The World Health Organization predicted that by 2020, two thirds of worldwide human diseases and deaths will be associated with unhealthful lifestyle choices that individuals, families, and groups make in their everyday lives. Currently, one out of every two adults in America suffers from one or more lifestyle-related chronic diseases and disorders such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, respiratory disease, autoimmune disease, mental illness, and addiction. Furthermore, 86% of medical care expenditures are spent for treating lifestyle-related chronic diseases while only 5% are for prevention.

According to the report from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 80% of chronic disease and disorders can be prevented through lifestyle modification. Moreover, efforts to prevent or delay lifestyle-related diseases could reduce the economic burden of health care expenditures among individuals, families, employers, and government. This good news is endorsed especially by the new science of Epi-genetics, claiming that our inherited genes are not our destiny. Its key concept lies in the principle that Epi-genomes are designed to change positively or negatively where gene expressions are altered in response to the lifestyle choices we make every day and in the environment we are exposed to, leading to the spectrum between wellness and illness.

However, it was documented that fewer than 5% of adults engage in the top health behaviors and only 20% of adults are thriving. It is imperative that people, well or ill, need help and support in adopting, practicing, improving, or sustaining wellness promoting and disease preventing and treating lifestyles. It was evident that whether having health issues or not, people more easily transform their lifestyles when they have visions, motivations, resources, tools, or supports than their counterparts who don’t have these or who face challenges, barriers, limitations, etc. Furthermore, health care providers, especially primary care physicians, who have received training in serving their patients with lifestyle counseling or coaching including health behavior change techniques are more likely to do so and their patients are more satisfied with increased clinical outcomes and emotional wellbeing.

Our Center for Lifestyle Medicine and Wellness Care (CLMWC) was created to provide evidence-based, data-driven, and in-depth knowledge, insights, skills, resources, tools, and network that help prevent and control the surge of lifestyle medicine diseases that exist in the Eastern hemisphere while promoting health and wellness among Asians. We are dedicated to educating and facilitating health care professionals and patients about the power of a holistic lifestyle medicine and coaching approach to health and wellness. By participating in our center, reading the information in our website, attending a live workshop, studying an online course, or utilizing our coaching services, you will be able to examine and improve your life, be your authentic self, be healthy, thrive, and live to your full potential
