It is important to develop a good plan to help protect yourself and your family members from the wide variety of tick-borne disease. Prevention strategies from a through body examine after being outdoors to the use of repellent sprays, tick repellent clothing or special designed leg covers
are your biggest defense against becoming infected. In addition to protecting yourself don't forget your four legged friends. Consult your vet as to the best treatment for your pet. Treatment for pets should be year round as it is possible for ticks to still be around in colder weather months.

So, is this really something worth you investing your money in and if not why? Testing not collaborated between you and your primary care physician is not wise. If your Life Line Screening has any abnormal result, your primary care physician will need to evaluate your personal risk factors and if warranted order testing that will be covered by your insurance company. Mass screenings done by private entities can do more harm than good. To get a more en-depth perspective read "Don't Reach for Life Script Screenings".
Preventive health focuses on taking measure to prevent disease as opposed to treating disease. Routine screenings based on risk factors, family history, and age are a facet of preventive health. However, more importantly, it is vital to establish a working relationship with a medical professional (primary care physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant) who can help evaluate, coordinate and monitor your healthcare. Striving to make healthier food choices, reduction of stress, smoking cessation, adequate sleep and exercise can help reduce your risk of disease. Together you and your practitioner can outline your wellness objectives and seek to achieve them over your lifetime.
