"Lifestyle Medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic interventions-including a whole food, plant predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection-as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat and often reverse chronic disease." - American College of Lifestyle Medicine

LIFESTYLE MEDICINE

Empowered Mind and Body LLC focuses on prevention of disease and illness, but also works to help discover the root cause of what's going on in your body. The care we provide is based on the principles of Lifestyle Medicine.

 

Lifestyle Medicine is important because 80% or more of all health care spending in the US is tied to treating chronic conditions, most often rooted in unhealthy lifestyle choices. It's not new, but it's also not discussed nearly as often as it should be, often because providers lack time and appropriate resources in our current healthcare system.
