General health is defined as a state of physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being, not just being free of disease or a medical condition.
Our General Health program is designed to help patients live life to the fullest! It includes a spiritual/bio/psycho/social approach. the mind body connection is emphasized in this program. The purpose is to optimize physical, mental health and wellbeing. We take time to get to know our patients!
We start off with blood work. We look at everything from cholesterol to hormones. We also look at inflammatory markers. After blood work, the provider reviews, and the patient comes in for a consult. The purpose of this program is to look at every possible way to increase the patients health and well being. in order for this to occur, labs are needed, and medical, and family history as well as lifestyle habits, and social history.
At Carvalho Healthcare, we want our patients to maintain their highest level of physical and mental well-being. A healthy lifestyle is lifelong. This means we focus on achievable health goals. We are not trying to change everything at once. That’s impossible. We have to take it a step at a time, giving patients what they need in order to get to their optimal state of health. We want to see results, and we will do everything on our end to make sure that happens!
