ABOUT US At the True Healing & Wellness Institute, our philosophy is driven by the knowledge that in order to achieve health and healing, there are some organized elements that have to be present. First, a patient needs the opportunity to provide their comprehensive health history to their doctor. Second, the physician needs to take the time to educate their patient on all of the most viable treatment options. Together, doctor and patient need to agree on, and implement, a comprehensive plan, monitor patient progress, and make the changes necessary to help the patient reach their health goals. At the True Healing & Wellness Institute, we listen, we educate, we organize, and we work together with patients to execute a personalized plan for True Healing.

Transformation Through Education – Learning How To Heal Change isn’t easy, but we believe that knowledge is a powerful and mandatory tool to help jump start the process. While traditional medicine falls back on the prescription pad and the surgical knife to help temporarily alleviate symptoms, we focus on educating patients about more long term and less invasive True Healing solutions. As opposed to asking a patient “where” it hurts, here at the Institute, we ask the question “why” does it hurt, and together we find the answer. We help patients discover emerging treatment options, and take the time to teach patients about the pros and cons, as they relate to each patient’s individual health situation, so that they can maximize their True Healing potential.

Personalized Medicine – Treating the Patient As A Whole This is what sets us apart from traditional medical set-ups, large health care corporations, and HMO’s. We want to know ALL about you, not just bits and pieces.

6 True Healing & Wellness Institute

We want you to experience True Healing. You will not see a different practitioner every time you come in for an appointment. This is truly personalized health care, not the compartmentalized treatment that so many patients receive when they are forced from one specialist to another, each focusing on one acute aspect of the patient’s health. We offer a unique, progressive, holistic based approach. Many patients are seeking alternatives to their current health care, with good reason. You deserve to experience the difference that is True Healing.

Finding The Root Cause – Your Symptoms Are A Sign of Something Deeper Patients often come to us frustrated, after years of dealing with health issues and being seen by various physicians. Whether it is due to relapsing symptoms such as pain and fatigue, or disease progression despite prior treatment, patients have a difficult time achieving the results they are hoping for. This isn’t because doctors are careless or incompetent, rather, it is a by product of the current medical paradigm which focuses on lessening symptoms. At True Healing, we recognize that this approach is not only ineffective at providing long-term results, or curing the individual, but often elicits unwanted side effects and drives the progression of a disease. True Healing occurs when a physician takes the time to properly identify underlying dysfunctions and properly address and remove triggering factors. This is how the innate healing processes can be restored.

Stimulate True Healing From Within – Your Body Holds Innate True Healing Wisdom ‘Vis Medicatrix-naturae’ – the body’s natural ability to heal itself – is one of the guiding principles of Naturopathic Medicine. At the Institute, our Naturopathic Doctors as well as our board certified Medical Doctors, believe strongly that the human body is designed to heal from within.


The abilities to recover, regenerate, and appropriately respond to a stressor, are all innate qualities of a healthy immune system. After repeated exposure to illnesses, toxins, pollutants, medications, injuries, and poor diets, our systems become overwhelmed and begin to stop “fighting” and start adapting – weakening our vitality over time. At the Institute, we we work to establish the conditions the body needs to heal, by removing the underlying triggers, and using natural therapies to stimulate your own True Healing response. Maximize Your True Healing Potential – Organize A Plan To Discover the Most Improved Version of You No one is perfect, but here at the Institute, we can help you organize a plan to become your best self. We all have intentions of living healthy, eating clean, exercising regularly, being pain free, looking young and experiencing the benefits of our mind, body and soul working in harmony. It doesn’t have to be a dream. We will motivate you, educate you and walk the journey alongside you as your goals become a reality. We are on the cutting edge of progressive health care and self-care, and pride ourselves on helping patients make positive transformations, one step at a time. Feel better and be beautiful, from the inside out! True Healing & Wellness Institute 9750 Miramar Rd #180 San Diego, CA 92126 Phone: (858) 564-8321 info@truehealingandwellnessinstitute.com

What Is Regenerative Medicine? 400 Words -----------------------Regenerative medicine seeks to replace tissue or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital issues, vs. the current clinical strategy that focuses primarily on treating the symptoms. The tools used to realize these outcomes are tissue engineering, cellular therapies, and medical devices and artificial organs. Combinations of these approaches can amplify our natural healing process in the places it is needed most, or take over the function of a permanently damaged organ. Regenerative medicine is a relatively new field that brings together experts in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, genetics, medicine, robotics, and other fields to find solutions to some of the most challenging medical problems faced by humankind. When injured or invaded by disease, our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend. What if it was possible to harness the power of the body to heal and then accelerate it in a clinically relevant way? What if we could help the body heal better? The promising field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. It is also working to create solutions for organs that become permanently damaged.

The goal of this approach is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases. Tissue engineering is a strategy where biologically compatible scaffolds are implanted in the body at the site where new tissue is to be formed. If the scaffold is in the geometric shape of the tissue that needs to be generated, and the scaffold attracts cells the outcome is new tissue in the shape desired. If the newly forming tissue is subjected to exercise as it forms, the outcome can be new functional engineered issue. Millions of patients have been treated with some form of tissue engineered devices, yet the field is in its infancy. The primary success stories have been with soft tissue regeneration. To learn more about some of the promising studies and clinical trials involving tissue engineering, click here. 2. Cellular Therapies coverimag#2Many millions of adult stem cells are found in every human. Our body uses stem cells as one way of repairing itself. Studies have illustrated that if adult stem cells are harvested and then injected at the site of diseased or damaged tissue, reconstruction of the tissue is feasible under the right circumstances. These cells can be collected from blood, fat, bone marrow, dental pulp, skeletal muscle and other sources.

How to Envision or Visualize Your Best Health Based on research in neuroscience, humans think in pictures. Even for people who say they aren’t ‘visual’, they are simply seeing images so fast they aren’t aware of it. If you have any doubt about this, notice the next time you’re worried about something, it’s usually a scene you’re playing out in your mind that you’re afraid will happen. Of course there’s lots of mental commentary too, but that moves slower than images and thus, tends to be easier to notice. A core tenet in Chinese Medicine is “Qi follows the mind”. Qi is life force, the very force pumping your blood, beating your heart, and conducting nerve impulses right now as you read these words. There are the unconscious, or automatic life force happenings, the things you don’t have to consciously direct, like the digestion of your last meal, and then there is conscious awareness, directed by choice. This is where you can affect your health in extremely positive ways by the use of visioning or visualizing. Visualizing is the very least you can do to bring about the very most in change. After a tipping point of regular imagery fed to your brain, your life force will cause that outcome at the level of your cells.

Let’s dive in to the three simple ways of affecting such powerful change in your health! 1. Get clear on the results you’re intending. It could be better sleep, less pain, or overall vitality. Clarity is key. If you aren’t clear, you’ll ping all over the place, which doesn’t work. Imagine your desired outcome as if it’s here right here and now in your present moment. Envision from this perspective. 2. See yourself in this desired result (in other words don’t watch yourself as if on an external screen, see yourself in the vision enjoying your outcome as you) and see as many details of the outcome as you can, movements, smells, textures, tastes, sights, colors, and any other vivid details you can playfully imagine. 3. Feel what you will feel (with the enhancement), right now. Gratitude, joy, blessed, whatever it is you’d expect to feel, have that experience now in your vision. Emotions are like rocket fuel for our visions and they move energy quickly. Visualizing with emotion is one of the fastest ways to shift matter (i.e. your body). Any or all of these elements may seem strange at first, but that’s only because it’s unfamiliar. The more you play with it, the more familiar it becomes, and the more you’ll see the changes over time. A key to the process is bypassing the mind. If your mind won’t let you imagine a pain free shoulder because right now it bloody hurts, then go broad and envision overall health. See and feel your whole body as vital and healthy, which will help settle the one or more parts that aren’t there yet. The idea is to be relaxed when you visualize, if you’re tense or resistant for any reason, try a different vision angle until you find one that helps you stay open and enjoy the process. Visualizing a few minutes at a time is all that’s necessary, as many times throughout the day as want. The key: don’t until your vision materializes! www.bestselfsmagazine.com

A leading cause of America’s obesity epidemic is the plethora of refined sugars in almost all the food we consume. Type 2 diabetes, has increased threefold in the past three decades, coinciding with the explosion of sugary products. Here is a partial list of other health ailments indirectly caused by over consumption of refined sugar: high blood pressure, ADD/ADHD, hypoglycemia, depression, acne, headaches, hardening of the arteries, fatigue, violent behavior, hyperactivity, aching extremities, and of course, tooth decay. The average American consumes over 30 teaspoons of sugar every day! It is recommended that we consume less than 10 teaspoons every day, but If you ask me, that’s still too much sugar. In the Standard American Diet (SAD), added sugar alone accounts for 496 calories per day! To give you an example:

32 True Healing & Wellness Institute

one teaspoon of sugar has 16 calories, a teaspoon of honey has 21 calories and you’ll get 136 calories, (8 teaspoons of sugar) from a 12-ounce can of soda. Most people have no idea as to the amount of added sugars in their food. There is sugar in almost every processed food that is consumed. Added sugars come in the form of granules, powders, and syrups that are cooked into foods or added at the table. The obvious ones: soda, cookies, cakes, candies, fruit drinks, doughnuts, ice cream, jams, etc. The not so obvious culprits: ketchup, potato chips, soup, peanut butter, pasta sauce, hamburgers, hotdogs, mayonnaise, salad dressing, cereal, crackers, and bread, to name a few. What is sugar? Refined (table) sugar comes from sugar beets or sugarcane. . You won’t find vitamins, minerals, enzymes, good fats, or fiber in this type of sugar.


* Natural (simple) sugar comes from real food such as: berries, bananas, oranges, apples, beans, nuts, whole grains, and vegetables. These real foods include plenty of fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, and phytochemicals. Refined sugar is addicting and has negative effects on the body. It saps your energy and depletes your body of important nutrients. It has also been shown to repeatedly elevate dopamine levels, which control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers in a way that is similar to many drugs including tobacco, cocaine, and heroin. Much research has been done to show that the link between sugar and cancer is real. How do we even begin to lessen our sugar consumption? We can start by being conscious of the sugar we are consuming. As it comes in many disguises, we need to start reading labels: sugar, cane juice, cane syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice concentrate, honey, molasses, and malt syrup

are a few of the hidden sugars in our processed foods. Don’t buy products that have these ingredients in them! Check the grams of sugar in foods that you automatically think are healthy, such as yogurt. There is a lot of sugar in many “healthy” yogurts and other supposed health foods. Focus on whole foods whenever possible, and emphasize nutrient-dense sources of sugar like berries, whole grains, nuts, vegetables, carrots, beets, apples, oranges, bananas, and other fruits, etc. Cut out the processed foods in your diet. I just came across a really cool app called, “Sugar Rush”. It tells you how much sugar is in your food by using the barcode. I highly recommend getting it. So, you tell me….is sugar your friend, or foe? It can be both!!
