This holistic guide provides an integrative toolbox on how healthcare and fitness professionals can promote lifestyle medicine with their clients. Its clinical and evidence-informed approach focuses on the six primary lifestyle medicine factors: nutrition, exercise, sleep hygiene, stress management, risky substance use, and social connectedness. Each factor is enriched with a variety of strategies and advice including anti-inflammatory recipes, self-guided visualisation, tips on how to break bad habits, sustainable fitness, and mind-body exercises.

Based on the author's 30 years of experience as a trained physical therapist treating musculoskeletal conditions, this book's nonpharmacological and nonsurgical focus allows clients to feel empowered in taking charge of their health through a plethora of resources and techniques. It provides clear, actionable steps and real-world examples in order to nurture sustainable changes that promote long-term health and healing.
