• How to Better Participate in Your Health

    Gone are the days when people would go to the doctor only when they were sick and then simply take a prescription to feel better. More and more, people are beginning to participate in their health and they are making a better effort to engage in wellness and prevention strategies.

    Participation has never been so important as it is now, when it has to do with one’s health. That’s because P4 Health is transforming our healthcare system, and population health is being monitored by the government, not to mention that people are becoming more aware of the fact that healthy lifestyle habits are necessary to live long, happy, healthy lives.

    Participate in Your Health-350Having said that, here are some tips that will help you better participate in your health so that long, happy, healthy life can be yours:

    Learn Your Genetic Predisposition to Diseases and Treatments

    Genomics, the study of the human genome and the role it plays in biology and disease, has made it possible for you to learn what diseases you are genetically predisposed to, as well how certain treatments and pharmaceuticals will affect you based on your genetic makeup.

    By getting a CarpeVITA Genomics GenoTest, you will be able to gain insight into your health in a new way that will allow you and your health care provider(s) to make health decisions that are more informed.

    Discuss this option with your health care provider, who can help you choose which genomic test(s) will make sense for you to take based on your family history. You can order your GenoTest(s) here.

    Begin to Think of Your Health Holistically

    You are not comprised of separate parts. You are comprised of various organs and systems that all work together to produce the results that carry you through each day. If one of these parts breaks down, it affects the other parts as well.

    What you eat affects every cell in your body. The amount of movement you engage in determines if your systems will continue functioning properly. What you put on your body goes directly into your bloodstream and can have a dramatic affect on the hormones that monitor many vital bodily functions. What you think about even affects your state of health and what you do to your body has an effect on the brain as well.

    If you haven’t already realized it, it’s time to stop engaging in unhealthy lifestyle habits that wear down your body’s ability to stay healthy.
