Lifestyle & Preventive Medicine in Irving
Live Healthy Today to Prevent Problems Tomorrow
Scientific evidence suggests that our lifestyle behaviors may be the most important factor influencing health and the risk of disease. Many of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States today, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, can often be prevented through healthy lifestyle choices. As we adopt healthy habits, disease symptoms can significantly improve. In some cases, the right plan has even been shown to reverse serious conditions in their early stages, such as diabetes, heart disease, and prostate cancer.
Making Positive Changes
Our lifestyle develops over time in response to our surroundings, family, work, social network, and education. As a result, changing habits is not easy and often requires help, beyond the common advice of "eat better and exercise!" There is often uncertainty about how to build willpower, and what specific changes – including a diet, exercise routine, or medication regimen – are ideal for a specific individual. During times of illness or personal difficulty, it becomes harder to develop and maintain crucial wellness skills.
