What is preventative medical care? 
Many serious medical problems people frequently face are preventable with the proper care and foresight. Preventative medical care focuses on ensuring that patients remain healthy and avoid preventable issues and conditions like heart disease and cancer. Routine preventative medical care can help you live a healthy life and ensure that your body and mind remain intact for years to come.

Do I need preventative medical care? 
Seeing your doctor regularly has many benefits. Regular preventative screenings for various types of cancers, heart disease, and diabetes can greatly increase your odds of finding and treating these issues early when treatments work best. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chronic diseases like these are responsible for 70% of American deaths each year. Preventative medical care in conjunction with eating healthy, exercising regularly, and avoiding known problem-causers like tobacco can help you live a long and complication-free life.

Could you benefit from integrative medicine? Although traditional medicine concentrates solely on treating symptoms, integrative medicine integrative medicineis patient-centered and considers the many factors that affect your health. Dr. Kevin Chan uses integrative medicine techniques to help his Phoenix, AZ, patients improve their health and manage chronic conditions.

Integrative medicine considers the whole person

Doctors who practice integrative medicine consider physical symptoms along with lifestyle, emotional, environmental and social influences when diagnosing and treating illnesses, diseases, and conditions. Your Phoenix doctor works with you to identify the source of your symptoms and identify treatments that will not only ease your symptoms but prevent them from recurring, if possible.

Integrative medicine doctors don't just use medications and traditional treatment methods. They understand that alternative medicine can also be effective in relieving stress and treating many chronic and acute conditions. Depending on your illness or condition, your treatment plan may include conventional treatment, alternative treatment or a mixture of both types of treatments.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Have you become accustomed to 10-minute appointments with doctors who seem to barely listen to your symptoms? You'll be pleasantly surprised when you arrive for your appointment with your new doctor. Integrative medicine physicians don't rush through appointments and spend time getting to know you. In addition to reviewing your medical history, chronic conditions, and current symptoms, your doctor will ask questions about your family life, job, hobbies and stress level. He'll help you understand the cause of your illness and condition and explain how you can make changes in your life that will reduce or eliminate your symptoms.

You are an active participant in your care. Your doctor wants to hear your questions and concerns, along with ideas about ways you can improve your health. In fact, your beliefs and opinions are always treated with respect and never dismissed. Establishing a productive, positive relationship with your physician is the key to optimizing your health and managing chronic conditions.

Integrative medicine can help you take charge of your health. Call Dr. Kevin Chan of Pineapple Health in Phoenix, AZ, office at (480) 961-2366 to schedule your appointment.

Some patients think that the only fat reduction treatment that will benefit them is liposuction surgery to suck out fat cells that have formedcoolsculpting beneath the skin. Other solutions are available to get rid of those stubborn fat deposits. You may be excited to learn more about CoolSculpting, a cosmetic option offered by the team at Pineapple Health in Phoenix, AZ. It can help you increase your confidence in the way your clothes fit, how you look to the world, and how you look in the mirror.

CoolSculpting Treatment
Freezing fat cells causes them to become inactive, and they eventually move out of your body. That is the concept behind CoolSculpting. Your cosmetic doctor places a special tool against the skin, applying targeted cold energy that reaches the fat cells below the skin layer. The procedure is quick and the results are long-term. The fat elimination process continues over the course of several months.

Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting gives you a slimmer look in all of the places you desire. It’s a viable alternative to liposuction surgery, which can come with complications and an extended healing period. Expect minimal discomfort during and after a CoolSculpting treatment with your Phoenix doctor, which commonly takes under an hour. It may take longer if you need more than one area treated. In most cases, you can go back to business as usual right after the appointment.

A More Contoured Body
Most people consider a contoured and shapely figure to be the aesthetic ideal. Dieting, exercising, yoga, and stretching doesn’t always provide targeted results. CoolSculpting can get your body closer to your desired shape. CoolSculpting can be used on the abdomen, sides (flank), and thighs. Imagine how exciting it would be to finally fit in your favorite jeans from the past, or have your beach body just in time for the summer.

A Better Body After One Visit
You can see a significant improvement in the shape and contours of your figure by seeing a specialist at Pineapple Health in Phoenix, AZ for a CoolSculpting treatment. Contact the office by calling (480) 961-2366 today for an appointment with Dr. Kevin Chan.
