What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine involves the use of evidence-based lifestyle changes. This includes healthy eating, physical activity, good sleep, reducing stress, reducing risk, and positive social connection.

In lifestyle medicine, changes to how you live is the first and most important step. It can be easy for both experts and patients to say – but hard to do. It’s easier if and more effective if you partner with a doctor who is specially trained and certified to do this.

Emdoc Health Lifestyle medicine is not primary care.

There is no nutribabble, no fad diets, no misleading promises of miracle short-cuts. Lifestyle medicine is actually the foundation of conventional medicine. All current clinical practice guidelines for the most common lifestyle-related chronic diseases already support lifestyle medicine as the first line of treatment – before medications. Pressures in modern healthcare systems mean this part gets overlooked.
