HEALTH IS WEALTH!
This has been on my mind for a while and I wish to share my thoughts with all of you.
Health Check Up! WHY? NOW? IS IT NECESSARY? COST? TIME? HOW MANY HOURS WILL IT TAKE?
But do we ask the same questions at a Shopping Mall, Theatre, Bank, Beauty Spa or Restaurant? Well I am sure the answer is 'NO'.
Why then does it matter when it comes to spending some time for your own health? I do agree that most of us have a fear of coming to a hospital for a health checkup, lest something might be wrong!
This fear is there in most of the people. But what I like to emphasize here is that, our life style today has work pressure, peer pressure and there is no time for most of us to eat good healthy food, have a sound sleep, or even relax at home with our family. All that we hear is a fast forward life style, fast food and even exercise is fast, meaning that people want to burn instant calories running on a treadmill!
In a country like India where the sun shines brightly, we find that most of us are Vitamin D deficient and air conditioners have taken over the fresh air.
Sunlight has also become a supplement. Well it is difficult for many people to change their life style due to their commitments, but what we fail to realize is that, at the end of the day our healthy life style really matters.
Try to start with a good life style modification, rise early, good physical activity, healthy food, sound sleep, good bowel habits, plenty of liquids, and to urinate regularly. These are mandatory.
Kindly teach the growing children these basic life style modifications.
To play in fresh air with good sunlight exposure is also very important for children.
A routine health check up is mandatory.
Obesity / Diabetes / Hypertension / Dyslipidemia / Thyroid Malformations / Hyperuricaemia / Heart problems / Vitamin deficiencies / can all be detected early and can be treated effectively.
It is better to diagnose early than to be left untreated till it's too late.
