Episode Notes

I met Frank in 2018 and taught him and his entire team to meditate. Since then we have stayed close and he has sent many of his patients along to learn.

For almost 40 years, Frank has guided people to help them feel healthier, look great, and increase energy and resiliency to better deal with life’s stresses.

After his initial medical training in South Africa, he spent 18 months working at clinics in the bush. In 1984 he emigrated to the US and became chief medical resident at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. During this time he began studying nutrition, acupuncture, herbal medicine, biofeedback, meditation, and yoga.

He founded his own clinic, Eleven Eleven Wellness in 1992. As a leader in Functional Medicine, Frank practices what he calls Good Medicine; a blend of cutting-edge, modern modalities with age-old healing techniques from the East creating, together with the patient, a personal health care plan. This integrative approach takes into account physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing.

He is a New York Times best-selling author whose recent books include:

Better Sleep, Better You: Your No-Stress Guide for Getting the Sleep You Need and the Life You Want

The New Rules of Aging Well

How To Be Well: The 6 Keys to a Happy and Healthy Life

So speaking of meditation, here’s Frank. Enjoy.
