How to Be Well: Frank Lipman, MD On The Keys To A Happy & Healthy Life

The Rich Roll Podcast

“Make your default mode one of generosity. It’s a nice way to live, and it’s contagious.”

Frank Lipman MD

Health isn't the absence of disease. It's a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing.

Frank Lipman, MD gets it. And today's conversation reflects this very ethos.

A leading trailblazer in Functional and Integrative Medicine, Frank began his training in his native South Africa. Disillusioned with the limitations of conventional medicine, he then spent 18 months working at clinics in the bush. Introduced to local traditional healers (sangomas) kindled an interest in non-traditional healing modalities, catalyzing a passion for combining the best of Western medicine with age-old Eastern techniques of healing, including acupuncture, Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, meditation, and yoga.

Today Frank treats patients holistically as the founder and director of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. In addition, he is a New York Times best-selling author of six books: Total Renewal*Revive*The New Health Rules*10 Reasons You Feel Old and Get Fat* and Young and Slim for Life*.

His newest book is entitled How To Be Well*, a beautifully illustrated primer on improving and strengthening your resilience, functioning, and overall health.

This conversation expands the aperture on what is required to live truly well. It's about understanding food as the very building blocks of life. It's about the primacy of sleep and movement. It's about how to mitigate and prevent the invisible assaults of everyday toxins. It's about the importance of carving out time to unwind and reboot. And it's about our innate need to connect with each other in order to awaken and enhance a sense of belonging and meaning

But most of all, this is a conversation about the power we all have to take better control over the quality of our health and lives.

One caveat: Frank is not vegan or plant-based. Let's just say we don't exactly see eye to eye on everything. But we are great friends who extend a mutual respect for each other. We agree on the majority of things that contribute to wellness and disease. And we enjoy poking fun at each other over our differences.

If we want to advance the conversation on the future of health, there is something to be said for building bridges.
