He is an enthusiastic wellness advocate and has created a weekly blog, numerous brochures, booklets, books and videos to help educate the community about healthy lifestyle and preventive measures to help ensure maximal fitness, nutrition, disease avoidance and longevity. Dr. Siegel is convinced that the best method for minimizing exposure to doctors and hospitals is simply for each of us to take responsibility for our own selves. He recognizes the key roles of responsible eating, regular exercise, sufficient sleep and avoidance of excessive stress and abuse of food, alcohol, tobacco, etc. As elementary as that seems, many of us are remiss in leading this nurturing lifestyle.
