"Lifestyle 180": Cleveland Clinic 1-year program promises to reverse chronic disease through lifestyle modification

During the past 5 years, the Cleveland Clinic has moved aggressively to expand from illness management to wellness management. They even have a Wellness Institute. One example of its programs is Lifestyle 180 (R) which is "designed to reverse" the effects of chronic disease through lifestyle modification.

Here is a 5-minute video about the program from the Clinic YouTube channel:



The program focuses on nutrition, exercise, and stress management. The yearlong program is available at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute campus located in Lyndhurst, Ohio.
