An annual health/wellness exam is one of the best ways for early detection of serious medical problems, and to maintain your health. Visiting your health care practitioner’s
office each year allows your practitioner to discuss potential illnesses and health concerns before they become serious, like vitamin/mineral deficiencies, digestion issues,
high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol, while offering ways to improve
your nutrition and lifestyle. Wellness exams can also provide the assurance that
you are healthy and doing well.

To ensure the practitioner can make a complete analysis of your health,
it is important that you provide specific information regarding your
medication/supplement use and family history.
Be prepared before you arrive.
Bring a list of any medications/supplements you take regularly with dosages.
This includes prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements.
Expect to update any family history that is new or pertains to your health.
Be prepared to discuss the following:
1. Exercise habits
2. Diet and nutrition
3. Lifestyle habits, such as smoking
During an annual exam,
your practitioner will conduct a series of health checks,
including the following:
1. Blood pressure
2. Heart rate
3. Respiration rate
5. Bio Scan Analysis
6. System pH level
7. Physical Exam
8. Detailed Interview
- "The goal of an annual health/wellness exam is to review your
general health and compare it to last years results, so as to get a
good image of your healthy and not so healthy habits. This will help
allow for prevention of future disease and illness, and to balance any
problems you currently have before they manifest into signs and
symptoms of sub-standard health." -
- Dr. Marty Edwards,ND
