Title : Lifestyle medicine new opportunity and challenge for traditional medicine


Lifestyle medicine is a hot and trending area in medicine today. Lifestyle Medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention, including a food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection. It focuses on educating and motivating patients to improve the quality of their lives by changing personal habits and behaviors.  More than 80% of chronic conditions could be avoided through the adoption of healthy lifestyle recommendations. Traditional medicine refers to health practices, approaches, knowledge and beliefs incorporating plant, animal and mineral based medicines, spiritual therapies, manual techniques and exercises, applied singularly or in combination to treat, diagnose and prevent illnesses or maintain well-being. In this presentation, we will cover the following points:
