Resolutions: Dr. Lisa Lichtig’s advice is to courageously and honestly get to know yourself

Dr. Lisa Lichtig

Dr. Lisa Lichtig of Family to Family takes an integrative approach to medicine that’s based on the interconnectedness of mind, body and spirit. Lichtig is co-owner of the holistic medical practice, which was established in Asheville in 1999.

“You might call it a ketogenic diet, but that’s such a catchphrase,” she says. “I really like to focus on healthy fats and colorful vegetables, as well as limiting my consumption of food to certain hours of the day.” In the new year, Lichtig says she’s resolved to go to bed earlier. “The body’s systems can’t function without rest and good sleep,” she explains.

And the one piece of advice she’d like to share with the world about how to have a happier and healthier new year? “Really get to know yourself — honestly and with an attitude of love and kindness toward yourself,” she counsels. “Starting there will have a helpful impact on the world.”
