Did you know that 80% of chronic diseases and premature deaths can be prevented by not smoking, eating a healthy diet and keeping physically active?
Yet this simple truth about disease is not more widely known or acted upon in our society today.
All over the world, increasingly urban lifestyles are making it easier than ever to be sedentary and cheaper to overindulge in unhealthy foods, drinks and habits.
The conveniences we take for granted as part of our modern lifestyle has also changed our environment in many ways that make it harder for us to stay in good health as we age.
The result is that we have collectively, as both doctors and patients, allowed a culture of “disease care” to overtake that of “health care”.
Ancient Chinese medicine physicians have long recognised that disease prevention is superior than its treatment. And if we take an honest, hard look at our health care system today, it is just not good enough at preventing chronic diseases and keeping our families healthy.
At Ping Ming Health, we believe that everyone can do their part and recognising this weakness in the way we practice health care today is an important first step to being the change we want to see.
We will continue to take more steps towards this goal of helping our clients to live happier and healthier lives.
So, are you willing to join us on this journey by making healthier choices and positive changes in your life?
