What does Wellness mean to you?
Does it mean being healthy, being happy, not taking medications, able to do anything physically that you
want to do, being less stressed? I invite you to take a moment and think about it. Wellness doesn't come
in a bottle. There is no magic bullet. It's a lifestyle.
The dictionary definition of Wellness is:
"The quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort."
The journey to wellness takes time, discipline, and consistency. It's when your internal environment is in harmony with your external environment. Ask yourself: Do you have digestion issues? Do you have sleep issues? Do you have problems with concentration or have irregular moods or times when you are low and can't seem to get out of it? Are you running on full tilt, doing for everyone else and ignoring your needs? Do you feel good in your skin or do you feel bloated or more aged that you would like?
These are just a few examples of your body telling you that something is not in harmony. Harmony is a balance not a number. The body is highly equipped to repair and regulate itself providing it has the right fuel and the right stimulus.
As a Functional Medicine practice we look at things differently. We look for and address the root cause of your issues so we can provide more sustainable outcomes for lasting relief. We will ask about your lifestyle habits, nutrition, exercise regimen, stress management techniques, familial history, and when and where your symptoms arose. Then, we will construct a plan together to help you move forward toward a more harmonious healthy lifestyle.
If you're tired of not being listened to or just given medications for what you're going through, let us help. Nothing that's easy will last, and nothing that lasts will be easy. There could be various unhealthy habits that have finally taken it's toll. But the good news is that we are there to help guide you, support you, and cheer you on. First, it takes a decision from you to see your lifestyle habits with a new perspective and the desire to make a change.
