Graceful Aging, Prevention, and Health
At Groton Wellness Center we understand the profound importance of informed individualized prevention strategies. Health care is at its most effective when it’s used to prevent rather than treat illness. Ironically, we only know when prevention doesn’t work. If a prevention strategy is truly effective and we don’t become chronically ill, we won’t know if it was the result of our plan or just dumb luck. Regardless, for some the investment in good health makes too much good sense to ignore. There is so much we can do to protect ourselves from the risks for chronic disease. In our toxic environment with our nutrient-depleted diets, not doing so may just be asking for trouble down the line.
Also, compelling advances in the science of epigenetics are validating the holistic healthcare practice of prevention through diet and lifestyle measures. Diet and lifestyle choices really can determine which genes get turned on and which stay quiet. Science now confirms that the interface between a genetic predisposition for disease and the environment (internal and external) can increase or minimize the risk for many disease tendencies. The more we understand the unique bio-individuality of a patient, the more effective our prevention interventions can become. Our practitioners can help to optimize diet and lifestyle but also suggest targeted support therapies to protect and increase overall well-being.
If you’re already suffering from chronic problems, the Groton Wellness Medical Team can review and re-evaluate your medical situation and work with you to optimize nutrition, minimize pharmaceutical interventions and create an effective, more holistic, less toxic chronic disease management plan.
Holistic Nutrition Coaching
At Groton Wellness we understand the importance of individualized prevention strategies. This goes to the heart of how health and wellness coaches work. Coaches meet their clients where they are and help them to develop and implement personal wellness plans.
There is so much we can do to protect ourselves from the risks for chronic disease. The most controllable risk factor is our lifestyle. Although it’s true that there’s a lot we can’t do to control the stressors in the world and in our lives, we CAN control what we eat, how we do what we do, what we think, how we feel and who we allow into our lives.
“Lifestyle as medicine has the potential to prevent up to 80% of chronic diseases, no other medication can match this.” ~ Dr. David Katz
Lifestyle coaching at Groton Wellness helps build your personal support team while encouraging you to go beyond the obstacles keeping you from your best health. Coaches help individuals move beyond what they would do alone.
And the best part of an effective health and wellness prevention plan is that by minimizing our risk for disease, we are also promoting our highest potential for vibrant health. Not a bad side effect!
