PADANG, NETRALNEWS.COM – Ambassador of the Social Security Provider (BPJS) of Health Ade Rai, a body builder, suggests the implementation of healthy lifestyle is actually easy and cheap because if someone is sick then the cost one incurred to heal is much more expensive.
Ade Rai said when a person is experiencing kidney failure he should undergo hemodialysis, the cost is around IDR1.4 million. He is required to have the treatment twice a week until being healed. According to him healthy is not a goal but a requirement, because when a person is healthy he can work, give goodness to the people and create works.
"Looking for health while still owning it is easy and cheap but when it has gone it becomes expensive and difficult to obtain and not necessarily recovered," said Ade Rai.
He likened the pain is like someone who has fallen then the stairs drop on him because in addition to discomfort, one also needs to pay to get back healthy.
"When a woman buys expensive things it is considered consumptive, whereas there is a much more consumptive when people are sick [they] willingly spend any money to get health," said Ade Rai as quoted by Antara, Thursday (04/20/2017).
Ad Rai added so far the cause of the pain is two things, something that comes from outside such as accidents and chronic diseases caused by self-indulgence. "Most people get sick because of their own behavior, if someone says that [because of] age factor it is actually due to treatment when young, if from the beginning [one] implements the right lifestyle [he] will reap health in old age," he said.
He gave the analogy of ancient vehicles which have a high value because it is well cared for by the owner as well as the human body. Therefore, while still healthy it is much easier to apply a good lifestyle to prevent disease.
According to Ade Rai, currently a lot of disorder that occur are obese or overweight, so that the body organs work harder. The key to a healthy life is to select foods that go into the body because if all come in like a house it will cause a lot of garbage coming in.
"Then increase physical activity by exercising regularly as well as enough and quality resting," concluded Ade Rai. (*)
