What is a Wellness Consultation?
People often ask us, “What is wellness? And where do I start?” The answer is different for everyone, but you can bet that “wellness” encompasses many factors, including feeling “well”… that is, NOT tired, unmotivated, achy, anxious, constipated, itchy, etc. However, the absence of symptoms is not the only definition and not the only criteria.
You don’t have to be “sick” to experience a decrease in wellness. Personal differences between people, including age, weight, gender, diet, lifestyle, genetics, medication, stress, and more all affect the body’s state of wellness. Those same factors also affect the potential for chronic disease and quality of life.
Most people know when they are sick with a virus or other common infection due to recognizable symptoms. But what about when something just doesn’t feel the same anymore? Maybe you have less energy, lack motivation, struggle to maintain weight, loss of muscle tone, lower libido, or poor sleep. Or, maybe you just had a physical and were told your lab values put you at risk for a metabolic health issue like diabetes or heart disease.
All of the above could be considered “normal” signs of aging and justified by your family history and/or lifestyle. But why would you settle for normal? Those normal and expected symptoms can be delayed, reduced, and often corrected with proper wellness planning and execution.
The Wellness Consultation process at FreshSkin is personal and well thought-out as it relates specifically to just you. We carefully consider your concerns, your lifestyle, family history, and health goals. We uncover the underlying reasons related to declining health and educate on how to prevent and reverse the damage. Through the use of personalized assessments, custom lab work, and expert research, our process is designed to discover and deliver a legitimate path to optimal health and wellness.
