​Consultation with a lifestyle doctor

With a lifestyle doctor, you will receive information, individual guidance and follow-up with regard to how you can use lifestyle factors such as diet, physical activity, stress management, sleep, mental health principles, etc. in managing and treating your specific health condition.The first consultation usually lasts around 45 minutes and consists of three parts:

  • The doctor will first assess your general health, current diagnosis, and lifestyle, including lifestyle-related "vital signs" such as activity level, diet, sleep, tobacco, alcohol, stress, mental and social health, height and weight.

  • The doctor will then give you a brief overview of relevant lifestyle-related research on your current illness/diagnosis.

  • Based on this knowledge and your own starting point including lifestyle, coping beliefs and motivation to change, the doctor will work with you to draw up an individually adapted plan that includes:

    • prescription of specific lifestyle changes

    • guidance in implementing the changes

    • assessment of the need for follow-up

Lifestyle changes often take time to incorporate, especially when more extensive changes are recommended. If necessary, you will therefore have the opportunity to be followed up over time through follow-up class(es).
