Redefining Disease

Chronic Diseases are defined as conditions that last 1 year or longer. The word ‘disease’ does not sound pleasant, but it is simply a disorder of structure or function. What if we stopped looking at disease as a condition and instead looked at it as a behavior and a “lack of ease”.

In this ‘TEDx Talks’ Video, ‘Dr Rangan Chatterjee’ who is a best-selling author and referred to as the doctor of the future, is changing the way people look at disease!

Thinking of disease as a condition can make us feel powerless, whereas looking at disease as a behavior is empowering, as we have full control of our behavior. If you want to feel empowered and take control of your health, then this video is for you!
