Welcome to Bayless Healthcare

Bayless Healthcare strives to be your whole family’s Primary Care Partner, where “care” is our passion. We focus on your entire health and wellness and have doctors and healthcare providers ready and trained to work with all ages. Together, we are dedicated to support your family’s physical and emotional needs.

Health impacts the whole family. For example, parents who have children that suffer from asthma may notice that when upset, their asthma gets worse. Likewise, feelings of hopelessness and anxiety or worry often come along with children who have chronic illnesses and can also impact parents and loved ones. Bayless Healthcare has the ability to treat the whole person and promote total health for the entire family.

Bayless Healthcare is not just problem focused but rather acts in advance using a proactive approach that can increase your family’s potential and overall health. Getting over your pain or illness is only part of the package. We also want to help you learn ways to stay healthy so that you can spend your time making positive decisions for you and your family. This is not a traditional doctor–patient relationship; rather, it is a partnership to improve health, prevent disease, and promote your well-being. Visit us or contact our team at Bayless Healthcare today – we appreciate the opportunity to be your Primary Care Partner.

“My mum has spent her life believing that she's fat and hating herself for it. Her dearest wish was to spare me that fate. With the very best intentions she closely monitored my developing body, talked constantly about the perils of weight gain and policed my appetite in a way that she never did with my brothers. She didn't realize that she was helping to instill in me the very thing she was trying so hard to avoid: body hatred.” So begins Kasey Edwards recent article, “How to talk to your daughter about weight”, in which she offers several strategies for parents on how to help their daughters feel good about their bodies, asserting, “Body hatred isn't about how you look, it's about how you feel about how you look.” As Edwards points out, “When you're taught that your body weight is central to your worth and happiness, and that snacking on anything other than celery sticks is shameful, developing body insecurity is almost inevitable — regardless of your BMI… I have interviewed women with supermodel physiques who loathe their bodies and are obsessed with losing the 'last five kilograms'. And I know of women with bigger bodies than me who haven't a shred of body hatred.” So how can you make sure that your daughters, no matter what their size, feel good about their bodies? Edwards recommends avoiding talking about weight -- your, theirs, or anyone else’s -- in front of your girls; she writes, “I want them to understand that a person's weight is as unrelated to self-worth as their height.” Instead, she explains, “Focus on how bodies work rather than how they look. We celebrate all the amazing things Violet can do with her body — such as running, jumping, skipping, rolling. She has come to value her body in terms of what it can do rather than how it looks.” When it comes to food, she says, “Never talk about food in terms of calories or what's fattening. When we talk about food we talk about its nutritional value.” As a consequence, there are no banned foods in their house: “Violet understands that… [i]f she ate too much cake, then she wouldn't be able to fit in all the other foods that her body needs.” She also encourages teaching girls to listen to their own bodies: “I tell Violet that her body knows when it's hungry and when it's full, so all she needs to do is listen to it… Feeling in control of her own appetite and trusting her body's signals is more important than how much she eats.” Edwards is also “acutely aware that mothers don't hold the only keys to their daughters' body images. The diet, beauty and cosmetic surgery industries are masterful in cultivating insecurity in girls and women. But I'm not going to surrender to them without a fight.” In the end, she says, “My job is to help my girls love their bodies, not hate them. And by doing so I hope they will make healthy choices, because we are more likely to look after the things we love.” To read all of Edwards' tips on talking to your daughter about weight on Daily Life, visit bit.ly/1BYqPHa For two great books for children about the importance of loving yourself, we highly recommend "I Like Myself" for ages 3 to 8 (www.amightygirl.com/i-like-myself) and "A Smart Girl's Guide to Liking Herself, Even on the Bad Days" for ages 9 to 12 (www.amightygirl.com/a-smart-girl-s-guide-to-liking-herself) For an excellent new release focused on body image issues for teens 13 and up, check out "The Body Image Workbook for Teens: Activities to Help Girls Develop a Healthy Body Image in an Image-Obsessed World" for ages 13 and up (www.amightygirl.com/body-image-workbook) If you'd like to foster a healthy self-image in your Mighty Girl, you'll find dozens of empowering books for girls and young women in our "Self-Esteem & Body Image" section at www.amightygirl.com/books/personal-development/life-challenges?cat=378 And, for resources for parents on encouraging a healthy self-esteem and positive body image in their daughters, visit our "Body Image" parenting section at www.amightygirl.com/parenting/body-image-self-esteem -- or check out one of our favorite resources, "101 Ways to Help Your Daughter Love Her Body," at www.amightygirl.com/101-ways-to-help-your-daughter
