Physician-Led Group Visits this Month: Metabolic Groups with Dr. Ruan!

Group Visits at TCLM are an exciting way to get plugged in, meet people who are struggling with similar symptoms and challenges, and receive actionable tools and resources to help you on your journey toward health. 

Last week, Dr. Ruan led an insightful Metabolic Group Visit, offering participants a platform to explore various facets of health and well-being. The session revealed encouraging strides as attendees shared their progress in setting SMART goals and actively working towards them. Their dedication to enhancing their lifestyles and taking control of their health was inspiring.

Throughout the discussion, emphasis was placed on the significance of setting SMART goals—goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Attendees were also encouraged to embrace challenges, recognizing that setbacks can yield valuable lessons and opportunities for growth.

Personal goals were a focal point, with attendees sharing aspirations such as creating dedicated meditation spaces and increasing vegetable intake. These objectives serve as integral steps towards enhancing overall well-being, with an emphasis on celebrating progress and maintaining resilience in the face of challenges.

Regarding medication management, attendees were reminded to adhere to prescribed regimens and seek clarification if needed. Open communication with healthcare providers ensures optimized treatment plans tailored to individual needs. In many group visits, Dr. Ruan opens the floor for participants to ask any specific health questions related to their current challenges. In this specific group, members asked for tips to manage allergy symptoms. 

Looking ahead, participants were encouraged to persist in setting and pursuing SMART goals, with an emphasis on proactive planning to overcome obstacles. As preparations are made for the next scheduled visit, attendees were reminded of the clinic's unwavering support and readiness to address any concerns or unexpected symptoms.

When managing challenging symptoms or attempting to reach a weight loss and health goal, it can be so helpful (and more fulfilling) to reach those goals in the context of a group. Often, we realize that we are not the only ones who are dealing with a particular challenge, and we can learn from each other's questions, accomplishments, and setbacks.
