For many people visiting a Naturopathic Doctor such as myself, there is no major health concern or condition that needs to be treated. Rather, they are already if pretty good health overall, but feel that things could be even better. This is where health optimization comes in.
To optimize one's health, we need to focus on the Pillars Of Health:
Sleep provides the foundation for our health. First we must recognize the importance of sleep and make it a priority. If you are having any issues falling asleep, staying asleep, we need to uncover the cause of the issue and address it.
Diet & Nutrition
What we eat and how we digest and metabolize has a major impact on all facets of our health. There are myriad different approaches to a "healthy" diet, but the only thing that matters is finding what works for you as an individual. Along with proper diet, making sure the digestive system as a whole is functioning optimally is key to optimizing your health.
Movement & Activity
Regular movement and exercise has numerous health benefits, but the actual type of exercise will vary depending on the individual and your unique health goals.
Mental Emotional Health & Well-Being
The mind and body are one functioning unit, and correcting the above pillars of health will go a long way to supporting mental/emotional well-being. Beyond that, there are many tools that can be employed to assist in this area.
