Am J Lifestyle Med 2019 Mar-Apr;13(2):145-147. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Department of Pharmacy Practice, Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, Omaha, Nebraska.

Sports drinks originally developed to improve performance and prevent or treat dehydration, heat stroke, and muscle cramps in elite athletes are consumed regularly by nearly 60% of the adolescent population. Sports drinks are often perceived as healthy, and marketing campaigns fail to delineate the types and amount of activity that warrant appropriate use. Current trends in adolescent consumption of sports drinks will be reviewed and approaches to reduce consumption, including counseling on the appropriate use of sports drinks, will be discussed.

Department of Exercise Science, Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina (RGW, MWB, KB).

Over the past 3 decades, public health professionals have worked to stem the rising childhood obesity epidemic. Despite the field's best efforts, no progress has been made in reducing child obesity. One reason for this failure may be that obesity prevention and treatment efforts have predominately been delivered during the 9-month school year. Read More

Pharmacists are well positioned to promote lifestyle medicine through health and wellness coaching.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 Nov-Dec;12(6):451-455. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville, Greenville, South Carolina (SST, ABK).

The field of health and wellness coaching holds great promise for making health behavior change interventions available to more individuals. We assert that the health and wellness literature should recognize the potential of lay persons to provide health coaching and lay person health coach studies should be included in the compendium compiled by Sforzo and colleagues. Limiting the field to current health professionals decreases the number of potential coaches unnecessarily. Read More

It is well established that evidence based clinical nutrition and lifestyle practices play a pivotal role in the prevention, treatment and potential reversal of various common chronic diseases. However, this area of science is under appreciated at all levels of medical education and training. Most medical schools and residency programs do not offer any organized training in nutrition and lifestyle medicine. Read More

With more than 85% of health care costs attributable to chronic health conditions, an emphasis on treating the underlying causes of these conditions is imperative. Lifestyle medicine offers treatments that can reverse a wide range of chronic health conditions at minimal cost and without negative side effects. Although one might expect its use to be widespread among health care professionals, it is far from common in everyday practice. Read More

School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska.

In 2018, the Surgeon General released a public health advisory emphasizing the importance of naloxone in preventing opioid overdose deaths. Legislation is rapidly changing to simplify the process of obtaining naloxone by expanding who can receive and distribute the life-saving drug. Even with legislation in place expanding access to naloxone, the drug is underutilized and health care providers are responsible for ensuring these efforts are put to use within their practice.

Department of Health and Human Performance, University of Houston, Houston, Texas (TL, KRA, CAJ).

Health promotion strategies typically include changing the environment, providing supervision to decrease the likelihood an unhealthy behavior will occur, and increasing skills to make decisions supporting health in environments in which such choices are challenging to make. The first two strategies are important in improving the environment to promote healthy decision making. However, the creation of restrictive environments has repeatedly shown to not support disease prevention in the long term. Read More

Risk of Energy Drink Consumption to Adolescent Health.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2019 Jan-Feb;13(1):22-25. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department of Nutrition and Center for Nutrition in Schools, University of California, Davis, California.

Energy drinks are beverages marketed to quickly increase alertness and performance of the consumer that typically contain relatively high quantities of caffeine, simple carbohydrates, and a mixture of additional ingredients. The carbohydrate sources, usually glucose and sucrose, found in the beverages supply the substrates needed for physiological energy, while the high caffeine content supplies the perceived energy through enhancing feelings of alertness during fatigued states. Although mean youth caffeine consumption as a whole has decreased over the past 2 decades, adolescent energy drink consumption has significantly increased in the past 10 years. Read More

Clinical Lifestyle Medicine Strategies for Preventing and Reversing Memory Loss in Alzheimer's.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 Sep-Oct;12(5):391-395. Epub 2018 May 11.

American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Chesterfield, Missouri (PS).

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia and currently affects over 5 million Americans and 30 million individuals worldwide. Unfortunately, the current approach to treating AD provides nothing more than a marginal, unsustained, symptomatic effect, with little or no effect on disease progression itself. To attain effective improvements in AD, one must determine risk factors, address the underlying causes, and focus on a combination of functional and lifestyle medicine strategies that provide a comprehensive, programmatic, and network-based approach that is sufficient to achieve epigenetic transformation and neurologic healing through its multiple and necessary synergistic components.

Authors:
Amy S Chappell

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 Sep-Oct;12(5):365-369. Epub 2018 Apr 27.

Naples, Florida.

Lifestyle medicine may be the most effective way of treating illness anxiety disorder (IAD), formerly hypochondriasis. IAD as defined in the DSM-5 can now be diagnosed using positive symptoms, which means it is no longer a diagnosis of exclusion. Tools used in lifestyle medicine including motivational interviewing and mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) may be particularly useful in the management of IAD. Read More

Current medical education lacks significant training in the principles and practices of lifestyle medicine.

Lifestyle Medicine Inpatient Consultation Services at Loma Linda University Health: A Novel Approach in a Tertiary Care Center.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 May-Jun;12(3):227-229. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, California.

As a nation facing primary care provider shortages, an expanding chronic disease burden, and rising health care costs, lifestyle medicine interventions have become critical for patient care and management. The current fee-for-service health care system in the United States is designed for delivering acute care but has made it challenging to deliver and be reimbursed sufficiently for lifestyle interventions that can help prevent and treat chronic disease. Loma Linda University Health began to address these concerns through the creation of an inpatient consultation service for the neurology rehabilitation stroke team. Read More

Authors:
Nicole D White

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 May-Jun;12(3):224-226. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, Omaha, Nebraska.

Contemporary hormonal contraception formulations contain lower doses of estrogen, have new synthetic progestin components, and provide novel methods of delivery that have not been studied extensively in relation to breast cancer risk. Given that hormonal contraception is the leading method of birth control in the United States, it is important to reevaluate risk using current formulations. Recent studies including contemporary hormonal contraception formulations will be described. Read More

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 May-Jun;12(3):220-223. Epub 2018 Mar 5.

Department of Behavioral Science, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas (NHP).

Physical activity is an important target for improving health and well-being among cancer survivors. Cancer clinicians are uniquely positioned to promote physical activity among survivors through follow-up visits for treatment planning and surveillance. Providers should prioritize assessment of guideline-concordant physical activity and facilitate achievement of physical activity guidelines through exercise prescription, goal setting, addressing barriers, and capitalizing on support systems.

Department of Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Cancer is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Diet, nutrition, physical inactivity, and obesity have been identified as important contributors to the increasing cancer incidence worldwide. To effectively plan interventions to reduce cancer incidence and to influence the public's decisions regarding health behaviors, it is important for professionals to have an understanding of the ways in which people understand risk with regard to development of cancer.

Informed Consent: Is It Accompanied by Full Disclosure?

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 Mar-Apr;12(2):128-129. Epub 2017 Oct 19.

Loma Linda University Health, Loma Linda, California.

Informed consent assumes full disclosure has been discussed in its entirety. However, is full disclosure ever really achieved? This column discusses how lifestyle medicine, both philosophically and ethically, must be a standard component of informed consent. Yet despite unequivocal evidence regarding the efficacy of lifestyle medicine, few physicians even consider lifestyle medicine as a viable option in the informed consent process. Read More

In Search of a Good Night's Sleep: Hormones, Mind, Movement, and Breath.

Authors:
Cindy Geyer

Am J Lifestyle Med 2018 Mar-Apr;12(2):120-123. Epub 2017 Dec 28.

Canyon Ranch Lenox, Lenox, Massachusetts.

Sleep disturbances are common in postmenopausal women and contribute to increased morbidity and mortality. Sleep apnea may be underdiagnosed in women, and other conditions such as insomnia and restless legs may coexist with sleep apnea. This case illustrates the complex interplay of anatomical, hormonal, metabolic and psychological factors that can interfere with restorative sleep, and the importance of both diagnostic testing and clinical history in identifying which combination of therapies will be most beneficial in improving sleep quality and quantity.
