The Dr. Francavilla Show

09-10-2023 • 35 mins

If you're a mom or part of a family, this episode is right up your alley.

In this episode, I'm joined by Dr. Toh Togolawi, a renowned family physician and double board-certified expert in lifestyle medicine, who is particularly enthusiastic about plant-based eating. We talk about lifestyle medicine and its strong focus on six foundational pillars crucial for preventing, treating, and even reversing chronic diseases.

The pillars are;

  1. Nutrition, with an emphasis on plant-based diets.
  2. Stress management.
  3. Regular physical activity.
  4. Avoidance of risky behaviors such as alcohol and tobacco use.
  5. Adequate sleep.
  6. Social connection

    In our conversation, Dr. Togolawi highlights the importance of passing down these principles to children, establishing a foundation for a healthier life as they grow. Whether it's adopting plant-based nutrition, encouraging more physical activity, or teaching stress management, involving kids in these practices can have a significant impact.

    Tune in for valuable insights into transforming your family's well-being.
