The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) has announced the addition of Terra Health Coaching to its Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable, a group of thought leaders and industry professionals who explore effective clinical innovations, activate marketing strategies, accelerate reimbursement and policy adoption, and pursue research and demonstrations of lifestyle medicine in practice. ACLM launched its Corporate Roundtable in 2016 and it now includes more than 40 active member organizations in the lifestyle medicine ecosystem.
Lifestyle medicine is defined as the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention—including a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection—as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease.
Terra Health Coaching offers a digital platform rooted in the principles of lifestyle medicine and behavioral science, plus integrative programs and a network of health coaches that help bridge the gap between health recommendations of clinicians in the exam room and patient lifestyles. Through one-on-one health coaching and patient-driven data collection, Terra empowers its users to adopt a lifestyle that promotes health and sustainability, including a plant-forward approach to diet.
