hi, i’m heather
A HEALTH & WELLNESS CONSULTANT
Get Better With Heather evolved from a desire to help people “get better” at life – health, wellness and longevity. I have been in the medical field for longer than I would like to admit, but during that time I have wondered ”what if….”. What if people are armed with the knowledge and skills to prevent injury and illness? What if we (clinicians as a whole) did a better job to prevent illness? Why is this not happening on a grander scale?
What sent me in the direction of the healthcare field was a desire to make a difference in people’s lives and help them get better. What I have found over the years, though, is that we are reactive versus proactive when it comes to attaining health. We expect that arthritis is inevitable, that everyone ends up on blood pressure medicine at some point. In the US, today, a large proportion of adults have at least one and very often 2 chronic diseases – preventable diseases!
Much of our health or lack thereof is a lifestyle choice. These choices are not always easy, but without knowing how to “get better health” we often fall into habits that are detrimental, aging us well beyond our years.
So, my mission here is to help people get better, before illness and complications from chronic disease. To motivate people to make choices that positively affect their health and longevity.
Hope you enjoy the journey to better health and well-being!
