Optimal health is being the best you can be and feeling the best you can feel.
On an individual level, a lot depends on who you are, what your goal is, and the capacity your body has to repair and regenerate itself.
Optimal health can carry a very different meaning for different people, depending on their aims and goals.
For example, for a 35 year old athlete with a recent diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease, who is plagued with recurrent bouts of abdominal pain and diarrhoea which dramatically affect his performance, the goal may be to significantly reduce (if not eradicate) the pain and diarrhoea, allowing him to return to top athletic performance.
A 75 year old person with a long history of rheumatoid arthritis who endures continuous pain, treated unsuccessfully by conventional pharmaceutical and surgical interventions, is unlikely to be planning any sporting activities. Their goal is more likely to be minimising or eradicating pain, and improving their functional ability and joint movements, allowing them a greater freedom and quality of life.
Achieving optimal health requires a multi-faceted approach. Both physician and patient need to work together to address the issues that have led to the development of a particular condition. More progress will be achieved if we remember that it is necessary for all aspects of our being – mind, body and spirit – to function in harmony.
At Quantum Clinic, we use multiple modes of therapy to help you regain your wellbeing. Together, we look at the different therapies to address the root causes of your condition, and utilise the benefits of an integrative approach in treating dis-ease.
Whether you want to run a marathon, or whether you want to be able to enjoy your life without having to suffer pain – whatever your goals and aspirations, we work with you to achieve your optimal health.
