Effectively treating both the internal and external aspects of one’s health is critical. Dr. Gagnon believes that sustainable health is only possible when a holistic treatment method to one’s health is pursued.
While it is easy to think of one’s health as only being affected by the maintenance of our internal organs, it’s just not that simple.
The external factors that we face in our day-to-day life have just as much of an effect on how we feel. Managing both the external and internal aspects is a priority with Dr. Gagnon as she wants her patients to enjoy long and sustainable health.
The following aspects are what she prioritizes in her daily practices as she strives to promote sustainable health among her patients:
- Improve health for everyone, not just those who walk through her doors – Promoting healthy lifestyle choices encourages sustainable health for more than just her patients. She encourages patients to educate friends and family about healthy lifestyle choices.
- Use more accessible, and less expensive, treatment methods – Maintaining one’s health is a daily project unto itself, there’s no need to make it any more complicated by making it difficult to find care… or pay for it. Her treatment methods are modern, effective, easy-to-implement, and cost effective. That way she can break down the barriers of traditional healthcare to treat everyone.
- Environmentalism is important, even to your health – Improving the environment is more than a political talking point. Pollution can have detrimental effects on the body, and man-made environmental disasters can have significant after effects that have been shown to worsen the health of nearby residents. Encouraging environmental protection is essential to improving the external factors that face you and your loved ones and directly affect quality of health
