“As a western-trained cardiologist with an integrated and holistic approach, I believe prevention is of utmost importance—not just for heart health, but total health. And it isn’t about a prescription or a quick fix. True wellness comes from the five pillars of health: nutrition, exercise and flexibility, stress management, sleep, and community involvement (the best way to lift your spirits is to lift someone else’s). Our medical system is not set up to sustain the kind of support we as individuals really need to achieve real wellness. The burden of that lies with us—and requires time and effort.” – Dr. Goodman
