Did you know that eating the right foods can heal and reverse chronic lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease? Are you tired of being prescribed medicine as a band-aid approach to better health? Do you want to take charge of your own health and well-being, while seeing real improvements in your cholesterol, blood pressure and weight? Do you want to feel better than you’ve felt in a long time?

Let Rochester Lifestyle Medicine help you. We are a team of over 25 Rochester-area doctors and medical professionals dedicated to working with individuals to improve their health with simple lifestyle changes. Our CHIP Revolution program offers a year-long, supportive environment to inspire happy, healthy people and communities.

The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) is a scientifically proven lifestyle method that can help prevent and reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases. You will learn how eating the right foods, reducing stress, and adding daily physical movement can have a powerful effect on your health.

Lifestyle Medicine addresses the causes, and not just the symptoms of disease. Our team uses a whole-food plant-based diet, along with exercise and stress management to help people prevent, treat, and reverse many common conditions. In consultation with their primary physician, many of our patients are able to reduce or eliminate their medications.

Are you ready to get healthy and be part of a thriving community? Learn about a new lifestyle program that can benefit you!

CHIP Revolution


We understand that it will take a revolution to change the unhealthy habits of our community. That’s why we’ve created our CHIP Revolution program, designed around our core CHIP curriculum.

Learn about our CHIP Revolution program.



We know that many people will need ongoing support to help them stick with the CHIP Principles they acquired during the first year of the CHIP Revolution. CHAMP, the CHIP Alumni Maintenance Program, was created to fill that need.
