World Health Day 2023

Health - a word we are all so familiar with. A word that may bring up many different mental pictures and feelings in all of us. Life pushes and pulls us in so many different directions. 

Unfortunately, the reality is that we have so many responsibilities that force us to shift our health down on the list of priorities. At the same time, though, all our top priorities and responsibilities require our health. Every day we face a difficult but crucially important balance of priorities. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) was founded in 1948. This year, on the 7th of April, they celebrate their 75th anniversary. The WHO was founded to promote worldwide health since it is such a crucial aspect of society. 

As would be appropriate, the WHO probably has the best definition of health in describing it as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” 

In other words, if you say someone is healthy, it means that they are not sick, don’t have any disease condition, and should not be overweight, smoke, drink excessive amounts of alcohol, or have high stress levels. They should also be physically active, eat a healthy, nutritious, natural diet, sleep enough, and have a good mental state.

The list of criteria implied in the definition of health above may seem to set unattainably high standards. Who has the luxury or time to focus on all the aspects needed to be fully healthy? We agree ensuring we are fully healthy is not easy. That is why we at BioCertica have made it our goal to make healthy living a little easier by taking some of the guesswork out of the equation. 

Looking at our diet alone, an essential aspect of our health, we need a long list of micronutrients for which the range of supplements on the market is extensive and confusing. Then there are the macronutrients which are our energy sources. The different diet plans and opinions in public regarding our macronutrient needs are more than overwhelming. 

BioCertica tests your genetic makeup to show you which nutrients your body may need more or less of, what exercise will be most beneficial for you, what medication to use for best results, what symptoms to be on the lookout for, and more. Throw away all the conflicting advice out there and narrow the focus on what your own body needs for optimal health.

Personalized wellness at your fingertips: Unlock your DNA and take the guesswork out of living your best life. Know what to eat, what supplements to take, what exercises to do, and what medicine to take. Take the quiz here.
