Why is Lifestyle Medicine Important?
Chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes are some of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Many of these diseases can be prevented or at least delayed by making healthy lifestyle changes. Lifestyle medicine is an important part of primary care because it can help people stay healthy and avoid these diseases.
One of our pillars of health is stress management, and many times this issue gets overlooked in traditional practices. In our office we created a comfortable space for our members to relax and take off their shoes, literally. Our tranquility suite includes a massage chair and other amenities for a truly relaxing and stress-free experience.
How Does Lifestyle Medicine Work?
Lifestyle medicine works by helping people make healthy changes in their lives. This can include eating whole plant-based foods, getting more exercise, sleeping better, engaging in positive social activities, managing stress, and quitting smoking or drinking too much alcohol. These changes can help improve health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
To help guide and provide you with a complete lifestyle package, we offer our members sessions with our mental health counselor and a personal training exercise plan curated by one of our coaches.
