Lifestyle Assessment, Health Promotion, and Prevention

Busy lives with many layers of stress and challenge can have an insidious effect on health and wellbeing. A comprehensive, holistic assessment of a patient’s lifestyle identifies areas of concern and leads to the development of a customized lifestyle plan – with emphasis on diet, exercise, and mental and spiritual wellbeing – to promote optimal wellness and vitality. A thorough lifestyle assessment forms the basis of every patient evaluation.

“We can reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them.”
