It’s Time to Prioritize Your Health

We take care of many things throughout our lives. Car, house, pets, kids, spouses, parents, grandparents, job … the list goes on and on. So, why don’t you prioritize taking care of your health? 

Most of us want to live a long and healthy life. Unfortunately, many people wait until something serious happens to start getting serious about health. 

Going for an annual checkup is good to rule out certain illnesses, but many of us go through life not feeling very good and not able to figure out why. Fatigue, digestive issues, skin issues, poor mental health, and insomnia are some of the common complaints we get from patients. The modern healthcare system is not always able to help resolve these symptoms. We’ve all experienced going to a doctor and meeting with them for five minutes (if you’re lucky) and feeling like they didn’t take you seriously.

One of the benefits of coming to an integrative clinic like Vida Hormone Therapy & Integrative Health is that your initial consultation with the doctor is a solid one hour. This is important for the doctor to really get to know you and learn about your symptoms. After this initial consultation, the doctor recommends a treatment plan. 

While prevention is key for preventing serious illnesses like metabolic syndrome and others, it’s never too late to start making changes for your overall health and wellness. In fact, our treatment plans can greatly help to improve your quality of life. 

What is metabolic syndrome? Metabolic syndrome is a combination of conditions that can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Excess weight, sedentary lifestyle, insulin resistance, age, and other conditions can cause metabolic syndrome. This is a very serious health risk and Dr. Lee and Dr. Granados are passionate about helping patients prevent or reverse these symptoms through working on balancing hormones, blood sugar regulation and integrative medicine. 

Here are some more tips for making your health a priority in your life:

  • Exercise: Even light exercise like walking or yoga is good for your overall health.
  • Focus on whole foods: A “low sugar spiker” and low inflammatory diet are essential 
  • Get some shut eye: Sleep is a very important part of health and wellness. If you are struggling to get a good night’s sleep, be sure to let the doctor know in your consultation.
  • Schedule your initial consultation: Our team at Vida offers a variety of treatments to help with both inner and outer health.
