You’re probably here to explore your curiosity for a deeper understanding on how to protect your personal (and your family’s) health and wellness, or perhaps your own GP suggested you visit this site for some guidance. Either way, your health is your greatest asset – stick with us to learn about how you can protect and nurture it.
We are both UK trained GPs. Through our knowledge, experience and passion we will share with you some of the tools and information you should have to reduce your chances of developing future illness and disease.
Although we are best placed as GPs to tackle these issues we rarely have adequate time to address the topic of prevention in the standard consult. We usually only have enough time and resources to manage a problem, rather than spending the time you deserve to learn about how you might prevent one. We therefore decided to build an up to date trusted resource for you, accessible from the comfort of your own home.
Cut through vast volumes of conflicting online information; learn the facts and simple changes you wished you’d known about years ago – to help you live healthier for longer.
What Motivates us?
Naturally as doctors – we want to help people, but we want to move towards helping you earlier in your health and life journey. We have lost count of the number of times patients have presented to us in a ‘disease state’ when it is often too late to fully reverse it.
Simple advice, guidance, explanation and earlier realistic goals can prevent many people from developing these issues in the first place. This also goes for reducing the severity of problems by earlier detection – potentially making it easier for you and your doctor to manage long term.
Stop the Domino Effect
Implementing realistic and long lasting improvements to your basic diet and lifestyle is the best thing you can do to improve your overall health.
Some of the ‘biggies’ you could avoid in the first place are stroke, ischaemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, liver disease, pneumonia and some types of dementia (just examples).
Protecting yourself from these index problems can reduce the domino effect commonly encountered by the body once one of these problems takes a grip. For example, a stroke sufferer is more likely to develop pneumonia, and a person with type 2 diabetes has an increased risk of kidney failure, the list goes on… Therefore preventing a problem through a lifestyle approach in the first place is the best approach you can have for your health.
