Lifestyle Modification Program
Lifestyle Medicine is the use of a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for treatment and reversal of chronic disease.
Our lifestyle modification program includes a comprehensive wellness intake with our American College of Lifestyle Medicine trained physician. Bi-monthly group medical appointments will focus on the 6 pillars of wellness: nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress, substance abuse, and interpersonal relationships. Cohorts will be tailored around specific concerns including post weight-loss surgery, post cardiac intervention, and obesity.
The group shared medical appointment occurs in 12 sessions over six months, with additional one-on-one health and wellness coaching support between classes. Sessions are available in-person and via HIPAA-compliant Zoom video conferencing.
