Dr. Lipman's Message
“Through working with patients over the last 30 years, I know that the diet and lifestyle choices you make have the power to transform your health and well-being — regardless of genetic predispositions.
What you eat, how much chemical and toxic exposure you’ve had, what stresses you tolerate, what you believe, how you are supported, and how you move are all critical to ensuring a long and healthy life.
I created Be Well to help consumers easily discover practical, accessible advice, guidance, and high-quality nutritional supplements to address their health concerns and help them make the life changes essential for their optimal health.
Below are my top tips for healthy living — starting right now. I believe in the massive power of making small changes, one step at a time. It’s never too late to take control of your health.”
Take care and be well,
Dr. Frank Lipman M.D.
7 GUIDELINES FOR A HEALTHIER LIFE
Eat real food: Eat a variety of whole, fresh foods — and avoid packaged and processed foods as much as possible. Click here for a long list of delicious — and healthy! — recipes.
Move your body: Stay physically active and exercise regularly. Find an activity you love — walking, gardening, weightlifting, yoga, swimming, running, dancing — and incorporate it into your daily routine.
Get quality sleep: Get adequate, restful sleep — between 7 and 8 hours. Not getting enough quality sleep can wreak havoc on your system because it’s the time our bodies are devoted to hormone regulation, muscle repair, memory consolidation and so much more.
Manage your stress: Take quiet time for yourself daily, and if you can, develop a meditation and / or restorative yoga practice to help you to manage stress.
Supplement wisely: Fortify yourself against environmental contaminants, depleted food sources, and the effects of stress on your body by supplementing with nutrients that are hard to obtain through diet alone.
Lighten your toxic load: In addition to eating clean, choosing chemical-free household and personal care products can minimize your exposure to toxins.
Maintain connections: Find meaning in your life and build and maintain your connections to others.
