World Brain Day 2016

In the contemporary world, one out of every three aged individuals is suffering from some or the other kind of neurological disease. On World Brain Day 2016, it is important to raise awareness to stay prevented from the neurological diseases. All the brain diseases in the world are responsible for causing the handicap. A lot of this can be prevented with the greater level of awareness and education. Some of the most common neurological conditions in Pakistan are dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s, etc. Mostly, aged population is affected by these diseases.

An awareness seminar was organized by the Pakistan Society of Neurology (PSN) to celebrate World Brain Day 2016. This seminar highlighted that how common people are generally unaware of all the very common neurological diseases. In order to make sure that older population of Pakistan is well, brain health should be given importance both socially and economically.

Early diagnosis of neurological diseases and their treatment can help in relieving their symptoms and slow the progression of diseases, reducing disability and improving the quality of the individual. Unfortunately, as soon as the neurological disease progresses in a human body, the symptoms become more severe. Thus, they should be immediately noticed and considered.

In order to eradicate even the slightest chances of neurological disorders, one should stay away from hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, obesity and use of drugs. A healthy lifestyle should be adopted that consist of regular exercise, balanced diet, and problem solving through critical thinking. The more your brain works, the healthier it stays!
