Conventional medicine is often considered disease-centered, as its main focus is on diagnosing disease and managing symptoms usually with medications. Whereas lifestyle and functional medicine take a different approach.
Lifestyle Medicine, Integrative Medicine or Functional Medicine all use a holistic approach to prevent and treat chronic disease, with a focus on nutrition. Lead a healthier life from the inside out.
Lifestyle medicine is defined by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine as the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, alcohol and tobacco cessation, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse chronic disease.
What is the difference between Functional Medicine, Integrative Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine?
Surprisingly enough, there’s little to no difference between the three and all three terms center around the well-being of a whole person, rather than an organ system or a singular component in their life.
Applying the six pillars of lifestyle medicine (a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connections) also provides effective prevention and occasional reversal/remission of many chronic diseases.
A Functional Medicine assessment puts a lot of focus on the “why”. Practitioners emphasize various types of conventional and functional lab work, genetic testing, nutritional supplementation, and other lifestyle-oriented practices.
