Frank Lipman, MD, is the holistic physician of whom O The Oprah Magazine said is "at the vanguard of a revolutionary new way to deliver health care." He is the founder and director of the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City, where for 20 years his personal blend of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine, Functional Medicine, nutrition, herbal medicine, biofeedback, meditation, and yoga have helped thousands of people recover their energy and zest for life.
In 1979 after finishing medical school at the University of Witwaterstrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dr. Lipman began his medical career at Baragwaneth Hospital in Soweto, the largest and busiest hospital in all of Africa. It was at this hospital where he discovered the possibilities of non-Western medicine. In 1984, he emigrated to the U.S., became board-certified in internal medicine, and served as Chief Medical Resident at Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx. Dr. Lipman spent time in the hospital's acupuncture clinic, which gave him a comprehensive background in Chinese medicine and inspired him to embark on many years' study of nutrition, homeopathy, qi gong, and other healing systems.
