Prevention & Wellness

Prevention is the best cure.

Wellness goes beyond treating health issues as they arise. Wellness is about creating and maintaining optimal health in all areas of your life; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Prevention is a result of wellness because by moving towards health, you are moving away from disease. In choosing health, you avoid the suffering and cost of disease.

Would you like to decrease your chances of developing common diseases that occur in older age? Are there any diseases that run in your family that you’d like to address proactively?  Are you at risk for certain conditions because of your age, gender, diet, or lifestyle? 

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, you can benefit from naturopathic care focusing on wellness and prevention.  General wellness protocols support your entire body and prevent symptoms and disease on a broad scale.  By considering important factors like your age, gender, family history, and other disease risk factors, your physician will develop a treatment plan specifically for you. Wellness and preventative care can decrease the risk of developing:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Dementia and cognitive decline
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Specific diseases of childhood, the elderly, men, or women

Even more than preventing illness and disease, wellness will increase your quality of life.  Wellness patients report:

  • More energy without stimulants
  • Better sleep
  • Lower stress levels
  • Elevated moods
  • More positive relationships

Wellness and preventative care aren’t easy to maintain on your own, which is why we’re here to help.  We can teach you how to eat a healthy diet, help you set and achieve realistic exercise goals, explain what screening tests are recommended for you and why, and support lifestyle changes that can make a big difference.  Invest in your health today and reap the rewards for the rest of your life.
