SELF-CARE is essential to YOUR WELLNESS
|Herbert Benson, M.D. of the Harvard Medical School claims that maintaining good health is analogous to building a three-legged stool. |
One leg is Pharmaceuticals.
The second leg is Surgery & Medical Procedures.
And the third leg is Self-Care.
"Health and well-being," Dr. Benson says,
"is balanced and optimal only when
all three legs of the stool are in place."
