What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine is an evidenced-based approach to treating, preventing, and curing chronic diseases through changing one’s lifestyle.

Let’s face it. Most of us don’t like being told what to do. Especially when we already know what we should be doing. That’s why at Stargate we don’t take a “You should” approach but rather a “You can” approach when it comes to compassionately encouraging our clients to make changes to their lifestyle. Instead of hammering home a negative message, we want to empower our patients to live their best and longest life possible by being their physical and mental health teammate, not their authority figure.

Reduce Your Risk of Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetes, Hypertension, and Stroke with Physical Activity

Sometimes the first step can be the hardest step. At Stargate we work with you to overcome the mental limitations you may have inadvertently imposed on yourself over the years, so you can get on track to living a healthier and longer life. According to the World Health Organization physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for mortality across the globe, and numerous studies have shown regular physical activity can reduce your chances of suffering from coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, or stroke.

Battle Obesity with Healthy Eating

Obesity causes countless health problems. From overtaxing your heart to overstraining joints, numerous complications can arise from being overweight or obese. At Stargate we’ll help you address the real issue behind your excess weight in a compassionate way, which is the first step in transforming your life. We’ll also teach you the nutritional information you need to ensure the best weight loss results. Combined with our physical therapy and exercise knowledge, we can help you rapidly lose weight in a safe and manageable way so you can start enjoying life again.
