What is lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine is a medical specialty that primarily uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions to treat chronic conditions including, but not limited to, cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.

Lifestyle Medicine certified physicians are trained to apply evidence-based, whole-person, prescriptive lifestyle change to
PREVENT, TREAT and, when used intensively, in some cases, even REVERSE chronic disease
How does it work?

The six pillars of Lifestyle Medicine are used, personalizing them to the patient's needs.

These involve a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connections.
