Give Yourself a New Quality of Life with Lifestyle Education

Every choice we make has a consequence. Sometimes the outcomes are obvious, but others can be less apparent — like the impact an unhealthy lifestyle can have on your physical and mental health.

Did you know you can prevent most chronic diseases by making lifestyle changes? That’s because the leading risk factors for most chronic diseases include:

But making these changes can seem overwhelming on your own, especially when you don’t know where to start. Fortunately, you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

Dr. Terry L. Franklin brings comprehensive lifestyle education services to our patients in Monterey, California. Here’s how lifestyle education can give you a completely new quality of life.

Lifestyle education basics

The overall goal of lifestyle education is incredibly simple and straightforward: to help you learn how to live the healthiest life possible.

When you work with Dr. Franklin, he helps you identify specific areas of your life that could contribute to chronic health problems. 

For example, if you have excess weight to lose, Dr. Franklin explains the role fat cells play in your body and the health problems they can pose, including:

After identifying these particular areas for improvement and providing the information on how they put your health at risk, Dr. Franklin can outline specific strategies to help you change them.

Getting a new quality of life with lifestyle education

Change is hard, but it’s easier when you have a clear starting point. And the best part? Adopting the right lifestyle habits can promote weight loss, prevent weight gain, and enhance your overall health all at the same time.

It’s easy to assume that lifestyle education involves eating a balanced diet, reducing stress, and exercising. But Dr. Franklin personalizes each of his lifestyle education programs on a case-by-case basis. 

To do that, he considers your personal goals, overall health and medical history, and diet and weight loss history. As a result, your lifestyle education program could include:

And lifestyle education involves more than a to-do list. 

Dr. Franklin understands that it’s incredibly challenging to change existing behaviors and adopt new ones. That’s why he works closely with you as a doctor, coach, and cheerleader, continually educating, motivating, and providing the techniques you need to improve your health and quality of life.
