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.
