Most Angelenos are knowledgeable in regard to the numerous clinics, walk-in and otherwise, all through the Los Angeles area, city and county. Whether you have a sick infant or are an elderly diabetic in need of foot care, there will be some establishment available where one may consult an allopathic physician or nurse-practitioner. (Having the insurance or cash to pay for treatment or even the visit is another issue, unfortunately for many here as elsewhere in this country.) Many of the said clinics are low-cost or arrangements may be made in the event patients are uninsured and/or indigent.
However, what if someone wishes to see an alternative or complementary specialist in this area? For a lot of people that would either mean “forget it!” or a trip to someplace outside of LA, possibly even at quite a distance. We do, though, have somewhere that is especially designed and ready to help those seeking natural health care–South Baylo University.
With two clinics in the area, one here in Los Angeles and another in Anaheim, it’s no stretch for local residents to get the holistic help needed in most instances. SBU has economical treatment available which is known by their own teaching staff to be what patients require, since they have not only taught those performing the procedures but have drafted the entire program. By means of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, students are not only learning hands-on to treat people, they are getting valuable knowledge by doing. What’s more, these future practitioners will become aware of what patients’ particular situations are all about: what makes them who they are, how they became ill, and how they respond (with ongoing treatment and follow-up available). Holistic health care, after all, teaches them to examine and treat the entire person, not just a piece of meat going through the building as if on a conveyor belt.
Conditions treated at the clinics include ailments ranging from acne to chemical dependence, plus various injuries, cancer, diabetes, asthma, and even infertility. As with acupuncture in general, there are many illnesses that may be called “modern” such as fibromyalgia, but which will respond to application of this ancient-but-current modality, since the meridians of the body are being used, unblocking energy, rather than drugs.
