Integra Health and Wellness is a unique practice in Fresno, California, that creates personalized treatment plans for each patient. Not only does everyone receive personalized attention and care, but it’s easier to achieve health goals with a treatment plan that works for you. It’s the core of functional medicine, which is why more and more people are turning to functional medicine for relief and health optimization.
But despite the uniqueness of each individual, all human bodies share the same organs, systems, and basic nutritional needs. Human bodies follow the same general blueprints. This is why, at Integra Health and Wellness, we also rely on three pillars of health and wellness. We use these pillars as the foundation for every treatment plan no matter the end goal.
Keep reading to discover these three pillars and see examples of these pillars of health and wellness in action.
Understanding the 3 Pillars of Health and Wellness
It’s important to understand the pillars of health and wellness, which include hormone health, cognitive therapy, and nutritional coaching. These pillars cover areas such as proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, and social connection. When you become a client of Integra Health and Wellness, Dr. Julie will educate you on these general health concepts and your own unique requirements.
Hormones play a vital role in our body’s functioning, affecting everything from our energy levels to our mood. At Integra Health and Wellness, we take a personalized approach to hormone health, identifying imbalances and developing treatment plans to restore balance. We may incorporate replacement therapy into your treatment plan, or we may lean on nutrition and stress management to regulate hormone production.
Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. That’s why at Integra Health and Wellness, we offer cognitive therapy to help patients manage stress, anxiety, and depression. We believe that mental and emotional wellbeing are essential pillars of overall health and wellness. Whether you’re a young adult struggling with brain fog or an elderly person looking to prevent Alzheimers and cognitive decline, we can focus on giving your brain the fuel and environment it needs to thrive.
Proper nutrition is the foundation of good health, and at Integra Health and Wellness, we believe that every patient deserves individualized nutritional coaching. We work with each patient to identify any nutritional deficiencies or imbalances and develop a personalized plan to optimize their health. This nutrition coaching will likely include meal prep, supplements, and advanced testing to determine your overall gut health and nutrient absorption capacity.
Applying the 3 Pillars of Health and Wellness to Unique Health Goals
Each of these pillars of health and wellness will be applied to your unique health goals at Integra Health and Wellness. Whether you’re dealing with a chronic condition or just want to optimize your health, we’ll work with you to develop a personalized plan that incorporates proper nutrition, hormone balance, and mental and emotional wellbeing.
For a patient with a thyroid issue, we might focus on optimizing their hormone levels through medication and lifestyle changes, providing nutritional coaching to support thyroid health, and offering cognitive therapy to manage any emotional or mental health issues related to their condition.
For a patient managing weight gain, we might focus on developing a personalized nutrition plan that supports healthy weight management, addressing any hormonal imbalances that may be contributing to weight gain, and offering cognitive therapy to manage stress and emotional eating. All three pillars of health and wellness can work together to help a patient manage their weight.
For a patient looking to prevent symptoms of aging such as cognitive decline and aching joints, we might focus on optimizing their nutrition and hormone balance to support healthy aging, providing cognitive therapy to support brain health, and recommending exercises to support joint health. Nutrition especially can reduce inflammation and make life easier as you age.
