Some of the steps to improve health of India are:

  • Prevention health checkup is the easiest way to avoid unpredicted healthcare expenses
  • Timely vaccinations
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the basic standards of health and hygiene
  • The rapid pace of the Indian economy has resulted in lifestyle health issues like stress due to the stretched hours at work, lack of physical exercise, optimum sleep and unhealthy eating habits. Yoga and meditation work wonders in such circumstances.
  • Organizations should understand and take the necessary health and wellness initiatives on priority and strive for a healthy work culture.

Why Need Preventive Health Checkup?

Prevention is definitely better than the cure; simply because a majority of the diseases are preventable. Many conditions can be managed and treated completely with an early detection. Hence, a person should go regularly for a master health check-up to assess the overall health and also to detect the risk factors of diseases.

Health Checkup Benefits

Following are few of the benefits of regular health check-ups:

Prevention:

Is really important for a timely treatment and also for preventing the diseases in its initial stage itself.

Reduced Healthcare Expenses:

Regular health checks assure that we save on the healthcare expenses. In this later stage of the disease, it becomes life-threatening and it has to be controlled by surgical or other advanced treatment options which are comparatively more expensive than the basic price of a regular health checkup.

Reduced Stress:

In today's supremely hectic lifestyle many health issues cause mental as well as physical stress. Lifestyle diseases like high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and mental disorders like depression are on a substantial rise. With the regular health assessments, it is easier for controlling these effectively and save the physical, mental and most importantly the financial stress later.

This Republic Day, let's all unite for making India healthy by the simple tool of prevention!
