An Owner’s Guide to Good Health

Keep your body running like new

You probably check the owner’s manual before bringing your car in for service. Care for your body with the same attention to detail.

Integrative Medicine Specialist

Keep on top of your recommended health screenings and be sure to discuss the following with your physician at your next annual checkup:

Sleep Habits

Do you wake feeling refreshed or fatigued? Don’t let an undiagnosed sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea or insomnia, compromise your well-being.

Stress Levels

Everyone experiences stress; it’s how you manage it that affects your health. Ask your doctor about the benefi ts of yoga and meditation and other ways to minimize stress.

Emotional Health

Talk to your doctor about depression, irritability, relationship issues and anything else that is getting in the way of your happiness.
