Preventative Care

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is all about avoiding disease and infection and staying healthy. Avoiding serious illness prevents a great deal of suffering and expense and helps you remain active and healthy into old age.

There are two key aspects of preventive care: medical intervention and leading a healthy lifestyle.

What medical interventions does preventive care employ?

The first medical intervention in preventive care that Dr. Eldar utilizes is his wide range of vitamins and supplements to help with the thyroid, GI, the immune system and liver function. Some which include: 

  • Xymogen 
  • Designs For Health 
  • Detox
  • Daily Vitamins 

Another essential element of preventive care is screening, where Dr. Eldar carries out tests and investigations to look for signs that could indicate you have a disease or infection before you experience any symptoms. Conditions Dr. Eldar can screen for include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoporosis
  • Obesity
  • Prostate cancer

Surprisingly, some serious health problems like high blood pressure don’t cause symptoms until your body suffers irreversible damage, so screening may be the only way to tell you have a problem.

In other cases, symptoms only arise at a later stage, when the condition is harder to treat. If Dr. Eldar picks up raised blood sugar that indicates you have prediabetes, for instance, you can take steps to eradicate the problem, instead of facing the chronic health problems of having Type 2 diabetes.

Similarly, screening for colorectal cancer can identify and remove polyps that have the potential to turn cancerous, and a Pap smear can highlight any cervical cells that could be a warning sign of cervical cancer. Cancers found and treated early are far more likely to have a positive outcome than those identified once symptoms are present.

What role does lifestyle play in preventive care?

Everything you do in your life has an impact on your health, so by making better choices in how you live, you can make a significant difference to your health in the short and long term. Healthy living golden rules are:

  • Eat a balanced, varied diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables
  • Take regular exercise, working heart and lungs as well as muscles
  • Find ways to reduce stress and take care of yourself
  • Avoid bad habits like smoking, drinking, and taking drugs
  • Drink plenty of water

Dr. Eldar can also help keep you in good health by prescribing specialist, medical-grade dietary supplements like Xymogen® and Designs for Health®, or providing IV therapy.
