Wellness Q & A

What is wellness?

Your wellness includes your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. All components, much like all of your body systems, work together for optimal function and vitality. 

However, modern life is full of stress, nutritionally deficient foods, and demands on your time that get in the way of making the best choices for your health and wellness. Additionally, hormonal imbalances and other genetically driven conditions can detract from your health. 

What services are included in the wellness program?

At VNC Wellness Center, Dr. Ugwu offers personalized wellness programs to optimize your overall health and well-being. 

He begins with a comprehensive consultation and lab tests to assess your current health, from your blood pressure and blood sugar levels to your emotional health, exercise habits, and diet. 

After assessing your current state of being, Dr. Ugwu creates your wellness program. He works with you to implement lifestyle changes and provide treatments, enabling you to enhance your well-being and quality of life. Some of the standard components of a wellness program include:

Weight loss

Being overweight or obese interferes with your body function, including your hormone production and blood pressure. It also increases your chances of developing health problems ranging from diabetes to cancer. Dr. Ugwu offers customized weight loss support, including HCG creams and injections. 

Hormone replacement therapy

A hormonal imbalance can cause a variety of disruptive physical and emotional symptoms. If your lab tests reveal a hormonal imbalance, Dr. Ugwu offers hormone replacement therapy, including testosterone and estrogen, for men and women. 

Nutrition 

The food you consume has a significant impact on your body function and overall wellness. Dr. Ugwu helps you improve your diet with a personalized meal plan and supplement recommendations. 

How can I improve my wellness?

You can improve your wellness with healthy choices. For example, you should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise, like a brisk walk, every day. 

Exercise improves your cardiovascular health, helps your body convert glucose to energy, and promotes muscle and bone health. 

You can also make healthy dietary choices and take steps to manage stress. You can also book an appointment with Dr. Ugwu at VNC Wellness Center for a personalized wellness assessment and program.
