A Healthy Approach to Making Changes in the New Year

Starting something new can be exciting, and yet also daunting. Bringing in the New Year is no exception. Everyone enjoys celebrating New Year’s, however making resolutions and sticking to them is often a big challenge. We have all been through the process of making the perfect resolution, sticking with it for a few days or weeks, but inevitably slipping back into old habits. Do you want 2018 to be different? What are your health goals for the New Year?

The most common resolutions are themed in health and wellness. However most of us try to achieve these goals by making severe health changes and commit to a starting a demanding regimen. The danger with such extreme goals, is that they typically not sustainable and often are not very healthy. We all know that being and feeling healthy is the key to improving the quality of life, but who can you trust to tell you which interventions are right for you? If you spend a few minutes on the internet, you will find hundreds of contradictory recommendations with anecdotal glory stories praising them all. The truth is each person is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to achieving health goals.

Naturopathic Doctors are highly skilled in developing individualized treatment plans that work with your lifestyle. Whether your health goal for 2018 is losing weight, staying fit, or something more specific to your health picture, a Naturopathic Doctor’s guidance and support is the key to achieving that goal in a healthy, sustainable manner. Most extended health care plans include coverage for Naturopathic Medicine.

So, are you ready for the  New Year? Let the professionals at Lavallee Health Centre be your team of support so that 2018 is your year for achieving resolutions, not just making them!
