PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

Why lifestyle choices matter and early interventions work

“Prevention is better than cure” is a familiar phrase coined in 1500. It has a simple meaning that can be attributed to many aspects of our lives. Small everyday choices from the food we eat to the company we keep help to shape our future in ways we sometimes can and can’t predict. It’s natural to want to live in the moment and enjoy life today, but at times we need to take a step back, look at the bigger picture and ask ourselves, is it worth it, especially when it comes to our health.

What starts off as 1 drink in the evening can turn into 2 which can slowly creep up to a whole bottle.

Before you know it you might struggle to remember your last day without a drink. This is a story we hear often, but with the right tools and support, early intervention can change the trajectory of people’s lives for the better.
