Speaking at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in Chicago, Regina Druz, MD, from the Integrative Cardiology Center of Long Island, discussed one case she saw where a patient benefitted from lifestyle medicine resulting in losing weight, reducing medication, and enjoying an overall higher quality of life.
