Dr. Nicole Rivera is unlike most doctors out there.
Instead of taking one course and broadly applying it to her patients, she continues to learn and get certified in many different disciplines so she can combine a bit of each to help her patients heal.
So she takes an integrative approach that really makes her stand out as a functional medicine practitioner.
As Dr. Rivera shares with Dr. Anthony Gustin in this episode, she faced her own health struggles that most doctors failed to help her solve.
In doing that herself, she realized that she could offer the same type of healing to her patients.
When you tune in, you’ll discover the elaborate testing she does with her patients, why she does this, and how she takes an integrative approach to health.
You’ll also learn more about common therapies that didn’t work for her despite their claims that they’re incredibly effective.
Dr. Rivera also shares alternative therapies and why these may or may not be helpful for patients.
If you don’t know Dr. Nicole Rivera, she’s a leading expert in integrative medicine.
She received a doctorate in chiropractic, a bachelor’s degree in psychology pre-medicine, and she’s graduated from the Klinghardt Academy and the Kresser Institute.
Dr. Rivera is also an active member of the Institute of Functional Medicine and the Academy for Comprehensive Integrative Medicine and she’s the best selling cookbook author of Eat for Your Gut.
She founded the Integrative Wellness Group and the Institute for Integrative Wellness which the former specializes in functional medicine and integrative medicine and the latter teaches other practitioners how to do this too.
Since founding the Integrative Wellness Group, she now specializes in gastrointestinal issues, autoimmunity, lyme literate, hormone, thyroid, and endocrine disorders, as well as mold toxicity, and safe detoxification methods.
