A disease of any kind is not palatable to the human body even though the phenomenon is as old as the human race itself.
Millions are daily trooping into health care centers and hospitals for the treatment of one disease or the other. Virtually, everyone has some stories to tell about one disease or the other.
While some are fortunate to overcome, others are not lucky to return home alive.
Only God knows how many lives have been lost to different kinds of diseases in human history.
Thank God for medical practice (both orthodox and traditional) which has played a crucial role in saving the lives of millions across the globe. However, medicine as a field and practice do have its limitations.
Irrespective of whatever disease may be in town, you can always safeguard yourself with these two easy methods any day.
- Practice Personal and Communal Hygiene.
Nothing can beat cleanliness! Personal hygiene is the science of keeping things (your body and objects) clean has saved millions all over the world from unnecessary health issues.
For instance, do you know it has been proven medically that handwashing with soap and running water can prevent the spread of more than 20 diseases including Covid-19?
Personal hygiene practice will no doubt reduce your visit to the hospital, and prevent incessant falling into sickness. Make your surroundings clean by getting rid of any unwanted waste, and debris. Do it today, and if possible now.
Encourage yourself and your loved ones to practice personal hygiene every day and everywhere. It is the pathway to a clean, refreshing, and germ-free atmosphere around you.
- Maintain a Strong Immune System
Our immune system is the natural guard the creator put in us to fight off every disease invasion. The stronger it is, the healthier you become. The weaker it is, the more vulnerable you are to any small disease challenges.
The issue with this natural lifeguard (immune system) is that as we age in years, it starts loosening its potency due to various factors such as stress, and lifestyle factors that are anti-friendly to our body.
However, you can boost or maintain a strong immune system with certain daily practices such as:
- Eating a balanced diet and cutting away junks foods from your meal or diet.
- Replace carbonated drinks with water and smoothies.
- Engage in moderate exercise on a regular basis, even if it is to skip rope 50 times a day.
- Avoiding unnecessary stress. Schedule your time and goals and don’t ‘flog’ yourself if you don’t meet them.
- Worry less and pray more. Share your ‘burdens’ with trusted ones. A problem shared, though still your problem, is half-solved.
- Cut off alcohol and smoking.
- Laugh often.
- Inhale fresh air always.
- Go on a medical checkup at least once a year
- Take sufficient sleep every day
- Take food supplements
- Pray about your health too.
Road traffic and daily stress can be very demanding, but if you pay attention to your health by practicing these two easy methods, you would enjoy health and vitality and in no doubt achieve your goals.
The adage that “Health is Wealth” is still as valid as the daytime.
It is even possible you are aware of all these principles but you can consider them as a reminder.
May you and yours enjoy health and vitality always…
