There is a growing body of scientific evidence showing that lifestyle interventions can be as effective as medication but without the risks and unwanted side effects. Lifestyle Medicine is becoming the preferred modality for not only prevention but also the treatment of most chronic diseases including the following:
• Type-2 diabetes
• Coronary Heart Disease
• Insulin Resistance Syndrome
• Various types of cancer
Although Lifestyle Medicine incorporates many public health approaches, it is a clinical discipline. While Lifestyle Medicine does not typically emphasize prescription medications, they frequently require the reduction of prescribed medications. In some cases, medication is appropriate.
