Discover lifestyle medicine
Lifestyle is the cornerstone of health
Lifestyle medicine is promotion of evidence-based health habits, such as eating a whole food, plant-based diet, getting regular physical activity, getting adequate sleep, stress management and avoidance of intoxicating substances. Lifestyle medicine prevents and reverses chronic conditions like diabetes.
Lifestyle Medicine Education
Confidently engage in conversations on lifestyle medicines - safe and breakthrough medicines. Overcome concerns such as:
"I didn’t learn about lifestyle medicine in school"
"I can’t get my patients to change"
"I don't have time to discuss lifestyle medicine"
"I don’t trust allied health professionals in my practice"
"I can’t address social determinants of health"
"I don’t have data on my patients’ lifestyles in the EHR"
"My patients can’t access their lifestyle data on mobile"
"I don’t know how to bill for lifestyle medicine"
Wellcoaches and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine bring your team a self-paced Lifestyle Medicine course delivered by experts in the main lifestyle medicines that prevent, delay or ameliorate chronic diseases – physical activity, nutrition, sleep, emotional well-being, and brain health.
Your patients discover their path to well-being
Coaches help people change when change is hard. So will you and your clinical team.
We deliver training in coaching basics and burnout prevention for the whole team in primary care and other clinical practices. We train, certify, mentor, and support lifestyle medicine coaches. Lifestyle medicine coaches apply evidence based protocols for one-on-one and group programs.
The Wellcoaches protocol has ten peer-reviewed papers showing statistically significant improvements across many biometrics and measures for over 21,000 patients. Two primary care based coaching interventions demonstrated a sustained weight loss of 5-7% of body weight at 24 months.
