The world is going through unprecedented times, and consequently the focus on wellness has witnessed a humungous spike. This spike is both on the demand and the supply side. There is a sudden sense of urgency among the consumers to adopt healthier lifestyle. QNET and the wellness industry are keen on coming up with newer products to cater to the needs created by novel situations. We find ourselves vulnerable in many walks of life. The stress of managing our lives during these tough times has made the adage ‘A sound mind in a sound body’ all the more significant.
The paradigm of ‘normal’ is changing and the onus is on all of us to do everything we can to protect our health. In a way, the current pandemic and its effects on our lives have become a wake-up call to manage our health and we simply cannot afford to ignore it.
How the Meaning of ‘Health’ Has Evolved Over Time
In 1948, the World Health Organisation (W.H.O) defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. In a stark contrast, a research firm recently defined health as “the ability of the human body to adapt to new threats and illnesses”.
Our knowledge of how our bodies function is constantly altering our perception of wellness. As we understand the human body more profoundly, we are beginning to appreciate the subtle relationship between mental and physical health. For example, depression is triggered by a poor gut health.
Today, wellbeing is all about becoming aware of ourselves and making smart choices in our everyday lives. Choices that help us live a more fulfilling life and achieve our fullest potential. Wellness is no longer just a state of being. It’s a dynamic process characterised by adapting ourselves to new situations and challenges. Wellness is not just about fighting new diseases but emerging stronger, both individually and collectively.
At the heart of it all, lies the wellness industry.
The Wellness Industry During the Current Times – Trends and Forecast
Various research institutions, government bodies, and other organisations have come up with a wide range of studies over the past few months that project the wellness industry to play a crucial role in the coming years. As a result, they expect a huge demand for healthcare products. Here are some factors that support this premise:
1. Growth in consumption of organic food:
With toxic elements such as Lead and Arsenic invading our food chains due to soil and water pollution, and the increasing use of fertilisers and pesticides, the food we consume is becoming more of threat to our health. With a shift towards organic farming, the wellness industry is negating this development. Organic foods – from cereals and vegetables to beverages and poultry, will no longer be just a fad but an integral part of our lives.
2. A huge splurge on health supplements:
Health supplements have evolved a lot over the years, both in terms of scope and quality. Today, health supplements find a wide range of applications – from providing essential nutrients to managing and preventing a host of ‘lifestyle’ diseases. Advances in science and technology have also played a huge role in enhancing the quality of these products. The focus is now on extracting bio molecules from natural sources as opposed to artificial synthesis of chemicals in test tubes. Experts believe that all these developments will result in a significant increase in demand for health supplements
3. Building immunity – the new mantra of wellbeing:
Poor dietary habits, sedentary lifestyle, and presence of toxic elements in our diet all have a major bearing on our immunity systems and the effects are there for everyone to see. Whether it’s the age-old common cold or the more recent Coronavirus, a healthy immune system can go a long way in minimising the severity of infections. It’s no surprise then that scientists are betting big on wellness products that aim to boost the immune system. Even the governments are recommending steps that promote a stronger immune system as a part of their guidelines to fight the novel virus.
4. The rise of alternative medicine:
For several centuries, medicinal practices such as Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine have been successful in promoting overall health. Wellness companies have come up with several products by extracting the active bio-molecules from the ingredients of these medicine systems. As a result, the consumption of these products is expected to soar in the coming days.
5. Focus on preventive habits and other proactive measures:
The wellness and healthcare sector has an array of products that help in developing preventive and proactive habits for healthy lifestyle. Products such as natural sweetening agents that replace refined sugar and rich sources of anti-oxidants that help fight free-radical damage have become exceptionally popular.
