Lifestyle medicine is the field of medicine that focuses on preventative care and treating chronic diseases with lifestyle changes. This includes personalized guidance and recommendations for eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, managing stress, avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption, prioritizing restorative sleep, and nurturing positive social connections.

The goal of lifestyle medicine is to help people live better, longer and avoid developing chronic diseases in the first place. There is growing evidence that lifestyle factors play a major role in the development of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes. By making lifestyle changes, we can often prevent, treat and sometimes reverse these diseases.

Lifestyle medicine focuses on 6 pillars of health:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical Activity
  • Stress Management
  • Restorative Sleep
  • Social Connection
  • Avoidance of Risky Substances

Both physicians are Board Certified in Lifestyle Medicine and stay closely aligned with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
