Due to the overwhelming surge in COVID-19 cases and the strain it has placed on health care capacity in the communities we serve, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has activated crisis standards of care statewide. We are open and available to see patients, but you may experience delays at our ERs, hospitals, and clinics. We appreciate your patience. Access more info on COVID testing, vaccination, visitor policy, hospitalization data, and FAQs.

Your Guide to Success with Lifestyle Medicine

Each journey through lifestyle medicine is unique. Some people may only need help in a few areas, while others take several courses. Whatever your needs, St. Luke's can help you define your goals and plot a path forward.

At the core of lifestyle medicine is the idea that there are six areas—or pillars—that form the foundation of your health, and we have built a series of classes that focus on these pillars. 

The Pillars of Lifestyle Medicine

  • Nutrition

    Food is medicine. Learn how to incorporate more whole foods, fruits, and vegetables into your diet.

  • Physical Activity
