Amsterdam Public Health has signed the Manifest for Lifestyle Medicine and thereby supports the importance of Lifestyle Medicine in curative care. It is well known that lifestyle interventions focusing on diet, physical activity, stress management and sleep are effective in preventing health complaints. However, less attention has been given to the effective use of lifestyle interventions for the recovery or treatment of diseases. All supporters of the manifest join forces to radically change the current health care of lifestyle-related diseases in the Netherlands and invite the Dutch government and the House of Representatives (in Dutch: Tweede kamer) to fully focus on (curative) Lifestyle Medicine.
