Your Health Matters
Too often are we reliant on treating health problems after they have manifested into a chronic condition. With busy lives, crazy work schedules, frequent social events, and family responsibilties, we sometimes lose track of our health. We gravitate towards what is easy and fast. Our health pays the price, and as a result we start to suffer on many levels. I am a firm believer that in order to correct this we need define what health is and educate ourselves on the importance of a healthy life and a healthy family.
About my blog
My goal is to educate families to live the healthiest life they can live. In order to reach this goal, I would like to offer a variety of tools. I have tested and created a variety of easy and healthy recipes for families to try. Kid approved by my two young children. Also provided are blogs that provide tips and suggestions for those just starting their journey.
What are the pillars of a healthy life?
Here is my definition of what I believe defines a healthy and balanced life. This is based on peer reviewed articles, research, and my personal experience in the medical field.
I am a full time working Physician Assistant, wife, mother of two young children (ages 1 and 3), and now health and wellness entrepreneur. My family is what motivates me to live a balanced and healthy life.
My compassion for people is what drives my passion for medicine, health, and science. My ultimate drive as a health care provider is to save lives. To have someone trust my ability and knowledge enough to put their life in my hands is quite an honor. One that I take very seriouse.
I have been a PA specializing in Internal Medicine since 2012. I’ll say it again, I love medicine. I find the human body and it’s complexity fascinating. Down to the solitary function of a single cell to the intricate function of multi-organ systems, neural pathways, and energy breakdown. Especially in Internal Medicine, you cannot isolate a solitary health problem for a patient, you must look at that patient as a whole, before deciding an appropriate treatment plan. I specialize in treating patients with multiple co-morbid conditions, that may aggravate or complicate one another and which influences the difficulty of treatment. My outlook and treatment plans have evolved over the years, as I obtain knowledge, medical parameters change and new treatment options are developed. With all of that being said I think there are some foundational items that never change for a healthy and balanced life, those four components include mindfulness, nutritional needs, exercise, and sleep.
Why am I explaining all this? Because I want to help families focus on healthy living. The bulk of my career is based on treating patients who have failed to maintain a healthy balance and now are suffering from chronic illnesses and disease. Not everything is preventable. There are things in this life that happen to us that are unexpected and sometimes unexplainable. There is still a lot we can do to have a happy quality of life for the duration of our time we have here on earth. With my background experience, I want to take healthy living to the next level. I want to help PREVENT disease. I want to provide others with the information and tools to help drive a healthy lifestyle. I want to encourage others to take big steps, take responsibility for themselves and start a NEW life! The truth is this, knowledge is power. The more you know about why you do things, or how things work in the body, the easier it will be to make and maintain healthy decisions for yourself and your family.
