Grow Towards Your Health & Wellness
My newest screening evaluation utilizes the Butterfly IQ.
This tool performs a carotid doppler sonogram test, a non-invasive assessment that uses sound waves to determine hardening of arteries or potential blockages caused by plaque.
The hand held Butterfly IQ carotid doppler is like no other. It will capture images that will be sent immediately to Dr. Craig Backs while you sit with me. Within moments, these images will give Dr. Backs enough information to determine whether plaque is present and if he needs to personally prescribe preventative measures at his office.
Understanding the importance of living a healthy lifestyle is essential.
It is vital to combine a quality nutritional profile with physical activity as combining these two reduces the risk of health maladies such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.
We should be health conscious about what kind of foods we buy and what benefits our microbiome. I purchase meals from Gud Gut Cuisine, a local food service here in Springfield, IL that delivers my meals throughout the week to my work office. They make meals specifically for optimal gut microbiome, which plays a huge role in our overall health. Healthy meals optimize our digestion and benefit our immune system. Unhealthy eating causes an imbalance in our digestive tract that causes inflammation, which in turn causes weight gain and many other health disorders.
