End of an Era,

Dear Patients,
The time has come for me to hang up my Westside Natural Health Clinic shingle. The clinic building has been sold. As of June 21 I will no longer see patients in the sturdy little brick farmhouse that has served us all so well these 34 years. 
The practice of medicine is a humbling art. It has been an honor to serve you. With deep gratitude and sincere wishes for your health and happiness -
All good medicine,
PS - I could not retire without leaving you a guide to help you maintain your health. The 12 Elixirs is that guide - use it in good health! (Available through Amazon)
We are working out the details on how to continue to be of service to all of you.  Dr. R. will continue seeing patients in Ely.  She will also be available for Facetime, Skype, or phone consults. Dr.R. will see patients that she scheduled past the June 21 date. We will contact you with location particulars.
She is recommending that patients see Dr. Tricia Hadley for any continuing health concerns.  Dr. Hadley is at Coria Natural Health Clinic in Minnetonka.  She can be reached at 952-446-7177. Claire will continue to be available through Dr.Hadley's clinic, also.
I will still be available via email and phone for supplement orders, follow up questions, etc.  If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
It has been a pleasure to be the voice of Westside Clinic, and Dr. R.’s assistant for the past 7 years.  We hope we have impacted your life as much as you have impacted ours.
-Hannah and Amelia

"My mind is blown! Well written and intriguing. The health book everyone needs to read."   Angela,  5 star Amazon review


"This book is just wonderful."    JS

"The 12 Elixirs is a unique and inspiring owner's manual of natural care for our greatest treasure to us, our bodies. Dr. Riabokin, a holistic doctor of chiropractic medicine with over thirty years of helping people heal and stay well, has given us a tremendous gift to our health and our lives. Rather than a book of disease symptoms and prescriptions, it is a celebration of the harmonious workings of the human body as they were created to be.
Dr. Riabokin shares her compilation of wisdom for wellness for which she humbly credits her teachers and mentors along with the legacy of traditional medicine handed down for generations. With gentle humor, she instructs and encourages readers to drop the bad habits and misconceptions that are now so accepted in our culture, even amongst the medical establishment, and listen to our bodies in order to decipher what they are saying to us.  She covers seemingly harmless nuisances to serious debilitating problems, reminding us that, left unattended to, the former can become the latter. Chapters on each stage of life from birth to death highlight common concerns, misunderstandings, and diseases, which Dr. Riabokin explains with a clear knowledge, offering practical remedies which are within our scope to apply. The unifying theme of her book, the twelve elixers, are the basic aspects we all require for our optimum health (e.g., breathing, water, food, sleep, movement, etc.), and she tells us how to practice them properly so that they can function marvelously as they should. Scattered throughout are intriguing case studies and her charming illustrations. Amidst the uproar over national health insurance and ever-rising cost of health care and numbers of those in need of it, Dr. Riabokin’s professional advice is plain: Respect the beautiful harmony of bodies and honor inherent powers for healing and we will have a long life of well-being that is our birthright."    Rev. Sue Whiteman, Faith in Books review



At Westside, we believe  in  a natural approach to health maintenance, disease prevention, and the treatment of disease. 

The body is designed to heal itself, PROVIDED its functions are not interfered with, and it is given what it needs to do the job. Reaching optimal health is possible. Achieving optimal health with due respect to each individual's circumstances and with respect to the short and long term effects of our actions upon ourselves, our children, and our planet, is our goal.

Westside has served its patients as a wholistic health clinic since 1983. The following are some of the services we offer. 


Applied Kinesiology    



Functional Medicine  

Herbal Medicines 



Whole Food Supplements

Self Help Coaching

Food Preparation


Education is key for the prevention and treatment of injury and disease. Click on 'Seminars' to view some of the class and retreat topics available.

Consider the following:

The lives of long lived people of our age are characterized by the following:

- they take few or no pharmaceutical drugs

- they eat moderately

- they live a physically active life

- they have strong social connections

- they eat real food (few or no snack/junk foods)

- they were breast fed as infants 

- they are physically fit with good posture

One should also note that our current centenarians were born and spent their first years in a world where (with few exceptions) the air, water and earth were far less polluted. The soil was more fertile  - imparting more nutrition into the food grown on it. They physically worked much harder but they also spent more time playing and ate a much more varied diet!

When redesigning your life to be healthier please consider :

In other words, one's life should be in balance with the geography and climate wherein one lives. The food and medicines, ideally, are those of one's ancestors and should be combined with local indigenous foods and medicines.  Finally, the lifestyle should be appropriate to one's age and gender. (Women, men,  infants,  prepubescent children, adolescents,  young adults, menstruating - pregnant -and nursing women,  middle aged adults, old folks etc. each have different requirements under which they  flourish best.)

In making changes always be sure to first get the basics down:

1. Fresh air

2. Pure water

3.  Quality food

4.  Daily exercise   

5.  A life of purpose
