Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle medicine is a comprehensive way to prevent, treat, and cure.

The American College of Lifestyle Medicine defines Lifestyle Medicine as the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention, including a whole-food, plan-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection, as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease.

Food manufacturers today throw sugar into everything, from chili to coleslaw, and the total amount of sugar we eat […]

Longevity Medicine: How We Age

Certainly it’s a science that was virtually nonexistent when I was in medical school, back when preventive medicine itself got little more than lip service. With the recent arrival of anti-aging medicine/longevity medicine, MDs started paying more […]

Longevity Medicine: The Earlier You Start, The Longer You’ll Live

Leading an orchestra in Anton Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony is a real workout for any conductor.  Tall and straight-backed, the very elegant Swedish Maestro Herbert Blomstedt stepped to the podium and led the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for the 66-minute piece. From memory, no score in front of him. He would repeat this performance for two more […]
