My name is: Lillie Rosenthal, D.O. I’m a lifestyle medicine expert with a Manhattan-based private practice.
I’m known for: helping people feel and function optimally using lifestyle as medicine.
I’m hosting a retreat called: Nurture Your Nature: Re-Boot Camp.
It’s located at: Villa Serena in Rincon Bay, Samana Peninsula, Dominican Republic; December 3-7, 2017.
We were drawn to this spot because: it’s beautiful and calming. I love the ocean and warm in the winter! There’s a vegan chef on the premises and the destination is listed as one of the "best 1000 places to visit on he globe."
This retreat is special because: I’m a physician with 30 years of experience helping people become their healthiest selves. My “5 Point Medical Makeover” plan helps participants learn that movement is medicine and food is fuel, as well as sleep strategies, how to stress less and how to manage vices/de-vices.
Eighty percent of how we age is dependent on how we behave. This is a five-day transformative experience in ultimate self-care and lifestyle medicine, the lessons from which can be applied to participants' lives at home for healthier living.
One thing you can’t miss is: a walk along the ocean at sunset.
Your body will thank you because: of the healthy food, restorative sleep and the inner strength from walking, hiking and swimming!
I never retreat without bringing: My running shoes for a run, hike or long walk to explore and stay healthy (and Arnicare, in case I overdue it!)
Retreating is part of my process because: It invites me out of my bubble—geographically and mentally—to share, learn, experience and grow with others.
