Health is defined by health related theorists in many ways. Some define it as the complete well being in the absence of infirmity or disease while some define it as the maintenance of bodily homeostasis. Non theorists frequently relate it with “wealth”. It is true that health is wealth. If one is healthy, the favor is with him or her to enjoy what the world brings. It is like monetary richness but internal. Whatever definition or thinking one has with health, it is still remains to be the main target of every person living today.
The trend in the current health sector has turned a degree higher and shifted its focus on preventive measures. Long before this, the focus was with treatment of diseases but this has cost the government millions of dollars. The expenses in treating diseases could have been managed to a lesser degree if it was allotted to preventing one. With this, all actions of the department of health in every country and so as management of private consultants in every hospital is aimed in preventing the progression of a disease, preventing complications or preventing a disease to fully develop.
There are a lot of ways to carry out preventive methods. Some do information dissemination by conducting health teachings. In this era, cardiovascular diseases rank first in the list of mortality rate. Because of this, health practitioners such as physicians and nurses conducts monthly seminar regarding the disease or do discharge heath teaching to their clients about it. Topics included in the discussion usually involve the definition of the disease, the rate of incidence, causes, treatment and preventive measures. With this knowledge, every person with or without having the disease can be empowered on how to prevent it or manage it by themselves.
Another way to carry out preventive measures is by publishing health books or reading one. There are a lot of good books out there that can provide excellent information about diseases, their treatments and prevention. There are even books that can help one in planning a diet meal for the whole week or month even without consulting a dietician. Furthermore, there are books that can help in creating exercise routine that will help one achieve a fit body. Technology has made these types of books readily available and very accessible. One can simply download health books in the internet or read free online health books that can help them manage their health.
