The doctor-patient relationship

A patient response for care received December 13, 2016

Thank you Dr. Brevig! [regarding medication adjustment] so far so good. :-) And my knee and my neck are much better too. You did a lot in a little time! Impressive!
— Kelly R (Lifestyle Medicine of Idaho actively enrolled patient)
The lifeblood of medicine is the physician - patient relationship. This foundation must always be considered, and it must always impact the flow of care and medical decision making. The point at which we abandon this is the point at which we risk breaking trust with those who are relying on us as their providers and educators.

Major reduction in breast cancer risk with a few simple steps

The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) is one of the leading authorities on diet and cancer.  In 2013 they published research findings which showed a 62 percent reduced risk of breast cancer if women adopted just 3 simple behaviors.

  1. Limit alcohol intake
  2. Eat a diet of mostly plant foods
  3. Maintain a normal body weight

Lifestyle Medicine of Idaho works with patients to track and maintain healthy habits, using My Fitness Pal, FitBit, and other means to track healthy behaviors and lower risk for breast cancer among all its female patients.
