  1. Realize that you are in charge of your own health and healthcare decisions.
  2. Know and own your personal health data.
  3. Find a physician that will know you, be accessible to you and will proactively partner with you around your health and health goals.
  4. Embrace monitoring, testing, and improving your biology.
  5. Restructure your health insurance and major medical risk.
