Wellness Care Q & A
Wellness care focuses on optimizing your overall health and body function. Many health problems are due, at least in part, to unhealthy lifestyle choices such as a poor diet and insufficient physical activity.
Wellness care combines education, support, and other therapeutic treatments to help you become physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy. It addresses the underlying issues that can lead to poor health.
- Dr. Tela provides customized wellness programs to address the specific needs of each individual patient. While each program is unique, they tend to include:
Nutrition is the foundation of good health. Your diet provides the vitamins and other nutrients your body needs for optimal function. Unfortunately, many people rely on unhealthy convenience foods that are calorie-dense, but nutrient-deficient.
Dr. Tela helps you adjust your diet to include fresh, whole foods that provide what your body needs. He might also recommend supplements or vitamins to address any deficiencies that can interfere with your health.
As a lifelong athlete, Dr. Tela knows about the benefits of regular physical activity. Adults should aim for around 150 minutes of moderate physical activity to get their hearts pumping every week. This could be as little as 30 minutes a day, five days a week.
The trick is to find an activity that you enjoy. Some people like to run or ride bikes, while others choose to participate in a sport or group fitness class. Dr. Tela provides recommendations on safely adding activity to your day and gradually increasing the duration and intensity.
Dr. Tela also provides chiropractic care, including adjustments and other treatments to release tension and imbalances that can interfere with your overall wellness.
Food is fuel for your body. In addition to providing the energy you need, the foods you consume also deliver the nutrients your body needs. For example, you need calcium to keep your bones healthy and strong and can absorb this mineral through milk and other dairy products, kale, and broccoli.
The standard American diet includes too much salt, fat, and sugar, which are not only nutrient-deficient calories, but these products interfere with your body’s functioning and increase your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
Dr. Tela provides education, guidance, and support to help you adjust your diet. He can teach you about meal prepping and other techniques to make it easier to choose healthy foods instead of turning into the drive-through.
