Dr. Frank Lipman is a top pioneer and internationally recognized expert in the fields of Integrative and Functional Medicine. Focused on sustainable health and wellness rather than quick fixes, he offers patients a customized blend of Western Medicine with acupuncture, nutritional counseling, vitamins and herbs, relaxation techniques, physical therapy and bodywork. As O, The Oprah Magazine put it, Dr. Lipman has developed an “extraordinary practice at the vanguard of a revolutionary way to deliver medical care.”
Dr. Lipman’s interest in integrative medicine began more than three decades ago, while working as a doctor in his native South Africa. In 1984, he moved to the United States and became board certified in internal medicine after serving as Chief Medical Resident in his final year of residency at Lincoln Hospital in New York City. Becoming increasingly aware of both the strengths and weaknesses of his training, he started studying age-old healing techniques and integrating them with his science-based modern medical training. He began to see that the polarization between western modalities and other healing philosophies merely negated positive attributes of both. He saw that true healing lay in a blend between the two. He now practices his unique blend of what he calls “Good Medicine,’ which combines all the systems in which he has trained.
In 1992 Dr. Lipman founded his practice, Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, which quickly gained a loyal following. Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, based in New York City’s Flatiron district, attracts high profile patients including Donna Karan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, and Maggie Gyllenhaal, to name a few.
Dr. Lipman’s essential principle is basic, and for most patients, life changing: to restore internal balance, empowering them to handle the stresses of modern life. His approach is based on the science of epigenetics, which teaches us that our genes are not set in stone and we can change how they are expressed by the lifestyle choices we make. Experienced in creating unique innovative treatment regimens to get his patient’s natural rhythms back in sync, he developed Be Well by Dr. Frank Lipman in 2010, a line of leading-edge health programs and supplements that recalibrate the body with healthy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. The line is available at www.BeWellByDrFrankLipman.com.
Dr. Lipman will introduce his third book in January 2015, The New Health Rules, which is a new kind of health book—combining lush imagery with life-changing tips to improve every aspect of body, mind and soul. He is also the author of Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Start Living Again and Total Renewal: Seven Key Steps to Resilience, Vitality, and Long-Term Health, which outline his approach to wellness. A leading international speaker on health and wellness, he is a regular contributor to GOOP and The Huffington Post, and also creates a daily blog and weekly newsletter for his own site, www.drfranklipman.com.
