Optimize Your Emotional, Mental, and Physical Health With A High Performance Medicine Appointment

It can feel impossible trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle in the flurry of modern life. Who has time to cook a nutritious meal every day, get 7-9 hours of sleep each night, and get regular exercise on top of it? However, making healthy lifestyle choices plays a vital role in your emotional, mental, and physical health, and neglecting them can put your health at risk. 

Fortunately, Dr. Scott L Bernstein at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, takes a high performance medicine approach to help you reach peak performance and optimal health. In this blog, Dr. Bernstein shares a few insights into how this personalized strategy can help identify your health risks and improve your emotional, mental, and physical wellness.

Understanding high performance medicine

Many medical professionals simply focus on preventive medicine and treating the symptoms of a problem instead of addressing the issue at the source. High performance medicine takes a very different approach by combining numerous methodologies, such as:

By using this comprehensive approach, Dr. Bernstein can develop a personalized strategy to help you reach your health care goals. He can also help you develop and integrate the healthy lifestyle habits you need to achieve optimal health and wellness.

Why high performance medicine matters

Unlike traditional approaches, high performance medicine takes into account your specific genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. Instead of accepting the outcomes of your illnesses or habits and living with them, you work with Dr. Bernstein to identify the root cause and create a treatment strategy designed to overcome them.

The result? Your high performance medicine appointment empowers you to take an active role in improving your own outcomes. And the closer you work with Dr. Bernstein, the better you come to understand the secrets to your own health and wellness. 

What to expect during your appointment

At its heart, high performance medicine encourages you to live a healthier lifestyle by eating a balanced diet, practicing stress management, and exercising regularly.

During your first appointment, Dr. Bernstein performs a physical evaluation, reviews your medical history and lifestyle habits, and discusses your overall health goals. He orders extensive lab testing, like blood work and urinalysis. These tests can help identify health concerns, such as:

Based on all of his findings, Dr. Bernstein works with you to create a personalized action plan to help you optimize your health and reach your goals.

Part of the strategy includes regular journaling to document your nutrition, exercise, and sleep habits. This is an important part of your high performance medicine program because Dr. Bernstein uses it as a tool to assess your progress and modify your plan as needed.

As your lifestyle habits improve, you notice benefits in every aspect of your health, including physical, emotional, and mental.
