What does Whole-Body Wellness Mean for You?

What does Whole Health ..

 “Holistic,” “natural,” and “homeopathy” all seem to be the words on peoples’ tongues these days. We’re entering a new age of integrative healthcare, aiming for whole-body wellness for all. However, people (even those who are usually health-minded!) find themselves confused by concepts thrown out by health publications. What is whole-body wellness, and what does it mean for you?

 Whole-body wellness investigates the multifaceted factors in a person’s life, and aims to balance lifestyle changes, conventional medicine, and complementary services (like mental health or specialist referrals for those with chronic illnesses) in order to optimize an individual’s health and quality of life. This sounds exhausting to many, but wellness is a journey of small yet continuous steps. You cannot change your life overnight — but you can certainly scale a great number of frustrating wellness hurdles, given proper guidance and time.

 You might be wondering what might qualify as guidance, or what place time has in whole health. The best place to start is a real example. Many of our clients once struggled with getting to and maintaining an optimal weight before coming to New York Wellness and MediSpa. We refer such clients to Dr. Jill Baron, a superstar leader in the Take Shape for Life program.

 Remember that you carry your stress with you. We offer on-site massage and chiropractic. Tense muscles can cause headaches, back problems and other painful conditions.

 Treating yourself holistically doesn’t mean you have to dispose of essential medications. In fact, holistic and homeopathic care is ideal when utilized as a complementary therapy in conjunction with your other physicians’ direction in order to meet your unique needs. This equation is the key to whole wellness — aiming for the body to do as much of the work uninhibited, while still managing your conditions with conventional western medicine. Give a well-rounded approach a shot today by contacting us!

Annual Well-Woman Visits Can Save Your Life!

We strongly recommend annual well-woman visits for a number of reasons. Wellness blood panels can detect abnormalities before they become disruptive or even dangerous. Honest discussions about your lifestyle might prompt helpful suggestions on a wide variety of common problems such as ill-managed stress or poor sleeping habits. Otherwise, well-woman visits often include an EKG (they are standard here at New York Wellness and MediSpa.) You may also receive a referral for an annual gynecological exam and relevant preventative diagnostics like mammograms, depending on your age and other factors.

Our center offers many options designed to provide customized support while you are changing your lifestyle for the better. Nutrition and fitness advice through Take Shape for Life is a personalized, physician-guided weight loss program that is a boon to those who struggle with maintaining a healthy weight. We even offer treatments specific to several long-term illnesses such as sleep apnea and asthma care.

Your annual wellness check-up isn’t worth skipping. Allow us to take the work out of your annual — contact us today to learn about your options, and to schedule your appointment for a well-woman exam. We do everything we can to ensure every client is as comfortable as possible, and we only refer to doctors we have personally deemed up to our strident standards. The status of your health should never feel like a mystery. Consider when you can squeeze in your next annual exam, and thank yourself later — you won’t regret peace of mind.

Celebrating Women’s Health Through Awareness

Starting on Sunday, May 11th, National Women’s Health Week begins with a mission: to emphasize the health threats facing women, and to educate both the public and practitioners alike about maladies and/or symptoms that present in women.  Mother’s Day already had us at New York Wellness and MediSpa considering women’s specialized healthcare needs, but National Women’s Health Week really got our cogs turning. We thought it might be prudent to go over one of the biggest health problems that face women today: heart disease.

Heart disease kills one of every four women, meaning it is a serious health threat facing American women. This statistic alone has shaped contemporary protocols for annual examinations, making a yearly EKG standard with most practices. Heart disease can include a wide variety of problems specific to the heart. Coronary artery disease is the most common and bears the highest risk of sudden heart attack. Heart failure and complications from heart arrhythmia can also classify as heart disease.

You can reduce your risks for heart disease in a number of ways. Maintaining a healthy weight and ensuring your blood pressure and cholesterol are no-brainers. However, remember that smoking, diet and activity levels all make a significant difference in your cardiac health as well. If you think you might need assistance with maintaining a healthier lifestyle, New York Wellness and MediSpa have you covered. Between our nutritional guidance and preventive cardiology programs, you will be provided with easy to understand, personalized health plans to keep you feeling your best.

This National Women’s Health Week, we urge our readers to consider the measures you are taking to protect and encourage long-term wellness. We care about each and every person who passes through our doors, and will provide the best care possible for a wide variety  of health concerns. Should you have any questions on how you might best optimize your health, please do not hesitate to contact us!
