Roby Mitchell, MD, aka “Dr. Fitt,” practices integrative/functional medicine in Amarillo, TX. He graduated with honors from Texas Tech University School of Medicine, Lubbock, and won a fellowship in cardiovascular pharmacology working under pioneering physiologist PKT Pang, studying the pathophysiology of hypertension. While at Texas Tech, Dr. Mitchell participated in an exchange program with Jinan University Medical School in China. His exposure to traditional Chinese medicine opened his mind to modes of healing outside the narrow options of conventional Western medicine.
Dr. Mitchell’s own personal struggle hypertension, overweight, insulin resistance and arthritis led him to revisit the philosophies of biochemical rebalancing with diet and supplements. His success in restoring his own health reshaped his practice approach, which is now focused on reversing “toximation”—the inter-connected processes of endocrine dysregulation, oxidative stress, and chronic systemic inflammation—through nutritional change, exercise, and hormone rebalancing.
Dr. Mitchell has studied and practiced with some of the leaders in nutrition, exercise & integrative medicine including: Hugh Riordan, MD, Kenneth Cooper, MD, Jonathan Wright, MD, Alan Gaby, MD, and Christiane Northrop, MD. He is an avid triathlete, his penchance for fitness earning him the nickname, “Dr. Fitt.” Visit Dr. Mitchell’s website at: www.drfitt.com.
