The 21st century is the century of hustle and fast-paced life, where technology has become the biggest substructure and on which we humans are always on the run. Hardly taking the time for oneself, we do not eat properly, get enough sleep, exercise nor lead a healthy lifestyle, added to these are the environmental factors. While these may manifest and hint in our health in discrete ways, we overlook them presuming that they are petty and trivial, until things get ugly and our health is in neck-deep trouble.
But, on the other end of the spectrum, preventive health care has also become a commonplace as more and more people are realizing their health and the ill effects of a dangerous lifestyle. Though there are many medical advice, diet choices and exercise plans out there, to lower the risk of lifestyle-related conditions and diseases, nothing beats a regular health check-up to stay on top of one’s health. Doctors have repeatedly urged its importance to prevent diseases and to reduce the need for medical treatment or surgeries. It is important that we undergo full body-check ups every six months to understand bodily changes, if any. It also acts as a preventive check on our health. With Spring Health Pharmacy–premium full body check ups, get comprehensive and quality tests assessing the functionality of all body parts.
Check-ups could be quarterly, half-yearly or yearly, but the consensus is that the older you get, being vigilant about the check-ups is important.
Regular check-ups help in identifying possible health conditions at an early stage, and the adage that “Prevention is better than cure” has never been truer. Early detection gives one the best chance of fighting the disease off with no complication. In conditions such as cancer, early diagnosis can be the difference between a complete cure and a lifelong battle.
We advise even healthy individuals to get regular health checkups at least once a year, your doctor might even take a more selective approach to this rather than recommending a full body health check-up.
