The burden of Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) is growing at an alarming rate in our country. A survey done recently observed that India’s NCDs increase after 18 years and show a quantum leap when an individual crosses the age of 35 years. Hypertension,
digestive diseases and diabetes are the top three disorders.
According to WHO “The rise of NCDs has been driven primarily by four major risk factors: tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol and unhealthy diets”. It is for this reason that these NCDs are also called Life Style Diseases.
We have as individuals a huge role to play in preventing and at least minimising the damaging effects of these disorders.
Wellness is a feeling when we can live our daily life the way we want to, without getting tired, we sleep soundly, we feel hungry , and we are enthusiastic both about working or recreation without fear. This is a combination of physical health, mental ease, and freedom of the mind..
