Lifestyle Medicine is a field of medicine that relies on current medical evidence to treat, prevent and reverse chronic diseases through lifestyle changes. Lifestyle changes include: a diet that is mostly plant-based; physical activity; not smoking; good sleep habits; and, minimizing stress. Any positive changes can improve one’s health, so Dr. Blank focuses on progress, not perfection. Lifestyle Medicine combines the knowledge of healthy behaviors with the ability to help patients navigate through changes they want to make. Dr. Blank blends her expertise in building healthier lifestyles into her internal medicine practice to provide the most successful outcomes and create long-term health benefits for her patients.
