With the beginning of the 21st century, medicine has seen the expansion of clinical interventions that could not have been predicted. Physicians trained in allopathic medicine embrace integrative medicine, prospective medicine, holistic medicine, and various permutations on comprehensive medicine. Recommendation for promoting wellness is often ignored. Wellness prescription complements every physician's practice irrespective of specialty. It requires physician to incorporate wellness strategy as a primary intervention. A prescription for wellness should include promotion of physical activity, healthy nutrition practices, management of stress, enhancements of individual relationships and recognizing awareness between mind, body, and spiritual components.
