Abstract

The what of Lifestyle Medicine, including a whole foods dietary pattern, has been well established, but the how has remained elusive. How do we apply what we know in a cost-effective and widely accessible manner to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease? Over the decade ahead, we believe the field of Lifestyle Medicine and the people who need it most will benefit from addressing the how. This article summarizes the founding and operational principles of FareWell Inc. - a digital therapeutics company targeting lifestyle-related cardiometabolic diseases. We outline our current use of mobile health technology and artificial intelligence and describe our early clinical experience, business model, and key anticipated challenges.
