Introduction to the role of lifestyle medicine for cancer prevention and survival


The six pillars of lifestyle medicine are a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection. It is estimated that by addressing these key lifestyle factors 80% or more of our common chronic diseases could be prevented or delayed.

Lifestyle habits play are key role in the prevention of cancer and supporting patients to live well after a diagnosis of cancer.

These three introductory talks will take you through the evidence supporting a lifestyle medicine approach for cancer, how to incorporate this learning into your clinical practice and a focus on healthy diet and nutrition. The teaching has been created by the team at Plant Based Health Online, the UK’s first CQC-regulated online, plant-based lifestyle medicine service.
