Holistic Approaches to Health and Wellness

Updated: Jun 10

Dr. Shawn Weiss joins Suzanne to talk about holistic care, why those over 55 should incorporate some of these practices, and share some of the most popular ones that can be done at home. Weiss provides balanced functional wellness education and coaching based on the the six pillars of health: exercise, stress, sleep, nutrition, gut health, and emotional health.

Dr. Weiss starts by defining holistic care, saying, "By definition, it's really the ability to take care of your physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social health. And really just understanding the connectivity between all of it. We have a very compartmentalized medical system. You have specialists for absolutely everything. Now I'm a firm believer, I've been in that world for the last 26 years. But there's a lot more that you can do. And I call it a sick care system, honestly, because I think that there's a lot of profitability for people being sick, and if you don't take care of your health, now you're going to be forced to take care of your illness later.

"Being able to have an open mind to understand that there are other ways to understand how your body works, and understand the connection between your physical and your mental health, your socialization, and your spiritual wellness. There's all kinds of wonderful studies that show, if you dig a little bit deeper, you can get into root cause health and just kind of get to the bottom of why things are happening... We can remedy some of these illnesses and symptoms in a different way."

Dr. Weiss has a Spring Into Action promotion, her Thrive over 55! 60 days to Optimal Health Coaching Program. Work personally with Shawn to address all 6 pillars of health, which includes personalized plans of action.
