Medically speaking, health is not just the absence of disease. It is a state of complete well-being in the physical, mental and social realms. This is quite difficult to achieve if we turn our perspective to reality, and we rarely have complaints, no pain whatsoever, and no disturbing thoughts and emotions. The truth is that we live in a constant battle between health and illness, and it is up to us to decide if we want to win.
Our daily decisions play an important role in this constant battle between health and disease, which is why modern medicine has focused on prevention strategies to improve the chances of living a healthy life longer. Even so, it’s impossible to be disease-free, and given our current awareness of the importance of prevention, people tend to worry too much about their symptoms and generally get the wrong idea when they read inaccurate information on the web.
FitnessUp has understood this new health trend and, trying to contribute to a proper understanding of health and disease, provides information for patients who are concerned about their health and that of their loved ones. FitnessUp is a website dedicated to providing the latest research and data available in the medical field to make a correct and accurate diagnosis. However, it does not encourage patients to disregard medical opinions after a thorough physical examination and individual evaluation by a licensed physician.
