Are you wanting to maintain your level of health as you age?
Do you have a family history of illness/disease and want to reduce your genetic risk?
Are you interested in a holistic general health assessment?
It is all too common that we take our health for granted only until we receive a diagnosis, and then we invest loads of time and money into trying to get better. Imagine if this was flipped, and we spent our time and money on maintaining good health?
Many of our clients are not unwell, but rather, they value their health and are seeking professional and trusted guidance on making the best choices to maintain long-term health and vitality. Further to this, many naturopathic clients have a family history of a particular disease or illness and wish to reduce their genetic risk. This approach to health can be defined as preventative medicine, which is one of the key principles that underpins naturopathic philosophy.
Over recent years, healthcare has increasingly focused on disease and pharmaceutical intervention, with a lack of emphasis on health and/or disease prevention.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines ‘health’ in its constitution as ‘a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’. With this in mind, it makes sense to utilise a holistic and integrated approach when achieving and maintaining optimal health. This may include addressing the following:
- Nutrition and exercise
- Sleep and relaxation
- Mindfulness and meditation
- Lifestyle habits
- Environmental factors (toxins, technology, etc.)
- Relationships, friendships and social connections
- Employment, study, volunteering, etc.
- Spiritual practices
At Integrated Wellness Clinic, our Naturopaths and Integrative Doctor can complete a general health assessment that considers all of the above. This often entails thorough case taking, questionnaires, physical assessments, and pathology testing. We utilise a number of advanced pathology tests that provide an extremely comprehensive assessment of body systems. With all of this information, our Naturopaths formulate preventative health plans that can assist you in optimising your current and future health.
If you’re interested in a general health assessment or preventative healthcare, we recommend booking a FREE Naturopathic Assessment Consultation with one of our Naturopaths either in one of our Sunshine Coast Naturopath Clinics ,Brisbane Naturopath Clinic or our Gold Coast Naturopath Clinic.
