Founded by Dr Peter Yan, a cardiologist and Dr Teo Cheng Peng, a haematologist, WL&H is geared to “meet [the] need for a growing number of people who are proactively taking charge of their health, well before the onset of disease.”[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_custom_heading text=”The Insight of Dr Yan” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:20|text_align:left|color:%23040060″ google_fonts=”font_family:Libre%20Baskerville%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1545017420391{margin-bottom: 10px !important;}”][vc_column_text]The goal of setting up a Specialist Wellness Clinic is to “meet a need for a growing number of people who are proactively taking charge of their health, well before the onset of disease.” The WL&H Medical Centre takes a “more proactive and preventive” approach to medicine through preventive wellness.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”18364″ img_size=”375×562″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1423751086688{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]It is common that some people are not yet diagnosed with a disease, but are going day-to-day in a state of “sub-optimal health”.

In order to make preventive wellness personal, WL&H uses the unique P4 Medical model and employs the use of “screenings for genes that are pertinent in understanding the health risks of an individual”. Armed with this information, the WL&H Specialists are able to “accurately analyse the results and interpret them”.

On top of the genetic data, WL&H also “harnesses digital technology” through the use of remote monitoring devices and wearables, syncing the information to the cloud. This allows the medical care to extend beyond the clinic and beyond the episodic nature of diagnostic medicine.

Though the engagement of our trained Personal Trainers and Dietitians, this information can be developed into nutrition and fitness plans which aid you in making better decisions for your wellness.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_custom_heading text=”Going beyond the short-term” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:22|text_align:left|color:%23040060″ google_fonts=”font_family:Libre%20Baskerville%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1545022463721{margin-bottom: 10px !important;}”][vc_column_text]WL&H Medical is developing several “long-term health and wellness programmes” including “wellness destination holidays”. On these holidays, you can expect the programme to “address physical health, emotional wellness, diet, fitness and more”, all in the comforts of carefully selected “beautiful and exotic locations”.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1423749309605{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_inner css=”.vc_custom_1423751101886{margin-bottom: 17px !important;padding-top: 10px !important;}”][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text font_size=”15″]
