Chronic disease is now responsible for 70 to 80% of all health care expenditure, yet most health professionals treat chronic disease the same way they treat communicable disease: with pills and injections. While this might temporarily relieve acute symptoms, it does not address the underlying cause of the chronic disease.
The International Board of Lifestyle Medicine (IBLM) sets and maintains standards for assessment and credentialing of physicians and PhD/Masters level health professionals in Lifestyle Medicine globally. Certification as an IBLM diplomate signifies specialized knowledge in the practice of lifestyle medicine and distinguishes a health professional as having achieved competency in lifestyle medicine. The IBLM certification is recognized by all participating continental lifestyle medicine associations and societies.
