Wellness Q & A

What are some of the signs of poor health?

You know when you’re sick that your body is fighting an illness. However, many “hidden” health problems cause subtle signs that indicate suboptimal body function. For example, some of the symptoms of poor health that you might dismiss include:

  • Fatigue
  • Dull, dry skin
  • Slowly growing hair and nails
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Unintended weight loss or gain
  • Trouble losing weight
  • Chronic headaches
  • Pelvic pain
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Abnormal menstrual cycle

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, make an appointment to meet with Reshma for a wellness consultation. Optimizing your health now reduces your risk of chronic disease later and helps you maintain an active, fulfilling life. 

How is wellness assessed?

At Ananda Integrative Medicine, Reshma begins with a 30-minute complimentary wellness consultation. You can either meet with Reshma in the comfortable offices at Ananda Integrative Medicine or have a secure video conference from the comfort of your own home. 

Depending on your consultation, Reshma may recommend additional testing to collect more information about your health and wellness. For example, blood tests can show elevated cholesterol and glucose levels. She can also test for vitamin and mineral deficiency as well as heavy metal toxicity. 

She might also recommend a test to assess the stiffness of your arteries. Arterial stiffening is an early warning sign of atherosclerosis, a leading cause of heart disease and stroke. Additionally, stiff arteries damage the capillaries that nourish your muscles and organs with fresh blood. 

Reshma also provides nutrigenomic testing and other genetic tests to identify your specific needs and to gather information about how you will respond to particular treatments and medications. 

How can I enhance my health and wellness?

Reshma creates customized wellness plans designed to address your specific needs. For example, if you have signs of arterial stiffening, she might recommend adding vitamin D and vitamin K into your diet or having vitamin injections. Studies show these vitamins can slow or even prevent arterial stiffening. 

She might also recommend detoxification treatments, personalized nutritional coaching, bioidentical hormone therapy, and other natural therapies to enhance your health.
