We know more about health and how the human body works today than ever before in history and yet the incidence of chronic disease, obesity, diabetes, auto-immune disease, etc. is increasing. Modern medicine has made significant advances in the treatment of infection, surgery, the management of chronic illness and yet many are still suffering the effects of chronic disease.
Optimum health differs for everyone. Our health is determined by genetics, environment, food, air, stress, movement, access to healthcare, etc. That’s both good and bad news because while we can’t control every aspect of our health, we can make choices that have a positive effect on our health. We can control our food, our movement, the way we respond to stress, etc. Regardless of condition, age, etc. there is always something you can do to improve your health.
Dr. Kent works with you to optimize your health. We work together to identify and understand your health goals and then develop a plan to help you achieve them. There isn’t always a cure, we can’t always reverse disease processes, we often won’t be able to return to “the best shape of our lives”, but we can always take steps to optimize the health that is available to us today.
Hippocrates said "“It is far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has.” What does that mean? It means we work together and focus on optimizing your health and we let your MD's worry about managing your disease.
