Organized by the Municipality of Leros and the Mediterranean Lifestyle Medicine Institute, the “Mediterranean Diet or Mediterranean Lifestyle?” seminar took place in Lakki, Leros on May 23rd 19:00 EEST.
Twenty five centuries ago Hippocrates emphasized a holistic approach to medicine, warning doctors not to neglect any body systems when examining a sick person. All lifestyle factors were to be considered when treating disease symptoms. And the advice/treatment should focus not only on alleviating the symptoms but to achieve total wellbeing.
The newly formed Mediterranean Lifestyle Medicine Institute’s webinar “The Traditional Mediterranean Lifestyle – from Hippocrates into infinity”, will introduce the concept of the Mediterranean lifestyle as a healthy way of living, a healthy lifestyle that can lead to total wellbeing.
