The Power of Prevention
At A Stronger Tomorrow, I work with patients who wish to prevent diseases, alleviate symptoms, and stay healthy.
Prevention is key. Mindful eating and quality nutrition can help lower your risk for many chronic conditions and diseases, including heart disease, stroke, some cancers, diabetes, and osteoporosis. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, for example, found that participants who made lifestyle changes in diet and exercise reduced their risk of a diabetes diagnosis by 58 percent.
My philosophy is built on these principles:
· It is easier to prevent a disease than to live with a disease.
· It takes less time to prevent a disease than to manage a disease.
· It is less expensive to prevent a disease by eating healthy and leading an active lifestyle than to pay for the medications, doctor appointments, and hospital stays that chronic conditions require.
