The World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that non-communicable diseases (NCDs) cause equivalent to 71% of all deaths globally. These are often associated with lifestyle, metabolic and behavioural risk factors.
Which is why, at Bodhi Integrative Health, we focus our care on educating you to live a life of holistic health — of mind, body and soul.
We make the effort to understand your current lifestyle. We learn your habits, food choices, digestive type, exercise and activity levels, stress levels and more, to build a comprehensive healthcare plan that will help you make achievable and impactful changes to your everyday life.
Why do you need lifestyle modification?
According to a WHO report, chronic diseases are the result of a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental and behavioural factors. The report identifies rapid unplanned urbanization, unhealthy diets, sedentary work habits, stressful environments, alcohol consumption, active and passive smoking, and a lack of physical activity as the drivers of non-communicable diseases today.
Much of this ill-health can be avoided, delayed, or at least managed through lifestyle modifications. With individually tailored changes made to their lifestyle, patients can protect themselves from the occurrence of issues such as obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and others.
After a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Aiyer will make recommendations that are tailored for you. This may include some or all of these:
- Nutrition advice and diet
- Weight management
- Herbal and dietary supplements
- Smoking or other substance de-addiction
- Specific exercise, based on the patient’s needs
