January 5 Minute Spotlight – Homeopathy First

As a young gymnast I looked to alternative medicine for my injuries. I was drawn toward the healing arts, but was not convinced that western medicine was the best or the only way. I considered Chiropractic College, but chose PA school for the flexibility it allowed. My first job was in Three Rivers, CA with the late Dr. A.J. Rice. He was my mentor in Homeopathy and I was extremely fortunate to have had hands on training from him while also attending Homeopathy School of Colorado (now Homeopathy School International) for a 500 hour certification.

While I have been practicing as an allopathic provider for many years now, I prefer to use homeopathic treatment. I find homeopathy to be a safer and gentler option than western medicine. Homeopathy can lead to better and longer lasting results with less side effects. When treating my own friends and family I always choose homeopathy first, which led to the name of my practice. I believe that western medicine has it's place, but it should be what is used as a last resort for chronic conditions.

November Luncheon Speaker Vic Lombardi

Born on Denver’s North Side in 1969, Lombardi interned at CBS4 as a student and later joined CBS4 in June of 1998. He graduated from Holy Family High School in Denver, attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated from Notre Dame University in 1991.

Before landing a job in his hometown, Lombardi worked as a sports reporter in South Bend, Indiana, Austin, Texas, and Phoenix, Ariz. Already, he is a 27-time Emmy Award winner; 13 of which are for Best Sports Anchor, which he has won 10 years in a row.

The most exciting stories he’s covered? Lombardi says the 1998 Super Bowl. “Need I explain?” he asks, as well as the 1994 World Cup.

Lombardi says living and working in Denver means everything. “I’m home again with my family.”

In January, 2016, Vic joined Altitude Sports as the Studio Host for the Pre-Game, Halftime, and Post-Game coverage of the Denver Nuggets games. Additionally, he acts as a studio host for the All Sports Summit Pro Football Edition and takes part in further original programming aired by Altitude Sports.

Vic is married to Terri, a Denver schoolteacher. They have one son, Dante, and two daughters, Alexis and Isabella.

Lombardi also spends a lot of time with his large Italian family. His father came to the United States from Italy with a sixth grade education and became very successful here. That, says Lombardi, provides a great deal of inspiration.

Vic says his biggest challenge in life was landing his job in Denver, and his greatest disappointment was not getting the job earlier.
