A lifestyle approach to medicine focuses on behaviors and habits within a patient's control. Elements of one's lifestyle, including diet, physical exercise, sleep hygiene, substance use, stress management, and relationships, are major factors in preventing chronic diseases. Common diseases and conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cancers can be prevented by making long-term, sustainable changes to one's lifestyle. Research has shown that these diseases can also be reversed with lifestyle modifications—enabling patients to stop or reduce medication and leading to overall savings in healthcare costs.
