Lifestyle Clinic

Lifestyle factors such as diet, physical activity, stress level, sleep quality, and use of substances such as alcohol and nicotine can dramatically impact health and sense of well- being. Through Wilmington Health’s Lifestyle Clinic, patients who are considering making a positive health behavior change are empowered, guided, and supported throughout the process. Possible areas of focus include improving diet and activity level, weight loss, and smoking cessation, as well as other strategies for developing and sustaining healthy habits. The American College of Lifestyle Medicine provides the following definition on their website: “Lifestyle medicine is 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.” 1

"Dr. Mough has been able to help me understand what nutrition is about. She has taught me that nutrition is not so much a restriction, but is more of a benefit. I have already started seeing success. I don’t like to take medications, and I feel like these plans will help me decrease my need for some medications going forward."
