With so many misconceptions about what Lifestyle Medicine is, we would like to give some explanation.
It is not “just nutrition”, nor is it woo woo medicine, whacky or alternative. It is an evidence based science, recognised internationally.
The Lifestyle Medicine Global Alliance, represents the convergence of national Lifestyle Medicine professional associations from around the world from 17 countries including the UK. They define Lifestyle Medicine as:
“The evidence-based medical specialty that uses lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substance use, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse non-communicable disease, sometimes referred to as degenerative chronic disease.”
The vision of the Lifestyle Medicine Global Alliance is a “world without communicable disease”
As nations, clinicians or individuals we simply cannot afford to miss the opportunity to change the course of the non- communicable disease epidemic!

What a great online course! Useful for clinicians in almost any speciality. I particularly liked that there were useful lifestyle strategies that you could take away and not only use yourself but also apply to patients in your clinic.
