Clinical Diagnosis & Management

"An estimated 70% of all visits to a doctor are thought

to have a predominantly lifestyle-based cause"

lifestyle_medicine_lit_review_2009_06_30 (uconn.edu)

 LIFESTYLE health helps to manage the growing number of cases presenting to doctors with a lifestyle-based cause of disease. Lifestyle medicine introduces interventions within conventional medicine to lower the risks of lifestyle chronic diseases or if such conditions are already present to serve as a management plan. 

PATIENTS WITH CLINICAL PRESENTATIONS OF:

- High Cholesterol

- Type 2 Diabetes

- Obesity

- High Blood Pressure

- Hypertension

- Cardiovascular Disease

These Chronic Diseases and more are predominantly LIFESTYLE  diseases which

can be managed with Lifestyle-related treatments.

PATIENTS REQUIRING FURTHER EXAMINATION AND LABORATORY BLOOD TESTS

TO AID IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF TOTAL TOXIC LOAD 

A COMPREHENSIVE WRITTEN REPORT IS SENT TO THE REFERRING PHYSICIAN OUTLINING:

- OUR ASSESSMENT FINDINGS

- SUGGESTIONS FOR CARE

- MANAGEMENT PLAN

Comprehensive Assessment for clients
with Complex Chronic Conditions 

Comprehensive Assessment

Physician Referral is recommended. As part of the referral process we will require blood work. Further Laboratory and diagnostic tests may be required after initial appointment. Studies have shown that 30% of patients with environmental sensitivities have no abnormal laboratory biomarkers. We may require further biomarker tests. The initial assessment takes approximately  two hours. One to two shorter follow-up appointments either virtual or in person completes the assessment. We may refer you to medical specialists or to other health care professionals for consultation.

 

A Specialist Precision Health Physician will conduct a complete patient history and full evaluation of stressors to determine total toxic load from exposure sources of diet, water, implants, mould and other

potentially toxic chemical or environmental exposures.

Patient Management

- Referrals to another specialist may be required to address medical issues that may have been overlooked.

- Integrative medicine to enhance the natural detoxification to reduce body burden 

- Coaching patients to improve personal lifestyle choices regarding nutrition/diet, physical activity, stress management, sleep management, smoking cessation and more.

  1.  Focus Areas:

    • Obesity: Lifestyle choices significantly impact weight management, and obesity-related conditions are often lifestyle-driven.

    • Type 2 Diabetes: Lifestyle modifications play a crucial role in preventing and managing this condition.

    • Cardiovascular Health: Diet, exercise, and stress management contribute to heart health.

  2. Trends:​​

  • Lifestyle Medicine is becoming the preferred modality for not only prevention but also treatment of most chronic diseases.

  • It is often prescribed in conjunction with pharmacotherapy for diabetic patients on medication to control the blood glucose levels prescribed.

  • Diet and exercise intervention assists in long term patient management.

Comprehensive Written Report

Medical form with stethoscope_edited_edi

We send a comprehensive written report, outlining our assessment, findings and recommendation for care to the referring physician or family doctor who is responsible for the ongoing health care needs.

We need to know who your primary care provider is before we make a clinic appointment for you. If you do not have a primary care provider, please make an appointment with a family doctor of your choice to establish ongoing care and obtain a referral.  Lifestyle Health does not provide ongoing care to clients.
