Make Your Health a Priority for 2013

So you’ve decided that THIS is the year you are going to get healthy. Your first thought is “I’ll start a new diet and exercise program and that will do it.”

There are so many parameters involved in getting your body to function in it’s optimum state and reduce risk factors, that although your first thought was a good one, how about we take it several steps further.

 

When you go to see your doctor, you are usually allotted about 15 minutes of time. You get the most urgent issue touched upon and will most likely leave with a prescription or a referral to a specialist. Now, what if you had a full hour of a doctors’ time and you  were able to discuss all of your concerns. What if that doctor asked the right questions and sent you for a full set of tests. Then once all of your results came back, you went back in to see that doctor for at least another 30 minutes, (more if needed) and received a full report of where your health and risks are at this point in your life. Then this doctor prescribes exactly what you need, makes suggestions on what lifestyle changes are necessary to truly live your best life and then continues to follow up with you throughout the year, re-testing and checking in to see how you are doing.

Sound like a dream world? It’s simply a private medical health consultation.
