Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine is a whole-person, patient-centered approach to medical practice. It takes into account the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of the person, as well as the cultural and structural systems within which the person lives (an ecological systems approach).
It’s foundation is built on understanding and managing stressors, sleep, nutrition and movement to encourage the body’s own capacity to maintain balance (homeostasis).
It considers evidence-based western medicine, evidence-based complementary medicine and therapies and indigenous knowledges and cosmologies.
It recognises that what happens in a person’s body is a reflection of their interaction with the exposome (lifetime environmental exposures that influence the genome i.e. determine which genes, pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, are expressed).
