Approaching your life and health decisions from a place of preventative medicine can be very empowering. Many people feel that they will fall victim to illnesses or conditions that run in their families: breast cancer, diabetes, arthritis, difficult menopause, heart disease, weight difficulties. You can use the information in your family history to your advantage and create a preventative health program specifically targeted to your family’s weak areas. Remember that genetics present a susceptibility to a condition or disease, not a life sentence. And studies have shown that the majority of cancers are preventable with diet and lifestyle changes. Choose the empowered route!
Did you inherit your mother’s smile and her tendency to avoid conflict? You may be expressing a family behaviour that can impacting your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Psychotherapy is an excellent opportunity to explore and resolve family of origin issues.
