Lifestyle Medicine

Evidence-based and backed by science

“Lifestyle Medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention - including a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection - as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat and often reverse chronic disease.”
The Importance of Healthy Living and Defining Lifestyle Medicine
Jeffrey I. Mechanick, Robert F. Kushner

Lifestyle Medicine addresses all aspects of health status through a holistic approach. Imbalances in diet are central to the genesis of the majority of chronic diseases. The Tomato Foundation’s way forward is to support this health professional community build on their growing success in treating the cause, rather than just the symptoms of chronic, diet-related diseases.
