Lifestyle Medicine

What Is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle medicine is a science-based approach that uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions as the primary modality to prevent, manage, & potentially reverse chronic diseases.

Through evidence-based, whole-person, prescriptive lifestyle changes help patients to achieve their optimal health. 

 

Applying the 6 pillars of lifestyle medicine and being mindful of your food choices, managing your stress, being physically active, avoiding risky substance use, getting plenty of sleep and having a strong emotional support system in your life — are “just what the doctor ordered” to powerfully prevent, treat, and, often, even reverse chronic disease and select autoimmune conditions.
