As a cardiologist and anti-aging physician who’s spent a career connecting the dots between physical, metabolic, emotional, mental, and even spiritual aspects of health, I’ve realized leading a healthy life is simple: It’s all about maximizing our own energy and being in harmony with the natural energies around us. That’s right, we all have the innate potential for vitality because we are all energetic beings in a vibrational world.
