Health appraisal benefits
When considering embarking upon a new diet or fitness regime, we must first build an appreciation of our current physical and mental state with a health appraisal.
Dr Tonya Coren from Cape Byron Medical Centre, a medical centre in Byron Bay, advocates building an intimate appreciation of our bodies and our health status and undergoing a health appraisal prior to implementing gradual changes that are pragmatic, aspirational, though achievable given work or family commitments.
A consultation with your local GP will enable you to thoroughly appraise your health. According to Dr Coren a health appraisal can help prevent most diseases or lifestyle-induced illness or injury if pre-dispositions are identified and appropriate measures taken to remedy or impede further development.
