ROADMAP TO OPTIMAL HEALTH THROUGH

THE
BETTER YOU

BASE CAMP COURSE

The Better You Base Camp Course is a comprehensive, self-guided virtual program designed to help you reach your optimal levels of health and wellness, lower your risk of developing chronic disease, increase your energy levels, get better sleep, boost your moods and mental clarity, and feel amazing through proven and sustainable lifestyle shifts supported by medical science. By identifying unhealthy behaviors and replacing them with positive ones, you can enjoy the incredible benefits of great health for a lifetime!

While there are countless online health and wellness programs currently available, they aren’t created equal.

Many only focus on one or two aspects of health, such as diet and exercise. While some can help you achieve short-term results, chances are you will find yourself falling back into old habits once your program ends. Base Camp’s approach to health and longevity is built on the evidence-based principles and proven insights of leading-edge lifestyle medicine, with a strong focus on sustainability and real, lasting results.

We’re Drs.
Mark Stephany &

Jim Kosowicz

Founders of Sound Lifestyle Medicine, creators of Base Camp, and Board-Certified Internal Medicine physicians and Diplomats in the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.

During the combined 20 years that we practiced hospital-based medicine, we noticed an unsettling trend: despite receiving the very best care available, many people returned, again and again, complaining about the same medical issues. The reason? The treatments they received were intended to make their acute symptoms disappear, but didn’t often address the root causes of chronic problems, which often came down to lifestyle.

Recognizing the important role that lifestyle plays in our overall health and wellbeing, we expanded our medical expertise by becoming certified Diplomates in the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and founded Sound Lifestyle Medicine, a virtual lifestyle medicine practice that takes a holistic and evidence-based approach to optimizing health and wellness.


We developed Base Camp to help people just like you uncover simple and practical steps for transitioning to a healthier lifestyle, one that will help you feel better, live longer, and experience the incredible benefits of a healthier you!

Develop your personal roadmap to optimal health through

8 easy-to-follow, evidence-based modules:

  • Discover how to identify the specific changes you want to make, set clear and achievable personal health and wellness goals, and stay motivated and on track.

  • Discover how to gradually and sustainably develop a new pattern of eating, develop a greater understanding of the nutrition spectrum, and better deal with the inevitable “slip-ups.”

  • Discover how to build up your personal exercise program, with practical and manageable ways to gradually incorporate regular and joyful physical activity into your existing routine.

  • Discover the scientific story of your sleep cycle and what you can do to achieve more restful and restorative sleep.

  • Discover why having a supportive social network is important not only for living longer, but for successfully achieving your physical and emotional health goals.

  • Discover how to cultivate a healthier relationship with caffeine, and what you may not know about alcohol use and your overall health and wellbeing.

  • Discover how stress affects you physiologically, the important role of the fight-or-flight response, and how to develop better stress management techniques.

  • Discover how to keep your motivation and focus, so that you can stay on track with your healthy lifestyle for decades to come.

  • Who is this course for?
    The Better You Base Camp Course is for anyone looking to improve their health whether you are just taking the first steps toward doing so or have tried in the past. Unlike other programs focused only on diet or exercise, this course covers all of the lifestyle factors involved in your health so you will certainly learn something new and how to apply the information to your life.
  • I'm a vegan / vegetarian / omnivore, etc, will the Better You Base Camp Course be appropriate for me?
    At Sound Lifestyle Medicine we focus on a whole food plant based diet, but what we also emphasize is meeting you where you are at in your health journey. We are not here to tell you a WFPB diet is the ONLY way to eat. It's about finding out what works for you and your goals.
  • Does Sound Lifestyle Medicine promote a specific diet?
    We want to work with you to meet your goals. The lifestyle changes you want to make should make sense within the context of your life, including what you do for work, your family and support network, and your access to whole foods, among other elements. While Sound Lifestyle Medicine focuses on a whole food, plant-based diet, we understand that nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all prescription — and that you need to enjoy a diet to stick with it! We will work with you to create a healthy nutrition plan that fits your lifestyle and satisfies your taste buds.
  • How do I find out more about the Better You Program?
    Sign up for the Informational Call and we will be happy to answer all your questions about what the Better You Program entails and how it can help you get on the path toward better health!
  • How is lifestyle medicine different from functional medicine?
    While both lifestyle medicine and functional medicine take a preventative, whole-person approach to health, functional medicine relies more heavily on the lab testing of various hormones and metabolites in the body. This generally isn’t necessary and can become quite expensive as the tests add up! Sound Lifestyle Medicine does have the ability to order labs, but they are not required. Establishing a baseline through robust lab testing is far more common in functional medicine, whereas lifestyle medicine works to optimize your six pillars of health without requiring extensive initial testing.
  • Will I be required to get blood work done?
    No blood work is required, but it is certainly ideal to have this information to make the most informed choices. We generally recommend having the following blood work completed within the past year: Lipid panel A1c Basic metabolic panel Complete blood count
  • Do I need any specific apps, devices, or equipment when going through the Better You Program?
    While we can work with you without any of these, it is often helpful to have items such as a weight scale and blood pressure cuff. We do not promote nor recommend any specific apps, but we can work with you if you have any that you already enjoy.
  • Does Sound Lifestyle Medicine work with employers?
    Yes, contact us directly at hello@soundlifestylemedicine.com
  • What states are you available in?
    Currently, our one-on-one services are only available in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New York, Minnesota, Nevada, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin, but we will be expanding to other states soon. Let us know if you want to see our services in your state and keep an eye on our website and social media posts to stay informed!
  • Do you accept insurance or HSA/FSA?
    Sound Lifestyle Medicine is a cash-pay service. We do not currently accept insurance. Patients are able to submit fees to their FSA or HSA accounts for possible reimbursement. However, it is possible, that your doctor will be able to provide a “Superbill” that you can submit to your private insurance company for partial reimbursement (degree of reimbursement is variable depending on the type of insurance, medical condition(s) treated, etc).
  • Will there be any communication with my primary doctor, so they understand your service?
    Yes, if you have signed up for the Better You Program, we will send a letter to your primary care physician or subspecialist to inform them we will be working together.
