Health isn’t just the absence of disease…it’s time to prioritise your health.
Think about how busy your life is.
You have a core group of high priorities:
- Your job
- Your education
- Your family
- Your social life
Where do you and your health come on this list?
Clearly, within this group of priorities, there is only so much you can allocate your attention to, and usually the most important things receive the majority of your day-to-day attention. These are the things that, if left undone, can grow and become problems for you later. Should not one of these things be your wellness? Ask yourself:
- Are you getting enough sleep?
- Are you fitting in some exercise?
- Are you managing your stress?
- Are you eating properly?
One guaranteed way of something grabbing your attention quickly and rise to the top of your priority list is a health problem that actively begins causing you issues or pain – or something that threatens to become a real problem. At that point, you may become motivated to take action, and everything else falls by the wayside. You haven’t got time to get ill.
But why let it get to that point? Why not take action before it becomes a serious problem? This is where seeing a doctor like me, The Primal Doctor, who is a Functional Medicine practitioner, could really benefit you. A type of doctor who promotes wellness, who can help both prevent disease occurring in the first place and treat long-term illness.
Take the first step in reclaiming your health and book an appointment.
The Primal Doctor offers the following core services for you and your body.
The main aim is to address and treat the root causes of chronic disease and illness, not just treat the symptoms of it. Achieve better health outcomes and stay healthier for longer.
What we eat is critical to how healthy we remain and how successful our exercise goals are. A good diet can help people remain free of disease, as well as having a positive influence on body composition.
More and more research is coming to light how good gastrointestinal health is vital to a person’s overall wellbeing, and that an unhealthy digestive tract can contribute to a large number of illnesses.
We all know that managing stress levels is important…so why do so many of us ignore this advice and do nothing about it?? Stress is not just psychological; it can be physical, from sleep disruption and inflammation too.
Heal your gut, reclaim your health!
Do you ever consider the health of your gut? The bacteria that reside within it (it’s microbiome)? The importance of these is becoming increasingly recognised in modern medicine. Do you consider your thyroid health, or the effect of stress has on your adrenal glands? Even if you appear outwardly healthy, exercise and work out, are you physiologically healthy? Are all your internal organs and systems functioning normally? I can help you see if they are.
There is little point looking great on the outside, but all of your internal systems are dysfunctional. It’s like having the outward appearance of Ferrari, with the engine of a go-kart. There are millions more who see themselves as healthy, but are worried about their future health, or perhaps feel underserved by conventional health care. The NHS is under increasing pressure (news article). I am not a replacement for your GP, but I can give you the time and attention to detail that you need to begin your healing journey.
Health is not just the absence of disease. It is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. It is the ability to live your life to the full, being robust and flexible in the face of changing demands.
You give time to everything and everyone but yourself. Perhaps it’s about time that you prioritised your health. Your health is an investment, not an expense.
