Conscious Health: Lifestyle Medicine

Conscious Health Lifestyle Medicine Mission:

Conscious Health is a healing environment for the diagnosis, prevention and reversal of chronic diseases using Lifestyle Medicine and integrative modalities for the health of body and mind. We treat preventable and chronic health conditions; showing each patient how to maintain wellness and self-improvement through continuous learning. Conscious Health’s holistic approach uses Lifestyle Medicine as the foundation for the reversal of many chronic diseases, integrating other healing modalities as appropriate during the treatment plans.

Your lifestyle and personal behavior are known to be contributing factors of chronic disease. Lifestyle change has the power to prevent and even reverse disease. Lifestyle Medicine physicians can show you how it’s possible to treat, prevent and often reverse many chronic conditions and health problems with individualized lifestyle changes for health and wellness including nutrition, fitness and more.

Diabetes, obesity, heart disease, hypertension, and multiple types of cancer are currently on the rise. Now is the time to acknowledge these conditions that can put your health at a greater risk. If you have an existing condition, working with a Lifestyle Medicine physician can provide healthcare management that works with your current treatment plan. An individualized plan can be created to help reverse or eliminate disease.

According to the World Health Organization, 80% of heart disease, stroke and Type II diabetes and 40% of cancer could be prevented with personal improvements to diet and lifestyle. Creating a healthy lifestyle and adopting positive healthy behaviors can actually increase your longevity.

Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence-based medical specialty that can assist you to make the right choices to help improve your health, reduce the need for medications, and manage or reverse chronic conditions. Using a holistic approach for health and wellness, Lifestyle Medicine looks at the ROOT cause of the disease rather than treat the symptom and focuses on SIX key factors: nutrition, fitness, stress management, adequate sleep, avoiding substance abuse, and healthy relationships. The combination of these six factors is key to creating the foundation and maintaining a positive, healthier lifestyle.

Some of the diseases that lifestyle medicine can influence include:

  • Pre-Diabetes
  • Type II Diabetes
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Heart Disease
  • Obesity
  • High Blood Pressure
