Paradigms of Lifestyle Medicine and Wellness

  • Robert ScalesEmail author
  • Matthew P. Buman


This chapter defines a paradigm for preventive medicine and offers a framework for physicians and allied health-care professionals to apply lifestyle medicine and wellness in the clinic. Strategies are identified to improve the physician’s ability to provide effective lifestyle medicine within a busy clinical practice. This includes education in preventive medicine and ongoing support for the physician that begins in medical school and prepares them to deliver team-based models of wellness.
