Nearly 85 percent of chronic disease health burden and mortality is due to lifestyle risk factors. The good news is that changing our lifestyle behaviors can prevent, manage, and even reverse chronic disease. Our genes need not dictate our health or our fate!
The WVU Lifestyle Medicine Clinic takes an evidence-based, holistic approach to improving health, longevity, and well-being. The clinic works with patients to address chronic conditions and improve energy and well-being by adopting positive lifestyle behaviors. The root causes of chronic disease are targeted through adjustment of six areas of life – nutrition, exercise, stress, substance abuse, sleep, and relationships.
This program works in collaboration with your primary care provider. After an initial evaluation, an action plan is created using evidence-based lifestyle changes that are specific, measurable, feasible, appropriate, and time-related.
Treatment focuses on providing personalized support and guidance to achieve health and wellness goals, while your primary care provider continues to manage prescription medication.
