How Lifestyle Education Can Change Your Life

Did you know that most chronic diseases develop because of your lifestyle choices? What if we told you that making the right choices can help you lead a healthier, happier life? 

In Monterey, California, Terry L. Franklin, MD, takes a comprehensive approach to help people live the best life possible, and part of that involves lifestyle education

Here are a few ways this holistic approach to wellness can help you live a healthier, fuller life — no risky prescriptions required.

The importance of lifestyle education

Did you know you can prevent approximately 80% of all chronic diseases with the right lifestyle choices? These types of conditions include:

Lifestyle education focuses on helping people learn the tools they need to live a healthy lifestyle. This evidence-based approach involves sustainable behaviors proven to avoid chronic conditions and improve your health, but they also increase your quality of life.

What to expect from lifestyle education

Lifestyle education looks at six specific areas in daily life that contribute to your overall health and wellness. They include:

As part of your wellness care, Dr. Franklin helps identify which areas in your life have room for improvement. Then he works with you to make a customized plan so you can incorporate these changes into your daily life.

For example, when you are overweight or obese, the fat cells in your body become more metabolically active. This causes them to produce more biochemicals and hormones that increase inflammation throughout your body, putting you at risk for the chronic diseases outlined above.

Lifestyle education can help address this problem by looking at how your daily choices, like diet or smoking, contribute to your weight. 

Once Dr. Franklin determines which areas have room for improvement, he provides the information you need along with the services and support to help you reach a healthy weight.

The benefits of lifestyle education

One of the greatest advantages you can expect from lifestyle education involves its personalized approach. Dr. Franklin takes a holistic approach when creating a plan designed just for you so that you can make lasting, long-term changes in your life.

Depending on your unique needs, your lifestyle education services could include:

Dr. Franklin also offers natural supplements, nutraceuticals, and weight loss medications to help support your overall health.

With the right lifestyle choices, you can live the healthiest life possible and feel your best every step of the way. But you don’t have to do it alone.
