There are six lifestyle areas or pillars that we believe have a major impact on your health. Have you heard the sayings such as “You are what you eat” or “ or “Prevention is better than cure”.   

We believe that by eating a more whole based plant diet with other healthy lifestyle options, and having regular check ups with your GP as a preventative measure will achieve better health outcomes. 

Now, you do not have to change your entire life overnight to get healthier, but it is easy to make a couple of small changes that may help you get healthier.    Once you make one change, this success may motivate you to make further positive changes to your lifestyle.  

So, are you as healthy as you can be? Would you like some help to make some lifestyle changes?

  • Are you unhappy with your weight and lack energy?
  • Do you have high cholesterol or blood pressure? 
  • Do you suffer from stress and anxiety stress?
  • Do you have “at risk” family history that concerns you? 
  • Do you have a chronic medical condition and would like a second opinion? 

    Many chronic medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory conditions, musculoskeletal conditions, diabetes and mental health conditions share common risk factors that are largely preventable and treatable.  

    A blood test is a good preventative medical strategy towards good health.

    What is lifestyle medicine?


    Lifestyle Medicine is transforming the way we manage, treat and prevent chronic conditions by addressing behavioural, social and environmental drivers; the modifiable aspects of the whole person (physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual), health behaviours, environment, and other circumstances. This is underpinned by an enhancement of self-empowerment and self-efficacy to manage and improve our own health.

    Lifestyle Medicine is also often described in terms of its ‘6 Pillars’: diet/nutrition, physical activity, smoking cessation/alcohol harm reduction, sleep, stress, and of course social connection. 

    In practical terms, Lifestyle Medicine bridges the gap between health promotion and clinical practice. It involves clinicians, public health professionals, healthcare executives, researchers, scientists and educators working together to prevent, manage and treat conditions that result from:

    • Poor diet or nutrition
    • Physical inactivity
    • Smoking
    • Alcohol overconsumption
    • Chronic stress and anxiety
    • Poor or inadequate sleep
    • Lack of connection to family, friends, community
    • Social isolation
    • Loss of culture and identity
    • Health inequity
    • Social injustice
    • And many more influences of society and environment
