2018 is officially under way, and with the new year comes reflection and excitement for new changes ahead. For many, the new year can be a great time to set personal intentions for improving various aspects of one’s health, whether for physical health, mental health, or emotional health. While losing weight is commonly considered to be the most popular New Year goal, not every health intention needs to be centered around weight loss or a number on a scale. Ditch resolutions that may be unrealistic and that lack a concrete plan on how they will be seen through to completion. Are you looking for intentions you can set for the upcoming year to improve your mental, emotional, and physical wellness? These intentions may be the perfect ones for you to try. They’re simple, easily customizable for your own life, and will leave you feeling happier and healthier all year long. Consciously reflect each day about what you are grateful for. “Stop and smell the roses” is a saying we’ve all heard a thousand times, but it holds a sentiment that when practiced can bring both your mind and body significant health benefits. This year, make it an intention to consciously reflect each day on the little things that happened for which you are thankful. You can do this in many different ways- whether it’s by taking a minute to jot down a few things in a journal, or by making the effort to tell people why you are grateful for them in your life. Expressing daily gratitude not only improves your mood, but also significantly improves your physical health as well. Need proof? Here are 3 science-backed reasons why you should commit to practicing daily gratitude to help to boost your overall health. Go meatless, just one day a week. We’re all about promoting healthy, well-rounded diets, and we know that there’s no one way of eating that works for everyone. However, one thing we can all agree on is that incorporating more veggies into your diet can bring about big health changes. Skipping the meat in favor for produce-packed meals just once a week is a tiny change with big impacts and implications. Not only will you be making an impact on the environment, but you’ll also benefit your health. Want to learn more? Here are 7 reasons to go meatless even for just one day a week– and some delicious meal ideas to get your creative cooking juices flowing. Ditch the diet- and focus on eating the rainbow. Thankfully, the conversation around dieting has made a dramatic shift to one around mindful and intuitive eating, moderation, including nutrient dense foods, and steering clear of labeling foods as “good” or “bad.” Forget counting calories, and instead focus on creative ways to pack fruits and vegetables from all colors of the spectrum into your diet. Not only will you be getting a wider range of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, but you’ll get to expand outside of your comfort zone. You may find delicious new foods and meals that become staples in your kitchen.

iDHS.HealthWise Supports World Antibiotics Awareness Week Since the discovery of Antibiotics, they have been a cornerstone of medicine and serve a major purpose in the treatment and cure of infectious diseases in humans and animals. However, Antibiotic resistance is increasing globally, this means that we are all at risk of serious infections because even common antibiotics would no longer work. We support WHO and other Global and Local Organisations in promoting the responsible prescribing and use of antibiotics to help curb the increasing resistance of microbes like bacteria to antibiotics. What is Antibiotic Resistance? Is the low or complete inability of antibiotics to treat various infections for which they are prescribed due to their persistent or regular misuse and overuse in humans and animals. This results in the microbes (like bacteria, virus, fungi, protozoa) developing strains which become resistant to antibiotics drugs which become ineffective, a trend which is growing globally. What Causes Antibiotic Resistance? Excessive and unneccessary use of Antibiotics - Overuse of antibiotics inluding without a diagnosis from a qualified medical practitioner, use for conditions where they have no effect like for colds, flu, coughs and so on. Over prescribing of any anitibiotic by a qualified medical practitioner for instance for an extended period, in excess of the what is recommended in standard practice. Not completing the course of antibiotics which are correctly prescribed by a qualified medical practitioner because you feel better.   Why is Antibiotic Resistance  Such a Global Threat? Imagine a world where antibiotics no longer work .  Microbes like bacteria and viruses would readily spread and evolve into even more dangerous strains.  The simplest infections can easily degenerate into a more serious one which would lead to more readily spread of infection and more deaths.  Everyone would be at risk, including those who are ordinarily considered 'healthy'.   What Can We do to Stop this from Happening? Healthcare practitioners and workers must strive to follow global standards for antibiotic prescribing and best practice. Healthcare practitioners should avoid prescribing antibiotics for extended periods of time. Individuals MUST refrain from taking un-prescribed antibiotics even when they feel that symptoms are similar. Individuals MUST avoid taking antibiotics given to them by someone else. Individuals should seek advise and obtain a prescription from a qualified medical practitioner if they think antibiotics are needed. Individuals should ask their medical practitioner whether an antibiotic is needed particularly where diagnosis is for common colds, flu, cough. When antibiotics are prescribed, ensure you complete the course, even if you feel better or fully recovered.

Self-medication is a plague that is gradually becoming a major global health issue. This is defined as the intake of drugs without a prescription from a doctor. These medicines are often referred to as ‘over the counter’ or ‘non-prescription’, and are found in pharmacies, supermarkets and other outlets. In most parts of Africa, you come across people selling these drugs by the roadside, or even on a bus. Self-medication might seem harmless, but we all need to consider the potential side effects it could cause on our health, thereby affecting our life. Self-medication can lead to drug addiction, allergy, habituation, worsening of ailment, incorrect diagnosis and dosage, or even disability and pre-mature death.  People take drugs without the prescription of a doctor for a number of reasons. While some aim for a reduction in the time and cost of clinical consultation, others simply trivialize illnesses and resort to self-medication. Other factors could be due to personal insecurities and fear of job loss due to diagnosed disease, mental illness, quick relief of pain, depression or even ignorance. Even when you think your symptoms or health issues are insignificant, if they are persistent, learn to seek help from a doctor. Technology has now brought access to doctors and hospitals into the palms of our hands. If you are considering visiting a health-care professional at your convenience and in the comfort of your home or office, then you should contact us at to see a Dr or Healthcare practitioner NOW.
