At Modern Women’s Health, we believe that self-care goes a long way. When you know how to take care of yourself, you lower your risk of poor health and enhance your chances of feeling great.
Our Goal for You: Overall Wellness
One of our primary areas of focus is overall wellness for women. Although we provide many treatments, the real key to feeling your best is practicing self-care every single day. This will help you lead a life where you feel and look better.
What Exactly is Self-Care?
Self-care can mean many things, but at Modern Women’s Health, it refers to literally taking care of yourself through a range of avenues in order to feel your best. This can include:
- Optimizing your nutrition and eating well
- Undergoing a weight loss plan if needed
- Exercising regularly
- Drinking plenty of water
- Avoiding alcohol and caffeine
- Not smoking or indulging in drugs
- Meditation or another form of relaxation therapy
Self-Care for Prevention
Although the items above are used to prevent diseases and keep you at your healthiest, they are very general. There are more detailed things that self-care can involve for prevention, such as self-breast exams and how to avoid getting urinary tract infections. We can educate you on these topics in order to help keep you feeling well.
If you’re planning on becoming pregnant or you already are, self-care should be a big part of your life — for both you and your baby. We can educate you on the right diet for your body and pregnancy; exercises you can do; how to address aesthetic concerns during pregnancy, and much more.
Self-Care for Specific Conditions
If you visit us for a specific condition such as a weak pelvic floor, irregular periods, menopause symptoms, endometriosis, etc., we can educate you on things you can do at home to help alleviate pain, prevent flare-ups, and live your life more comfortably.
We are able to educate you on self-care for vaginal and breast issues, cancer, heart disease, the female organs, menopause and perimenopause, anxiety and depression, hormonal imbalance, and much more.
If you’re undergoing a procedure with us, no matter how small or extensive, we will provide you with detailed self-care instructions to help any recovery go smoothly. Self-care during recovery can include anything from taking pain medications to avoiding sun exposure. It’s also very important to rest and not push yourself to go back to work too quickly if a procedure or surgery requires a certain amount of downtime. Different surgeries and procedures will have different self-care guidelines.
