A Progressive Medical Doctor’s path to prevention that avoids the perils of modern day chronic diseases

August 26, 2016
00:0000:00


Dr. Mylaine Riobe, a Board-Certified Medical Doctor and specialist in traditional Chinese medicine and Integrative medicine of the Riobe Institute of Integrative Medicine in Stuart, Florida joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Mylaine Riobe discuss the following:

  • What is The Tao of Integrative Medicine about?
  • Why is The Tao of Integrative Medicine relevant?
  • What is Integrative Medicine according to the Riobe Institute of Integrative Medicine?
  • Why is TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) so important in Integrative Medicine?
  • How does this relate to the cancer moonshot?


Duration: 11:37


Did you know that for the first time in 200 years, our children are not expected to live as long as we do?


The reason for this is that our American medical system is based on the prevention of death rather than prevention of disease. 50% of Americans have life- shortening diseases by age 18.


Did you know that rates of cancer are expected to rise 42% by 2025? We spend more than the entire continent of Europe on cancer care and have over 700,000 more deaths per year than they do! Almost every American is touched by the epidemic of cancer.


The reason for this is that our American medical system is based on the prevention of death from cancer rather than prevention of cancer.


Dr. Riobe proves why early diagnosis of diseases such as cancer to prevent death is no longer acceptable. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Riobe has developed a ground-breaking integrative fusion technique that provides a dynamic approach that is effective, safe and prevents and treats diseases including cancer, by addressing their root causes.


Dr. Riobe's undergraduate studies were completed at Columbia University/Columbia College in NYC where she grew up. She obtained her medical degree at NY Medical College and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Medical College of Pennsylvania and the University of South Carolina. There she learned conventional medical practices that she used for four years following her graduation and board certification in OB/GYN. During this time, she grew frustrated with the cookie-cutter medicine that she learned. Although this form of medicine serves its purpose for acute, life-threatening conditions, she felt that her patients who suffered from chronic conditions such as fatigue, poor sleep, low sex drive, and overweight were often frustrated and incompletely treated.


Her close relationship with her grandmother, who introduced her to holistic healing methods as a child, planted her passion to treat her clients as a whole.


She set out to learn methods that evaluate and treat root causes rather than mask symptoms. This calling led her to study traditional Chinese medicine and integrative medicine over the following 8 years. She completed her studies at The Academy of Pain Research, a University of California, Irvine-affiliated institution; The University of Miami, and The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.


She incorporates these disciplines into her practice to provide an integrative, customized approach combining leading-edge modern medical testing and technology with time-tested energy-based methods of traditional Chinese medicine.


In her upcoming books, The Tao of Integrative Medicine and The Answer to Cancer, she makes sense out to the chaos that is our current health crisis and sets a path to prevention of diseases such as cancer as practiced at The Riobe Institute. The Riobe Methods also provides effective treatment of chronic symptoms and conditions after they take hold.


She enjoys practicing what she preaches by living an active life of healthy eating, balanced lifestyle and exercise. As a woman and a mom, she knows first hand how we can all be consumed by a hectic lifestyle. That’s when it’s more important than ever to get on the path to prevention by obtaining your Annual Integrative Check-up.

Expert physician creates the new Pregnancy Power App – Pregnancy Power

August 22, 2016
00:0000:00


Dr. James Betoni, board certified high risk maternal fetal medicine doctor and Founder/Creator of the new app, Pregnancy Power, from Boise, Idaho joins eHealth Radio and the Female Health and Pregnancy Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. James Betoni discuss the following:

  • Tell us a bit more about yourself and your credentials for starters.
  • Why did you decide to create the Pregnancy Power App?  
  • How is it different than any other pregnancy app that is out there?
  • Did you develop this app to replace your published workbook due to the change in times and people using apps?
  • What are your goals for this new app?


Duration: 7:44


Dr. Jim’s journey towards writing The Pregnancy Power Workbook began in 1967 when his mother gave birth to his little sister; who was born with Down syndrome. In an era when children with her condition were put into homes for special needs, his parents lovingly chose to parent and raise her in their home. As the five-year old big brother, young Jim soon became the family expert on chromosomes and learned that his sister had an extra one. His first hand experiences of living with and caring for his sister who suffered through many health conditions, played a major role in inspiring him to pursue a career in health care.


Through 20 years of refining his skills as an OB/GYN physician, he has come to recognize the vulnerability that many women experience during their pregnancies because of their lack of knowledge. Our medical system does not consistently allow adequate time for determining patients’ levels of understanding. As the co-author of The Pregnancy Power Workbook, he feels privileged to help create a meaningful pregnancy guide that changes the way women and their providers approach prenatal care. Rather than being thrown into a system that does not support their needs, women using this workbook will experience the reassuring and motivating power gleaned from real knowledge.


45 years after learning about his sister’s extra chromosome, Dr. Jim realized his dream. In 2010 he completed his fellowship subspecialty training in Maternal Fetal Medicine. “Now I can better care for women with high-risk pregnancies, including those carrying a baby with Down syndrome, with compassion built from many years of personal experience.”


Dr. Jim enjoys his new practice with the University Perinatology Consultants in Colorado Springs where he lives with his wife, three active children, his mother, and his sister. When time allows, they all enjoy theater, dining, and traveling.
