The Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM) is a multidisciplinary society working towards improved prevention, management, and treatment of chronic, complex and lifestyle-related conditions. ‘Lifestyle-related’ includes environmental, societal, behavioural and other factors. Lifestyle Medicine is a rapidly growing discipline with numerous colleges and societies around the world and many more countries starting up.
ASLM members include GPs and medical specialists, allied health practitioners, public health professionals, educators and researchers. In practical terms, Lifestyle Medicine involves a range of professionals working together to address physical inactivity, poor diet or nutrition, smoking, alcohol overconsumption, chronic stress, anxiety, poor or inadequate sleep, social isolation, loss of culture and identity, exposures to toxins, and other influences of society and environment.
Importantly, Lifestyle Medicine is both a discipline, and a movement for change. We advocate for innovation in clinical practice and prevention, in particular addressing the drivers of chronic disease, health equity and environmental sustainability. Areas of focus include reversing type 2 diabetes, weight loss and management, Shared Medical Appointments, largely plant-based whole food nutrition, reducing sugar consumption, and of course reducing harm from alcohol overuse.
