Taking control of your health may seem like a daunting task, but with small, ongoing health improvements, you can live a healthy and fulfilling life; even if you’re at risk of or living with a chronic condition.
When Angus, 65, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, he sought help from a team of health professionals to get his health back on track.
“I asked my GP to refer me to Black Swan Health’s diabetes program after researching diabetes programs in my area. I was curious and didn’t really know what to expect from it, but I was delighted with the experience I had,” said Angus.
“Overall, I am now maintaining healthy lifestyle improvements and able to live an enjoyable life. This might not have been possible without the Black Swan Health team.”
Learning about your condition and how to manage it can do wonders for your physical and mental health, according to Black Swan Health’s Clinical Psychologist (Reg), Rachel Home.
“I can’t overstate the importance of discovering a sense of control – this enables and encourages you to actively manage your condition,” said Rachel.
