Systems Approach to Your Health
At the IMW, we look at your health different from traditional primary care offices. We take a Systems approach to your health and wellness. My belief is that many of your health conditions can be grouped into a system. for example: Obesity, High Blood Pressure and Diabetes are all examples of your Metabolic system being out of balance. So instead of looking at these 3 disease processes as separate and distinct, we look at them as all being a Metabolic imbalance and work with you to re-achieve a healthier metabolism. Once you achieve a healthier metabolism, you have improved your Obesity, High Blood pressure and Diabetes, usually with LESS medications.
The Big Four Systems we look at are METABOLIC, IMMUNE/INFLAMMATORY, NUTRITION and HORMONAL.
These four systems are responsible for over 90% of health issues we see in primary care. There are other systems we look at as well, dependent upon your individual health issues and needs.
We use information obtained from your own personal medical health history, your family medical health history, your physical exam findings, your own health complaints, and the results of your health testing including our IMW-Advanced Wellness Testing (IMW-AWT) to determine if your health systems are in balance. These are all reviewed with you during your annual IMW Wellness examination and review.
Your goal is to have your health systems all in a healthy balance.
Our goal is to help you achieve this healthy balance!
