LONDON, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Diabetes, obesity, heart disease, dementia and other chronic symptoms are affecting over 50% of the world's population. In the US alone 130 million people are affected by chronic illness and health professionals and patients alike are asking if there are solutions that go beyond treating symptoms and managing the disease.
At the first Lifestyle Medicine Summit June 1-7, 2017 – a free online event and part of a global awareness campaign – the world's top Lifestyle Medicine experts will reveal how to reverse 80% of Chronic Disease. 30 doctors, researchers and health care specialists will share how nutrition, stress, emotions & beliefs and our environment affect our health, well-being and longevity.
David Katz MD, one of the summit speakers and world-renowned authority in Lifestyle Medicine sums up the potential of Lifestyle Medicine:
"Lifestyle as medicine has the potential to prevent up to 80% of chronic disease; no other medicine can match that. In addition, it is potentially inexpensive and even cost-saving; free of all but good side effects; safe and appropriate for children and octogenarians alike. It is, quite simply, the best medicine we've got."
As part of the global awareness campaign and online summit the new inspirational film 'LIFESTYLE MEDICINE – The Emergence Of A New Health Paradigm' featuring Dean Ornish MD, Bruce Lipton PhD, Mimi Guarneri MD, David Katz MD, JJ Virgin, Neal Barnard MD, Dave Asprey, Dawson Church PhD and many other world-renowned health experts is being screened online for free from May 15-31, 2017.
The director/producer of the short-film and founder of the Lifestyle Prescriptions Foundation Johannes R. Fisslinger states,
"Health care is ready for disruption. We cannot afford the current health care model anymore and everyone seems to agree that something needs to change. I firmly believe that the solution is not more technology or better medication but using lifestyle modifications proven to reverse the majority of chronic health issues including diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, pain, depression, anxiety, dementia."
Watching the short-film and attending the Lifestyle Medicine Summit starting June 1 is free of charge.

Lifestyle Medicine is a scientific approach to prevent and treat illness by utilizing lifestyle interventions such as nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction and social support.
Green Prescriptions (GRx) are being used by health professionals as written advice to a patient as part of their health management and may include stress reduction, nutrition, fitness and social support guidelines.
Lifestyle Prescriptions® go beyond traditional lifestyle medicine and allow for laser-sharp habit and behavior improvements by finding the root-cause emotions, stress triggers & beliefs affecting specific symptoms quickly and then using effective Lifestyle Prescription® protocols, therapy & coaching skills to stimulate the natural self-healing and auto-regulation process.
The Lifestyle Medicine Summit is powered by the Lifestyle Prescriptions Foundation – a 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to create awareness about Lifestyle Medicine and bring Lifestyle Prescriptions® into health care practices around the world.
