Lifestyle Medicine is...

... an exciting new approach for change and transformation in health, healthcare, society, and the environment.

Ιt is defined as the integration of modern lifestyle practices into evidence-based medicine while incorporating health promotion, non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention, and chronic disease management.

 

According to ELMO updated definition:

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 evidenced based behavioral 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.

The eight pillars are:

1. Nutrition

2. Physical activity

3. Sleep hygiene

4. Stress management

5. Substance use

6. Sexual health and fertility

7. Social connection

8. Environmental exposure
