Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach to preventing, treating and even reversing diseases — by replacing unhealthy behaviors with positive ones.
There are 6 key ways you can take control over your health: being mindful of your food choices, managing stress, being physically active, avoiding risky substance abuse (eliminating tobacco use and moderating alcohol consumption), getting plenty of sleep and having a strong emotional support system in your life.
How we use Lifestyle Medicine to improve your health

PLAN We’ll create customized plan for you to work with an MD trained in these 6 pillars.
