Health care, or more appropriate “sick care,” as we know it is fundamentally flawed.
Conventional western medicine has become too reliant on symptomatic relief through the dependence and misuse of prescription medications and surgical procedures. This has resulted in a model of “health” that focuses on being reactive to a patient’s symptoms and concerns rather than addressing their health needs from a perspective of wellness.
One way to address this issue is through the utilization of a trend in health care referred to as integrated health. This model acknowledges the fragmented delivery of contemporary health care and corrects it by bringing together experts in various fields, preferably in one setting, to promote true health and wellness.
How many times have you seen your primary care physician when you’re not feeling well only to be given a prescription to mask your symptoms or god forbid being referred to a specialist who runs countless tests that are time-consuming, expensive and more often than not unreliable diagnostic indicators?
Integrated health looks to change this “by bringing together inputs, delivery, management and organization of services related to diagnosis, treatment, care, rehabilitation and health promotion”, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
We here at HealthFit are looking to change the course of health and wellness care through the implementation of integrated health throughout the northwest Chicagoland area.
With our state-of-the-art health and fitness facility conveniently located between downtown Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect, the team at HealthFit is bringing integrated health to reality. We are bringing together a wealth of health services including acupuncture, functional medicine, health coaching, nutrition counseling, therapeutic massage, yoga and chiropractic care, all under one roof in a community setting where all your health needs will be addressed naturally and in a coordinated and comprehensive manner.
Because isn’t about time that you felt your health needs were being addressed with a focus on your health?
