Health can be considered as a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being. (World Health Organization)
Health is a resource for daily life that allows people to live a socially and financially productive life. There are several factors that have an influence on our health.
According to the study by Lalonde (Canada, 1974), there are 4 mainsprings:-
- Each individual has their own and can be predisposed or protected with regard to different illnesses.
- A number of external factors over which the individual has no control.
Habits and lifestyle
- A series of different types of behaviour or attitudes that people develop over a lifetime that can be positive or detrimental, many of the negative ones causing illnesses. Changes in habits and lifestyle can be vital in preventing and combating illnesses.
Organising best health plan
- Ensuring consistency, reliability and availability of treatments.
Health is maintained through science and the practice of medicine but also through one’s own efforts.
