What Does Being Healthy Mean To You?
Positive Health Program
Health is not just being the ideal weight. Medical professionals look at many different factors when we manage your health.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) maintains that “health is the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”
The team at Hawthorne Clinic has devised a Positive Health Program for you. This will help motivate you to eat healthily, move healthily and live healthily. This, in turn, will help you to be healthy.
The Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP) strongly encourages health promotion and preventative care in the prevention of illness. Our Positive Health Program will focus on disease and illness prevention rather than treatment.
Your GP is perfectly placed to work with you to prevent illness and achieve good health.

Following a thorough medical check and body composition analysis, we will design you a program involving help from dieticians, exercise professionals and possibly even psychologists to steer you towards achieving and maintaining good health.
MORE ON OUR BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS
Body composition scales enable your GP to analyse various elements of your health. At Hawthorne Clinic we use our body composition scales for a large range of patients, not simply those who want to lose weight.
Fat percentage and mass, BMI and fat distribution are all measurements that enable your GP to determine whether you are at risk of any lifestyle related illnesses.
Tracking bone mass enables your GP to monitor bone health and help assess for osteoporosis risk.
Muscle mass and muscle distribution will help your GP in assessing whether an athlete is at their peak ability to perform, or if a patient after a stay in hospital needs to improve their nutrition and exercise to manage frailty.
Book for a body composition analysis to help you optimise your health and wellbeing.
We look forward to helping you achieve the healthiest version of you.
Note: You may qualify for some Medicare assistance towards elements of this program.
