Better health with natural & lifestyle medicine
You can enhance your health, reverse disease and prevent illness with nutrition and lifestyle medicine . In fact, one study predicted that a healthy lifestyle (not smoking, regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining a healthy weight) would prevent 93% of diabetes, 81% of heart attacks, 50% of strokes, and 36% of all cancers . And these same lifestyle changes can extend our health-span and improve wellness .
Personalised nutrition and lifestyle medicine is emerging as an important way to improve health and wellbeing . Our individual state of health is dependent on the dynamic function of our bodies systems and their response to our internal and external environment . Improving our physiological function and our environment with lifestyle changes may be superior to drug treatments for optimising health [6,7].
Advances in science are informing practical, personalised, and preventative health care that optimises wellness with nutrition and lifestyle-based approaches [8,9]. Nutritional medicine, food supplements, herbs, and other natural products are also of growing interest as evidence-based ways to improve health and wellbeing .
