4 Trending Health Topics You Should Be Aware Of
With each new year comes innovations in healthcare. Here are some for 2023 you might want to consider and see how they may fit into your wellness lifestyle.
This world is changing as all well know. Here's four trending health topics you need to be aware of for 2023.
1. Telehealth: The Doctor's Office of the Future
According to Accenture, 62% of consumers would occasionally prefer a virtual healthcare option. More and more people are searching for telehealth as the years pass by.
This isn't only because of the increasing fears regarding pandemics and flu spreading abound in society, making it imperative to avoid hospitals and other crowded places. But also because people are busier than ever and looking for quick and easy solutions to all their problems, including health-related ones.
With telehealth, a parent worried about their child's fever or a wife worried about losing sleep due to her snoring husband can quickly contact a helpline on their phone or computer and get advice and suggestions on what to do.
Before they visit the emergency room and clog up the queues there, they can get meaningful feedback on solving the problem at home. Perhaps they could even get some holistic health tips to prevent the issue in the future.
Telehealth allows them easy access to experienced nurses, doctors, and other functional medicine practitioners. This is something that has never been experienced in human history. In the past, access to health care was severely restricted or challenging.
It's definitely due to improved technology and improved access to the internet that has resulted in the boom of telehealth usage. If you haven't tried telehealth services yet, what are you waiting for? It's waiting at your fingertips so you can use it to improve your loved one's health.
2. CBD Products: From Gummies to Vape Liquids
It might seem like CBD products have always been around, considering how pervasive they are now. But they are quite a recent development. Mostly to do with the 2018 Farm Bill, which removed hemp from the list of controlled substances and legalized the possession and cultivation of hemp at the federal level.
Ever since, there has been a major boom in the production of many different CBD products, all of which are lauded for curing various ailments like anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and more.
Many people who were previously wary of CBD products have realized that it's a great addition to any holistic medicine kit. It's a natural way of relieving pain and helping keep the body healthy.
More and more people of all age groups are trying out CBD products now that they realize that CBD products have a minimal level of THC or none at all, making them not psychoactive.
Again, if you haven't dabbled in CBD products yet, CBD oil would be a great place to start. Or there are many edibles to try, like CBD gummies and even CBD kombucha.
3. Personalized Nutrition: Every Body Is Different
Have you noticed that your friend has gone all their life without taking any supplements and is fit as a fiddle? And you are taking half a dozen different supplements to ensure you stay healthy and happy.
Why the difference? Well, as you might already have realized, no matter if you live in the same house and eat the same foods, your body will react entirely differently to the food and environment than someone else.
Everyone's body is unique and works with specific needs and requirements to stay optimal.
That's where personalized nutrition or precise nutrition comes into play. The idea behind this is that food needs to be geared not at the group level but at the individual. Each individual needs to have their nutritional markers checked out. Then a nutrition plan and created precisely for them.
It's meal plans 2.0. And that's where healthcare technology can help you achieve higher levels of health.
4. Mental Health Awareness: Mind Your Mind
Gone are the days when talking about mental health issues was considered taboo and misplaced. We are living in the modern era right now, and considering that mental health will affect 1 in 5 Americans in any given year, mental health awareness must take the forefront in 2023.
This means realizing that mental health issues aren't just something to be brushed aside or something to ignore. Instead, everyone needs to sit down and have a frank conversation about it.
Mental health awareness begins at the individual level, with each American understanding better what the term means and how it can affect children and adults all around them. Ensure you educate yourself on this crucial health topic of 2023 and beyond.
Trending Health Topics to Stay on Top of in 2023
These four trending health topics are here to stay; consider building your awareness and knowledge about and see where they may fit into your healthy lifestyle.
Consider telehealth services, try out CBD products, try eating foods based on a personalized nutrition plan, and become more aware and educated of options for improving your mental health.
