Lifestyle Medicine 2016
There are several premises that establish the need for this book. First, that management of lifestyle is a necessary component for wellness and health promotion, as well as disease prevention and management. Second, that physicians and allied health professionals lack sufficient education and training in lifestyle medicine to fulfill the imperative in the first point above. Third, that existing publications, including a few detailed books on the topic, focus on theory and evidence but not practical implementation in clinical practice. It is this third point that will be specifically targeted by this book.
How will the book be organized to achieve the third target above? A clinical context will be provided first, which defines the need and nature of lifestyle medicine within a paradigm of preventive medicine. Next, the individual components of lifestyle medicine will be presented: nutrition, fitness, sleep, and behavior. Then, specific case studies - spanning wellness, cancer, metabolic disease, cardiovascular-renal-liver disease, etc. -- will be presented with relevant theory, evidence, and practical aspects of lifestyle medicine implementation. Finally, a compendium of practical resources will be provided.Each chapter will be written by a bona fide expert and the format will be highly structured and consistent throughout the book for clarity, brevity, and up-to-date content. The expectation is that concepts can be easily translated into practice by the reader.
To my knowledge, although there are a few textbooks on lifestyle medicine, which are rather comprehensive, encyclopedic, and exhaustive, none are designed specifically for practical implementation. This book therefore extends work in this burgeoning field.
