mental development. It’s necessary to leave behind the habit of going to the doctor only when an illness occurs and start implementing a culture of prevention.
Some advices that you can implement in your daily routine are:
- Eat a healthy and balanced diet recommended by your provider.
- Exercise regularly.
- Avoid the intake of toxic substances.
- Take moments for relaxation.
- Take care of eating and sleeping hours.
- Exercise the mind.
- Have medical check-ups.
The most important thing is to be aware of your body because each body is different and must have its own care. Don’t go to your doctor only when you have symptoms. It is important to have check-ups to know the care and recommendations specially designed for your well-being. A large percentage of diseases can be prevented if you are under the supervision of your primary care physician. It is important to Bright Care Medical Group to take care of you, screen for disease, identify risk factors, discuss a healthy lifestyle plan, and stay up-to-date on all immunizations.
