My greatest health asset is my mental attitude.
The piece of life-changing health advice I can give others is if there is something that has been bothering you aesthetically, change it – so many patients say they wish they had made the change years ago and that it had literally changed their lives once they had done it.
My greatest achievement so far has been the small changes I am able to effect in each individual to enhance their self-confidence and their quality of life.
The health lesson I have learned is to always eat well, stay fit and keep working - longevity is about both the body and mind. I haven't thought about how I would like to die, because I am too busy living. I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
