Many people are unfamiliar with the term lifestyle medicine.
What is that?
Lifestyle medicine is using the various things that are immediately available to you in your day to day living: how you eat, how much you sleep, whether or not you’re exercising, whether or not you’re under stress, how supported you are, and using them together to improve overall health outcomes.
Lifestyle medicine is the original medicine, right?
Hippocrates said let food be thy medicine and he was the founder of modern western medicine and he also was a strong advocate for exercise.
So in short, using diet, exercise, stress relief, good sleep, all of these things together along with love, connection and support, you can get to the best possible you with the least amount of medicine and the least amount of doctoring, just by practicing these values every day.
