Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death for both men and women in this country. In most cases it can be prevented or controlled through good health practices. Good health practices can also help prevent or control other conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and cancer. Healthy habits also help you feel better about yourself!
What is the Personal Wellness Profile?
Knowing your risk for illness or injury is the first step toward improving your well-being and decreasing your chances for health problems. The Personal Wellness Profile (PWP) is a tool to help you identify your current health history and lifestyle practices. It also includes lab testing for blood lipids (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides) and a measurement of your hip, waist, height, weight, and blood pressure.
From this data comes a confidential, individualized 6 page report. This report highlights your good health practices and their benefits. It also identifies health risks that you should be concerned with and offers suggestions for change. If you choose, we also offer the opportunity to review these results with a healthcare professional so you understand the entire report.
The PWP is a great opportunity to begin to look at how your lifestyle choices impact your health and well-being. You really can make a difference!
We can also bring the PWP screening to your business or organizations on-site. Group rates available. Call (309) 655-6381 to learn more.
