When it comes to our health, it’s easy to overcomplicate things and get overwhelmed by all the stuff we think we *should* be doing. But today’s podcast guest, Dr. Frank Lipman MD, has a hugely refreshing message: we can chill out! Yep, instead of getting caught up in every new product or research finding, and trying to overhaul our lifestyle overnight, Dr. Lipman wants us to listen to our intuition, individualise our habits, and focus on small, sustainable changes… It’s a relaxed approach to wellness, but BOY does it achieve results.
Dr. Frank Lipman MD is a world-renowned leader in functional and integrative medicine, the author of 5 bestselling books, and the founder and director of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. His clear, powerful advice on how to achieve true health has garnered him international acclaim, and seen him featured in the New York Times, Vogue, the Oprah Magazine, the TODAY show, The Dr. Oz Show, and plenty more.
There’s so much I love about Dr. Lipman’s approach to health, but my favourite thing is that he puts YOU squarely at the centre of your own wellness journey. There’s no preaching or “my way or the highway” stuff here… It’s all about unlocking your unique healing capacity, listening to your heart, and creating a lifestyle that works for you. #LoveIt
