CALM - The Canadian Academy of Lifestyle Medicine

  • Looking for clear, sensible guidance on leading a healthy lifestyle?
  • Need a new approach to integrated health care for your patients?
  • Seeking options for chronic illness and disease treatments or reversal?

Relax, you've found CALM!

CALM is the Canadian Academy of Lifestyle Medicine, a passionate group of health care professionals, physicians, practitioners, academics and business leaders who want every Canadian to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

CALM; your Canadian Lifestyle Medicine network

Lifestyle Medicine is not rocket science; it's simply taking a look at the whole range of factors that affect your health, and working out what changes to make.


Knowing where to begin is often the hardest part. As a result, lifestyle medicine enables individuals to be part of their own health care and to play an active role in managing and even reversing chronic illness and disease.


CALM aims to help health care professionals, physicians and individuals across Canada access reliable, authoritative, evidence-based information on how to implement healthy lifestyle choices.
