What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach to preventing, treating and even reversing diseases by replacing unhealthy behaviors with positive ones — such as eating healthfully, being physically active, managing stress, avoiding risky substance abuse, adequate sleep and having a strong support system.

 

Lifestyle Medicine's Unique Value Proposition

  • Allows the body to protect and heal itself by promoting healthful lifestyle choices

  • Educates, guides and supports positive behavior changes

  • Places a focus on evidence-based optimal nutrition, stress management, sleep and physical activity

  • Encourages active patient participation

  • Treats the underlying, lifestyle-related causes of disease

  • Uses medications as a supplement to therapeutic lifestyle changes

  • Considers the patient’s home and community environment
