Prevention is better than cure
This is a common aphorism among the medical community, but there’s a lot of truth to it.
Most people go through life with set schedules and habits, not worrying too much about their health. But when things go wrong and they end up getting seriously ill, they rush to their nearest medical practitioner, looking for a cure.
Sometimes, these health problems reach an advanced stage, and even with treatments, it’s not possible to get back to your old self.
Preventive medicine is all about making sure a person doesn’t get sick in the first place. Preventive medicine aims to either prevent the occurrence of a disease or halt an existing disease to prevent recurrent complications and reduced quality of life.
The ideology behind preventive medicine is maintaining a healthy lifestyle and overall wellbeing to avert diseases, disability, and early death.
Preventive medicine includes looking for initial signs of chronic or acute health disorders and assessing the risk of an individual contracting them based on their medical history and lifestyle. Preventive medicine also involves looking for vitamin or mineral deficiencies in the body.
Preventive care is less costly than the treatments for various diseases, such as diabetes, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular issues, and other chronic diseases.
The biggest challenge when it comes to preventive medicine is that it requires a lot of discipline and commitment from the individual.
While health practitioners can help you avoid getting sick with the help of continually advancing and innovative medical technology, patient participation is also a big part of preventive care.
