Why Lifestyle Medicine?

Wellness is not a ‘medical fix’ but a way of living – a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever

- Greg Anderson

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
- Soren Kierkegaard

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time; for that’s the Stuff Life is made of.

- Benjamin Franklin
