Preventive medicine aims to support everyone’s health and well-being so they can avoid disease and injury. It provides you with trustworthy advice on leading a healthier lifestyle and various preventive treatments that stop you from getting sick.
While preventive medicine has always been around to a degree, it can get neglected in favor of a quick fix with medication. However, avoiding illness is far better — you don’t have to suffer pain and other distressing symptoms, take time off work, face financial hardship, or struggle with childcare.
Furthermore, you don’t endure the weakness that sickness and injuries cause; you avoid losing time recovering from illness and don’t risk the complications chronic diseases cause.
The foundation of preventive medicine is optimizing your general health. Giving your body the nutrients, exercise, rest, and good quality sleep it needs boosts your immune system, so you don’t get sick so often. These healthy living steps also promote natural healing, helping you recover more quickly and avoid complications if you do get sick.
Some of the most common lifestyle problems people face include:
These issues cause or worsen leading health disorders, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, peripheral artery disease (PAD), cancer, strokes, and sight loss. The Roseville Family Healthcare team can help with all these lifestyle problems and any others you face.
Some of the primary preventive medicine services at Roseville Family Healthcare are:
Screening includes blood pressure checks and blood tests to measure your cholesterol, blood sugar, hormone, and nutrient levels. Screening for cervical, prostate, breast, and colorectal cancers is also available. Early intervention can reverse some diseases and make treatment easier and more effective for others.
Immunizations give your immune system the information it needs to identify dangerous pathogens like viruses and bacteria. Most jabs happen in childhood, but some require boosters, particularly for the flu, pneumonia, and COVID-19.
The Roseville Family Healthcare team offers well-adult and well-child exams. These routine health reviews and physical exams identify signs of disease at the earliest stage when they’re more treatable.
