was created by Dr. Marc Braman, past President and Executive Director of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. He captures the essence of what healthcare should be like in our society today
– This should be the foundation of healthcare. It is arguably the most sustainable way to maintain our health. Many people would even call lifestyle habits “common sense” factors, because even if the medical recommendations are evidence-based and scientifically sound, these recommended interventions are things our grandmothers most probably taught us when we were kids, like eating ones greens, for example, or keeping clean. It is because of unhealthy lifestyle habits that the population as we know it, develop chronic diseases, suffer from them, and die prematurely. Nutrition is a major player in keeping oneself healthy and the science backs up this concept. Considered the “Father of Medicine” Hippocrates had the right idea when he taught that “Food is Medicine”. He also taught that “Movement is Medicine”. Other aspects of lifestyle including mental and emotional health, living in the present and mindfulness, positivism and connectedness all contribute to a purpose-filled life.
– There is a place for improving our nutrient intake and physical health through natural supplements and therapies. However, these interventions should be used only as an adjunct to eating a predominantly plant-based, whole-food diet, physical activity and other Lifestyle Medicine interventions.
Prescription – We cannot do away with medications immediately. They play a vital role in the care of acute conditions. Long term use of medications, however, can cause accumulation of the drug in the system and in turn increase the risk for developing side effects that could injure our major organs of metabolism and detoxification, including, but not limited to the liver and kidneys.
Surgery – In emergent situations, this can be life-saving. When all else fails, surgery may be used as a last resort to certain diseases or conditions. Cutting out an aggressive, disease-causing tumor, a severely infected or damaged limb or injured organ, or repairing an anatomical problem, all these can be done by using surgical interventions.
