Lifestyle Medicine: A Game-Changer

n a world that frequently prioritizes quantity over quality in healthcare, "Lifestyle Medicine" emerges as a beacon of hope. This book stands as a compelling call for a much-needed paradigm shift in our approach to health and care. The authors, echoing the sentiments of numerous healthcare professionals, myself included, boldly challenge the established norms. They serve as a poignant reminder that our relentless pursuit of medication-driven solutions has not only left our patients and communities underserved and misinformed but has also taken a significant toll on the well-being of healthcare practitioners. On a personal note, having endured the grueling 80-hour week restrictions during medical school and practicing within under-resourced public hospitals, this book resonated profoundly with me. It serves as a refreshing guide towards redefining what genuine health and care should encompass for all.

Compelling stories

To read that doctors used methods from lifestyle medicine to heal themselves, to read how dire conditions in their lives were before starting to make changes, to read the way their small changes have led to improvements in their health, and to know that even doctors need tools from teachings like lifestyle medicine, even after all that knowledge, to read stories that show their vulnerabilities and some of the most tender moments in their lives led them to make changes, it’s relatable and reading these stories is hella compelling. The book is long. I recommend reading a chapter at a time. This will also allow you to absorb one story, one nugget, one takeaway at a time. I hope this book lands in the hands of a billion readers and listeners for life (style) changing tools and guidance from real people, for real people.

In the end, we are all human ....

This book is must read for anyone who has faced health adversity, and found healing with Lifestyle changes. The deeply Personal stories of all the Physicians really touched and inspired me. I felt their care & compassion for themselves, and their patients through their very vulnerable personal stories. In the end, we are all human. We all need help & support around choices when we are faced with health adversity. This book underlines that fact. Lifestyle changes serves my own health challenges, and it was wonderful to learn more about how my own well-being can be improved. My purpose is a long, healthy life – and Lifestyle changes will lead the pathway to achieving it.

Relatable and Inspirational

I think most people, not just physicians, can relate to the current-day stressors of life that can quickly lead to bad health habits. Modern day society influences us to eat poorly, not prioritize exercise, and develop bad sleep habits. What I love about this book is that I could relate to something in each physician’s story. Each tale is an inspirational story that solidifies the concept that we can and do have control over our health. I hope this book helps educate many who are not aware of how important Lifestyle Medicine is and should be in modern day medicine and in our society as a whole.

Hidden power of “Self “

This book is very inspiring. Officially or unofficially most of us either know or have heard about some aspects of Life Style Medicine. However, when you read about real life experiences of physicians themselves, it adds a different level of confidence. Yes, most physicians are inherently determined and dedicated but the power of “self “ is within all of us. The book is an encouragement to all of us , mostly women. As women tend to take a backseat when it comes to self awareness. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to start this new journey of digging down deep and start healing.

Lifestyle Medicine can enhance and even save lives

I found this book on Lifestyle Medicine to be just what is necessary to help patients take control of and even enhance their own lives. By illustrating what positive improvements happened when medical doctors applied their lifestyle knowledge and ideas to their own medical issues, they have given real life examples to encourage and guide their patients. In addition, this book is well written and full of knowledge about how to take control of your health by improving different aspects of your lifestyle.

Excellent book “a must read”

As a HCP (health care provider) practicing endocrinology medicine I witness the devastating effects of Diabetes, Obesity and all associated co-morbidity lending to a massive shifts in quality of life. Not only does this book beautifully offer complementing holistic options for my patients that I believe would prove beneficial in reducing the demand for expensive pharma-therapeutics. But the physician testimonials were a reassuring helpful source in reminding me to care for the healer within. Great Read, highly recommend.
