In the 19th Century, a famous poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote in one of his works that our “first wealth is health”, which probably the start of the phrase that we often use these days: “Health is wealth”. Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care specialty that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health. It employs therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ natural self-healing process.
In this week’s edition of Top Career 100 interview episode, we are once again graced by an expert in the field of health science. Let’s meet Dr. Beverly Yates, a licensed doctor of naturopathic medicine who has practiced for over 20 years. With her over two decades of professional practice, she founded what’s considered as the first-ever Integrative and Naturopathic Medicine Residency fully accredited in the state of California.
Dr. Yates is an electrical engineer and an alumna of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She has appeared on all the major broadcast TV networks and in syndicated national TV programs as an expert in holistic and natural medicine.
