For the uninitiated, Lifestyle Medicine is much more than health behaviour. ‘Lifestyle’ includes our society, environment, socioeconomic and other factors, and requires a multiple systems approach to the chronic and lifestyle-related disease problem.
Lifestyle Medicine addresses the cause and treats the whole person, in particular by enhancing self-empowerment and self-efficacy to manage and improve our own health, and by providing the knowledge, skills and resources to do so.
Importantly, Lifestyle Medicine encapsulates the values you probably hold as strongly as we do; improving health and wellbeing, health equity, social justice, environmental sustainability, corporate social responsibility and more. You can read more about Lifestyle Medicine here.
