Play • 52 min

At Diapoint, we talk a lot about Lifestyle Medicine and its importance in diabetes management and general health. But with all the sudden online focus, you might be a little skeptical about its usefulness.


In this episode, we clear up all doubts and speak with Aarti Javari-Mehta, M.D. a Board Certified Internal Medicine Specialist who uses Lifestyle Medicine in her medical practice, and modern medical guidelines that recommend doctors prescribe lifestyle changes first when treating many chronic conditions.


Dr. Aarti walks us through the pillars of lifestyle medicine:

  1. Whole-food, plant-based nutrition

  2. Physical activity

  3. Restorative sleep

  4. Stress management

  5. Avoidance of risky substances

  6. Positive social connections


Pam and Dr. Aarti discuss many myths and facts about these pillars. They also shed light on the latest diet trends and how to eat intuitively and mindfully. Dr. Aarti also shares some tips and information that you can implement now to improve your overall health today.
