5 Reasons to Get a Wellness Analysis Today

When was the last time you visited a medical professional for preventive care? If you’re like most people, you don’t enter the doctor’s office until you experience symptoms. 

Preventive care is key for avoiding the two biggest killers in the United States: heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, few people check their health status, and when they do, the lab tests they get only look for obvious pathologies, often ignoring what happens on a cellular level.

As advocates for prevention, our team at City Chiropractic and Wellness would like to share the top five reasons why you need a bird’s eye view of your health.

1. Prevent heart disease and type 2 diabetes 

Both heart disease and type 2 diabetes are silent killers. They rarely come with symptoms in the early stages, and can slowly damage your body for years before you get a diagnosis. 

A wellness analysis can help you catch and prevent these two chronic illnesses early on by looking at what’s happening in your body at a cellular level before any symptoms show up.

2. Look for food sensitivities and allergies 

Food sensitivities and allergies can cause a lot of issues, from acne and migraines to sleep problems and weight gain. A simple food sensitivity or a mild food allergy can damage your body for years. 

Our team at City Chiropractic and Wellness can help you optimize your diet and improve your quality of life by making you aware of what food allergies and sensitivities you have.

3. Assess your hormonal health

Hormonal imbalances are common. Nearly everyone goes through hormonal imbalances at least once or twice in their life

But hormones impact more than reproduction and libido. They also regulate your mood, how much fat you store, your energy levels, and the health of your skin, hair, and nails. 

4. Detect micro-deficiencies at a cellular level 

It’s no secret that chronic micro-deficiencies can increase your risk for disease, but few people actually look into how well their body uses micronutrients and whether they have any deficiencies. 

Deficiencies are more common than you may think. Estimates show that 10 million Americans are anemic and 41.6% of Americans suffer from Vitamin D deficiency.

5. Fight inflammation before it leads to chronic illnesses

Low-grade inflammation rarely comes with symptoms. However, if left untreated, it can lead to a myriad of chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. 

A wellness analysis looks at your inflammation markers and provides insight into whether you need to take steps towards changing your lifestyle or see a specialist.
