Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle Medicine

This approach recognizes that these chronic diseases are largely preventable through healthy lifestyle choices, such as physical activity, healthy eating, stress management, and avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption.

Lifestyle medicine practitioners often work with patients to identify and modify the underlying lifestyle factors that contribute to the development of chronic diseases. They may also provide counseling, education, and support to help patients make healthy lifestyle changes, and may collaborate with other healthcare professionals as needed to provide comprehensive care. The goal of lifestyle medicine is to help patients live longer, healthier lives and reduce their risk of chronic disease.

This is one of the pillars of our treatment plan at RescueMD. We have practitioners certified in lifestyle medicine and we focus on treating the patient as a whole and not just based on their individual symptoms.
