Did you know that most medical students and physicians do not receive a significant amount of nutrition and physical activity training? In this episode, we talk with Dr. Dexter Shurney about lifestyle medicine, what distinct value it offers patients, and how everyday choices we make can be a positive influence on our health. We’ll also discuss the difference between preventive and lifestyle medicine and why traditional “preventive” medicine may not prevent chronic disease.
