Transitional Lifestyle Guidance
Transitional lifestyle guidance in Burnaby, British Columbia
As women grow, it’s inevitable that women’s bodies will develop. From childhood, to adolescence, and into adulthood, women’s bodies will undoubtedly continue to change. Thus, hormone levels will fluctuate, as well metabolism. Through transitional lifestyle guidance, we can help you develop an appropriate lifestyle plan based on your personalized needs.
What is transitional lifestyle guidance?
Transitional lifestyle guidance is an overall health and wellness plan provided by your physician. In this case, we provide gynaecology patients with specific nutritional and exercise plans, as well as wellness tips to ensure optimum health levels.
Why should you consider transitional lifestyle guidance?
As your body changes, hormones increase or deplete, as well as metabolism slows. This fluctuation and depletion can cause minimal or major changes to your weight, energy level, and overall health. With specialized monitoring and counseling from a specialist in women’s health, you can rest easy knowing that, by following a specific plan, you are caring for body in the best way possible.
What does a transitional lifestyle guidance consultation consist of?
At our Burnaby office, we will perform an in-depth assessment of your family medical history to see if you have any genetic predispositions to certain illnesses. For example, thyroid disease is commonly genetic and even more common in women. Thyroid disease can cause problems like fatigue and weight gain, depending upon the type. Thus, depending upon diagnosis, certain exercise, nutritional, and lifestyle changes may be advised to ensure optimum quality of life.
Who is a candidate for transitional lifestyle guidance?
While anyone can be a candidate for counseling, women experiencing certain issues may be more pressed for a consultation than others. For example, if you are experiencing mood changes, fatigue, excessive weight gain, or trouble losing weight, you may want to seek lifestyle guidance. A women’s reproductive health specialist, such as Dr. Wong, can determine if medical treatment, lifestyle changes, or a hybrid of the two is needed.
