Only you can take care of yourself.

Health. How much importance do we attach to it? Let’s face the truth. The moment it comes to visiting a doctor, we procrastinate. How many times do we look into the mirror to actually see ourselves? Do you know that those tired, sunken eyes might not be due to lack of sleep or overworking? It could be prolonged dehydration. Those unexpected bolts of pain in the leg and back? It could be calcium deficiency. That giddy feeling and persistent headache could be low levels of haemoglobin. To put it in simple words, even if one may look healthy from outside, it need not be so from inside.

What we should always keep in mind is that no amount of health supplements or vitamin tablets are going to keep us healthy, unless and until we are healthy from within. Ignoring a problem will only aggravate it and lead to further complications. So it always advisable to seek medical help,
Whether or not you have a visible problem. Remember- prevention is better than cure!

Heart diseases are something that we all should watch out for. With days getting more and more busy and stressful, high blood pressure is sure to find its way into our lives. And high blood pressure is something that causes several other health issues, including heart, kidney and neurological problems. Other factors that can make the heart unhealthy are high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes and obesity. The problem, however, is that not all of these risk factors show visible symptoms and yet damage the arteries permanently, which in turn causes heart attack and stroke.

The steps you take to maintain good health definitely act as an effective mechanism against most illnesses and contribute to a long, healthy life. Therefore the best thing you can do for yourself is take care of your body. However busy you are, make sure you find some time to take care of your health. Regular check-ups and slight tweaks in your diet pattern and lifestyle can help you more than you think. Try it.
