Women’s Health Q & A

How do annual exams promote women’s health?

Annual well-woman exams focus on preventing disease and promoting your long-term wellness. Chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure take years to develop. When you have regular exams, these diseases are identified at an early stage. They’re preventable with dietary, nutritional, and positive lifestyle changes.

Many women’s gynecologic conditions are similar to chronic diseases because they gradually develop for years before growing large enough to cause symptoms. With a comprehensive exam at Fairfield Family Health, your doctor can detect subtle changes, diagnose the problem, and provide natural treatments to restore your health.

What should women know about heart disease?

Coronary heart disease is the top cause of death in women. Like other chronic conditions, taking steps to change issues like poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and being overweight, can help prevent heart disease. Naturopathic doctors specialize in helping patients with all these aspects of their life.
