As your trusted partner in health and wellness, we’ve decided to flip the script this Valentine’s Day. Don’t get us wrong, we love love, but since it’s American Heart Month we figured we’d take this opportunity to talk about the heart from a different perspective. This year the American Heart Association is putting a lot of attention in women health since Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more women than all forms of cancer combined
While we often hear about what not to do when it comes to heart health, we are here today to focus on five things you can do to show your heart some love!
With January behind us and the rest of 2021 ahead of us, we want to remind you that it’s never too late to set an intention to better your health and wellbeing. Over the past year we’ve seen just what a difference a preventative approach to healthcare can make, and our hope is that if there’s a single takeaway from 2020 it’s that there’s no time like the present to prioritize your health.
As the holidays approach and infection rates of COVID-19 are on the rise, we want to share some information to help you celebrate as safely as possible. The CDC shows that more than 11 million people in the U.S. have now been infected, with more than 1 million infections occurring in just one week in mid-November. This really concerns us, and our priority is keeping you and your family healthy. We hope that you’ll consider the risks when thinking about how you’ll spend time with friends and family during the holiday, as even a small gathering can carry some big risks.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated collection of plasma obtained from a patient’s own blood. A sample of blood is taken from the patient, then via centrifuge, concentrated down to a collection of platelets, proteins, enzymes, and growth factors that are key in the body’s own regenerative process. This distilled collection can then be injected into an area of injury in order to accelerate healing. It has been used extensively in the world of professional sports, but is also used around the world for patients and athletes of all skill levels.
Before the mass migration to urban cities, there was a time when the doctor was much more integrated in the community. They were a part of the extended family, knew the family background, and developed a relationship with the family members based on trust.
When we started Pravan a few years ago we did so with the belief that the current healthcare system was outdated. Old medical offices with decor from the 1980s and paper files stored in physical cabinets, where you are just a “number” didn’t feel right.
How are you doing?
It’s been a rough few months, and most of us are likely some version of drained. As much as we focus on physical health at Pravan, we have always recognized the critical roles mental and emotional health play in keeping a person well.
With everything going on, we want to support you in all the ways we can. Whether through self-care support or a more hands-on approach, we want you to know that we’re here for you.
