The rising incidence of chronic diseases and the associated healthcare costs are unsustainable. The good news is most common chronic conditions — hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and some cancers — are rooted in poor lifestyle choices and thus potentially preventable or reversible.
Lifestyle Medicine involves the use of lifestyle changes, such as a more plant-based diet, physical activity, stress management, restorative sleep, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection, as a primary therapeutic modality for the treatment and reversal of chronic disease.
