Kathleen Hopkins, DO Related seminars and products

Kathleen G Hopkins DO, IFMCP, AIHM Fellow, is a board certified family physician whose passion for Integrative Medicine began over 20 years ago while doing fieldwork in Ayurvedic Medicine. It was through combining the philosophies of Ayurveda with the practice of family medicine that she had watched growing up as the daughter of a small town Iowa doctor, that she was able to resolve her own chronic GI, pain and skin issues that she had experienced since childhood. She has found that Functional Medicine training has allowed her to combine her love of the patient’s narrative as well as the evaluation of the microbiome, genetic makeup, metabolics, movement, sleep, nutrition, relationships and sense of purpose. She believes that health is a dynamic balance and that medicine should be patient centered versus disease centered

Doctor Heidi Robertson’s love for helping started in high school after participating in a mission trip. Dr. Robertson began her medical training in southern California where she graduated with her medical degree at Loma Linda Medical University in 2002. She trained at the renowned Loma Linda Medical Center for Anesthesiology, graduating in 2007 and was board certified in 2008. In 2012 Dr. Robertson began to feel a pull toward regenerative medicine. She realized the hope that could bring many patients by using prolotherapy and other forms of regenerative medicine. Doctor Robertson has always believed that bringing hope and healing to patients, is one of the greatest privileges she can have in this life. Watching patients with chronic pain even after many surgeries prompted her to research the possibilities of reversing or curing such pain. She completed the extensive Hackett-Hemwall training for prolotherapy in Honduras and eventually became a teacher to others. She also completed the IOF/Regenexx training for musckuloskeletal injections of stem cells and PRP in 2017. Dr. Robertson owns her own clinic in Edina Minnesota called Rejuv Medical.
