Rebecca talks with Dr. Barry Rose about how her compassionate and integrated healthcare interest stems from being a professionally trained dancer which led her to the physiology of the human body. As a youngster, Rebecca would accompany her chemist father to work and saw how overmedicated some of his customers were with several and sometimes dozens of prescriptions. She realized “how overmedicated our society is and that there had to be other options out there,” leading her to Chinese medicine and eventually treating patients as a licensed acupuncturist. Rebecca explains how the Kiiko Matsumoto style acupuncture helps her patients. She takes a hands-on-approach, alleviating chronic pain, is a specialist in autoimmune disease–rheumatoid arthritis and is often referred to as a ‘healthcare detective’–treating the whole person not just symptoms. An inspirational conversation about how we all can take a more broader view of our own personal healthcare beyond traditional western medicine.
