Better health with natural & lifestyle medicine

You can enhance your health, reverse disease and prevent illness with nutrition and lifestyle medicine [1]. In fact, one study found that a healthy lifestyle (not smoking, regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining a healthy weight) prevented 93% of diabetes, 81% of heart attacks, 50% of strokes, and 36% of all cancers [2]. And these same lifestyle changes can extend our health-span and improve wellness [3].

Personalised nutrition and lifestyle medicine are emerging as important ways to improve health and wellbeing [4]. Our individual state of health is dependent on the dynamic function of our bodies systems and their response to our internal and external environment [5]. Improving our physiological function 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 medicine [8,9]. Food supplements, herbs, and other natural products are also of growing interest as evidence-based ways to improve health and wellbeing [10].
