Straight Talk from the Doc: Center for Healthy Living

By on January 7, 2019

Watching The Center for Healthy Living come to life is so encouraging because it truly demonstrates The Outer Banks Hospital’s complete commitment to our community’s health and well-being.

As an integrative and lifestyle medicine practitioner, I’ve learned that incorporating complementary therapies into the healing space can help improve a patient’s health outcome and quality of life.

Some of the therapies offered at the Center focus on:

  • Improving nutritional habits
  • Developing a safe exercise plan
  • Quitting smoking — for good
  • Learning to cope with stress, anxiety and other emotional concerns
  • Encouraging better sleep
  • Modifying drinking habits
  • Discovering how to manage a newly diagnosed chronic disease such as COPD or diabetes
  • Managing symptoms caused by cancer and/or chronic disease
  • Focusing on spirituality or on what brings you joy.

Working in partnership with your primary care or specialist doctor, we can help you to navigate the path to health and wellness.

I’m proud to be a part of the team at The Center for Healthy Living. More importantly, I look forward to inspiring members of our community to achieve their goals so that they may live their healthiest life.

— Dr. Christina Bowen, Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine Physician
