lifestyle medicine pillars


Lifestyle Medicine is the use of a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for treatment and reversal of chronic disease.

Our lifestyle is the root cause of many of our health problems. Improving our everyday habits are central to the ‘whole person’ approach to wellness.


As with all branches of medicine, it has firm roots in science based on decades of strong clinical data. Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach. It uses the best available science to produce positive clinical outcomes. It can reduce or eliminate medications and produces incredible results for improved health.

Lifestyle medicine incorporates every aspect of your physical and emotional wellbeing. After all, good health is much more meaningful if you are able to enjoy it.


Lifestyle Medicine is a highly effective way to establish and maintain healthy behaviours that improve your quality of life and longevity.
