Lifestyle Medicine


Lifestyle Medicine considers the full range of lifestyle factors that address the underlying causes of disease and the everyday choices that affect health. It involves the application of evidence-based medicine to prevent and, in some cases reverse, chronic diseases and facilitates emotional well-being. The approach includes modification of nutritional intake, activity and exercise, stress management, sleep health, social connectedness, and the minimization of toxins like alcohol and tobacco. It is individualized care based on the health concerns and situational factors of each patient.
