According to the Global Lifestyle Medicine Alliance 2014, Lifestyle medicine is:
“A branch of evidence based medicine in which comprehensive lifestyle changes including nutrition, physical activity, stress management, social support and environmental exposures are used to prevent, treat and reverse the progression of chronic diseases by addressing their underlying causes.”
I work as a regional director for the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine and through this deliver talks about the context and current challenges of modern day medicine, what lifestyle medicine is (and isn’t!) and where it fits in with conventional medicine. We look at the root causes of disease and the challenges of behaviour change and how a lifestyle medicine approach can make a real difference.
