WHAT IS LIFESTYLE MEDICINE?
A Different Approach
Lifestyle Medicine involves the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substance use, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse the lifestyle-related, chronic disease that's all too prevalent. --American College of Lifestyle Medicine
“Nothing in all of medicine can do what lifestyle can do to add years to life and life to years. It is quite simply the best medicine we’ve got.”
-Dr. David Katz, MD, Founding Director of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center
