Description

Lifestyle medicine is a medical specialty that uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions as a primary modality to treat lifestyle related chronic conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Our current healthcare system relies heavily on expensive pharmacologic treatment which can have unwanted side effects. By applying the six pillars of lifestyle medicine we can provide effective prevention and management for these conditions while lowering health care costs and avoiding unwanted side effects. These interventions also encourage patients to become an active participant in their care rather than a passive recipient.
