What are the components of a health and wellness plan?
A health and wellness plan is designed to provide you with a holistic approach to health and wellness. The components of your health plan include:
This aspect of your plan addresses your medical health. Your doctor performs evaluations like blood tests and physical exams to help determine the status of your general health. Your doctor also discusses your fitness goals and lifestyle choices.
Your doctor provides you with a number of recommendations for services like weight loss and fitness programs that are based on your personal health.
Nutrition plays a major role in long-term health and wellness. Nutrition planning can be used to address conditions like diabetes and hypertension. Your doctor discusses your diet and helps you find ways to make improvements that fit your lifestyle. Your doctor might also have you see a nutritionist to develop a nutritional care plan.
Mental Health and learning
The final component is mental health and learning. Mental health issues can be a major hindrance to living a happy, healthy life. Your doctor discusses your mental health and determines if there is any need for medical intervention.
Many patients benefit from services like psychotherapy as a component of their health and wellness plan.
What if I have a chronic condition?
If you suffer from a chronic condition like allergies or asthma, your doctor can include methods to control or minimize your condition. Chronic conditions like diabetes can even be reversed through consistent exercise, weight loss, and proper nutrition.
