Generally, the context in which an individual lives is of great importance for both his health status and quality of life. It is increasingly recognized that health is maintained and improved not only through the advancement and application of health science, but also through the efforts and intelligent lifestyle choices of the individual and society. According to the World Health Organization, the main determinants of health include the social and economic environment, the physical environment and the person's individual characteristics and behaviors.[13]
An important way to maintain your personal health is to have a healthy diet. A healthy diet includes a variety of plant-based and animal-based foods that provide nutrients to your body. Such nutrients give you energy and keep your body running. Nutrients help build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons and also regulate body processes (i.e. blood pressure). Water is essential for growth, reproduction and good health. Macronutrients are consumed in relatively large quantities and include proteins, carbohydrates, and fats and fatty acids. Micronutrients – vitamins and minerals – are consumed in relatively smaller quantities, but are essential to body processes.[39] The food guide pyramid is a pyramid-shaped guide of healthy foods divided into sections. Each section shows the recommended intake for each food group (i.e. Protein, Fat, Carbohydrates, and Sugars). Making healthy food choices is important because it can lower your risk of heart disease, developing some types of cancer, and it will contribute to maintaining a healthy weight.[40]
Les chaînes de transmission. Au mois de mai 2020, une épidémie d'encéphalite a éclaté dans l'Ain, à cause de… fromage de chèvre. En réalité, c'est toute une chaîne de transmission entre espèces animales qui s'est établie, jusqu'aux humains. En effet, comme le montre une enquête de Santé Publique France, l'encéphalite a été causée par des tiques, qui l'ont transmis à des troupeaux de chèvres du bassin d'Oyonnax. Le virus s'est ensuite propagé chez l'Homme par la production de fromage. Ces chaînes de transmission sont fréquentes chez les maladies qui touchent les humains (certaines grippes, potentiellement le nouveau coronavirus, etc.) et la compréhension des mécanismes de transmission inter-espèces est primordiale pour aider à développer de meilleurs traitements.
Various modalities of body cleansing are currently employed, ranging from physical treatments (e.g. colon cleansing), to dietary restrictions (i.e. avoiding foods) or dietary supplements. Some variants involve the use of herbs and supplements that purportedly speed or increase the effectiveness of the process of cleansing. Several naturopathic and homeopathic preparations are also promoted for cleansing; such products are often marketed as targeting specific organs, such as fiber for the colon or juices for the kidneys.
Sleep and meditation. Try to avoid high intensity exercising like running and weight-lifting. The more your body is working, the more energy you'll lose. Take the time to relax, stretch (keeps your blood circulation to better remove toxins), and use the time to reflect. Ask yourself why you're doing this, and empower your will to finish. Drink lots of water, nap, and go to bed early. Avoid watching TV because it'll disrupt your consciousness and make you hungry (due to all the food commercials).
