Supermodel Emme and Executive Medicine of Texas join forces to urge Americans to take charge of their health.
Celebrating 5 years cancer free, Emme undergoes cutting edge tests that reveal eye opening news about how her body is aging from the inside out.
Dallas, TX – June 20, 2012 - Supermodel, television personality and nationally recognized women’s advocate, Emme, spent a lot of time caring for her outward appearance in the high pressure modeling world. After battling cancer in 2007, the icon and one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People”, now 48, turned her focus inward and began researching ways to maintain the inner health of her body. That research led Emme to a recent meeting with Walter Gaman, MD a leader in preventative and proactive medical care. Dr. Gaman, one of the founders of the Executive Medicine of Texas and co-host of the nationally syndicated radio program, “The Staying Young Show,” encouraged Emme to undergo the center’s Platinum Executive Physical which is a comprehensive half day exam that uncovers deficiencies, conditions and behaviors allowing patients to make corrections before its too late.
Now cancer -free for 5 years, the creator of Emmenation.com, an online community where Emme shares her lifelong commitment to living a healthy and fit life with others, underwent a full spectrum of exams from micronutrient testing to telomere analysis which reveals your real age on a cellular level. She says digging a little deeper into how her body is functioning has given her a sense of control over her long-term well being.
“What a wonderful opportunity to see yourself literally inside out! I feel I have a precious health map that will help me achieve my optimum health, right at my finger tips," Emme says.
Voted one of the Best Doctors in Texas by Newsweek Magazine in 2010, Gaman hopes partnering with a nationally recognized health and wellness advocate will help others see the benefit of taking a pro-active approach to preventative health. “Emme is in great physical shape and her fitness level surpasses a great number of my patients. I was happily surprised to see how her strides for better health have kept her young and healthy – even at the cellular level.” Gaman continues, “ Just because you may have had a brush with a life threatening disease, it’s never too late to start taking care of your body. Each day you have to make choices that will either prolong your life or shorten it.”
While Emme, who has devoted the next chapter of her career to educating women how to stay strong and healthy, was relieved to learn she is in better shape than many women her age, she also discovered areas that need some immediate attention. “When I learned I had hypothyroidism and anemia and a few vitamin deficiencies, it was actually a relief to learn what was causing me to feel tired and to be able to address the issues and fix them. I now have homework to pump it up nutritionally and to implement changes in my physical level to achieve my personal best,” she adds.
Top executives from around the world fly in to meet with Dr. Gaman and his business partner, Dr. Mark Anderson, MD who have also co-authored the book, Stay Young: 10 Proven Steps to Ultimate Health. Gaman says, “In today’s busy world of increased demands, we need our health more than ever. Whether you’re an executive, professional athlete or stay at home mom, high energy and good health is not a luxury.”
