Key Modalities of Lifestyle Medicine
Evidence-based lifestyle medicine is an approach to healthcare that emphasizes lifestyle changes in combination with or without pharmaceuticals and surgeries to prevent treat and even reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases and conditions.
According to a "New Unified Theory of Health and Healing" proposed by Dr Dean Ornish, father of modern lifestyle medicine, all lifestyle diseases share many of the same causes, and they progress in similar ways.
As a result of these common pathways in their origins, the various lifestyle diseases can be prevented and/or reversed by similar treatments.
The daily lifestyle habits that you have control over which optimise the biological pathways that determine disease outcome.
Which Chronic Diseases does LM Prevent Treat & Reverse?
Lifestyle medicine is not against use of drugs or surgery - sometimes, they can be lifesaving - but they don't usually have to be the first choice in treating or preventing chronic diseases. One of the overriding themes of recent research is finding that lifestyle changes not only work as well as drugs and surgery, but oftentimes even better. Dean Ornish, MD
