General Health and Wellness Exams
Embracing well-being involves a personal commitment to physical, emotional, and spiritual balance and wellness. At the core of this life affirming action is the belief that we are worthy and deserving of being the best of who we are.
Most of us start on this journey because we are:
- Sick and tired of being sick and tired — Experiencing multiple physical symptoms (tired/low energy, gaining weight, feeling irritable, sleep changes) that affect our quality of life.
- Surprised and scared — Told we have a chronic medical condition (pre-diabetes/diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol) requiring a change in our lifestyle behaviors and use of medication(s).
- Overwhelmed by life circumstances — Usual coping mechanisms no longer helping to keep our hidden feelings at bay causing us to lose sleep and/or feel irritable, angry, depressed or anxious.
- Seeking reassurance – Make sure there is no physical damage from our cumulative life choices and habits.
Often we look to healthcare providers for guidance and support, but may find our needs are unheard or unmet. This may be related to healthcare providers feeling overwhelmed by the increasing number of patients seen per day and/or a historical model of healthcare focused on providing reactive care within a timed visit. While this model of care is appropriate for minor acute illness and injury, it is lacking in evaluating multiple symptoms, assessing health risks, offering proactive preventive care, and providing support for chronic medical conditions.
