Expert interpretation: where is the pressure of sub-health?

This is not a “new” term: sub-health. It is new because many people know little about it; It is said that it is “not new” because it has long been famous around the world. What is sub-health? What effect does it have on the human body? Is it a disease? What about the close relationship between Sub-health and stress? Perhaps, it is quietly devouring your health, and you don’t know about health care. What many people know is only superficial, how profound?

perspective on “sub-health”

between health and disease: sub-health

We should see through “sub-health”. First of all, let’s make clear what health is. In 1977, the World Health Organization (who) pointed out: “health is not only the absence of disease and physical weakness, but also the perfect state of physical, psychological and social adaptability.” In other words, health means that there is no physical discomfort, mental and spiritual integrity, and social adaptation is good. Disease is a generalization of the understanding of the nature of disease, is the destruction of the body’s homeostasis and the damage of metabolism, function and structure caused by pathogenic factors, is the life process of the body fighting against pathogenic factors and damage through anti-damage response, and changes with the continuous improvement of human understanding of disease and the development and change of disease itself.

Sub-health is a state between health and disease. Including no clinical symptoms or mild symptoms, but with potential pathological information. It has a wide connotation and is the low-quality state and experience of people between health and disease in terms of physical, mental and emotional aspects. Also known as the third state, also known as gray state, pre disease state, etc. The latest research on sub-health found that 70% of human diseases are related to genetic abnormalities. When the human body is in a sub-health state, its risk of disease will be greatly increased.

sub-health is a pathological state

Pathological state refers to the pathological process or the consequence of the pathological process that develops very slowly. Therefore, sub-health is a pathological state.

Various factors may be the cause of sub-health

The causes of sub-health are as follows: psychological factors, lifestyle, environmental factors, social factors and physiological factors.

Sub-health is most closely related to psychological factors. At present, the most serious diseases endangering people’s health are no longer biological diseases such as infectious diseases, but psychosomatic diseases related to psychology, environment and society.

A the tremendous pressure in modern society exceeds the psychological endurance of some people, causing a series of psychological discomfort symptoms to the mentally vulnerable. For example, the problem of children’s entrance to school, the problem of children’s employment, the tension between husband and wife, and layoffs. We once randomly selected some people from the sub-health population for a questionnaire survey, and the results showed that 56% of the sub-health population faced some problems. To a certain extent, it explains the correlation between psychological factors and the formation of sub-health.

B. Smoking, drinking, unbalanced diet, improper exercise, sleep overdraft (such as excessive intake of high-fat, high salt food, diet civilization disease) and other lifestyle are also factors causing sub-health. Nowadays, people generally have the problem of irregular life. This situation is related to the nature of the work. A survey on “whether people in sub-health status have dietary preferences” shows that 2 / 3 of the sub-health people surveyed can’t eat fruits every day, and a certain proportion can’t eat vegetables every day, which leads to vitamin deficiency in the body, which is consistent with the international view of sub-health and vitamin deficiency.

C. Environmental factors include noise, electromagnetic radiation, water pollution, overpopulation, poor living environment and poor office environment. Social factors include: increased work pressure, incompetence syndrome, occupational irritability and laid-off anxiety; Dealing with the relationship between colleagues; The gap between the rich and the poor has widened. Physiological factors include: viral infection, endocrine disorders, metabolic abnormalities, immune abnormalities, etc. Do you have any of these symptoms?

Six symptom characteristics that are closely related to sub-health: ① body area: fatigue, dry throat, eye soreness, pain hindering work; ② Life area: poor sleep; ③ Emotional field: psychological emptiness. It is worth mentioning that obesity is a sub-health state in the early stage. More attention should be paid to adolescent obesity. According to the survey, since 1990, the obesity rate of students in Shanghai has been increasing at an average rate of 0.78% every year.

Today’s fierce social development model has brought tremendous pressure to people’s work and life, which is easy to lead to the abnormal physiological function of the body, reduced nervous system function, endocrine disorder, decreased immunity and other sub-health states.

Sub health under pressure: because the pace of work is obviously speeding up and the pressure is increasing, the mood is often in a continuous state of tension. If this tension can be moderate, it is conducive to progress and health. People can be too nervous and worried about work, and their psychological endurance is not strong. Coupled with long-term psychological fatigue, psychological fatigue is suppressed in the heart. Over time, they become depressed and irritable.

The following categories of people are prone to “pressure” on their health: ① people with excessive mental burden; ② Those with heavy mental work; ③ They are those who have a heavy burden of physical labor; ④ People with tense interpersonal relationship and heavy burden; ⑤ People who have been engaged in simple and mechanized work for a long time (lack of communication and stimulation from the outside); ⑥ People under great pressure; ⑦ A person whose life is irregular; ⑧ People with unbalanced diet, smoking and drinking.

In addition to fatigue and discomfort, people in sub-health state will not be in danger of life. However, if encountering a high degree of stimulation, such as staying up late and losing temper, it is easy to die suddenly, that is, “death from overwork”.

“Death from overwork” – is a comprehensive disease. It refers to the destruction of people’s normal work and life rules in the process of working under non physiological conditions, the accumulation of fatigue in the body and the transition to the state of overwork, which increases blood pressure and arteriosclerosis, and then leads to a fatal state. It is the most serious impact of sub-health on human body.

See if you belong to the group prone to death from overwork: ① people with high income who only know how to spend but don’t care about their bodies; ② Enterprising people, especially “workaholics”, often overwork, resulting in physical overdraft and chronic illness; The time from onset to death was less than 1 hour. ③ A person whose family has a tendency to die early and thinks he is healthy.

during sub-health treatment

is western medicine or traditional Chinese medicine more effective in “dealing with” sub-health

In the treatment of sub-health, TCM conditioning is more effective. If the patient has neck, shoulder, waist and leg pain but no obvious organic change, acupuncture and massage of traditional Chinese medicine have obvious effects.

Clinically, there are many patients who come to see doctors for sub-health. The survey shows that the incidence of sub-health in China is between 45% and 70%, and the age of occurrence is mainly between 35 and 60 years old. The characteristics of population distribution are as follows: middle-aged intellectuals, white-collar workers, leading cadres, entrepreneurs, film and television stars are the people with high incidence of sub-health. The sub-health problems of teenagers are worrying, the sub-health problems of the elderly are complex and changeable, and the sub-health problems of special professionals are prominent.

Through our long-term research, we found that traditional Chinese medicine has a certain effect in interfering with sub-health states. Acupuncture, massage, health education and diet therapy in traditional medicine are good intervention methods, which can effectively prevent the transformation of sub-health states into diseases.

major progress and characteristics: treatment methods

In May 2004, with the approval of the State Administration of traditional Chinese medicine, the sub-health center was officially opened in Sichuan integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine hospital, which is a first-class department. Since its establishment, the center now has sub departments such as men’s sub-health, women’s sub-health, pain specialist, sleep specialist, TCM physique identification, psychological consultation, etc., and has formed its own distinctive diagnosis and treatment methods.

For example, the pain specialty of the sub-health center mainly uses acupuncture, physiotherapy, massage and medicine of traditional medicine to treat neck, shoulder, waist and leg pain and bone and joint diseases, and conducts in-depth research on them. The scientific research team of the center is strong and committed to the exploration and clinical application of sub-health.

At present, the center has completed or is undertaking a number of national research topics and projects. In particular, the “infrared thermal imager” technology can identify the potential focus, carry out targeted early intervention, and prevent the transformation into disease. It is believed that the development of medical infrared thermal imaging technology will certainly lead to epoch-making progress in traditional medicine’s intervention in sub-health! We are waiting to see.
