Background

By 2020, the World Health Organization predicts that two-thirds of all disease worldwide will be the result of lifestyle choices. In the United States, the primary causes of premature adult deaths are related to unhealthy behaviours, such as tobacco use, poor diet and lack of physical activity. These findings are widely accepted, and well-established chronic disease practice guidelines uniformly call for behaviour change as the first line of prevention and management. However, some physicians often do not follow these recommendations.

Learn lifestyle habits and tools that will empower you to improve your health and greatly reduce your risk of diease. Lifestyle medicine has been defined as " the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, physical activity, sleep, stress management, tobacco cessation and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse lifestyle-related, chronic disease that’s all too prevalent.”
