Lifestyle Medicine Q & A

What is lifestyle medicine?

Lifestyle medicine is an area of practice centered on making lifestyle improvements that lower your risk of chronic disease and improve disease management. There are several components of lifestyle medicine, each offering many benefits.

Dietary improvements

A big part of lifestyle medicine involves moving toward a whole-food, plant-based diet. By improving the quality of the food you eat and choosing foods rich in nutrients and free from heavy processing your body can thrive.

Physical activity

It doesn’t take an extreme workout plan or hours of time at the gym each week to reap the benefits of an active lifestyle. Your specialist can work with you to find ways to incorporate more physical activity into your daily life.

Restorative sleep

Everyone knows they need more and better quality sleep, but achieving that goal can be a challenge. Your doctor provides real-world advice that helps you boost the quantity and quality of your rest.

Stress management

Stress is a normal part of life, but high levels of unmanaged stress can take a toll on your overall health and wellness. Your team offers techniques to keep stress at healthy levels and can show you how to integrate stress management into your daily routines.

Positive social connections

People need human connections to live a rich and fulfilling life, yet many place this need at the bottom of their priority list. Your health team discusses ways to create new connections and strengthen existing ones to keep you happy and healthy.

Avoiding risky behaviors

Once you experience the power of lifestyle medicine you’ll want to do everything you can to preserve those results. Avoiding risky behaviors is an important yet often overlooked need. Educating you on ways to reduce risk in your everyday life is part of the process at Premier Medical Care.

Is it hard to transition to a lifestyle medicine approach?

Making changes is always a bit daunting, but moving toward lifestyle medicine is easier than you might think. Your health care team works with you to understand your daily lifestyle and identify ways to make meaningful improvements.

Why is lifestyle medicine not central to all medical practice?

The power of lifestyle medicine to transform lives is undeniable, but this approach hasn’t always been central in modern medicine. Far too many health care providers focus on treating symptoms rather than taking a whole-body, natural approach to health and wellness.

Lifestyle medicine is becoming more common as people search for ways to change the trend toward overweight, obesity, and chronic disease. Learn more during a personalized consultation, which you can book online or by phone today.
