‘Lifestyle medicine is the application of medical, behavioural, motivational and environmental principles to the management of lifestyle related health problems in a clinical setting. Teaching self-care and self-management are important elements of lifestyle medicine.’
The “Physician Competencies for Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine” Article was published in the journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2010.
