Disease is a disorder of structure or function in a human and it strikes with an exponential rate. Many people live their lives not knowing that they already carry the disease because the symptoms are too mild to have caught their attention at early stages.
Our studies have shown that those who live with a disease had contracted them many years before experiencing significant symptoms. Almost all diseases are the result of self-neglect either by virtue of plain ignorance or due to a lackadaisical attitude. It is all about the choice of living which is better known as “Lifestyle”. Which is why, most diseases are is commonly termed as “Lifestyle Diseases”.
Examples of Lifestyle Diseases include, atherosclerosis, auto-immune diseases, heart disease, stroke, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer to name a few. These diseases seldom has a known cure and modern medicine only offers treatment options to either slow the advancement of damage or alleviate the symptoms as a matter of relieving pain and discomfort.
It is therefore pertinent that people learn how to take the concerted effort to make specific changes to their lifestyle in relation to their food choices, meal preparation choices, living condition choices and their thought-emotional choices.
The earlier you start making important changes to your lifestyle, the better your chances in avoiding diseases.
