About Us

Upon moving to the Coachella Valley, I began a personal journey to discover all I could about the renowned healing and wellness of the region. I had heard that people from all over the world come to the Desert to heal and get healthy.

In a short time, I came to understand that the Valley offers both top notch medical care and a vast array of preventive medicine and wellness. I also realized that the Valley is a leader in “integrated health care” where conventional medicine and alternative practices are coming together. The Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine defines this practice as “medicine that confirms the importance of the practitioner/patient relationship; focuses on the whole person; is evidence-based; and uses all appropriate modalities, health care professionals and disciplines to achieve health and healing.”

Desert Health ® was created to promote this union and the Valley’s many medical facilities, modalities, and practitioners who keep us healthy and help us heal. Those professionals partaking in this practice all share the common goal of putting the patient first. Desert Health ® ’s goal is to promote prevention and “whole person healing,” to recognize accomplishments, celebrate community, revel in sports, educate and inform to the best of our ability, and to encourage our readers to “get out and do!”

We are a complimentary paper for locals and visitors alike found throughout the Valley.

We thank you for reading and wish you the best of health!
