Bypass Surgery Turned Doctor from Couch Potato into Mountain Climber

Until 2009, I was just an experienced physician, a couch potato, and a pampered consumer who feasted over the best foods without worrying about unhealthy consequences, because like many, I believed that, "Heart disease won't happen to me."

In August 2009, at the age of 61, open-heart surgery knocked at my door and my world came crumbling down.

Fortunately for me determination ran deep in my veins, so I decided to completely change my life.

So, I reincarnated into a new life to stay true to the meaning of my first name, Akil−the "wise."

“A year after my bypass surgery, I undertook a mountaineering trek to Mount Kailash (altitudes of 19,000 feet) in Tibet. In October 2011, I ran my first full marathon (26.2 miles or 49.19 kilometers), the Chicago Marathon, and in September 2012, I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.”

Over the last decade, I have overcome acute and chronic medical ailments to indulge in century cycling, triathloning, skydiving, hang gliding, scuba diving, and white water rafting.

This was possible because I changed my lifestyle to incorporate healthy eating habits, an exercise regimen, and regular practice of yoga and meditation.


CEO, V.Lynn Hawkins helps heart-centered, purpose-driven entrepreneurs create & rapidly grow successful businesses & positively impact the world.

We focus our digital promotional marketing business solely on Healthpreneurs and those who are focused on wellness; people, plants, and the planet. I also find that most Healthpreneurs are seeking an understanding about how to leverage their expertise, grow their practices and increase their business and personal wealth. I finally knew, I was fully in my zone of genius and the world opened up.

Today, the P3 Academy of Business Development and Digital Promotional Marketing for Healthpreneurs has expanded into Healthpreneur Dynamics. Not only do we help with digital social and email marketing and promotional campaign marketing, through Healthpreneur Dynamics, we run Digital Giveaway Events each quarter and a Virtual WHOLE HEALTH SUMMIT twice a year.

Our aim is to see HEALTHPRENEURS UNITE to further the cause and the message of "Using Lifestyle and Food As Medicine!"
