Wellness is a hot topic in the health and personal care industry, yet many women are uncertain exactly what the term means. Wellness is a complex concept that encompasses many aspects of a woman’s life.
Women’s wellness is more than an absence of disease, although disease prevention is part of wellness. It is a state of being in which you address all of your needs, whether those needs are physical, emotional, or spiritual.
Your family and social dynamics are also part of wellness. The people you live with or spend time with factor into your overall wellness and behavioral health issues like addiction or anxiety are also part of the equation.
The best place to begin is by working with a medical professional who understands the importance of wellness in overall health. At The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical, Monique works closely with the women in her care to identify areas where improvement is possible, then structures action plans that can affect real change.
The process starts with a conversation about your lifestyle, your emotional health, and your overall outlook. These discussions are part of routine well-woman care, and Monique dedicates a portion of each visit to talking about wellness issues.
Women’s health may center on reproductive health, but it extends far beyond. Monique works to provide comprehensive wellness care that meets your current set of needs.
Just as no two women are alike, none will share the exact same set of wellness needs. Your focus might be on how to feel more energized and productive, while another woman might want to focus on reducing anxiety and finding relief from interpersonal strife.
Some women benefit from trying new wellness practices, like yoga, meditation, guided breathing, or other activities. These pursuits can help you achieve more balance in your daily life, and are great ways to reduce stress and restore a sense of calm.
Women in menopause often suffer from a range of symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy using a pellet-based system can provide relief, enhancing wellness.
