  • The 6 pillars of Lifestyle Medicine
  • Dr Charlotte Salter

    Lifestyle medicine is applying evidence-based, whole-person, prescriptive lifestyle change to treat and, often reverse non-communicable diseases. The 6 pillars can be used as a structure to ensure a holistic approach. Applying the six pillars of lifestyle medicine—a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connections can help patients implement positive behaviour change.
