Description

Robert Tristan Helmer RTCMP, R.Ac specializes in the treatment of chronic, difficult to treat medical conditions that other doctors and alternative medicine providers are unable to help.

His primary form of treatment to achieve this is customized Chinese herbal medicine formulas and acupuncture protocols. 

Rob’s recent research and subsequent published articles have focused on the area of insomnia due to the increase in mental-emotional health problems since the beginning of the pandemic.

Rob brings 25 years of clinical and instructional experience to the Lakeside Health team.
