Importance of preventative medicine
Heart disease and diabetes account for 7 out of 10 deaths. This is why healthy habits and regular health screening are essential. Eating healthy, exercising, and not smoking helps individuals to stay healthy, minimize the effects of disease, or avoid certain diseases altogether.
Another great benefit of practicing preventive medicine is low medical costs. At least 75% of total yearly costs go towards preventable illness.
A doctor who has resources on hand and a compassionate spirt are great preventative medicine physicians. However, motivation of the individual is one of the main keys to successful preventative medicine.
