Preventive Care Q & A

Why are preventive care services so important?

Preventive care focuses on getting the screenings you need to detect signs of disease in the earliest possible stages and learn more about your risk levels for various health problems. Routine physicals are an essential part of preventive health.

For example, women need routine Pap smear testing to check for signs of cervical cancer, but they also need blood testing to understand their cholesterol levels and blood pressure checks to learn how well their heart is functioning.

Men need to come in for prostate cancer screening as they move into the later stages of middle age, but they also need to take steps to address declining hormone production as they age.

Men often need additional support with stress management and avoiding risky behaviors. 

Wellness involves your social, mental, and emotional health, in addition to how well your body is functioning. Finding balance in all areas of life is the key to boosting wellness. Many people need a bit of guidance and support as they work to find areas that need improvement.

How does preventive care work to boost overall health?

Preventive care offers a wealth of benefits, not just for preventing disease. Many of the steps you should take to reduce your risk of disease will also pay off in your daily quality of life. 

Nutrition is a prime example. The food you eat provides the fuel your body needs to thrive. High-quality food delivers a wide range of benefits, helping you feel energized and fueling all areas of health and wellness.

Your gut health plays a critical role in overall health, and supporting a healthy gut takes planning and close monitoring. You can boost your nutrient intake by adding supplements to your daily routine.

Getting enough physical activity is also essential. The team at I & B Medical Associates can help you incorporate more movement into your daily routines, which can help you reach a healthier weight, reduce blood pressure, and enhance your sleep quality. Weight loss is among the services available.
