What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence-based approach to preventing, treating, and even reversing diseases, by replacing unhealthy behaviors with positive ones. Our Lifestyles Medicine team consists of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, registered dietitians, health educators, and personal trainers.


The Lifestyle Medicine Approach is Centered Around Six Core Pillars

Our Lifestyle Medicine program is a contemporary, whole-body method for improving your life and well-being through six core pillars of healthy living. See how these pillars play an important role in our unique and dynamic approach to creating your new path to lifelong wellness.


Current research shows that a diet rich with fiber and nutrient-dense whole, plant-based foods contribute to a healthier body and mind. Our skilled registered dietitians will help you step-by-step on your healthy lifestyle journey so you can adapt, enjoy and explore new, healthier foods.
