The Nigerian Navy Hosts Dr PhysiQ In A Wellness Lecture
Dr PhysiQ Wellness Centre for Integrative Medicine recent conducted a wellness lecture for the Nigerian Navy.
The Nigerian Navy wants its personnel to be proactive and imbibe the culture of preventive medicine to enhance wellness and fitness for optimal performance. To achieve a healthy workforce, the flag officer commanding central naval command, Rear Admiral Saidu Garba, organised a wellness lecture to promote mental alertness and physical health among personnel.
PROACTIVE HEALTH CARE
Many consumers think, and many caregivers stress, that proactive health happens when a consumer takes responsibility to proactively manage his own health – moving away from the physician “treating an ailment or disease” to a patient practicing “self-care” activities such as exercising, taking prescribed medications and vitamins, drinking water, watching their weight, eating healthy, scheduling annual exams, and so on.
REACTIVE HEALTH CARE
Approaching chronic conditions reactively does patients a disservice on two main fronts: first, reactive care does not work to stop them from getting sick or experiencing unpleasant symptoms in the first place. Second, reactive care is typically more expensive than what preventive care would have cost.
