WHAT IS LIFESTYLE MEDICINE?
Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach that incorporates way of lifestyle factors consisting of a whole-food, plant-based diet plan as the focal point right into individual treatment. The goal is to avoid, prevent, as well as reverse diseases that are directly related to lifestyle choices. At A Pattern Medical Clinic, we work hard to provide the best possible healthcare, but we also care about helping each person achieve total wellness on the inside and out.
While conventional Western allopathic medication focuses heavily on disease management, lifestyle medicine inevitably aims to get rid of the source of illness. These two designs of medicine-- allopathic as well as Lifestyle-- preferably work together, and also many doctors that practice Lifestyle Medicine use it as a supplement to their typical training.
As defined by the American College of Lifestyle
Medicine (ACLM), is the use of evidence-based, lifestyle, therapeutic intervention including a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection—as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained in these modalities, to prevent, treat, and often reverse disease.
