he good thing is most of the lifestyle disorders are reversible by fine tuning the lifestyle. Healthy diet and moderate exercise can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases including heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Also, the disorders are treatable if detected early. It has become imperative to check the disorders at early age. We need to check health profile regularly. Few basic changes include quitting smoking, avoiding alcohol, having a balanced diet that includes fresh vegetables and fruits, regular physical activity and leading a stress-free life.
As lifestyle disorders are slow in onset and progression, it may not be possible to detect them early. Once detected, long continued medication may become necessary. An expert consultation, early diagnosis, change in lifestyle and medication specific to the underlying diseases are very important in lifestyle disorders.
Homeopathy gives importance to the individual constitution. There are certain type of personality who are inherently lethargic, avoid exercise, prone for addictions, obesity etc. If their constitutional traits are identified early and given constitutional remedies, to a great extent these people can escape from the burden of serious illness. There are certain diseases like Diabetes, which has traits of family inheritance. Homeopathy can be of great benefit to the children of the parents with such diseases provided remedies for the constitutional corrections are taken and moderation in lifestyle are adopted.
Prevention is the better way to maintain good health in this busy world.
