Lifestyle – the manner in which people live – is fundamental to health, wellness, and prevention of disease. It follows that attention to lifestyle is critically important to effective and successful health care. But here’s the challenge: health care professionals receive very little, if any, formal training about lifestyle counseling and therefore are ill equipped to incorporate lifestyle issues into clinical practice. In response, “Lifestyle Medicine” is evolving as a means to fill this knowledge gap. Lifestyle medicine approaches health and wellness by harnessing the power of lifestyle-related behaviors and influencing the environment we live in. It is a formal approach that promises to enhance and strengthen a re-invigorated health care system that is still outpaced by the epidemic proportions and complexity of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, depression, hypertension, and cancer, among others. Lifestyle Medicine: A Manual for Clinical Practice presents this formal approach in a pragmatic context. This unique and practical manual provides clear and succinct guidance on nearly all aspects of lifestyle medicine. The approach is both explanatory and pragmatic, providing case studies and bulleted translation of academic information into clinical practice recommendations. There is an emphasis on scientific evidence wherever possible as well as opinions by the expert chapter authors who practice lifestyle medicine. There is a “how-to” rationality to the book, consistent with a premise that any and all health care professionals should, and perhaps must, incorporate lifestyle medicine. A valuable checklist is included at the close of the book that summarizes key points and provides a practical tool for routine patient encounters.

Review:

“In 32 chapters the authors review the influence of lifestyle on medical conditions, but more important is how changes in lifestyle may improve these diseases. An interesting approach which has led to formation of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. For clinical practitioners.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 14 (2), December, 2016)

“Each chapter is a standalone monograph with an introduction, very short vignettes of a case history, followed by the psychological aspects, physical impact, some evidence-based management thoughts, resources, and references. ... This book takes a comprehensive approach, covering many of areas that the single-issue monographs on this topic do not. As such this is a valuable overview that has tremendous value to primary care or specialist clinicians, and for supporting medical professionals such as nutritionists, physical therapists, and pharmacists.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2016)
