About Dr. Rebecca

Thank you for visiting my website. It is a privilege to offer you information developed through years of integrating many disciplines and approaches in healthcare. I hope that this information will help you to find your way to excellent health. Let me tell you a little about my background and why I chose to develop this website.

After graduating from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto in 1988, I worked in private practice and taught in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Manitoba. In 1991 I moved to California and taught in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) before moving to Los Angeles and working in private practice. 

Education has been my passion and I believe that improving the integration of knowledge in medicine is essential to improving healthcare overall. Since 1993, I have worked to improve medical education by developing integrated educational programs. Initially, my focus was to bring together specialties within Western Allopathic Medicine. With time and experience, I realized that any comprehensive understanding of health required the full integration of all types of healing modalities and so I started studying Integrative Medicine and Functional Medicine. 

Furthermore, I have come to believe that individual personal health does not exist in a vacuum, but rather, is best understood as a complex relationship between ourselves, our families, our communities and the world as a whole. For example, the way our food is grown and the way products we use are manufactured all play a role in our personal health as well as the health of our communities and the health of the planet. 

My goal in developing Dr. Rebecca's Healthy Planet is to provide you with valuable information that integrates these many different areas that might impact your health. I hope that you enjoy the website and that you find the articles to be both informative and helpful. 

Yours Sincerely,

Rebecca A. Malamed M.D.
