Welcome to the initial installment of what we hope will be an ongoing learning experience on how to live the rest of your life in the fullest and healthiest way possible. Every week there will be a “blog” entry which we hope will be informative and useful for you.
The world of medicine is an ever changing environment. New developments occur in every discipline daily. Each new entry in The Live Well Blog will be available for you to explore, aimed at enhancing your quality of life.
At the end of the blog, there will be a comment field for you to utilize. Please limit your comments to subjects you would like information on, suggestions for us, news we all can use, or similar type subjects. We cannot give medical advice in the blog or answer questions to your particular health problems in this public forum.
The focus of Pointe Medical Services can best be described as “Integrative Medicine”. Integrative Medicine is based on a practitioner and client partnership in which both conventional and alternative modalities are used to stimulate the body’s natural healing potential. The tenants of healing with a strong emphasis on proactive preventative medicine are the core philosophy. Conventional medicine is ‘reactive’; that is, one needs to be already ill to receive treatment. Integrative Medicine is aimed at prevention of illness by using treatments that have been scientifically proven to promote good health.
This data has been studied for many years, and proven to be effective and most importantly healthful to you as aging occurs. The trend in Integrative Medicine is utilizing more natural substances instead of the synthetic medications which are proving to be dangerous in many circumstances. In addition to vitamins, supplements and education; your body’s natural hormones will be balanced and optimized to allow maximal performance of all your bodily functions. The appropriate replacement and balance of your natural hormones, also known by the media as ‘BioIdentical Hormone Therapy’ is the key to aging while still feeling happy and healthy and being able to live “Life as it Should Be”.
We are extremely pleased to provide this blog as an interactive tool to help you attain the goals you desire. It will also help us achieve our goal of improving your health. We hope you participate and provide your input by using the comments section.
