Stay Healthy for Life
Following your clinical exam, you will meet for 45 minutes each with a clinical psychologist, an exercise physiologist, a registered dietitian and a mind/body health specialist.
Unlike the usual lifestyle consulting approach, each lifestyle specialist at Scripps Center for Executive Health uses your personal, real-time test data and evidence-based research to create a plan that addresses your specific needs.
In addition to your medical test results, your team of lifestyle experts will have information from our lifestyle self-tests that we will provide you with prior to your visit. This information provides in-depth information of your health-influencing factors such as diet, exercise, temperament, coping skills, management style, stress tolerance and propensity for anxiety and depression.
You’ll come away with a lifestyle and performance enhancement plan that includes:
- Your Exercise Prescription: We’ll help you update your current program or design a new one that incorporates the right amount of cardiopulmonary (aerobic), muscular strength and endurance, and function fitness exercises such as flexibility, core stability and range of motion
- Eat Up! Healthy Nutrition: A registered dietitian will tell you what you need to know about weight management, diabetes, cancer and heart disease prevention, eating on the go, making healthy choices at fine dining establishments, low-fat eating, diet fads, nutritional supplements and what to look for on nutritional labeling
- Life Quality Assessment: Our clinical psychologist or behavioral medicine specialist will review information from your life quality assessments to determine how satisfied you are in 16 specific areas of your life, including goals and values, money and community.
- Mind/Body Techniques: Learn how to quiet the mind, calm the emotions and relax the body through breathing, guided imagery, self-monitoring, meditation and other evidence-based techniques
You’ll also be treated to an invigorating massage to send you home feeling wonderful.
