Lifestyle Medicine using science to better your health and well being for the future.
The Chief Medical Officer’s report (2020) states that the average person in the UK can expect to spend 15 years suffering from a chronic illness such as diabetes, heart disease, dementia, chronic lung disease or cancer.
The World Health Organisation states that over 80% of these chronic illnesses and 40% of cancers would be prevented by making different lifestyle choices. This is incredibly empowering as it means we can make small changes regularly that improve our chances of healthy longevity! These same changes not only improve health in the long-term, they also help people to feel and look better now.
Qualified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians are trained to help motivate individuals to make the best evidence-based lifestyle choices, and to help them to prioritise lifestyle changes that have a solid scientific rationale to prevent and even reverse chronic illness.
