Everyday, your brain accounts for roughly 20% of your total energy use.
That’s more than any other organ in your body.
So if brains are so important to our bodies’ overall functioning, why is mental health often overlooked by the traditional healthcare system?
Each year, 1 in 5 U.S. adults experiences mental illness. Yet fewer than 50% receive treatment.
That’s why at EDISON BIO, we make sure to help all of our Members improve their mental health in addition to their physical health. We recognize that chronic illness can manifest itself in the body as well as in the mind. And we know that to truly increase your performance and expand your longevity, you need to optimize both your physical and mental wellbeing.
How Strong Is Your Mental and Physical Health?
For many people, suffering from poor brain health and chronic illness has (unfortunately) become the norm. Too often people go through life struggling with things like low energy, decreased cognitive functioning and disease—all while neglecting ways to improve their overall wellness.
However, on the other hand, there are some people who actually do prioritize their mental and physical health. These are the kinds of people who benefit from increased longevity, maximized performance and overall peace of mind.
The question is: which category do you fall into?
Take a moment to close your eyes. Now try to imagine what your current health would look like if it were a type of machine.
What do you see?
- Is it like an old, broken down, barely-holding-on pick-up truck?
- Or is it more like a Ferrari with a V12 engine and more than 830 horsepower?
In other words, when you think about your mental and physical health, what feelings arise?
- Are you lost, scared and overwhelmed by the lack of control you have over your wellness?
- Or do you feel calm, knowledgeable and equipped to take on whatever the future holds?
Most people fall in the former category. In fact James McDonough was inspired to create EDISON BIO out of these very same feelings of fear.
But before we can tell you how to transform your mental and physical health, we need to explain why it looks the way it does in the first place.
Why You’re Stuck With Poor Health
The last time you went in for your annual physical, what kinds of technology did your doctor use to evaluate you? Revolutionary early-detection cancer blood tests? Or the same, basic lab draws that have been around for years?
The truth is, the traditional health system in the United States is not interested in providing you with the most advanced, preventive and personalized care. Instead, they take a reactionary approach to medicine that focuses on sick-care over proactive health strategies.
What this means, then, is that many people are left guessing about the actual state of their health and have little knowledge concerning what risks they might face in the future. Many times, their doctors are not invested in increasing their performance and longevity but instead only address diseases once they’ve already become life-threatening issues.
So if you’ve only ever depended on the traditional healthcare system, it makes sense why your mental and physical health would suffer. No one has helped you optimize your wellness to its highest potential.
How You Can Improve Your Mental and Physical Wellbeing
In order to transform your mental and physical wellness, you need to start by investing in an executive health program. But while there are many executive health services out there to choose from, not all of them are created equally.
In fact, many executive health programs have fallen behind technologically in what they actually offer their patients. Because of this, EDISON BIO’s Advanced Executive Health Exam was created to help the highest-achieving people on the planet become the healthiest versions of themselves.
At its core, EDISON BIO helps its Members improve their mental and physical wellbeing through three simple steps:
1. Showing You the Current State of Your Health
Through an Advanced Executive Health Exam, EDISON BIO Members gain incredibly detailed and comprehensive insight into their minds and bodies. As part of this exam, each Member receives:
- Micronutrient analysis
- A full-body MRI
- Clinically-approved sleep analysis tests
- Full-genome sequencing
- Mental health screening
- Advanced biomarker analysis
- And so much more.
By using the most innovative medical technologies available, EDISON BIO provides Members with a deep understanding of the current state of their health.
2. Revealing the Risks You Might Face
In addition to uncovering their present health status, EDISON BIO helps Members recognize and prevent health risks that they may face in the future.
It is much easier to prevent a disease than to treat it once it has become a life-threatening issue. That’s why EDISON BIO invests in primary and secondary prevention strategies. These strategies allow Members to take a proactive approach to their wellness and gain peace of mind concerning their health.
3.Helping You Know How To Improve Your Performance and Longevity
Unlike many other executive healthcare programs, EDISON BIO doesn’t just help patients live lives free from disease. We go a step further by providing our Members with personalized recommendations for how they can optimize their diets, exercise and lifestyle behaviors.
We recognize that each of our Members’ bodies are unique—so the care they receive should be too. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to expanding health potential. Our Members walk away knowing how to increase their longevity and improve their performance, all according to their unique health results.
Wrapping Up: What Do You Want Your Health To Look Like?
To best achieve your goals, gain peace of mind and protect your health, we wouldn’t recommend relying on any broken, outdated systems. Instead, EDISON BIO can help you improve your mental and physical health so that you can finally take control of your wellness.
