Shelby County Lifestyle Medicine
Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence-based approach to preventing, treating,
and even reversing diseases by creating sustainable healthy habits that
work for you. Eating healthier, being physically active, improving sleep
and reducing stress are the foundational principles for a healthy lifestyle.
The MHP Lifestyle Medicine Clinic is devoted to providing comprehensive
education within four pillars of a healthier life: nutrition, exercise,
stress management, and sleep. Our Lifestyle Medicine care team is made
up of a board-certified lifestyle medicine physician, a certified wellness
coach, and a certified medical assistant. We will develop a personalized
plan and guide you through your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
The mission of our Lifestyle Medicine program is to extend your healthspan
by creating a solid foundation using the four pillars below. We will help
you answer these questions and work with you to develop a personalized plan.
- Nutrition - What should you eat? How much should you eat? How should you
prepare it? When should you eat or not eat?
- Exercises - How hard do you have to exercise to burn fat or to just improve
health? When is the best time to exercise? How long do you need to exercise?
What exercises are best for you personally?
- Sleep - How can you sleep better? How much sleep do you need? Do those
gadgets work? Do naps help?
- Stress Management - Does stress management matter to your heart or brain?
How do you escape stress? What can you do to manage your stress? How do
you fit this into a busy schedule?
