One's mental and emotional health are intimately intertwined with one's
physical health. For true longevity, a robust lifestyle with happiness
and peace, one must continually strive for both optimum physical and emotional/mental
health. Unfortunately, society and many institutions neglect this paramount
concept and focus heavily on the physical, and neglect the mind, the mental,
the psychological, the emotional and/or the humanistic aspects of medicine.
I am happy to be part of a medical group that allows us to promote psychiatric
and psychological aspects of medical care for I believe true longevity,
happiness and peace can only come when body and mind are treated as one.
