Every Monday, Lydia Proschinger will be talking about health, or inviting a special guest to present himself and his expert insights into all things pertaining to Living La Vida Healthy. April 26, 2010 special guest is Dr. Stefan Ripich. Dr. Ripich started his career with dual degrees from Case Western University as a Nurse Practitioner and a Clinical Specialist in Mental Health Nursing. He was only one of 40 people in the entire country to achieve both certifications, thereby successfully combining treatment of both the mind and the body to achieve a more holistic model. In addition to holding clinical faculty positions at three universities, Dr. Ripich spent the next ten years practicing at the Palo Alto Veteran’s Medical Center, where he also established the first V.A. holistic clinic, called Point of Balance. Doctors at the Center urged him to go to medical school, but decided to go the naturopathic route, as it emphasizes on helping patients stimulate the body’s inherent ability to heal and repair itself. Dr. Ripich emphasizes prevention and lifestyle education as the cornerstones of true wellness, and always tries to uncover the underlying cause of health problems, rather than simply applying a “band aid” to symptoms. Such a philosophy is perfect for the treatment of diabetes, so responsive to diet and lifestyle modification. A sought-after lecturer and practitioner in the Santa Fe area because of his successful diabetes program, Dr. Ripich founded The One Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2006.
