Lifestyle Medicine for South Florida and Beyond

Did you know that more than 80 percent ($4 out of every $5) of all healthcare spending in the United States comes from treating chronic disease and chronic conditions that result directly from our own poor lifestyle choices? Imagine how much money and suffering you could save during your life if you avoided chronic illness and disease.

Many chronic diseases and chronic conditions—hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, obesity, osteoporosis and several types of cancer—are among the most common and preventable health conditions we face.

Lifestyle medicine uses evidence-based, therapeutic approaches to promote an overall healthier life.

Follow a Whole Foods, Plant-Based Diet
There is much evidence that following a whole foods, plant-based diet can have a significant impact on improving health. That plus regular physical activity, healthy sleep, effective stress management, managing blood pressure, avoiding risky substances (tobacco, alcohol, etc.), maintaining healthy relationships and other non-pharmaceutical methods for preventing, treating, even reversing lifestyle-related chronic disease.
