Healthcare is an ever changing system, the days of seeing a physician only when you are feeling under the weather are over. Preventive medicine and wellness have taken the forefront within the healthcare system. So, what is preventive health and wellness?

Preventive medicine is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as, “a branch of medical science dealing with methods of preventing the occurrence of disease.” In traditional medicine, vaccines have been the only preventive treatment people tend to receive. Although vaccines have recently gained a mixed reputation while preventing disease they have also been blamed for causing many problems. In today’s world vaccination is not the only way to prevent disease.

Disease prevention can occur by eating a healthy diet, daily exercise and stress reduction. These tools are very valuable to sustain a healthy lifestyle and be proactive about your health. A little preventive maintenance for the body can go a long way. The word, “wellness” has also made a very popular appearance in main stream media, physician’s offices and alternative therapy clinics around the world. Wellness is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as, “the quality or state of being healthy.”

Seems simple enough right?

Though achieving wellness may seem simple to most, to others it is a daily struggle. Combining different healing modalities such as chiropractic care, bemer therapy and nutrition can help you achieve and maintain your goals. Lewis Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center, located in Westminster, Maryland gives you both options to help you obtain optimal health and wellness. Lewis Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center offers not only a means to pain relief, but a way to obtain and achieve wellness without prescription medications.

Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to help relieve stubborn headaches, pain, balance the nervous system and also improve organ function. Improving organ function will allow you to operate at maximum performance. Along with spinal adjustments, herbals and homeopathic remedies can be used to help alleviate allergies, gastrointestinal issues, chronic fatigue, headaches and anxiety. Combining both modalities to heal and achieve wellness will give your body the fuel it needs to combat illness and disease later on down the road.

Bemer therapy is also a very unique therapy we offer at Lewis Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center. Bemer is a German medical device that generates a specific beneficial electromagnetic signal that human and animal bodies respond to. One of the many benefits from using the Bemer is dramatic improvement of the bodies circulation which helps improve all body systems and even slows the aging process.
