Community & Group-Based Healthcare

When it comes to health, a lot of consumers struggle to make that initial decision, that decision to finally do something about their health.

Which got me thinking, how can we create a more favorable environment for consumers to come to that decision faster? What supportive environment would be needed for them to thrive in the health journey?

I believe today's guest, Dr. Michelle Peris, has compelling answers for both.

As the clinical director of the Poppy Clinic and creator of The Wild Collective, a community health initiative focused on health education and women’s empowerment, Dr. Michelle Peris has pioneered community & group-based healthcare:

"Without community, many patients struggle with consistently sticking with integrative health programs."

"Long-term support from like-minded individuals is vital to increasing buy-in and commitment... because when we hear others tell stories similar to our own, it helps normalize our own experiences."

"That can help open people up to sharing more about their own stories, and as this happens, the community grows stronger as a whole,” explains Dr. Michelle Peris, ND.


  • “Community medicine and group health have a compelling solution for helping patients and community members at large start to take radical responsibility.” (3:29-3:39 | Dr. Peris)
  • “When it comes to integrative medicine, it’s not a quick fix approach. It’s about really having high buy-in and knowing that this is a lifetime shift in our thinking, in our lifestyle habits, in all of those pieces and so we really do need support longterm to be able to be successful.” (4:35-4:53 | Dr. Peris)
  • “When I started to put the women that I served together, a lot of powerful things happened.” (4:55-5:00 | Dr. Peris)
  • “Taking imperfect action is the only way we are going to be able to bring new ideas and innovative opportunities forward.” (7:19-7:25 | Dr. Peris)
