Lifestyle and Health
I have seen the era when the mode of treatment was in the hands of Sadhus, Tantriks, Quacks and some Herbal medicines to the enormous advancements in medicine and technology. Science and technology has done wonders in dealing with various serious ailments in diagnosis and treatment. It has done wonders in controlling many dreaded communicable diseases. Surgery for many thought to be untreatable diseases. It has decreased the morbidity and mortality rates in many deceases.
Friends, everything is not that much green. There are many pitfalls and some disadvantages also. Science has made our lifestyle fast, but this speed has lead to a number of lifestyle diseases like:
- Cardiac problems (Heart attack, heart failure, Blood Pressure or Hypertension),
- Brain Strokes,
- Neurological problems (Paralysis, Headaches, Vertigo)
- Congenital diseases,
- Joint problems,
- Respiratory problems like Allergies, Asthma,
- Liver & Kidney diseases.
