Lifestyle Medicine

Lorem ipsum ...

Anyone can benefit from adopting a healthier lifestyle. No one wants to be sick. This is often easier said than done. Rather than curing health problems as in other medical specialties, this unit is dedicated preventing chronic diseases and illnesses. Lifestyle Medicine focuses on six main areas: healthy diet, physical activity, stress, sleep, social engagement, and risky substance avoidance. Our medical team of doctors and allied health professionals is specialized in these areas and the related health conditions.

All advice is evidence-based. For example, if you lose just 7% of your body fat through lifestyle changes, you can greatly reduce your risk for diabetes 1 . One program reduces diabetes incidences by 58%. Small changes really do make big differences.

We welcome anyone who wants to make a lifestyle change. That change is the best thing you can do for your health today.

Medical Facts


1How to make exercise a habit?
Some practical tips on how to start exercising: first talk with your doctor if you haven’t been active before, if you have medical conditions, are pregnant, or are at an older age. Start with small and easy exercises and build gradually up. Set some realistic goals, which are not too difficult to reach but that keep you motivated. Find exercises that are fun and you enjoy. Try to exercise with friends, so that you can motivate each other and enjoy the companionship too.
2Is coffee bad for you?
Research shows that drinking as much as 6 cups a day does not represent a health risk, in terms of cardiovascular diseases or risk of cancer.
3How can I say No when it stresses me out?
Saying “No” can be very beneficial for a person's self-esteem, healthy relationship, and overall mental health. Learning to say it in ways that are acceptable and considerate of others is a great way to keep healthy boundaries and is a sign of self-care.
4Can smoking cause blindness?
Studies show that smoking can increase the risk of AMD (age-related macular degeneration) which is a condition where the central part of the eye becomes blurred.
5What can I do if my loved one is an alcoholic?
There are many ways to approach someone who is an alcoholic. You can try and talk with them, understand their situation and emotions, make them see the risks of drinking, offer to help, inform them about counselling groups, and give them resources and tools for them to engage. People should not neglect themselves and always keep in mind to take care and seek support if needed.
6Is sleep deprivation genetic?
Differences in sleep patterns might be hereditary. Studies indicate that people who need less sleep than the average, have certain mutations in their genes. Studying sleep can help to better understand the components of good sleep, which can impact the overall quality of life.
