Prior to this, if you asked me what functional medicine was, I would know nuts about it. This was term which was very new, almost alien to me too because I have never of it before. But I have heard of the quote, “Prevention is better than cure.”
It simply means that it is better to stop something bad from happening than it is to deal with it after it has happened. With this very concept in mind, comes Elements Medical Fitness
, which is strategically located at GTower Kuala Lumpur, with a life changing healthcare solution.
Elements Medical Fitness is Malaysia’s first medically integrated health and fitness center based on the principle of functional medicine. It prides itself on creating a healthier and fitter individual by providing a one-stop health & fitness solutions from health screening, integrative medical programs to personalize fitness programs. Regular check-ups enable individuals to predict and diagnose lifestyle related health diseases at an earlier stage. The results prevent escalation and prepare better physiological effect to individual.
Regular check-ups enable individuals to predict and diagnose lifestyle related health diseases at an earlier stage. The results prevent escalation and prepare better physiological effect to individual, which is why I took up the chance to get a full body check up done at Elements Medical Fitness. For this, I have to complete a comprehensive Medical Fitness Questionnaire, Blood Pressure Test and Blood Sampling are taken for lab test.
The results of the testing will only be available about a few weeks later, with the results explained thoroughly with the in-house doctor who will help you to interpret what each of the results meant. In addition to that, the doctor will also guide you on the actions which you can take to improve your health at those areas that are lacking. The purpose of this testing, actually helps to tell you exactly where your body need extra work on. More often than not, without the test, we often try to approach the healthy lifestyle by doing anything that is healthy. Sometimes that works, but sometimes it doesn’t.
But with this check up, you can then work on specifically the areas which can be improved. In my case, I have received a generally positive results, except that my cholesterol was although in the normal range but it can be improved by eating more fish oils supplement. See, it’s that easy. All this while I thought my body is completely fine but that is the thing, there are certain deficiency that our bodies don’t show until it gets super serious. For my case, it was normal still for now but in the long run, I could risk having high cholestrol. It’s great and a relief indeed to have taken this check up so I now know what I can do to improve further.
Besides that, Elements Medical Fitness also have various other programs and services which they offer such as specifically tailored programmes ie. Stop Smoking, Chronic Pain, Return to Fitness, Active Ageing, Stress & Fatigue, Balancing Your Hormones, Wellgene, Weight Loss and Metabolic Diseaseas. In addition to these programme, there is also the gym membership which you can sign up for as well, along with the option of personal training as well as group fitness.
