Proactive Health for Optimal Outcomes: Understanding Health
We think it is safe to say that we all have a general idea of what health is and why it is so important but let's break it down.
How well do you know your health history?
Most people think they have a pretty good understanding of their personal and family medical history but that is not always the case. We strongly encourage you to do some digging, ask around your family (if able) and start asking some questions about the state of your families health and your own.
Knowing our health history and risk factors is vital for making informed healthcare decisions can help you to be more proactive with your health and optimize your outcomes.
Here are some helpful areas to consider when looking into our your health history.
Exploring Your Health History: Blood type, vaccinations, hormonal state
Family Medical History: Genetic predispositions to conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, or thyroid disorders.
Regular Health Assessments: Annual check-ups, BMI, and hormone levels evaluation.
When was your last annual check-up, and have you recently assessed your BMI and hormone levels?

Being well-informed about your health history and risk factors is vital to making wise healthcare decisions and taking proactive steps to protect yourself.
Prevention is Essential
The adage "prevention is better than cure" rings true, especially when it comes to health. By identifying and addressing risk factors early, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of developing serious conditions. For instance, understanding your family's history of diabetes can motivate you to adopt a healthier lifestyle to mitigate your risk. Similarly, knowing your genetic predisposition to certain diseases empowers you to take control of your health
Let's take a real-life example to illustrate this:
Meet Klara, a vibrant 30-year-old woman with a family history of diabetes. Though Klara is not diabetic, she has struggled to maintain a healthy weight and has experienced challenging menstrual periods. Concerned about her health, Klara took the initiative to undergo a comprehensive hormone assessment and promptly scheduled a consultation with the experts at Gershon Preventative Medicine.
During her consultation, Klara shared her medical history and underwent various lab tests to gain deeper insights into her health. Working closely with her healthcare provider, it became evident that Klara was dealing with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder that increases her risk of developing diabetes.
Armed with this crucial knowledge, Klara's doctor formulated a personalized treatment plan. Klara started Hormone Optimization Therapy to address her hormonal imbalances and was prescribed GLP-1, which helps reduce insulin resistance, thus lowering her chances of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
By proactively taking control of her health and understanding her unique risk factors, Klara made an informed decision that aligns perfectly with her needs. With the guidance and support of Gershon Preventative Medicine, Klara's risk of developing diabetes has dramatically decreased, empowering her to lead a healthier and happier life.
Prioritize Healthy Habits to Promote Healthy Outcomes
Health should not be an afterthought but rather a central part of your daily routine. Prioritize these health-conscious habits to support your overall well-being:
Maintain a consistent sleep routine for adequate rest and recovery.
Nourish your body with a balanced and nutritious diet.
Embrace an active lifestyle and engage in regular physical activity.
Manage stress through mindfulness practices and relaxation techniques.
By integrating these habits into your life, you can improve your overall health and reduce the likelihood of developing health issues.
Hormone Therapy and Medical Weight Management can Improve your Outcomes
Hormones play a crucial role in regulating various bodily functions, making them vital messengers for understanding your health. Imbalances in hormones can manifest in several symptoms that affect both men and women, such as mood swings, fatigue, weight gain, and decreased libido. At Gershon Preventative Medicine, we offer hormone replacement therapy to address hormonal imbalances and restore vitality.
Moreover, maintaining a healthy weight is essential for overall well-being, as excessive weight gain can contribute to the risk of developing diseases. We provide safe and sustainable weight management solutions, including GLP-1 or semaglutide medication and the phentermine/topiramate combo.
