LIFESTYLE MEDICINE AND CHRONIC DISEASES | PREVENTION AND TREATMENT

The European Lifestyle Medicine Organization is proud to present to you all its latest lifestyle medicine project, the ELMO E-Book!

This book is the product of a fruitful cooperation between ELMO and the below listed lifestyle medicine experts dedicated to the prevention and treatment of all that threatens a healthy lifestyle.


E-Book Foreword

This book launches the concept of lifestyle medicine in Romania. It is a new area of development in daily life, which can act prophylactically to avoid the onset of chronic or acute diseases or to avoid their complications. Thus, with this proposal we bring to the readers' attention the amazing role of lifestyle in the prevention, progression, and treatment of chronic diseases. Risk factor or drug, protector or foe, lifestyle can dramatically influence health maintenance or disease progression.
The book brings together the experience of personalities with a prominent reputation in the Romanian medical life, validating the concepts on each specialty. Lifestyle Medicine, using the latest scientific evidence, becomes a feasible tool, useful for each specialty, with reflection in primordial, primary, and secondary prevention. The relevance of prevention and adherence to a healthy lifestyle is also relaunched by the current COVID-19 pandemic. All recommendations for proper nutrition, sustained physical activity, restful sleep, mindfulness, absence of smoking and stress management have been overturned by quarantine, isolation in the context of this virus.
All the more so, the following pages will provide recommendations and explanations for the current period, when lifestyle should be approached from a medical perspective with much more conviction, for educational purposes at population level.
We would like to express our warmest thanks to an elite team who, with vision, realized the future potential of this field and, with passion and enthusiasm, mobilized and developed this topic in record time. We are convinced that through such people who believe in lifestyle, through doctors who are true role models for their patients, we will succeed in developing prevention in Romania and in putting this innovative concept into practice.
Certainly, those who look carefully at this book will discover and be able to confirm Jim Roh's words: 'Lifestyle is culture – the appreciation of good music, dance, art, sculpture, literature, plays and the art of living well. It's a taste for the fine, the unique, the beautiful'.
