Think of wellness as the opposite of illness. Wellness is the goal we should all be striving for, and prevention is the best and least costly way to achieve it. You might be surprised at how many common diseases and health conditions can be avoided entirely by taking preventive steps. You can avoid arthritis, certain cancers, diabetes, heart disease, obesity and many others with good lifestyle habits such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, regular health screenings, not smoking or drinking alcohol and avoiding other toxic substances and environments.
At Western Wake Internal Medicine, we take preventive health care and very seriously. That’s why we recommend and perform preventive care wellness exams along with regular screenings for cancer, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cholesterol and more.
