We all have that go-to friend for when we need advice, a shoulder to cry on, or an exceptionally fun night out—but what about for when we need health and wellness insight from a serious professional and don’t have time to take a trip to our local MD? We’d like to introduce you to some health and wellness industry experts for those times you need to battle stress, lose those extra 10 pounds, or just get some tips to make it through a rough patch. They’re bound to become your wellness go-to gurus!
Dr. Andrew Weil
“Pay attention to your body. The point is everybody is different. You have to figure out what works for you.”
Dr. Weil is probably a name you’ve been hearing for years! He is a leader in the field of integrative medicine—a blend of evidence-based medicine and alternative medicine that heals the body, mind, and spirit for a greater sense of wellbeing. Dr. Weil is the founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (AzCIM) at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center; the editorial director of drweil.com; the author of self-healing publications and books that have sold nearly 10 million copies worldwide; and the director of integrative health at Miraval Life in Balance Resort in Tucson, Arizona.

“Together we can help create a peaceful, just, sustainable, and healthy world.”
Easily one of the most recognized names in wellness, Deepak Chopra, M.D., is a holistic health guru with 21 New York Times bestsellers under his belt. He founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing in 1995, which is now located within the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California. Here, people can heal their body, mind, and spirit in a tranquil, rejuvenating setting through meditation, workshops, and retreats. Chopra was a long-time regular on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and he can now be a regular influence in your life!

“Never forget that the body is the temple of the soul.”
Yet another Oprah regular was Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has since started his own hit television program (check us out on The Dr. Oz Show!) and has become America’s go-to health expert. Dr. Oz got his start as a cardiothoracic surgeon and has since been named one of the “100 Most Influential People” by Time and one of the “75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century” by Esquire, among other notable accolades.

Dr. Wendy Bazilian
“My philosophy is simple: eat well, move daily, be healthy.”
Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, MA, RD, is a registered dietitian and an American College of Sports Medicine-certified health and fitness specialist, as well as the nutrition advisor at Golden Door Fitness Resort and Spa in Escondido, California, and a contributor to The SpaFinder Wellness Blog. She is co-owner of Bazilian’s Health Clinic in San Diego, author of The SuperFoodsRx Diet, and has contributed to a number of books, including the original New York Times bestseller, SuperFoodsRx.

Dr. Frank Lipman
“There is no such thing as one right diet for everyone, or for that matter, the right supplements or exercise routine. We are all as unique as our fingerprints.”
After becoming board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Frank Lipman took his studies deeper and delved into the world of alternative medicine, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, nutrition, meditation, and yoga. Thanks to these studies, he re-aligned his practice to what he calls “Good Medicine,” which is used in his Eleven-Eleven Wellness Center in New York City and has helped thousands of people reclaim their vitality.
