STARK HEALTH LIFESTYLE MEDICINE
STARK - Direct to the point, health with singular focus.
Lifestyle Medicine is evidence based science focused on prevention, management and reversal of chronic degenerative diseases; such as Obesity,
Diabetes, Irritable Bowel, Heart disease, Auto Immune disease, Osteo and
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Alzheimer's disease and some Cancers among others. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises Lifestyle Medicine as the answer to "non-communicable disease" and looks to the Lifestyle Medicine Global Alliance (LMGA) for medical leadership and a world wide strategy.
Lifestyle Medicine is not new, hospital tested it is paid for by insurance and national health in the US and Europe. Lifestyle as medicine is yielding 2-3 times better clinical results saving six dollars for every one invested. They achieve over ninety percent of patients maintaining new lifestyle and health promoting habits at one year.
Medical practice today promotes the articulate diagnosis and treatment of disease as it occurs, remaining "symptom based" with medication and surgical intervention the expected norm. Standard medical care rarely achieves above 35 percent follow through with therapy at one year of standard care.
Lifestyle Medicine as an evidence based science, a logical and complementary choice to the Medical and Chiropractic practices. Radically, we promote positive lifestyle behaviours involving:
a whole foods plant based diet,
mind based stress reduction
You can dramatically affect the course of disease, enhancing healing and in some
cases reversing disease when you learn to treat the cause.
The science is clear:
If you suffer from a chronic Degenerative Disease your lifestyle is involved in creating and reversing it.
A well proven program can be designed to help you out of "The Pleasure Trap" of addiction to food, poor moods and lack of movement in your life - which are proven to harm.
Chronic degenerative diseases are affecting every aspect of how we live as people, societies, countries and planet.
Professor Boyd Swinburn, PhD. at the University of Auckland has called it " The Global Syndemic" of our time. (The Lancet Commission Jan. 2019)
