3. ELMO Activities | | ELMO E-Book


ELMO is excited and proud to announce to you one of its most important projects yet, created through the collaboration of various lifestyle medicine experts, the ELMO E-Book!

This book launches the concept of lifestyle medicine in Romania. It is a new area of development in daily life, which can act prophylactically to avoid the onset of chronic or acute diseases or to avoid their complications. Thus, with this proposal we bring to the readers' attention the amazing role of lifestyle in the prevention, progression, and treatment of chronic diseases.

Risk factor or drug, protector or foe, lifestyle can dramatically influence health maintenance or disease progression.
