AMG: Traditional and lifestyle medicine in alliance
The Advanced Medical Group clinic in London is more than just a medical centre. It’s an integrated hub of healthcare excellence where you can access help and advice from healthcare professionals, enabling you to take control of your own wellbeing and make informed lifestyle changes.
What is lifestyle medicine?
Lifestyle medicine is an approach to taking control of your own health by making changes to the way you live day to day. As The Canadian Academy of Lifestyle Medicine (CALM) says ( , lifestyle medicine is a matter of:
“Taking a look at the whole range of factors that affect your health, and working out what changes to make … Lifestyle medicine enables individuals to be part of their own health care and to play an active role in managing and even reversing chronic illness and disease.”
Lifestyle medicine can be integrated into the approached used by traditional medicine and health care practitioners including; chiropractors, physiotherapists, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, wellness coaches, acupuncturists, etc.
The best of both
At AMG, we take a holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. So, you’ll find traditional medicine specialists working alongside healthcare professionals to help people like you lead happier, healthier lives.
AMG helps this happen more easily and naturally by giving everyone space in the same building. So, if your physician refers you to a healthcare professional such as a podiatrist or nutritionist to complement or continue a course of treatment, chances are they are just down the corridor, not halfway across town!
