We’ve all heard that lifestyles make a difference in our health, but what is generally meant by lifestyle?
This definition describes lifestyle as “a set of attitudes, habits, or possessions associated with a particular person or group.”
In addition to these traits, others attribute diet and physical activities like exercise as part of an overall lifestyle.
Dr. David Katz, MD, is well aware of what lifestyles consist of, and, as one of several health experts invited to speak at the Natural Medicine Summit, a free online event that began March 14 and lasts until March 22, he has much good information to convey on the subject.
His presentation, “Lifestyle is the Medicine: What’s the Spoon?” will focus on the true impact that diet and lifestyle could have on an empowered and informed general public, the big distractions that keep us from living the healthy lives we can, and why a healthy lifestyle is the best, most readily available medicine.
Dr. Katz, a nutritionist and the founding director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University, as well as an associate professor of public health practice at the Yale University School of Medicine, has published roughly 200 scientific articles and textbook chapters, and 15 books to date, including multiple editions of leading textbooks in both preventive medicine, and nutrition, as noted on his website.
Also, he has made important contributions in the areas of lifestyle interventions for health promotion, nutrient profiling, behavior modification, holistic care and evidence-based medicine.
In addition to Dr. Katz’s presentation, attendees to the Natural Medicine Summit will discuss, among other subjects and topics, include which supplements you actually need to take for optimal health; how to customize your diet for your biochemistry so that you lose weight permanently; the five keys to optimal women’s health; and much more.
