Lifestyle is discussed as the gold standard of health care…but behavior change is not easy. And very few clinicians have actionable tools that equip patients to make healthy habits stick long term.

Meanwhile, patients live in a world of well-being overload and are constantly bombarded with the “best” this and the “most optimal” that. The unfortunate result is that patients are left confused, falling off the bandwagon, or just… stuck.

Learn a step-by-step framework and master this evidence-based, whole person approach to treat - and often reverse – up to 80% of chronic disease. Led by nationally recognized wellbeing experts, Chris Mohr, PhD, RD and Kara Mohr, PhD, this course explores the relationship between lifestyle, behavioral and environmental drivers alongside major modern chronic diseases. You’ll discover:

  • Simple, yet powerful techniques that easily fit into your treatment session for patients of any age
  • Sustainable change through mindset, nutrition, and fitness strategies
  • Implement the powerful concept of ‘habit stacking’ for long lasting behavior change
  • Treat and even reverse disease with effective lifestyle medicine techniques
  • Solutions for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, mental health and more!

Transform your understanding of what mindset, vitality and healthy living can do to enhance your patient outcomes! With nearly immediate results and NO negative side effects, it’s never too late to start! What are you waiting for? Purchase today to integrate lifestyle medicine into your practice and make healthy a habit.
