Right now the world is focused on finding a vaccine for Covid-19 and each one of us doing what we can to reduce our risk of contracting this virus. Now more than ever adopting a more holistic lifestyle has significant benefits. This pandemic has worsened our stress levels, and unfortunately putting many at risk of diseases such as Obesity, Hypertension, Diabetes, and Heart Disease to list but a few.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S, nearly 50% of the adult population is obese. The American Heart Association reports that are nearly around 103 million adults in the U.S have hypertension, and this is nearly half of all adult population in America.
The Uk fairs only slightly better with 28% of its population according to the Health Survey for England being obese. This was before Covid-19 and the massive strain to health care systems has meant the postponing of yearly health checks and screening. With the additional pressures and restricted living we now face; prevention has become perhaps the most important ammunition we have.
