Lifestyle Medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for treatment and reversal of chronic disease.
Food is Medicine. Choose predominantly whole, plant-based foods that are rich in fiber and nutrient dense. Vegetables, fruit, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts and seeds
Regular and consistent physical activity that can be maintained on a daily basis throughout life - walking, gardening, push ups and lunges - is an essential piece of the optimal health equation.
Exercise and mental health
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.
