Life is beautiful and needs to be enjoyed. In-spite of all the problems and diseases and disorders and calamities that we are facing a good lifestyle has always kept most humans healthy, happy and disease free.
But what do we mean by Lifestyle and Lifestyle Healthcare Management.
Lifestyle is defined as the habits, attitudes, tastes, moral standards, economic level, etc., that together constitute the mode of living of an individual or group. In simple terms the way you live defines your lifestyle. Lifestyles can keep on changing and your changing lifestyle has an impact on your body and health.
Lifestyle Healthcare Management in simple terms is how you manage the different resources at your disposal to improve your lifestyle which influences and impacts your health outcomes and improves your "Quality of Life".
With the advent of 21st century Life has become too busy, irregular and sedentary; all at the same time. People indulge in their hectic routines and jobs and don’t have time to focus on healthcare. All this is impacting our health either positively or negatively.
GeneScope defines "Lifestyle Healthcare Management" as bringing about a behavioral change in habits and self in order to achieve the right equilibrium between Health, Fitness, Wellness and Immunity.
Needless to say your GENES play an important role in defining your health, but so do your behaviors and environment, such as what you eat and how physically active you are. Your current lifestyle (diet, exercise, habits, sleep) and environment (pollution, work) can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. These interactions can influence a wide range of health outcomes. Let us look at each of these factors to understand how your genes can help improve your quality of life.
HEALTH - Genetic variations and environmental factors, including lifestyle behaviors and dietary patterns, have clear and distinguishable effects on lifestyle disorder risk.
However, the variation in the occurrence of lifestyle disorder within and between populations suggests that lifestyle disorders are caused in part by the interaction between adverse lifestyle and the genetic risk profile of an individual.
For e.g. weight management and obesity
Genetic profiling helps us identify these variations and take preventive action much before actual onset of disease.
FITNESS - in order to carry out daily healthy activities without being physically overwhelmed, a minimal level of fitness is required. This depends on a number of inherent factors like
These are your inherent body factors and as we have started understanding now they may have a genetic influence.
Genetic profiling helps us understand the impact of these factors on achieving optimum fitness level and take action to outline the right nutrition and exercises keeping in mind your genetic profile
WELLNESS - Wellness is the act where you
are practicing healthy habits on a daily basis
have a high level of fitness and immunity
have high confidence and resolve to meet challenges head on
are able to thrive instead of just survive
To achieve this type of overall wellness, a person must be healthy in four dimensions : Physical, Emotional, Environmental, Occupational
Wellness depends a lot on how the personalized lifestyle management plan is created and followed; aligned to a persons genetic risk profile
Genetic profiling helps us create a personalized lifestyle management program around nutrition, diet, exercise and medication aligned to your body requirements improving overall wellness and quality of life.
IMMUNITY - The current COVID-19 pandemic has made us understand the importance of immunity like never before. It is important to know the warriors in our body helping us to fight
off pathogens. Recently that the role of genes in boosting immunity has been identified. Genes modulate your immune response - which is your body’s mechanism to fight against viral invasion/infection. Having certain genetic variants could mean that you are more susceptible to severe infections caused by bacteria and viruses (eg., coronavirus).
Genetic profiling helps us to understand if one carries the genes encoding the antibodies required to fight against COVID-19 and other infections.
The root cause of many lifestyle health problems lie in your genes and so does the solution.
Use the power of your genes to bring about a definite change. A single test in Life can help reap multiple benefits for a Lifetime
