is What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine is a method of healthcare that focuses upon the needs of the individual and recognises that there are many physical and mental health conditions that can be improved and alleviated by changing to healthier patterns of lifestyle. 

There is an increasing recognition of how lifestyle management and simple changes to a person's daily routine can alter the course of chronic disease and in some cases, prevent the need for medication.

Diet is an important factor within the practice of lifestyle medicine but there are other aspects of someone's life that may also  benefit from change, such as:

  • Exercise and movement

  • Sleep pattern

  • Relationships and participation in community

  • Work and purposeful living

  • Environment and access to natural light and nature

  • Patterns of thinking and entrenched behaviours

  • Appropriate methods of stress management

  • Access to social, emotional and spiritual fulfillment.
