"Scientific evidence overwhelmingly supports the efficacy of Lifestyle Medicine." Dr. Beth Frates, MD put it this way:
"In lifestyle medicine, I work to empower people to adopt healthy habits so that they can enjoy a healthy body, a peaceful mind and a joyful heart."
The rise in chronic disease trends and related healthcare spending in the United State and in many other countries around the world is unsustainable. Type 2 diabetes alone is a looming global pandemic with incalculable consequences.
This being said, there is GOOD NEWS.
The good news is that 80% or more of all healthcare spending in the U.S. is tied to the treatment of conditions rooted in poor lifestyle choices. Chronic diseases and conditions—such as hypertension, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, multiple types of cancer—are among the most common, costly and preventable of all health conditions."Lifestyle Medicine has the power to not only prevent, treat and in many cases reverse disease, but also provide a solution for real health care reform."
