American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine (AJLM), published bimonthly, is a professional resource for practitioners seeking to incorporate lifestyle practices into clinical medicine. AJLM focuses on:

  • Recognizing and addressing the impact that lifestyle decisions and activities have on health
  • Emphasizing the interaction between traditional therapies (e.g. pharmaceuticals, nutritional products, etc.) and lifestyle modalities to treat disease and achieve superior outcomes
  • Highlighting and providing information about therapies that minimize the extent to which illness impacts lifestyle.

AJLM publishes a broad range of articles intended to help primary care providers and other health professionals guide their patients to lead healthier lifestyles. The journal provides commentaries and research reviews on nutrition and diet, physical activity, behavior change, cardiovascular disease, obesity, anxiety and depression, sleep problems, metabolic disease, and more—in a readable, immediately accessible, and usable format.

The journal is edited by Dr. James M. Rippe, a nationally renowned cardiologist and authority on health, fitness, healthy weight loss and lifestyle medicine. Author of over 42 books on health and fitness for the public and editor of leading medical textbooks in intensive care and lifestyle medicine, Dr. Rippe is the founder of Rippe Lifestyle Institute, a leading research, communication and health promotion organization. He is also the founder and director of the Rippe Health Evaluation, a series of comprehensive health evaluations conducted at the state-of-the-art medical facility in the town of Celebration, Florida.
