7High-risk Nutritional PracticesThe Amish have a trust issue with pariahs and won't look for assistance from heath-mind suppliers that they don't have the foggiest idea (Wickwire, 2006).Filipino culture considers body as a vessel and should be washed. they would flush it is by sweating, retching, removing gas, or having an overwhelming menstrual dying (McBride, nd).Reluctance of Arabic women for screening programs places them high risk for diseases like cervical cancer, breast cancer. High emphasis is given to son in Arabic and Hindu culture so there is early reproduction in women in young age and high fertility rate as compared to people of other group like American, Chinese.ConclusionReading about different cultural heritage I found this topic to be very interesting and knowledgeable. I found cultural influence and religious practices have high influence on health risk behavior of an individual. Different cultures have their own belief regarding healthcare. I found birth, death ritual and nutritional practices are given high priority by all culture. Ifind it amazing how every single one has tremendous religious influence. In America diversity of population resides so it is very important to develop cultural competency by health care providers. Our teaching and health care will be fruitful only if we are able to convince the patient in the way that is culturally acceptable to them .
