"Being able to obtain foods specifically selected, prepared and monitored to meet specific health needs is a revolutionary development."
ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) October 10, 2019
The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) today announced a collaboration with WeTheTrillions, a San Francisco-based public benefit corporation that is the first company to offer clinical-grade, customized, plant-based meals to help treat, reverse and prevent patients’ specific conditions such as diabetes, IBS, iron-deficiency anemia and other women’s health-related needs such as PCOS and menopause.
WeTheTrillions designs, makes, and delivers delicious customized, clinical-grade, plant-based meals tailored to each patient’s unique health needs. Users are paired with clinicians to help them follow a protocol to reverse or manage their conditions while receiving their meals in the comfort of their home. Through WeTheTrillions software, clinicians are able to seamlessly assess impact, track results and refine recommendations to help their patients achieve their peak health.
ACLM is the nation’s medical professional association focused on advancing the clinical practice of Lifestyle Medicine, which includes a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for treatment and reversal of chronic disease.
Through this new collaboration with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, WeTheTrillions aims to build lasting partnerships with clinicians, researchers and insurance providers to help shape the category of clinical-grade, customized nutrition as a reliable medical intervention both providers and payers can get behind while delivering measurable results for patients across the US.
“With the emerging pandemic of obesity, diabetes and other chronic yet preventable conditions, it is critical to build technologies and food products with the potential to create a systemic change in how health care is taught, delivered, billed, and reimbursed” said Lamiaa Bounahmidi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of WeTheTrillions. “We believe that food-dollars have the power to help fix public health. There is an untapped opportunity that could save trillions of dollars in health care costs while substantially help improve people’s quality of life and food is at its core. Evidence-based Lifestyle Medicine combined with the right technologies and accessible, customized food will play a transformative role in shifting public health away from the sick-care system we have today."
“WeTheTrillions provides a unique service to people wanting a customized approach to healthier living,” said ACLM President Dexter Shurney, MD, MBA, MPH, FACLM, DipABLM. “Being able to obtain foods specifically selected, prepared and monitored to meet their specific health needs is a revolutionary development for consumers, their providers and others. We are excited to have WeTheTrillions as a partner and a member of our Corporate Roundtable.”
WeTheTrillions is on a mission to reengineer preventative health care with data-driven plant-based food. 80% of the costliest diseases are preventable through food and yet very little clinical-grade interventions are accessible to patients to help prevent and reverse conditions and symptoms. They offer a full-stack approach from designing unique clinical-grade meals, to making them, delivering them and closing the loop with clinicians to assess impact, track results and refine recommendations. WeTheTrillions’ proprietary algorithm designs specific meals for each person’s unique health needs based on microbiome science, peer-reviewed clinical studies, and behavioral science. They also build a community of doctors who can access a dashboard and have a seamless view of what their patients eat and how it is impacting their biomarkers.

About the American College of Lifestyle Medicine
ACLM is the medical professional association for those dedicated to the advancement and clinical practice of Lifestyle Medicine as the foundation of a transformed and sustainable health care system. Lifestyle Medicine involves the use of the use of a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse the lifestyle-related, chronic disease that's all too prevalent. ACLM addresses the need for quality education and certification, supporting its members in their individual practices and in their collective desire to domestically and globally promote Lifestyle Medicine as the first treatment option, as opposed to a first option of treating symptoms and consequences with expensive, ever-increasing quantities of pills and procedures.
