Prioritize Your Well-being: The Power of Preventative Health

With the start of 2024 just around the corner, it might be time to make a New Year’s resolution and start investing your time in preventive health care.

The Foundation of Preventative Health 

Preventative health is about embracing a holistic approach to your health, that extends beyond just managing an illness. By embracing a preventative health approach, we’re actively participating in our decision to lead a healthy life.

It can be seen as a combination of lifestyle choices including a well-balanced diet, regular exercise (even in small amounts), minimising your risk of diseases through immunisations, cardiovascular and diabetes screenings, cancer checks, regular health checks, management of mental health conditions as well as regular screening of skin and bone health.

Fortunately, all of these preventative checks can be offered at Sage Medical, and some can be bulk-billed under at no charge to you, under the Medicare Benefits Scheme.

Early Detection Saves Lives 

Regular health checks and screenings play a pivotal role in identifying potential health concerns. Catching issues early often allows for a simpler and more effective treatment.

Developing a strong relationship with your GP is critical to help identify any irregularities with your health. Regular consultations allow for a personalised health plan and advice tailored to your specific needs.

Preventative Health Steps You Can Take Today 
  1. Routine Health Checks and Screening tests: Schedule regular visits to your doctor for health assessments.
  2. Healthy Diet and Exercise: Incorporate a balanced diet and regular physical activity into your routine. As little as 30 minutes of regular walking has been shown to lead to better cardiovascular health.
  3. Stress Management: Practice mindfulness, meditation, or other stress-reducing techniques.
  4. Immunisations: Stay current with recommended immunisations for yourself and your family.
  5. Wellness Education: Stay informed about health and wellness through reputable sources.
