SkinShift by Dr. Ruthie Harper

Creating Beauty From The Inside Out

Ruthie Harper, MD, is a leading physician in the areas of non-surgical aesthetics, DNA-based skin care solutions, nutritional medicine, and optimal health and wellness. Dr. Harper developed the SKINSHIFT® line of skin care products and nutritional supplements to improve the health and appearance of your skin as well as your overall health.

Dr. Harper began her career as a Board Certified Internist and was later promoted to Emergency Room Director at Doctor’s Hospital of Jefferson in Louisiana where she quickly realized that traditional medicine provides ways to treat the symptoms of disease, but is not designed to prevent disease or regain optimal health. She retraced her medical training back to basic biochemistry, realizing that if a person had perfect cellular function, they would be optimally healthy and disease free.

This knowledge led Dr. Harper to research and develop scientifically based health and beauty products that move beyond temporary fixes that use drugs or other technologies and transform both the health and the appearance of patients worldwide.

Passionate Doctor

Dr. Harper founded Nutritional Medicine Associates, her internationally recognized practice in Austin, Texas, in 1999. Since that time, she has consulted with more than 10,000 patients and offers the latest services and techniques in health, wellness, non-surgical aesthetics and skin care in her medical practice. Her ongoing success serving the health and beauty industries is based primarily on her innovative integration of research, nutritional science and advanced aesthetics. Dr. Harper provides patients with scientifically developed health protocols that transcend the temporary fixes offered by pharmaceuticals or other traditional medical treatments and utilizes innovative programs which focus on nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes, bioidential hormones and breakthrough beauty treatments.

Committed Researcher

Dr. Harper's success is in large part because of her extraordinary efforts to further the science of integrative health and non-surgical aesthetic transformations. She was one of the first aesthetic physicians selected to introduce platelet-rich plasma therapy into her aesthetics practice, which has provided extraordinary restorative results in patients everywhere. Her progressive medical care and aesthetic programs have helped her patients achieve optimal health and transformational beauty without surgery. Most recently, Dr. Harper's focus is on DNA Single Nucleotide Polymorphism's (SNP's) as a means of developing personalized skin care interventions based on a patient's unique genetic profile. She has followed the clinical results of thousands of patients now using genetically designed skin care and supplementation with the SKINSHIFT program. She has been a research associate at the University of Texas where she researched sub-clinical nutritional deficiencies and antioxidant treatment interventions. She has consulted for SpectraCell Laboratories where she performed research in functional nutrient analysis, and Pulse Health where she developed antioxidant and nutritional formulations respectively.

Innovative Practitioner

Using science as a foundation, Dr. Harper designs innovative treatment programs for patients seeking to optimize their overall health, beauty, and wellness. Her breakthrough treatments for macular degeneration and thyroid conditions make her a leading expert, frequently speaking at medical conferences across the nation. Her pioneering work also targets disease prevention, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, autoimmune conditions, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Dr. Harper’s approach to treating causes rather than symptoms in both weight management and skin care really resonated with me. It is also obvious by interacting with her and her striking appearance that she, too, follows what she recommends to those who seek her help and guidance.
