Supporting Organizations

The following esteemed organizations support our global movement to make Lifestyle Medicine and Health Coaching accessible to everyone and demand governments and state officials to make solving the Chronic Disease Pandemic a priority in their administrations.

The Chronic Disease Epidemic

The shocking reality is that over 1 billion people worldwide suffer from one or more chronic symptoms. Over 75% of those hospitalized with COVID had pre-existing chronic conditions.¹


Obesity, diabetes, heart, auto-immune, digestive, addictions, and other chronic diseases are out of control.

Patients deserve and demand options and a choice of treatment in addition to medical management of chronic conditions.

Families, parents, and children suffer unnecessarily because they are not being told about evidence-based lifestyle healthcare options.

Healthcare needs to change

Healthcare systems must pivot towards preventive and integrated care to effectively combat chronic diseases, which now dominate global health burdens.


The current reactive, acute-care model falls short in managing conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, which demand long-term, holistic approaches.


By focusing on prevention, addressing lifestyle factors, and tackling social determinants of health, healthcare can significantly reduce the prevalence and impact of these diseases.


Such a shift not only promises better health outcomes but also offers a sustainable path forward, reducing the overwhelming costs associated with chronic disease management.

Prevention and Lifestyle Medicine WORK

The majority of non-communicable, chronic health issues like diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, depression, and anxiety can be reversed through comprehensive Lifestyle Medicine protocols and with the help of certified Lifestyle Medicine Practitioners and Health Coaches.¹


Based upon proven results in numerous scientific studies and journal articles ¹, the following conditions will almost certainly show improvement: Hypertension Diabetes Obesity Early prostate cancer Gall & Kidney stones Rheumatoid arthritis Ulcerative colitis Crohn's disease Depression Anxiety Pain and many others ...
