Dr. Janet Greenhut
Preventive Medicine 43 years experience
Many things: Liking yourself, getting enough rest and sleep, feeling appreciated, being physically active, being part of a community, having close friends, feeling needed, having a sense of purpose, and much more.
Dr. Daniel Lebowitz
Anti-Aging Medicine 24 years experience
Optimal wellness: is self-actualizing and perhaps even helping others to self-actualize. For a person to be able to achieve his or her full potential and optimum health, all parts of life must be in balance and build on one another: physiology, safety, love and belonging, self-esteem and respect, and finally self-actualization.
