The Lifestyle Management Center (the “Center”) of Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubb Road (the “Hospital”) and Adventist Medical Center (“AMC”), are dedicated to providing health education to the public, promoting the importance of prevention over treatment.

Regarding to the World Health Organization’s global monitoring framework for prevention and control of non-communicable diseases, there is sufficient medical evidence indicating that premature deaths from most non-communicable diseases can be avoided by changing lifestyle habits, such as quitting smoking, avoiding alcohol, maintaining a balanced diet, and engaging in regular physical activities. Evidence also suggests that eliminating health behaviour risk factors can prevent 80% of heart diseases, strokes, and diabetes, and 40% of cancers.^ By helping the public adopt healthy lifestyles, non-communicable diseases can be prevented, thereby improving overall population health.

The Center, through various services and programs, including corporate wellness programs, Lifestyle Medicine Clinics, comprehensive lifestyle assessment, health screenings, vegetarian cooking classes, and weight management programs, and other interactive educational projects, helps participants change their lifestyles to achieve holistic physical, mental, and spiritual health.

NEWSTART® Program

NEWSTART® Program

The NEWSTART™ Program was founded at the Weimar Institute in California and aims to help clients prevent and treat chronic diseases through lifestyle change. The program is advocated by renowned doctors and scientists all over the world, including cardiologist and champion of preventive medicine, Dr. Dean Ornish, as well as Dr. T. Collin Campbell of Cornell University.

 

“NEWSTART™” is an acronym for the eight lifestyle principles the program espouses:

  • Nutrition: eats a whole food plant based diet
  • Exercise: promotes blood circulation
  • Water: purifies the body of toxins
  • Sunlight: reduces risk of depression and strengthens bones
  • Temperance: adopt a lifestyle marked by self-control
  • Air: activates cells and improves body function
  • Rest: repairs and restores damaged cells
  • Trust in Divine Power: invest in eternity

Experts believe that these eight principles are crucial to achieving complete health.

Participants will check into the health center and through classes, demonstrations, and practical exercises, rebuild their lifestyle habits physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually.

 

Over the years, the Program has achieved a wealth of positive results:

  • Just 18 days after completing NEWSTART™, 50% of the Program’s diabetic patients reported that they no longer needed medication
  • Half of the Program’s participants who suffer from high blood pressure saw their blood pressure levels return to normal
  • 18 days after completely NEWSTART™, 80% of the Program’s patients who suffer from diabetic neuropathy no longer experienced pain associated with the condition
  • Some participants reported a 40% drop in cholesterol levels after completing the Program
