Passionate about Integrative Medicine

For the last 30 years, Robban Sica, MD has been passionate about Integrative Medicine, which is the synthesis of the best of conventional and alternative therapies, building a sustainable, patient-centered healthcare system focused on prevention and positive treatment outcomes.

Since 1985, Dr. Robban Sica has been practicing integrative medicine with extensive training and experience in bio-identical hormone balancing, endocrine problems, environmental medicine, chelation/detoxification and IV therapies, nutrition, mind-body medicine, and many natural and alternative methods of testing and treatment.

She developed Holos Health Center in 1986, followed by the Center for the Healing Arts in 1992, both multi-disciplinary healing centers. Dr. Sica’s practice has been based in the belief that health depends on the interplay of who we are and what we eat, drink, breathe, think and feel, including both physical and spiritual. Increasing our awareness and choices about our health allows us to find a path to healing and growth.  Active support, education, and empowerment foster the healing environment and assist our patients in moving forward on their journey towards a state of optimal wellness.

By getting to the underlying causes and contributing factors, the goal is to restore health, not just palliate disease. This approach is successful in improving many chronic health problems by, first, determining the underlying factors deficiencies are lowering the person’s overall reserves and what stressors are overwhelming those reserves, leading to illness, and, second, by utilizing natural therapies in an integrative fashion to create an individualized treatment plan.

Growing a successful practice and helping her patients was only part of Dr. Sica’s mission, however.

Raising awareness about alternatives to conventional disease oriented treatments of drugs and surgery has long been her passion, along with the desire to further cooperation and advancement of the integrative medicine and natural health community. This has prompted Dr. Sica to volunteer countless hours of time to a number of integrative, natural health organizations.

For years of promoting natural health organizations at the local level. Then, in 1998, Dr. Sica was elected to the board of American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM, then the largest integrative medicine association for physicians. She subsequently served as a director and office for the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology ( ), formerly the American Board of Chelation Therapy.

Since that time she has served for many years on the board of the International College of Integrative Medicine, also serving as president from 2008 to 2012, International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM  During that time, she also represented ICIM to the Integrative Medicine Consortium ( a collaborating group of national physician organizations dedicated to promoting Integrative Medicine as the standard of care in medicine. Because of her experiences on the ABCMT board, she was aware the need for credible board certification for Integrative Medicine.  She helped to create a board certification committee for the IMC which she chaired from 2008 to 2011. During that period of time, she also received her board certification from the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine ( ) who has continued to improve the goals of board certification.  In 2014, Dr. Robban Sica was elected as vice-chair of the Integrative Medicine Consortium to continue her efforts to bring greater awareness and access to Integrative Medicine.

Faced with challenges to her medical license for daring to provide alternative and innovative treatments such as chelation therapy, Dr. Robban Sica became a tireless advocate for health freedom.  Her story has been published in two libertarian books about freedom: Why Liberty and Why Peace, edited by Marc Guttman, MD.
