About this title

Synopsis:

"Up to 70% of all visits to a doctor are now thought to have a predominantly lifestyle-based cause."

5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
". It has a refreshingly broad scope, as it addresses many issues rather than the usual, single-issue book on lifestyles....This is an outstanding book, easy to read, with a very broad scope, and full of useful approaches to discuss lifestyle problems with patients. This is a tremendous addition to every clinician's armamentarium."--Doody's Review Service

"This comprehensive yet highly readable text summarizes the theoretical framework behind lifestyle medicine and provides practical guidance for GPs and allied health professionals to implement preventative 'three A' (Assess, Advise, Arrange) interventions in brief clinical consultations....this excellent resource offers strategies that may provide health care teams with practical approaches that are, for the most part, realistic to implement in primary care settings."--American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle Medicine is the essential book for contemporary times. It concentrates largely on the contribution that can be made directly by the clinician at the personal level.

But what is "lifestyle medicine?" Lifestyle medicine calls for a modified approach to health management to help clinicians effectively prevent, treat, and manage a range of modern health problems with predominantly lifestyle-based etiologies.

The rise in obesity worldwide has focused attention on lifestyle as a prominent cause of disease. However, obesity is just one manifestation, albeit an obvious one, of lifestyle-related problems. A wide range of others have resulted from the environment and behaviors associated with our modern way of living. Inactivity, poor and over-nutrition, smoking, drug and alcohol abuse, inappropriate medication, stress, unsafe sexual behavior, inadequate sleep, risk-taking, and environmental exposure (i.e. sun, chemicals, the built environment) are significant modern causes of disease.

New and adaptive approaches to health management are needed to deal with these complex problems. Lifestyle Medicine provides these tools to enable clinicians to successfully manage patients in our current environment.
