Lifestyle medicine holds the promise for true health reform as it treats the root-cause of chronic illness and disease rather than its symptoms. There is clear evidence that people with chronic conditions who adhere to a healthy lifestyle experience rapid and significant improvements in their health.
Chronic disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the USA. Rates of chronic disease have never been higher, with cost of chronic conditions eating up 86% of all healthcare dollars spent. Chronic disease is so common that more than half of American adults have at least one condition, accounting for 90% of healthcare spending.
