You’ve probably heard of a physical checkup, but have you heard about a holistic wellness check? A holistic wellness check can help you achieve peak health by addressing your physical symptoms as well as your emotional and mental health, and lifestyle.

A holistic wellness check follows an all-encompassing approach that believes many aspects of our life can contribute to our overall well-being. In this article, you’ll learn the benefits of a holistic wellness check and what to expect when receiving one.

Benefits of a Holistic Wellness Check

A holistic wellness check looks at you as a whole person, rather than just addressing the symptoms you are experiencing. The benefits include:

  • Providing you with a comprehensive picture of your well-being and overall health
  • Identifying the root cause of any potential health issues and symptoms
  • Finding out how to prevent certain health conditions and symptoms from recurring
  • Experiencing an improved quality of life
  • Learning how you can enhance your emotional, mental, and physical health

What To Expect with a Holistic Wellness Check

During a holistic wellness check, your practitioner will ask questions about not only your physical health but also your mental and emotional health. They will also ask questions to help them understand your lifestyle, such as relationships, current stress levels, which foods you eat, etc. A holistic wellness check includes several assessments, which can involve a combination of some or all of the below:
  • Checking vital signs
  • Drawing blood for a functional blood chemistry panel
  • Conducting a thorough physical examination
  • Evaluating your mental health
  • Gathering information about your diet, sleep patterns, and any exercise routine you might follow
  • Evaluating stress levels and your emotional well-being
  • Asking about your friendships and relationships and any support systems in place

Based on the findings from the above assessments, your holistic wellness practitioner will create a personalized treatment plan to address the root cause of your symptoms. They might provide you with various prebiotic and probiotic supplements, IV therapy or amino acid therapy, PRP/Ozone therapy, and/or teach you about which foods you should avoid and which foods will agree with your system. Each wellness check is completely personalized based on your needs.

Traditional Checkup vs. a Holistic Wellness Check

As mentioned, a holistic wellness check is much more comprehensive than a traditional checkup. During a traditional checkup, the physician will check vital signs, listen to the heart and lungs, and ask which symptoms you are experiencing. They might then prescribe you with medications based on your symptoms. The focus is almost always on the physical symptoms with little regard for anything else in your life (or with your health) that could be contributing and/or causing your symptoms.

During a holistic wellness check, your practitioner will be gathering information to identify the root cause of any symptoms you are experiencing. While this might involve checking vital signs and conducting a physical exam, they will also evaluate your current lifestyle, any potential changes that have recently occurred (such as loss of a job or a recent move), evaluate your stress levels, and try to gauge your emotional health and mental health.
