In the pursuit of optimal health, the importance of a comprehensive and functional approach cannot be overstated. The recent success of the Army’s Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) program, showcasing a significant one-third reduction in suicides among participating units, underscores the transformative potential of functional health. As we delve into the profound impact of this approach, NuMed Primary Care emerges as a pioneering force, offering tailored solutions that align with the principles of functional medicine.
Functional Health: A Path to Military Resilience
Functional health, often synonymous with holistic well-being, emphasizes a personalized and integrative approach to healthcare. The early data from the H2F program highlights the tangible benefits of adopting a functional health mindset, with participating military units experiencing not only a noteworthy decrease in suicides but also lower rates of detrimental behaviors such as substance abuse and physical injuries.
In the face of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, units without the H2F program reported increases in negative outcomes across the board. In stark contrast, brigades incorporating holistic health practices witnessed a mitigation of these negative impacts, demonstrating the power of functional health in promoting resilience and well-being.
