What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle medicine is a branch of medicine which has as goal to maintain optimal health and to prevent, treat and reverse chronic illness across all life stages. The health interventions used in lifestyle medicine include evidence based behavioural strategies, while considering equity and sustainability, to enhance self-management skills for optimizing nutrition, sleep hygiene, stress management, social connection, sexual health and fertility, physical activity and minimizing substance use and environmental exposures *

Pillars of Lifestyle Medicine

After having worked in different medical settings (including operation theater, intensive care unit, rehabilitation clinic and psychiatric hospital)  I have decided to redirect my career path and concentrate on the roots of chronic disease: our everyday choices. In other words, our lifestyle. 

The research on this topic is impressive: we now know for a fact that up to 80% of chronic diseases are caused by our lifestyle. It means that by making changes in the way we live we can prevent, treat and in some cases even reverse many chronic diseases. 

I have experienced first hand the impact of a healthy lifestyle and my mission is to spread this knowledge to the public as well as accompanying you directly in your journey to a healthier, happier life.


I had the pleasure of talking about lifestyle medicine in the podcast with Laura:
