"Lifestyle medicine is the evidence-based practice of helping individuals and families adopt and sustain healthy behaviors that affect health and quality of life."
- American College of Lifestyle Medicine
Prevent, Improve, Reverse
Do you know that you can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, even if they run in your family? Studies have shown improvement and reversal of these and other lifestyle related chronic diseases with lifestyle changes (nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction, support, quality sleep). A Lifestyle Medicine consultation will include a thorough assessment of your lifestyle behaviors, along with further evaluation (if needed) and recommendations. Intensive support will be provided to facilitate your success on your wellness journey.
Whole Person Health
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
-World Health Organization Constitution 1948
Do you know that poor quality sleep can affect your ability to lose weight, predispose you to Alzheimer's disease, and increase your risk of depression? Our bodies are complex with intricately connected systems. The heart, brain, gut and hormonal system all communicate, with an imbalance in one frequently affecting the others. Evaluating systems of the body in isolation is no longer a practical approach to health. A Lifestyle Medicine approach optimizes all aspects of the body and mind to achieve health.
