What is “Lifestyle Medicine”?

Lifestyle Medicine is the newest field of sub-specialisation in modern medicine. The specialty was named in 2008, and the field of practice has only gained worldwide momentum among GP’s and Allied Health Providers (such as physiotherapists & dieticians) and public health sectors over the past few years. It is now finding it’s place in the curriculum of top medical schools internationally.

Abundant evidence now connects overweight/obesity to a chronic low-grade inflammatory state manifested not only by cells of the immune system but also, notably, by the fat cells (adipocytes).

This process is collectively known as 'Meta-flammation', or “chronic metabolic inflammation” and proves that there is a common cause to our pandemic of modern illnesses like Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-diabetes, heart attacks, 13 types of cancer and dementia, to name a few.

Lifestyle Medicine addresses this common cause.
By improving lifestyle you can reverse Metaflammation.
By applying Lifestyle Medicine, you can reverse and prevent chronic disease.

If you are overweight/obese, have you been screened for Insulin Resistance or Pre-Diabetes?

Carrying extra fatty tissue, especially abdominally, is associated with Metabolic Inflammation that has a strong association with Pre-Diabetes.
You can be screened by your GP or through the Lifestyle Medicine Centre.

Are your household habits and daily routines leading to disharmony, stress and carrying extra kilograms?

Life can be complicated and overwhelming. Analysing our household habits objectively is not easy… we can’t always see where we’re going wrong. We may just plod along and suffer the symptoms of our circumstances.

The ICCM program provides access to professionals including Internationally certified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians, Life Coaches and Occupational Therapists who can assess your circumstances, coach you through changes and help your family lead lives with more vitality and confidence.

Are you stressed or sleeping poorly?

Modern life sees a high prevalence in stress and sleep related symptoms, with evidence to show this leads to Metaflammation. Using Lifestyle Medicine and combining that with general practice and psychology, we aim to provide you with solutions.

Are you often fatigued, emotionally overwhelmed and lacking general life positivity and vitality?

The ICCM program recognises the impact of lifestyle change on overall quality of life, not only weight loss. You will find the program increases both your emotional and social wellbeing.-
