A Chronic condition is a condition or disease that is relentless (insistent) in its effect. The term chronic is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months. Chronic diseases tend to appear more common with age. Improper maintenance of health- excess usage of tobacco, improper diet, no physical activities leads more towards chronic diseases. Common chronic diseases are arthritis, asthma, diabetes, cancer and viral diseases such as hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.
Preventive healthcare is nothing but measures taken for disease prevention, before going for treatment. Just as health encloses a variety of physical and mental states, so do disease and disability, which are affected by environmental factors, genetic predisposition, disease agents, and lifestyle choices. Preventive healthcare is especially important as the worldwide rise in prevalence of chronic diseases and deaths from these diseases. There are many methods for prevention of disease. It is been recommended that to discuss tips for a healthy and balanced lifestyle, stay up to date with immunizations and boosters, and maintain a good relationship with our body.
Family medicine practice is a division of primary care that provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, diseases, and parts of the body. It is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community, emphasizing disease prevention and health promotion. Primary Care Ethics not only teaches diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide information about preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Depression is the most common mental health. Women are more prone than men to experience anxiety, depression and somatic complaints-physical symptoms that cannot be explained medically. Helping such patients to adopt healthy lifestyles early on is key to a long and healthy life.
Focusing on health, nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle of women come under Women’s health. Due to lack of knowing and unknowing facts, these days women are more prone than men towards illness. The most common cancers affecting women are breast and cervical cancers. Sexual and reproductive health problems are responsible for one-third of health issues for women between the ages of 15 and 44 years. The less access to health care and social services than their male counterparts are leading to weakness. Combining the greater risk of poverty with other conditions of old age, like dementia and older women also have a higher risk of abuse and generally, poor health.
It is an approach to health beyond the traditional health care system that focuses on health equity-producing social policy. The ultimate goal of primary health care is better health for all. Few keywords to achieve primary health care are
• Nutritional food supplement, an adequate supply of safe and basic nutrition.
• Expanded programme of immunization against major infectious diseases.
• Maternal and child health care including family planning.
• Essential drugs arrangement.
Antisocial behaviors are disruptive acts characterized by covert and overt hostility and intentional aggression toward others. Antisocial behaviors include drug and alcohol abuse and high-risk activities involving self and others. These disruptive behaviors are one of the most common forms of psychopathology, accounting for half of all childhood mental health referrals. Healthy nutrition and prenatal care, a safe and secure family and social environment, early bonding with an emotionally mature and healthy parent, role models for prosocial behaviors, non-coercive methods of parenting, peer relationships with prosocial individuals, and early intervention when problems first appear are all excellent means of assuring development of prosocial behaviors and reducing and extinguishing antisocial behaviors in children.
Stress is a conscious or unconscious psychological feeling or physical situation which comes as a result of physical or/and mental 'positive or negative pressure' to overwhelm adaptive capacities.
Acute stress disorder occurs in individuals without any other apparent psychiatric disorder, in response to exceptional physical/or psychological stress. While severe, such reactions usually subside within hours or days. The stress may be an overwhelming traumatic experience (e.g. accident, battle, physical assault, rape) or unusually sudden change in social circumstances of the individual, such as multiple bereavement. Individual vulnerability and coping capacity play a role in the occurrence and severity of acute stress reactions, as evidenced by the fact that not all people exposed to exceptional stress develop symptoms. However, it needs to be remembered that an acute stress disorders falls under the class of an anxiety disorder.
