what is traditional Chinese medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been around for thousands of years. TCM successfully assesses the balance of energy in the body and mind, providing valuable information and a treatment path to correct underlying causes of symptoms and diseases. TCM uses Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, meditation, and a variety of other methods to treat and prevent illness. TCM uses and stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism to treat symptoms. TCM finds its roots in ancient Chinese philosophies that, in the simplest of terms, teaches people to live life in balance and harmony with nature.

Chinese herbal medicine comprises thousands of medicinal substances, primarily plant based, but some of which are animal or mineral based. Chinese herbal medicine uses the entire plant – seeds to leaves – in different combinations. These herbs are given as teas, capsules, topical solutions, extracts, powders and other formulations and have a proven track-record of safety and efficacy.

Acupuncture

A key component of TCM, acupuncture is a powerful tool to balance energy to correct symptoms and treat chronic conditions such as pain, addiction, allergies, insomnia and much more. Acupuncture uses extremely thin needles to painlessly stimulate strategic points on your body that affect your body’s energy and balance your natural defenses and blood flow.

IV Nutrition Therapy

Often, oral supplements (and even nutrition from food) simply cannot reach the target destinations in your body — your cells. Intravenous nutrition therapy is the best alternative to ensuring that your nutritional supplements do reach their intended targets. IV Nutrition Therapy can help people with chronic stress, cancer, colitis, IBS, and a host of other problems that stem from or are aggravated by a lack of good nutrition. IV nutrition has also been shown in studies to reduce post-operative complications by up to 50%.

Thermography

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (a.k.a. Thermography) screens the body for temperature changes on the skin and is FDA-approved as an adjunct for the early detection of breast cancer, and has been a tool of medicine for the past 70 years.  While mammography remains the gold standard, thermograms can detect abnormal tissue due to temperature changes. Thermography can detect these changes before the cancer develops! Thermography is most commonly used on the breasts for detecting abnormalities but can be used on the head, neck and torso to detect other early indications of risk of disease.

Transcendental Meditation

Want to get rid of that “brain fog,” increase your immune defenses, reduce blood pressure, or decrease anxiety or depression? Then allow Dr. Riobe to guide you through meditative techniques that have been shown in studies to be effective. Many chronic illnesses result from or are aggravated by stress and anxiety, which can be alleviated through meditation. Decreased memory and focus can also be relieved by meditation.

Personalized Nutrition Services

You are what you eat — You’ve heard that since you were a toddler! Today, we have hectic lifestyles that lead us to fast food, processed foods, and poor eating habits. Most of us don’t get the bare minimum that even the FDA recommends. Many of us are developing allergies or sensitivities to certain foods such as wheat and dairy and don’t even know it. These modern-day hurdles require us to be more cognizant of what we (and our children) are putting in our bodies. The Riobe Institute can escort you through the chaos of nutrition.

Cellular Based Testing

Your body functions from the level of its cells. This is why blood work is typically normal despite the presence of sometimes debilitating symptoms. Recent technological developments make it possible to drill down to the level of your cells to determine many parameters not available through blood work. Dr. Riobe is specifically trained to interpret cellular based cutting-edge testing to help determine the causes of symptoms and conditions. Using urine, saliva, blood cells, and stool samples, cellular testing can show cellular metabolic disturbances, immune system dysfunction, cellular damage, nutrient deficits and much more that blood work and conventional testing simply can’t see.

Weight Loss Program

Many of us go through life dieting to try to lose those “love handles”, that “beer gut” or the bloated feeling and look we have. Diagnosing the real cause of weight gain is the key to losing weight. Without understanding the root cause of your failure to lose weight, despite constant efforts, you won’t successfully lose it. The Riobe Institute will put you on a personalize nutrition plan that also uses acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, detoxification, and even meditation to steer you to permanent weight loss.

Cancer Risk Reduction

Do you know your personal risk of cancer? The Riobe Institute can help you understand your personal risk and design a personalized risk-reduction strategy. Everything from nutrition to toxins to anxiety affects your likelihood of developing cancer. Dr. Riobe expertly leads her patients to a lifestyle based in naturally restoring balance in mind, body and spirit, that helps reduce the risk of cancer.

Pre-conception evaluation and health optimization

If you’re considering starting a family (or continuing to expand your family), then maybe it’s time to consult with someone who can help protect your baby before he or she is even conceived. Fetal health depends on the health of the mother, even before conception. Dr. Riobe is adept at determining what moms need for optimal health at the time of conception and throughout pregnancy to provide their children with the best start at life.

Detoxification Program

We live in a world full of toxins – from the air we breathe to the foods we ingest – everything is affected. Studies have shown that we are impacted by up to 200 cancer-causing toxins daily. Those toxins take a toll on our bodies and our emotional health. Learn how to properly detoxify your body and greatly reduce risks of cancer, immune diseases, and other ailments. Detoxification can be tricky, and if improperly done, can backfire. The Riobe Institute can guide you with expert advice, support and caring.

Gynecological Problem Evaluation

Patients suffering from abnormal or painful menstruation, vaginal discharge, breast and/or nipple discharge, breast masses or pain, or vaginal itching could benefit from this evaluation. The evaluation targets the affected areas with appropriate analysis and testing, and can be combined with integrative techniques for successful resolution.

Sports Optimization Program

Athletes subject their bodies to considerable stress. The Riobe Method can help you optimize your sports performance whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete! Injuries can be considerable setbacks. This evaluation can help you recover from the stresses of sports and help prevent injuries. If you’re already nursing an injury or in need of surgery, the Riobe Method can assist in surgical preparation and recovery.

Testimonials

  • “When I came to Dr. Riobe, I was experiencing severe hot flashes which interfered with my sleeping.  I felt lethargic and was overweight.  Through her patience and medical tests, we have found the problems and solutions.  Throughout the year, we have leveled my hormones, treated the thyroid; my fatigue and hot flashes are no longer an issue.  My constant battle with weight loss is finally showing success!  Dr. Riobe’s supplements are making my life so much more enjoyable!”

    Linda Gibson, Florida,
  • “Before I went to Dr Riobe, I felt an incredible amount of stress, was unable to sleep at night, often waking at 3:00 am and not being able to return to sleep.  I am now able to sleep through the night, waking up refreshed with energy and ready to face my problems, tasks, workload, etc.   My libido has returned and I do not have hot flashes or panic attacks.  Before seeing Dr. Riobe, I was extremely tired, irritable and my self image did suffer.  I now have energy, feel more pleasant and to not feel overwhelmed with life’s problems.”

    Mary S. Casteel, Florida,
  • “The quality of my life has improved due to overall improvement in my energy level.  Higher energy levels remove irritability from ruining your interaction with others… especially my husband.  He’s really glad I found Dr. Riobe.  I used to wake up as tired as I was when I went to sleep.  Now I awake refreshed and able to go through my day with no fatigue which also allows for a better night’s rest since I don’t need coffee to get me through the day.”

    Christina Mitchell, Florida,
  • “Besides the increased energy, libido, weight loss, I am sleeping better and have improved skin health.  Dr. Riobe’s suggestions and treatment have allowed me to live a happier life spiritually and physically.  Since taking the Bio-identical treatment, the night sweats have stopped.  I rest 7-8 hours per night, compared to my previous 4-5 hours.  Once I started the supplements Dr. Riobe recommended, the cortisol levels have reduced and weight loss started immediately.  Losing a few pounds gave me a personal boost which caused the chain reaction to want to continue.”
