The nation’s health has a long way to go. According to the health survey not long ago, there are 15 chronic diseases affecting our population. These are;
Rheumatism, asthma, high blood pressure, peptic ulcer, tuberculosis, heart disease, deafness, diabetes, mental illness, mental retardation, blindness, epilepsy, illness that causes lameness, mutism, and cancer.
The Ministry of Health found out that people living in the city are the ones mostly affected by rheumatism, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, mental weakness, mutism, epilepsy, and cancer rather than those who live in the countryside.
Some people have a misconception of healthy body. To some, it is measured from the symptoms that we felt, such as, pain, anxiety and other more. In this, if a person doesn’t feel anything or doesn’t shows symptoms it means he is healthy. Another thing is, if a person had a pain and is bearable he is still considered healthy. Still, for some illness and disease are part of being a human.
People who have this misconception will never attain good health. Those who want to attain it must not think this way. Rather think that there is nothing in this world excluding health can over run disease. And health coming from nature can heal most of it.
So, our problem is how to make ourselves healthy, because healthy means immunity to disease.
