Reasons to Invest in Your Health with a Full Body MOT

Posted in , , by Echelon Health

Safeguarding our health has become the most paramount issue for many of us post pandemic. However, many of us will consider our health only when we start to show symptoms that raise our concerns.

We try to look after our most valuable assets, usually by investing in various forms of protection or running frequent checks to ensure that our assets are optimised. If we consider our health to be our most valuable asset, putting a plan in place for regular check ups should naturally become part of our routine.

We can aid our health by eating healthy food, regular exercise, and improving sleeping habits. However, nobody is flawless, and daily pressures can have an impact, silently raising our risk factors for life-threatening illnesses like cancer or heart disease.

These disorders frequently exist without being identified for many years as they can be asymptomatic. However, what if there was a chance to spot it before any symptoms appeared? This is the underlying principle of Echelon Health’s full body MOT.

What is a Full Body Check?

A full body check is a comprehensive insight into the entire body. It should give you information about the condition of your heart, liver, and kidneys, record health indicators like cholesterol, protein, and muscle mass, and determine your risk of stroke. A procedure to find approaches to enhance your general wellness might be also created with the consultant’s help so that you have a plan of action for the future.

At Echelon Health we are now able to detect diseases faster and sooner than ever before because of the advancements in healthcare technology. It has always been the goal of the healthcare industry to employ health screenings, and full body MOTs in particular, to identify problems before they become more serious. Additionally, because diseases are identified considerably sooner, treatment is more easily accessible and has better outcomes.

You will receive certified advice and support on your health, lifestyle, and fitness with complete confidence thanks to the knowledge and experience of our medical staff as well as our use of the latest cutting-edge imaging technologies through our CT, MRI, and ultrasound scanners.

The Importance of Full Body MOTs

A full body MOT might be a significant step towards enhancing your health. You will be able to evaluate your body for any underlying disorders and choose the best treatment options before any complications arise thanks to our personalised preventative health assessments.

We can customise our assessments to meet your specific needs and worries, giving you the peace of mind that comes with a thorough health check. And, as full-body MOTs are not based on age-groups or statistical risk, you can be sure that all your results are based on your individual information.

What is the Cost of a Full Body MOT?

Whole body MOTs can spot possible health issues way before they become serious; just for that, they are excellent value for money. Of course, depending on what the package includes, prices will change.

Your full body check can be customised at Echelon Health based on the measures, examinations, and observations you need and are medically appropriate for you. Our Healthy Heart package starts at £1,950, and you may choose from a variety of other full body MOT packages, including Core Cancer, Bespoke, Gold, and Platinum Health assessments, depending on your needs.

Benefits of a Full Body Check

The problem of late discovery in a few cases can be completely resolved by a full body MOT. For instance, a Premium Health Assessment at Echelon Health will identify 92% and 95% of the diseases that cause premature death among men and women respectively.

Any hidden health issues can be found and treated with the help of a health MOT. But what are the additional advantages of getting a full body MOT at Echelon Health?

First off, unlike some other preventative tests that anticipate risk factors using statistical models, all of our health MOT packages contain a thorough study of your personal, your individual health. These full-body MOTs assist in spotting health problems in the earliest stages so that required lifestyle adjustments can be taken to stop them from getting out of hand.

They take your family history into account so that recommendations on the prevention and treatment of particular problems can be made for each individual. They also provide you a clear picture of your present health so that you can take proactive steps to improve it.

For each section of the body, we use the right modality, such as MRI, CT, ultrasound, full-body mole screening, ECG, and digital mammograms, to ensure the results are as clear as possible. Our knowledgeable team of up to seven consultants, each with a focus area, will review your scans.

You can be guaranteed that Echelon Health will employ the most cutting-edge medical technology during your full body MOT and that only the equipment that is medically appropriate will be used during your assessment.

Caring for Your Health with Echelon Health

For the first time in 100 years, England’s average life expectancy has plateaued over the last ten years. According to the Marmot Report, which was produced by Professor Sir Michael Marmot, one of the foremost authorities on public health in Britain, and released in early 2020, this is the case (Marmot, 2020)

Although there are numerous complex explanations for this, lifestyle choices undoubtedly have an impact on the leading causes of death in the country, including cancer, heart disease, lung disease, and stroke.
