Traditional Mediterranean Lifestyle | Millennia in the making and as healthy as it gets!

by Labros Sidossis, Distinguished Professor, Department of Kinesiology and Health, Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA | President, Mediterranean Lifestyle Medicine Institute, Island of Leros, Greece

Twenty-five centuries ago Hippocrates emphasized a holistic approach to medicine, warning doctors not to neglect any body systems when examining a sick person. All lifestyle factors were to be considered when treating disease symptoms and the advice/treatment should focus not only on alleviating the symptoms but to achieve total wellbeing.

The presentation “Traditional Mediterranean Lifestyle: Millennia in the making and as healthy as it gets!” will introduce the concept of the Mediterranean lifestyle as a healthy way of living, a healthy lifestyle that can lead to total wellbeing.
