Traditional Chinese health beliefs adopt a holistic view emphasizing the importance of environmental factors in increasing risk of disease. Through public health education, even simple things such as wearing a flu mask in particularly affected areas, or knowing when to take vaccines for a particular illness that is prominent at that time of the year, always proves very effective in limiting the number of people affected annually.
The good and bad experiences of one’s life shape one’s emotional and mental health. Eating vegetables, fruits and meat with bread or rice is a healthy nutrition, and it is a key to lead a healthy life. Some have sleep problems due to physical stress or condition and others suffer because of mental or emotional cause.
Mental illness impairs your ability to perform routine tasks, foster healthy relationships, or cope with anger or stress. If there is a division of Yin Yang or if Yin Yang cannot maintain unification, it must result in the termination of life. According to studies and research, social interactions play an important role in improving mental and physical health.
Environmental threats to health are ultraviolet radiation in sunlight, air and water pollution, lead in old house paint, and second hand smoke in indoor air. Smoking can cause lung cancer, complicate pregnancy, heart disease and many other diseases. Overeating can lead to obesity, which puts you at a risk for heart disease and diabetes, in addition to creating an unhealthy body-image.
Although health care practitioners around the world recognize that mental illness is in reality a group of disorders that cause serious disturbances in thinking, feeling, and relating, a good understanding of their causes has still not been established.
