Our guest today says, "I work with people as a physician and a coach to not only evaluate their condition with a goal to treat but also help them adopt the necessary lifestyle changes to sustain healing and prevent the future disease from occurring”. Our guest is Dr. Riva Robinson a part of a new breed of practitioners offering Functional Medicine care. She goes on to explain,”…which means I use a root-cause,whole-systems based approach to helping people”.Dr.Riva is an allopathically trained MD who has added the Functional Medicine modality to her toolkit. She continues, “ I love what I do because it is truly an extension of who I am. When I was in medical school and residency, I never felt like I belonged because our reactive health care model just did not appeal to me…now I get to help people much the way that I work to keep myself healthy. I’ve learned so much along my own health and wellness journey, and I love bringing all of that to my clients.”
