- February 24, 2022
Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence-based approach to prevent, improve, and even reverse chronic disease.
Dr Kelly-Anne Garnier, our Lifestyle Medicine GP, uses the pillars of lifestyle medicine to explore all aspects of your unique lifestyle to help you improve your mental and physical wellbeing.
What are the pillars of Lifestyle Medicine?
- Diet and nutrition
- Exercise and activity
- Stress management
- Sleep quantity and quality
- Smoking and alcohol use
- Social relationships and sense of purpose
A lifestyle medicine approach is important at all ages; however, it becomes vital as we grow older. You may notice as we age people will comment on unexplained aches and pains, low energy and libido, brain fog and irritability. Symptoms we often attribute to “getting older” and once the conversation ends, we leave it there. But we shouldn’t.
By using a Lifestyle Medicine approach there is almost always something we do to improve our wellbeing. The choice really is yours to make. It need not be daunting – even little steps can go a long way….
Dr Garnier will help you understand how lifestyle choices affect our health and wellbeing, and will address each lifestyle pillar in a systematic way to optimise your health and prevent the aging spiral we have come to accept as just getting older.
