Health Screenings You Should Make Time For

In this episode, we delve into the important topic of health screenings and why making time for them should be a priority in our lives. As individuals, we often find ourselves caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily routines, neglecting our health until a problem arises. However, preventative care through regular screenings can be the key to early detection and intervention, potentially saving lives.Picture a landscape where understanding your health baseline is the foundation for longevity, and where confronting the discomfort of transparency with your doctor is the first step to healing. As a black woman, I'm candid about the initial hesitance to share sensitive information and how breaking past that barrier can lead to empowerment and better health outcomes. From the value of blood pressure readings to the role of breast self-exams and cervical cancer screenings, this conversation is a testament to the power of knowledge and proactive care.Let's tackle the myriad of health screenings with the courage of self-advocates. In this episode, I also talk about why keeping a medical journal is important and how it isn't just paperwork; it's self-empowerment. And understanding the importance of knowing your blood type goes beyond mere curiosity—it could be life-saving.This episode tackles the wide range of screenings, from cholesterol and diabetes to dental and eye exams, stressing their interconnectedness with overall health.  Support the showThank you for listening to Tea With Tanya.
