In order to reflect on and analyze how the relationship between health and behavior affects the social determinants of health, I would like to share the analysis based on the latter. Accredited institutions and organizations such as the WHO, consider or identify the social determinants of health in the context where human beings are born, in the life spaces where they develop, as well as in the workplace and in the social system of interactions where the person makes his life Now, the way they do their life, the behavioral actions they carry out, are the ones that in one way or another will affect the health of the human being. Many times we talk about behavior and we do not associate it with health and that is where we must gain in general culture and assimilate that this influences from the moment we obtain, for example, the information from a medical diagnosis. In this sense, people react differently and adopt dissimilar ways to their treatment, they are not always the appropriate behaviors or postures, an issue that directly affects their health and is also associated with the human resources available to deal with the disease health process (Soriano & Jiménez, 2023).
The balance that is achieved between the physical state of health and psychosocial well-being, the best state of health refers to the person. There are behaviors that contribute positively to health, there we find an adequate and balanced diet, the practice of physical activity, avoiding by all means the consumption of toxic substances, the rest that the body requires during sleep hours, avoiding self-medication, among others. However, maintaining this balance based on health, and even more so when suffering from already established diseases, requires an environment that encourages this behavior, as well as people who accompany the transit through life in a healthy way, so that the interaction with the people of the closest and social environment contribute to the positive and not to negative behaviors for health. We are biopsychosocial beings and from there we react and develop (Cereceda, 2022).
That is why nursing within its metaparadigms contains the dialectical relationships between its main concepts (person, environment, health and nurse). In those relationships that occur from theory and practice in nursing, there is integration between patients and nurses for their transformation in the care process to achieve their necessary transformations for their healing and social integration. These relationships between health and disease are currently focused on a paradigmatic vision of holistic care for health care, where the human being must be seen as a whole, not as the simple care of its parts. A human being who, by reacting negatively, influences his health, if he does not take care of his body or attacks it with toxins, in the same way his behavior brings consequences for his health and for those around him.
