LIFESTYLE MEDICINE

involves the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, planted-based diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, alcohol moderation and tobacco cessation, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, address root causes not just symptoms,, and oftentimes reverse the lifestyle-related chronic diseases that are all too prevalent today.
