Jeff welcomes to the podcast Dr. Darin Davidson – an orthopedic surgeon and health & wellness consultant.
Darin argues that we can and should be doing a much better job of practicing holistic wellness in our careers and in our lives. That means integrating the complementary areas of psychology, nutrition, sleep, and more to help better develop our overall health and wellness (for ourselves and our patients). By improving our overall performance as surgeons, we can improve the care we provide to patients and decrease our chances of burnout.
We all want to provide the best possible care to our patients. In order to do that, we need to be performing at our best day after day. This can be difficult due to the demands of being a surgeon. These holistic methods can help keep us practicing at our best.
What steps does Darin suggest we do to practice holistic wellness?
- Step 1 – Get in touch with your passion and purpose. This can serve as a guiding light in your day-to-day life as a surgeon.
- Step 2 – Remember what drew you to the medical profession in the first place. This can help you rediscover your purpose and reignite your passion.
- Step 3 – Start integrating holistic wellness practices into your daily life.
Most importantly, PRACTICE something holistic to practice your best!

Darin’s mission is to improve the health and wellness of everyone through the integration of holistic principles within the traditional medical model. By combining the best available knowledge and evidence from all fields which contribute to human performance and wellness, such as medicine, psychology, sleep, nutrition, and exercise we can obtain the greatest level of wellbeing. For the greatest impact, these skills should be developed as early as possible so that they can be available when needed most.
