Life is moving faster than ever. As the world becomes glocal, people are drawn to achieve more than ever. But what is the cost of this achievement? Health! For many this seems like a fairly small price to pay when accounted with immediate returns such as instant gratification. These momentary dopamine (Happy Brain Chemical) surges, which seem to occupy all the space in our minds, have huge repercussions in the long term. The lifestyle choices we are making daily have lead to the surge in many non communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as ‘Lifestyle Diseases’. Common lifestyle diseases are Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Heart Disease, Stroke, Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Chronic Lung Disease, Depression, Many Cancers, Cirrhosis, Nephritis, Back Pain, Headache and many more! Infact there are new diseases on rise because of lifestyle such as ear afflictions due to earphones, smartphone related issues, psychological problems, lifestyle realted infertility problems, Stress Disorders and Musculoskeletal Disorders!
Each year, 15 million people die from a NCD between the ages of 30 and 69 years; over 80% of these “premature” deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
Cardiovascular diseases account for most NCD deaths, or 17.7 million people annually, followed by cancers (8.8 million), respiratory diseases (3.9million), and diabetes (1.6 million).These 4 groups of diseases account for over 80% of all premature NCD deaths.
Numbers in India are more frighetning. India is considered Diabetes Capital with more than 50 million suffering from Type 2 Diabetes and set to reach whooping 87 Million by 2030! Similar huge numbers are there for all lifestyle diseases. Laetst trend of Lifestyle Diseases in our children (1 in 5 children is vunerable) is a wake up call for all us to take action today! We may die old but we are falling sick young! It not only affects our productivity and life enjoyment but also results in a big financial burden.
Most of these are just preventable and simply treatable through scientific Lifestyle Modification. And importantly, you don’t have to wait for any of these to strike and then think of Lifestyle Modification. Even if you are not suffering from any of these, start today with a better lifestyle for a healthy tomorrow!
We need a solution that’s effective and sustainable! It is from this singular thought that KRITAM was born with its focus on lifestyle transformation. KRITAM seeks to help an individual reconnect with Living Healthy without compromising on one’s dreams for life.
The idea of KRITAM is not just to bring about a complete change in daily life but rather give rise to the movement of not ever having to take medicines in the first place. The final motive is to make one self-sufficient enough to never lose control over body and mind.
Anyone above age of 7 can get into Kritam program and achieve ones health and lifestyle goals. You may not be having any disease as of now, or may be genetically prone for certain diseases or may be on the borderline of any disease arena or already suffering and taking medicines for the same. You might have been told by your doctor to change your lifestyle for good health or control of certain disease. Don’t Just Think, Take Action – Kritam is the way of Life!
