The Importance of Preventative Care

The Importance of Preventative Care

   You know what's very concerning? How conditions like diabetes are surging amongst the youth in the United States. Heart attacks are starting to become more common amongst young adults. Food is becoming more faker by the day!

   In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to overlook the significance of preventive care in maintaining a healthy life and society. Rather than waiting for illness or disease to strike, adopting a proactive approach to healthcare through preventive care can lead to numerous long-term benefits. 

   I want to speak on the importance of preventative care and how we must take the means and the advantage of the control we have. Because, once it's all done and gone and there's a serious health issue or disease, you can never be too sure if it will be reversible.

   It's important to identify potential health risks you think you may have or detecting diseases in early stages when they are more manageable and reversible. Regular check-ups and screenings is truly the best way to help identify any health concerns before they become severe.

   Preventive care is not solely focused on disease prevention but also emphasizes promoting overall health and wellness. It encourages individuals to adopt healthy lifestyle practices, such as regular exercise, balanced nutrition, stress management, and adequate sleep. It is very important to note that it's not the doctor or the nurse, but rather you are responsible for maintaining your own health, so implementing everyday health and wellness routines is indeed the best reward you can do for your health and yourself!

   Sadly, the way the healthcare industry is today is sadly declining. Like some nurses and doctors lack compassion, empathy and patience (although, I also understand there can be some really aggressive patients, lack or poor management and overall unfair treatment). When at a time in need and either parties can't work together, sadly we all fail. People dying cause ER's have 10+ wait hours, nurse shortages and some people just don't know what they are doing! Ultimately it just mean we have to be responsible and seek out all best possible options to help ourselves first, because if not, nobody is coming to do it for you.

   Let us embrace preventive care as a collective responsibility and invest in a healthier future for ourselves and generations to come. Remember, prevention is not only better than cure but also the key to building a resilient and thriving life.
