When we talk about ecology, we must also talk about health, because one does not go without the other.
(El) Planeta sana means: the planet heals.
Our Earth has all the ingredients for all of us to be healthy.
This is why it is so important to protect our planet. By protecting it, we actually protect our health.
The earth will continue to exist, but we cannot live on a hostile planet.
Today there are many diseases that we do not yet know much about.
It is not known where they come from, but it is very possible that the environment is involved.
Moreover, there are many diseases caused by air pollution, but not only this: also by the water we drink, the food we eat and produce, the environment we create and the lifestyles we follow, whether in our personal or professional lives.
All these factors can lead us to develop allergies, intolerances, breathing difficulties, cancer… as well as mental health problems.
We can see how the loss of biodiversity impacts the emergence of viruses, especially zoonoses such as the Coronavirus.
In fact, people who suffer from long Covid have pathologies that closely resemble autoimmune diseases, such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, or any other form of chronic disease.
We are also seeing how the most vulnerable among us are less likely to get away with a virus of this type.
It is therefore important to protect these people and make the population aware of the existence of all these chronic diseases which are often invisible and yet have a huge impact on the quality of life of those who suffer from them.
Raising awareness allows for more research, less stigma, and greater acceptance in everyday life.
Let’s remember that even though we are healthy today, we may not always be healthy. Nobody is immune to the risks of life like illness or accidents. When we help fragile people, we also help ourselves. That’s why we’ll be talking a lot about inclusion and integration on this site – so that people with visible / invisible disabilities or chronic illnesses can find their place in society and shake off the exclusion, indifference and lack of understanding or empathy.
Another important point: mental health
We don’t talk about it enough. Mental health can deteriorate as a result of physical illness, our social environment, and factors in the environment that prevent us from living life to the full, as for example confinements and restrictions.
This is what we want to talk about in this section.
You can already check out the World Travel Able blog where we have written a few articles on this topic.
We will then talk about the following themes in this section or on our Planet’Mag:
- Physical health
- Psychological and emotional health
- The balance between personal and professional life
If you yourself suffer from an invisible disease or disability and would like to talk about it, even anonymously, please do not hesitate to contact us.
