What is Lifestyle Medicine?
It’s the evidence-based medical specialty that uses lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substance use, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse non-communicable disease, sometimes referred to as degenerative chronic disease.
The impact of COVID-19 is spreading misfortunes across our beautiful islands. Individuals and families are feeling the pinch from reduced hours and job losses. From family units to corporate boardrooms and our national government – spreading the meagre and sparse wealth is necessary just to survive from day to day. The unique challenges we now all face has to do with one’s health. It is no coincidence then that in the middle of this pandemic, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Fiji inaugurates a Wellness Centre – now branded Hope Clinic. Why? Because no one can ignore a fundamental truth: you can have all the money in the world, but if you don’t have your health, money can’t replace it. Seventh-day Adventists are committed to spreading the inspired health message – a plant-based diet, sunlight, fresh air, exercise, water, temperance, rest , and trust in God. It is our way of sharing God’s love for humanity in our community and ultimately help everyone lead a better life.
Spread the Health – visit Hope Clinic soon.
