” Good health is not something we can buy. However, it can be an extremely valuable savings account. “
– Anne Wilson Schaef
At LAB24, we believe that a commitment to good health and well-being should be at the top of the list of your resolutions in 2016. According to WHO, “Just one in 20 people worldwide (4·3%) had no health problems in 2013, with a third of the world’s population (2·3 billion individuals) experiencing more than five ailments, according to a major new analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD)”.
The increasing rate of illness is something that we need to take into consideration. Is it because of a lack of knowledge or awareness? Or is it due to negligence? Either way, it is evident that we as individuals need to start learning more about matters that concern our health & well-being, and take active efforts to ensure that we do not put ourselves at potential health risks in the near future.
So how does one avoid the risk of potential health concerns in the near future? Well this generally involves a process, one that will help you to assess your lifestyle choices and determine if their is a need for a change. However, the starting point of this process is fairly simple – its starts with a blood test.
By taking a blood test, you can essentially determine your health status at present compared to where it should be. This allows you to plan accordingly and make informed decisions based on your health & wellness goals. A blood test can reveal the degree of functionality of internal organs, as well as diagnose any threats that are present due to a family history of illness, or poor lifestyle habits. This solution is highly cost-effective, and gives you an accurate depiction of where you are heading. Not to mention, most Medical Aid Schemes allocate a portion of funds to blood tests – so make sure you get yours done today!
Ask your Doctor to refer you to LAB24 for fast, accurate and reliable blood tests.
Its a new year, with new resolutions but most importantly – its an opportunity for a NEW YOU. It’s About Time!
