Dr. Lippman first studied conventional medicine. She received her MD in 1973 from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. After a pediatric internship at LA County-USC Medical Center, she studied Adult and Child Psychiatry at UCLA and was Board Certified in each specialty.
Soon after, she became dissatisfied with the limitations of a purely psychiatric focus. She changed her practice from psychiatry to alternative medicine in Los Angeles in order to address the whole individual. That was 30 years ago.
Dr. Lippman is referred to as a medical resource in books authored by Suzanne Somers: Ageless, Breakthrough, and Knockout. She is also a medical resource in Jenny McCarthy’s book, Mother Warriors, and on McCarthy’s Generation Rescue website as well. Dr. Lippman is also a regular guest on TV and radio shows.
Your health: A partnership
“Since most people don’t get sick overnight, it’s not likely they will heal overnight, either,” Dr. Lippman explains.
“I don’t want people to think Environmental and Preventive medicine is a magic bullet. It’s not. It takes time to work out the best treatments. It’s a process that requires a commitment from the patient.” Dr. Lippman’s patients should continue working with their primary doctor, too. A medical doctor herself, she believes that homeopathic treatments and natural alternative medicine can be blended with traditional medical care.
“I provide services that build a person’s health and well-being.”
“By coming to see me you will learn …
What agrees or disagrees with you
What supports your body needs to become well
What supports your body needs to reduce or eliminate symptoms
“You will also receive an overview and perspective that will assist you in having an abundance of health and wellness. We’ll also find areas of ‘red flags’ that could reduce your health in the future.”
The short term benefit of working with Dr. Cathie Lippman is a reduction of complaints; the mid-term benefit is feeling better and stronger; and the long-term benefit is reduced risk for major health concerns in the future.

Her pediatrician had her on antibiotics almost all of the time and she still missed a great deal of school and playtime with friends. Dr. Lippman prescribed such things as dietary changes, nutritional supplements, herbs and homeopathics. My daughter began to have fewer infections and her allergies decreased dramatically. Today she is a strong and healthy teenager due in large part to Dr. Lippman’s help.” –Lisa S.
