Listening to what our bodies need appears to be the last thing on our minds in today's fast-paced world. With work, school, family and other obligations to attend to, a doctor's appointment almost always falls to the bottom of your list of priorities. But what if you had a dedicated team of holistic doctors and health practitioners who could create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific health requirements? Wouldn't that be a fantastic way to regain control of your health and keep illness at bay?
For some people, popping a pill is the quickest way to get rid of illness and restore their bodies' normal functioning, albeit only temporarily. The more astute members of the population, on the other hand, have successfully found a way to stop their recurring conditions not through conventional medicine, but by finding a team of health professionals whom they can access 24/7 online or via text.
Yup, you read that right! Instead of trying to squeeze in time for a health consultation, to no avail, you can have your own team of health professionals work on your specific health concern, whether it's weight problems, PCOS, migraines, smoking cessation or what have you. Having someone you can talk to about your health at any time of day is critical to making significant changes to your health and improving your overall wellbeing.
Meet Your Vively Team
Vively is an Australian team of world-class holistic health professionals specialising in lifestyle medicine, a science-backed approach to treating a wide range of chronic conditions that employs integrative medicine and a wide range of natural therapies such as naturopathy, physiotherapy, nutrition, herbal medicine, and many others.
While Vively's health practitioners specialise in holistic medicine, they do not seek to replace general practitioners; rather, they collaborate with them to ensure the best possible outcome for their patients. The primary goal of these holistic practitioners is to help their patients reclaim their health by providing them with a personalised treatment plan that aims to reduce their reliance on synthetic drugs, which have dangerous side effects.
Because each of us has a unique biological constitution that is influenced by our genes, environment and lifestyle, it is critical to work with health professionals who know you from the inside out and have the tools, knowledge and skills to address your health concerns at their root rather than just on the surface.
Why Lifestyle Medicine is Key to Taking Control of Your Health
We were all born with the innate ability of our bodies to heal themselves. This is why a child can easily get up from the ground and resume their activity after falling, whereas an adult or elderly person may end up in a hospital bed due to a fractured bone. As we age, our bodies deteriorate as a result of unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity, staying up late and eating foods high in sodium, sugar, preservatives, and artificial flavours and colours.
Lifestyle medicine employs diet, exercise and an array of holistic medicine to prevent and treat a variety of lifestyle diseases and those rooted in genetics, such as the following:
- Heart disease
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Anxiety disorders
- Certain types of cancer
- Metabolic syndrome
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Alzheimer's disease
- Kidney failure
- Obesity and other weight problems
Working with holistic practitioners who specialise in lifestyle medicine enables you to identify which habits must be changed in order to be more physically, mentally and emotionally healthy. What's more, you do not need to rely on synthetic drugs such as pain relievers or antidepressants to restore your health.
Vively's team of healthcare professionals will provide you with a step-by-step strategy to get you where you want to be in life. If you have any questions or need clarification on any aspect of the treatment plan, your dependable team is only a text message away.
Get the Results You Want in the Least Amount of Time
Honesty, transparency and communication with your Vively multidisciplinary team, just like in any relationship, are necessary to accomplish your health goals in no time. Once you have been introduced to the holistic practitioners who will work on your case, you can expect them to immediately start developing a treatment plan relevant to your health requirements. The nature of the therapies included in your treatment program will be determined by the condition being treated.
If you've been struggling with weight gain, for instance, while trying a variety of diets, your Vively healthcare team may be able to put together a plan based on what you've consented to. It may consist of nutritional counselling and planning, herbal remedies and an exercise program. Additional therapies may include hypnotherapy for weight loss, meditation and yoga.
Because lifestyle medicine is an important component of your treatment plan, you will need to forego or change certain habits in order to effect change in your mind and body. That means that if you're a couch potato, your multidisciplinary team may require you to exercise at least three times a week. If you enjoy fast food or takeaways, you may need to stock your pantry with fruits and vegetables, as your healthcare team will almost certainly recommend a list of healthy meals that are easy to cook.
It can take anywhere from three to six months to see optimal results and regain control of your health with the help of your Vively team and your rigid adherence to your personalised healthcare program.Originally published on Feb 16, 2022
