The problem

“Mental ill-health has become one of the leading challenges for governments and businesses alike, as record numbers of people grapple with loss, profound changes to their living and working environments, concerns about the future, and increasingly polarised and politicised societies…. The prevalence of mental health conditions in the Discovery Health Medical Scheme (the largest open medical scheme in South Africa) has increased from 10.6% in 2017 to12.5% in 2021 – a 19% increase.”  Adrian Gore Chief Chief Executive Officer of Discovery Limited.

The consequences

Our emotions impact our physical health, more than we realise. Think for a moment, how we feel when we’re stressed or anxious. You might even feel the butterflies or a knot in your stomach just thinking about it, Hence, your anxiety can give you digestive or gut distress. This is not new knowledge, Traditional Chinese Medicine have known it for more than 2000 years.

Complications linked to mental illness include:

  • Poor gut health –“all disease begins in the gut”, weekend immune system so our bodies have a hard time resisting infections.
  • Unhappiness and decreased enjoyment of life.
  • Abuse of tobacco, alcohol and drugs.
  • Financial problems
  • Heart disease and other medical conditions.
  • Anxiety about job performance relationships and interactions with co-workers.
  • Absenteeism and presenteeism
  • Lack of focus and poor work performance.
