Why Is Prevention Important?

Prevention is essential for longevity. When you focus on prevention you avoid developing chronic disease and you slow aging. Unfortunately, conventional medicine is more apt to treat symptoms when they already appear, or a disease after you’ve already received a diagnosis. This way of medicine does not promote healthspan. By staying proactive about your health, you dodge waiting rooms, prescription lines and other healthcare costs. You also get more of what you enjoy – time spent with loved ones, time to appreciate quality of life, time to get more out of life and the list goes on.

Prevention is about making lifestyle adjustments that support your genes, your nutrient needs, and your overall unique health profile. Prevention makes use of:

  1. Diet
  2. Exercise
  3. Stress-reduction techniques
  4. Therapeutic healing modalities: cold therapy, sauna, etc
  5. Supplementation
  6. Regular testing
  7. Real-time health data monitoring (wearable devices)
  8. Advanced testing
  9. Technology
  10. Regular check-ups

Altogether these tools help promote health before health issues appear or worsen. Prevention gives you the power to make informed choices about your life. By understanding your risks and taking steps to combat them, you lower your chances of dealing with serious health problems. Whether it's avoiding heart disease, diabetes, or even managing stress to prevent anxiety, you hold the keys to your well-being. Staying on top of your health makes for a longer and happier life.
