Iris Schrijver, MD, is a certified Lifestyle Medicine physician, author, international speaker, change catalyst and physician leader.
Her new book On the Path to Health, Wellbeing, and Fulfilment: To Your Health illuminates what influences our use of health information, explains how new science sheds light on health and disease, and reveals what determines the extent to which one can experience wellness.
These powerful themes are written with the lens of Lifestyle Medicine, the evidence-based medical discipline that helps individuals and their families adopt and sustain healthy behaviors that can affect health and quality of life. Evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention can include a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection—to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease. It involves the integration of lifestyle practices into the modern practice of medicine both to lower the risk factors for chronic disease or, if disease is already present, serve as an adjunct in its therapy.
Lifestyle Medicine brings together sound, scientific evidence in diverse health-related fields to assist the clinician and the healthcare team in the process of not only treating disease, but also promoting good health. And, importantly, it empowers patients to have ownership of their personal health outcomes.
To Your Health explores the foundation of the current issues in health and healthcare within this framework. The book provides a deeper understanding of the connections between body, mind, and the world by which they are influenced.
