Need of Preventive Healthcare

India is transforming rapidly from Curative to Preventive healthcare. This transition is mainly due to increase in health awareness among the educated mass, eruption of untimely and unexpected diseases without any symptoms and of course the huge and unaffordable medical treatment costs. With rising awareness levels both in the urban and rural areas with increasing disposable incomes, the coming decade is expected to witness increased demand for preventive healthcare. Today, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, cancer, hypertension etc are very common among the urban population due to unhealthy diet, changing lifestyles and habits, pollution and environmental & occupational hazards. It is estimated that NCDs alone contribute to more than 60% of deaths in India and majority of these deaths are reported in urban India.

Medical research has come a long way, and as a result, people live much longer than earlier era. While no one can argue that extension to average lifespan is good, for many it turns out to be a big old age challenge as far as enjoying the quality of life is concerned. Many of the elderly people have chronic conditions that overwhelm their daily activities or they get diseases repeatedly, which ultimately increases discomfort, pain, suffering and medical expenses. Learning about WellthyLife’s DELS theory helps you maintain good health and fitness throughout your entire lifetime and allows you to enjoy every moment of it. We strongly feel that the best way to counter any disease is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

It is true that not all the diseases are preventable but preventive healthcare helps tremendously in identifying and treating diseases at very early and manageable stages. Diseases are never an over-night and sudden developments. In most of the cases, it keeps developing for days and months together and we discover it only after we get the physical symptoms in our body. Our body certainly gives alarming signals even for the smallest discomfort. Most of the times we are either unable to read these body signals rightly or easily ignore it due to our other priorities. If these body signals are attended to on right time during dis-Ease phase itself (and not after it has converted to disease), then perhaps we can enjoy a disease free life.

DELs Theory

Most of the diseases can be prevented and treated successfully if found early enough. The likelihood of contracting heart disease, diabetes, and other health issues can be directly impacted by the choices we make every day. WELLthyLife introduces you to its DELs theory. It is the healthy lifestyle habits that can positively affect your health and wellness for years to come. It actually changes the way you live and it brings a new dimension in your life.

DELs means delete STRESS from your life.

D stands for DIET, E stands for EXERCISE, L stands for LIFESTYLE and S stands for STRESS. If you take care of these 4 things (Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle and Stress) in your life, then you can live a happy and disease-free life.

You will be able to read the signals given by your body on time and will be able to act on them without any delay. And in true sense, this way you can delete STRESS from your life.

DIET

You are what you eat. In today’s life, we are eating unhealthy diets which fail to provide your body with the correct amounts and types of nutrients for maximum health. Most of the diets we eat now are high in calories, fat and sugar. We tend to opt fad diets which do more damage to our health. Our fast forward life is taking us away from natural food. In today’s life most of the food we eat has pesticide residues and toxins in it. Processed food consumption is leading to lifestyle diseases. This change in food habits has not only exposed us to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity, but has also made kids more prone inflammatory bowel disease. Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (P-IBD) is a condition wherein child’s immune system turns against his /her intestine causing long-term health issues.

Poor eating habits and food choices greatly increase the risk of lifestyle diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and various other health conditions. Poor eating habits can include the over-consumption of certain foods, dietary deficiencies and excessive intake of saturated fats and refined or processed foods. This affects people at both ends of the socio-economic spectrum, with different types of diseases affecting both people. While developed nations and the urban population tend to follow diets that are high in calories with saturated fats, red meats and other junk food, they fail to follow a diet that can often include whole foods and fresh produce including fruits, vegetables and cereals. Affluent and developed societies have diets characterized by a high salt intake, increased consumption of fat and sugar and animal products. Another common problem faced with urbanization and development is an increase in the prices of fresh produce and products like organic fruits and vegetables, while refined and processed foods are cheap and widely available. To cope with high-pressure jobs and the fast paced lifestyle, people living in cities tend to make choices of convenience when it comes to food.

EXERCISE

Physical inactivity is a primary cause of most chronic diseases. Engaging in moderate physical activity is very important for the primary prevention of chronic diseases, decreasing all causes of mortality and that exercise is one of the determinants for physical and psychological well-being. Physical activity and exercise training have important roles in preventing atherosclerotic CAD, managing selected CAD risk factors, including elevated triglyceride levels, low HDL-C, hypertension, glucose intolerance, hypertension, obesity etc.

World Health Organization (WHO) suggests regular physical exercise in order to improve cardio respiratory and muscular fitness, bone health, reduce the risk of NCDs and depression. Regular exercise is necessary for physical fitness and good health. It reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. It can improve your appearance and delay the aging process. A regular exercise not only helps you manage your weight and reduce your risk of developing diseases but, it can help prevent and treat mental health problems. It can boost your wellbeing and mood, and is a great way to unwind from the stresses of life. The core benefits of exercise are:

  • Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
  • Exercise reduces your risk of high blood pressure (hypertension), coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some cancers.
  • Exercise helps manage your weight and reduces your risk of becoming obese.
  • Exercise improves your bone health.
  • Exercise improves your muscular and cardio respiratory fitness.
  • Exercise improves mood
  • Exercise boosts energy
  • Exercise promotes better sleep
  • Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life
  • Exercise can be fun and help you be social

LIFESTYLE

A sedentary lifestyle is one of the distinctive features of urbanization, development and progress. Almost all inhabitants of cities are engaged in occupations that require little physical activity and most don’t even permit much time to engage in any physical activity. This is a huge contributing factor to the rise of lifestyle diseases and chronic conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol and it can subsequently lead to problems with obesity, heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and so on. It can also increase levels of stress and anxiety and raise the risk of suffering from various other health conditions.

Obesity has become one of the greatest problems for modern society as it greatly increases the risk of numerous health conditions from diabetes and hypertension to sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, lower back pain and gallbladder disease. Obesity is also closely associated with cancer, coronary artery disease and overall diminishes life expectancy. While your BMI is normally used to calculate the extent of body fat and the extent of obesity, the risk is also affected by your distribution of fat. Abdominal fat poses the highest risk and is also referred to as central obesity. Central obesity greatly increases the risk of lifestyle diseases early in life with conditions like raised insulin, high blood pressure high triglyceride levels and high cholesterol levels even affecting young adults.

STRESS

Stress doesn’t just affect us emotionally or mentally, it also has a clear physical effect as it aggravates and increases the risk of conditions like obesity, cardiac disease, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer’s disease, rapid aging and gastrointestinal problems. Stress and anxiety can also affect one’s ability to relax and get proper sleep, contributing to a further deterioration in health and a host of other problems. Stress doesn’t refer to stress or anxiety that affect us from time to time due to the high pressure situations that develop at work or at home, but it refers to frequent and constant stress. This is a common problem for most urban populations because of the highly competitive job market, education system, high-pressure jobs, the lack of time and other factors that make schools and careers highly stressful. This spills over into personal life as well as individuals struggle to balance personal and professional lives while navigating through the emotional roller coaster of human relationships. The combination of work, relationship and financial stress can often be so overwhelming that people tend to withdraw completely, shunning social contact and sinking further into depression.

In fact they are interlinked

Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle and Stress are linked with each other. DELs theory gives you a holistic approach to add health & wellness to your life. The main factors contributing to lifestyle diseases include bad food habits, physical inactivity, wrong body posture, and disturbed biological clock. A report, jointly prepared by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Economic Forum, had confirmed that unhealthy lifestyles and faulty diet are serious concerns for India. According to the report, 60% of all deaths worldwide in 2005 resulted from non communicable diseases and accounted for 44% of premature deaths. What's worse, around 80% of these deaths will occur in low and middle-income countries like India which are also crippled by an ever increasing burden of infectious diseases, poor maternal conditions and nutritional deficiencies.

Stress and depression poses even greater risks to one’s health and this problem often goes hand in hand with other unhealthy habits like comfort eating, which contributes to the problem of unhealthy eating, as well as a lack of physical activity. All of these add to the problem of obesity. Obesity in turn further spirals depression because of the resultant poor body image. As is the case with almost all lifestyle disease risk factors, this is part of a vicious cycle, exacerbated by poor eating habits, a sedentary lifestyle and other conditions.

Staying healthy doesn't happen by accident. It's the product of healthy habits practiced every day. With WELLthyLife’s DELs theory you can actually get into those healthy habits and can change your life to a ‘WELLthyLife’.

Prevention is better than Cure

As the saying goes ‘Prevention is better than Cure’, prevention remains the best and most important aspect of healthcare. But despite the best efforts, illness is an unpredictable fact of the life. Increasingly modern and fast paced lifestyle adds to the growing list of such illnesses and other health concerns. Regular screenings are vital to detect any possibilities of diseases at the earliest of the stages allowing the right course of action to be taken immediately. Thus diagnosis, as early as possible, allows you to act in time where prevention has failed. Other than diagnosis, regular screening helps you to know your vital parameter trends and hence the problem areas too.
