Wellness: trend for the new year

11.5.2021 0

The world of health is constantly changing due to the needs of those who want maximum well-being on all levels: from physical to mental.

The health trend focuses on key concepts such as stress management, hyper-personalizing diagnoses with genetic tests to find the best treatment, a healthier diet that pays special attention to caring for the microbiota, and a global plan to strengthen our immune systems.

Below we describe in detail the health trends of the new season and how they fit into the methods of treatment, rehabilitation and recovery at the Medical Center - Skhidnytsia

  • Strengthening the immune system to protect against viruses

The new reality imposed itself and revealed what has always been a basic need: to have a strong immune system and at any age. It is not surprising that more and more people are going on healthy holidays. It's all about combining relaxation with health. A holiday in an ideal environment to start a comprehensive health plan (nutrition, exercise, clinical care) and strengthen the immune system against external aggression. On the other hand, this new reality we are talking about also implies social distance and a greater need for privacy.
The sequencing of the whole genome has opened a new horizon for adopting the most appropriate treatment for each pathology or health condition that we set ourselves. With a genomic test, the goal is to have as much information as possible about the person to be treated.

  • Healthy nutrition and microbiota care

These are concepts that we have always had and that now have their relevance in a strong impact on demand: to develop nutritional programs that strengthen the immune system, serve as a supplement to fight stress and anxiety, use fresh local and seasonal foods or help improve our quality of life by affecting aspects such as rest or digestion. It's all about incorporating healthy habits and customs into our way of eating. And the trend is to find a specific place to look after the gut microbiota. Gut microbiota research provides three main functions: Nutritional and metabolic functions, including energy recovery, vitamin production and beneficial effects on calcium and iron absorption in the colon. Protective functions, preventing the invasion of infectious agents.

  • Modulation functions of the immune system.

According to an article published in the scientific journal Nutrients, "diet and lifestyle can have significant and far-reaching effects on human health, and we have shown that microbes living in the gastrointestinal tract play an important role in mediating these effects."

  • Mental health and stress and anxiety management

The new scenario proposed by the virus control guide has a decisive impact on mental health and how we cope with new situations of stress and anxiety. The aim is to conduct an in-depth diagnosis to identify those internal and external factors that cause stress in each person's daily life. Identify possible aspects such as frustration, loss of control, difficulties with relaxation, pessimism, etc. The result should be the restoration of emotional and physical health, which increases resistance to stress. In this sense, it has been clear to Medical Center - Skhidnytsia since its inception that training the mind is fundamental to achieving complete well-being. Practices such as yoga, meditation techniques, breath control or mindfulness are fundamental to any health plan.
