The rationale for Lifestyle Medicine certification is:

  • To educate interested physicians, health and allied health professionals about Lifestyle Medicine
  • To set a common standard/language for Lifestyle Medicine protocols globally
  • To differentiate between the evidence-based Lifestyle Medicine professionals and the non-evidence based Lifestyle Medicine practitioners
  • To set a global Lifestyle Medicine benchmark
  • To attract health insurance funding for evidence-based Lifestyle Medicine (by requiring that any fund receivers be formally certified)
  • to “legitimize” Lifestyle Medicine and have the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine (ABLM) certification recognize by the American Board of Medical Specialties
